Learn More About Canada

The first step in your immigration process should be to learn more about Canada. Canada is located in North America and consists of ten provinces and three territories. Located in the northern part of the continent, it extends from the Atlantic to the Pacific and northward into the Arctic Ocean. Canada is the world’s second-largest country by total area and borders Alaska the largest state in the United States. Its common border with the United States is also the world’s longest land border shared by the same two countries.

Canada’s land has been inhabited for millennia by various Aboriginal peoples. Beginning in the late 15th century, British and French colonial expeditions explored and later settled the region’s Atlantic coast. France ceded nearly all of its colonies in North America to the United Kingdom in 1763 after the French and Indian War, which was essentially the North American theatre of the Seven Years’ War. In 1867, with the union of three British North American colonies through Confederation, Canada was formed as a federal dominion of four provinces. This began an accretion of provinces and territories and a process of increasing autonomy, culminating in the Canada Act of 1982.


Canada is a federal state governed as a parliamentary democracy and a constitutional monarchy, with Queen Elizabeth II as its head of state. The country is officially bilingual and multicultural at the federal level, with a population of approximately 37.9 million as of 2021. Canada’s advanced economy is one of the largest in the world, relying chiefly upon its abundant natural resources and well-developed trade networks, especially with the United States, with which it has had a long and complex relationship.

Canada is known for having many lakes, with around 3 million lakes and rivers. The Five Great Lakes are Lake Huron, Superior, Michigan, Erie, and Ontario. These lakes are a major part of the physical and cultural heritage of Canada. More than half of the population live in the province of Ontario and Quebec. The most urban places are Vancouver, Montreal, Toronto, and Ottawa. Popular tourist destinations are Niagara Falls, CN Tower, Banff National Park, Ottawa’s Parliament Hill, and Old Quebec. Toronto and Montreal — have been recognized as world-class cities in which to live and work for their cleanliness and safety, and for their cultural activities and attractive lifestyles.

The province of Alberta is the leader of production and natural gas in Canada. Saskatchewan is the main agricultural province in Canada, and farmers grow around 45% of Canada’s grains, like wheat, canola, flax, and rye. 

With a 99% literacy rate, it is proven that Canadians place great importance on learning and have developed a first-rate education system with high standards.
