Canada is known for its tolerance, respect of human rights,
and social justice. Internationally, Canada has a strong record
of standing against discrimination and injustice. A respect
for human rights and personal freedom is deeply held, and
both are constitutionally enshrined in Canada's Charter of

plural, multicultural society. Canada always needs the skills,
talents and enthusiasm of newcomers to continue to grow.
Today, Canada is home to immigrants from all over the world,
and it continues to attract people from all over the world
who want to migrate to Canada and live there.

stability, prosperity and peace.

rich in natural resources.
Despite the abundance of natural wealth, real estate in Canada
is cheap compared with other developed countries.
Add to this the fact that Canada's 32 million residents enjoy
virtually unlimited recreational opportunites and you might
be forgiven for thinking you have found paradise.
Unfortunately, for many migrants, Canada has been less than
paradise. The Canadian government is aware that many migrants
have struggled economically in Canada and it is now striving
to improve migrant-outcomes.
