Canadian Immigration

There are a lot of misconceptions about the Canadian immigration process and they have really misled people and made them drop the chance of immigrating to the land of dreams – Canada.

Here we will bust all the popular myths about the Canadian immigration process to help you start the process with the right information. Certainly, statistics do not lie, the Canadian immigration reality is far from the reality. So, here we go debunk them with you. 

1) Immigration increases crime in Canada

According to the survey by International Centre for Criminal Law Reform and Criminal Justice Policy, immigrants are much less involved in illegal activities than the ones born in Canada.

It’s very essential to know that every foreign-trained professional credential is reviewed by an accredited Canadian assessment body to be employed in their field.
