Why choose Canada

Apart from a great climate and vast amount of activities, Canada has one of the highest living standards in the world.

It offers one of the most efficient and safest banking in the world. With the latest high-tech systems the top standard has been maintained for many years. 

It was quickly able to recover from the recent global economic crisis and this is down to keeping conservative, even old-fashioned lending standards, such as requiring substantial deposits and proof of income for mortgages. Canadian banks also set aside high levels of asset portfolio - going beyond international banking standards - so they can weather losses on defaulting loans and recessionary storms from the south.

Education is highly valued in Canada. Primary education is free, paid by the taxes, and many continue to post-secondary education after the high school, as this is considered to advance them in future.

Canada advertises one of the highest life expectancies (about 80 years) and lowest infant morality rates of industrialized countries, which many attribute to Canada's health care system. Although a debate of access to the services is very strong, the quality is second to none.
