Immigration is a long and complex process and relocating to another
country is not easy. Before one decides to make an application for
immigration to Canada, one should ask a question to oneself, "Why do I want to
immigrate to Canada?" and compare the pros and cons of immigrating to Canada with other
destinations for immigration, countries such as Australia, New Zealand,
UK and USA.
However, one of the most important question one must ask before
making a decision for applying for immigration to Canada is, "What
are the employment opportunities available in Canada for my occupation
in the long run?"

In the last several years, most immigrants to Canada have settled in three major metros of Canada -
Montreal (province of Quebec), Toronto (province of Ontario) and Vancouver (province of British Columbia). Since the major bulk of new and prospective immigrants to Canada chose to settle in these three major cities, other cities located in other provinces of Canada such as Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and the Maritimes do not receive enough immigrants to meet the shortage of skilled workers. Due to the ever-increasing demand for skilled workers in these provinces,
the provincial governments entered in to separate agreements with Citizenship and Immigration Canada department to permit them to devise
their own immigration policies. These agreements allow the said provinces to select their own immigrants. However, the final medical and security clearance is solely controlled by the Federal government.
Many skilled worker class immigrants, who may not qualify under the Federal immigration regulations, have the option to look in to the possibility of applying under one of the provincial immigration programs.
