Immigration
Immigration is very important to Canada and the Canadian government, and there are many people that Immigrate to Canada each year. There are many reasons for why people want to move to Canada, because this country offers multiple services and programs for people who need them, and give them rights other countries don’t.
A very important right is personal safety. In Canada, crime rates are low compared to many other countries in the world. This is very important for people who come from countries where there is war, and safety ended for them outside a room. In Canada, people are free to go wherever they please without having to worry if they are being followed or not.

There are also many, many people who come to Canada for education, specifically in Ontario. Ontario’s universities are among the best recognized internationally. Some of these include University of Toronto and York University. There were at least 50,000 foreign born students in school in 2012, and about 25% of students in large cities were immigrants who came to Canada specifically for education (according to Statistics Canada). An example of when people moved to Canada for religious and cultural freedom was at the time of the Underground Railroad. Before the American Civil War, African Americans were kept as slaves and treated terribly in America. To find freedom, these people moved to Canada using the Underground Railroad to start a new life and practice their own culture instead of working for others. There were approximately 30,000 slaves who came to Canada at that time.
Just as immigrants come from many different places in the world, they settle in different places in Canada. Most Immigrants tend to settle in cities, either in Ontario or British Columbia. The simple reason why people settle in cities is because it is easier. Support systems available in cities help immigrants settle in and adapt more comfortably to their new home. For example, there are English and French classes offered to the people who cannot speak Canada’s official languages, so they feel more comfortable when interacting with other people. Another reason why people move to these provinces is because of economy. Ontario and British Columbia both have good economies and a variety of companies that people can work for. This helps immigrants to support their families (something most people cannot do in their homeland), and also be an important part of their community.
Most people settle in Ontario for job opportunities, and for these newcomers there are many financial incentives offered, especially by banks. Banks offer services such as a free savings/chequing account or a safe deposit box for a period of time, easy access to a credit card, and higher interest rates on saving plans and investment programs. There are also a number of incentives in British Columbia not only for newcomers, but also for residents living there. This is also a benefit because those people would tell their family and friends about the services offered in British Columbia, and then those people would come to live there as well. Some of these services include the energy efficiency incentive programs, the small business program and transportation incentives. These services are very important to immigrants because it helps them to support them and their families until they can do so themselves.

Inter-provincial Migration
Instead of leaving Canada as a country in search for an easier or better life, there are many people each year that leave their province or territory to move to another. This action, interprovincial migration, has a big impact on a province’s economy and there are many reasons...
