When we asked people why foreigners move to Canada, they responded...

"Canada has a diverse culture, great public services, an excellent education system and a high standard of living. It is also a multicultural society that welcomes people from all parts of the world. The country also offers numerous job opportunities, a low cost of living, and a high quality of life. Furthermore, Canada is renowned for its beautiful landscape and has a wide range of outdoor activities to enjoy. Additionally, Canada boasts a safe and secure environment and a strong support network of social and government services. These attractive features are what entice many expats to move to Canada," explained one expat living in Canada.

" Montreal is an international city that attracts people for a variety of reasons. Montreal's economy is the second largest in Canada. As far as expats that move there for work, the largest industries include aerospace, electronics, pharma, printed goods, software, telecom, textile and apparel manufacturing, tobacco, petrochemicals, and transportation. According to CanadaStop0100, Montreal's top employers include such international heavyweights as Bristol-Meyers Squibb (Jobs), Sandoz Jobs, Dassault Systemes (Jobs, and many, many more. There are retirees who will spend part of the year in Canada (U.S. expats who live there up to 180 days can be there without the need of a visa) - visit Travel.State.Gov's Canada Page for more information). Montreal, and other places in the Province of Quebec and its rich French heritage, such as Quebec City, have a lot to offer in terms of cultural experiences for expats. ," said another in Montreal, Canada.
