Canada: Leading global destination for work

Canada has emerged as the premier global destination for employment, according to a report from Givetastic.

Following research with the use of data from Google, Canada came out on top as a dream job destination, given the abundance of job opportunities in the country as well as its robust healthcare system and top-tier public education.

As the top search in 56 out of 164 countries, Canada is an inviting option for over a third of the world’s countries (34.1%).  

“Canada is a great option for people looking to emigrate. It offers ample employment opportunities, free healthcare and an excellent education system. What’s not to love?” said Givetastic.

The country that comes second is Germany, which is followed closely by Qatar. The UK came third, while Switzerland and Australia tied out on fifth ranking.

Canada’s two-tier immigration system includes the Federal Express Entry system which encompasses programs such as Federal Skilled Worker (FSW), Federal Skilled Trades (FST), and Canadian Experience Class (CEC), and the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP) across the country.

“Quebec is Dubai’s closest competitor, with the Canadian province coming in as the top search in 28 out 150 countries including Colombia, Mexico, Morocco and Cameroon,” says Givetastic.
