Immigration is a long and draining process, but the results are always worth the effort. Since most of us have been confined to our homes in 2020, search engines have been especially active. Whenever there is a question to ask, we turn to Google.
Remitly conducted a new study recently to examine the search volume of words and phrases connected with immigration and shifting abroad. The scope of the study was massive and it included more than one hundred countries.
Considering how popular Canada has become as an immigration destination in the last few years, it should come as no surprise that the country topped the list in the study. People from 29 countries showed willingness to immigrate to Canada.
According to the Global Peace Index, Canada is the sixth most peaceful country in the world. Over the years, Canada has tried to make its immigration process as accommodating as possible for immigrants from all over the world. Offering over 100 immigration pathways, free universal healthcare and incredible job opportunities, Canada has managed to transform into an immigrant’s dream. Since Canada plans to attract a million immigrants[RM1] in the next three years, this is welcome news.

Results of the study
In the Remitly study, Japan followed Canada on the list with only 13 countries to its name. Spain, Germany, and Qatar filled up the rest of the spots in the top five. While Australia came sixth, the United States was ninth.
Africa proved to be the continent that is most willing to move to Canada, with 13 countries preferring Canada over all other countries.
If you are interested in staying and working in Canada for an indefinite period, you should secure permanent residence[RM1] . As a permanent citizen, you will be treated the same as Canadian citizens. You can immigrate via Express Entry, the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Family Class Immigration or any of the other pathways offered by Canada.
Asia has always been an excellent immigrant source for Canada. People from countries like India, Qatar, Pakistan and Azerbaijan are willing to move to Canada, according to the study.
Remitly also found that eight North American countries are interested in moving to Canada. These include:
- Antigua and Barbuda
- Dominican Republic
