Information is the key for making a life changing decision such as moving to another country on a permanent basis. Internet is filled with misinformed articles on how easy it is to live in Canada, and how great is the advantage in terms of welfare, when compared to any other country in the world.
Yes, Canada is one of the safest, cleanest, most immigrant friendly countries in the world; but that does not necessarily imply that everybody is welcomed or that once accepted, you and your family will have a free house, health insurance or education. It is also false that the labor market will provide you with six figure opportunities the day after you get off the plane.
As any other first world nation, the quality of life and education is higher than the rest of the world. It is also important to mention that Canada provides welfare and a brighter future for young couples and families in a multicultural, understanding and supportive governmental system.
