Mexicans Moving to Canada

Canadian companies are reaching out to Mexican immigrants which are already frustrated by US restrictions. The Canadian government has been making an attempt in current weeks to be a magnet for students and skilled workers from all over the world. Canadian companies promising jobs and visas are furthermore attracting Mexican professionals to move to Canada.

Canada has its arms open to Mexican immigrants and the United States has its arms closed. It's as simple as that, accountant Marcos Ramirez Posadas said as he stood lined up with other visa applicants outside the Canadian Embassy in Mexico City.

The cause, immigration specialists say, is that Canada needs further people to fill the gap in its economy and to better sustain from global financial crisis. Mexicans are enthusiastic to fill the need. Previous week, the Canadian Embassy's switchboard was flooded after local television aired an advertisement from an immigration law firm concerning moving to Canada, embassy presenter Luis Archundia said. None of the fresh ads has been positioned by the Canadian government itself, he said.

Canada has an easy-to-follow skill-based immigration system. The U.S. system is more slanted, with consular officials exercise the power to approve or refuse applications without clarification.

CIC said it would spend more to accelerate citizenship applications and vowed to triple citizenship approvals for parents and grandparents of immigrants. While they're coming up for citizenship, those people will get five-year, multiple-entry visas to visit their children in Canada.

That kind of greeting is drawing Mexicans by the thousands. The figure of legal, temporary workers in Canada from Mexico rose approximately 69 percent, to 55,344 from 23,261, from 2003 to 2010, the newest year for which statistics are obtainable.

I have a friend in Mexico that I would love to see move here to Canada. He wishes to live a simple life away from the problems of his home country and have a chance to start new elsewhere. He works hard to achieve not only his university but his English skills also by taking an English class in Mexico. I support and admire his decision and his guts to leave and go where he has no family. He makes me very proud to call him my friend and I truly hope the best for him always. I will be there for him as his first friend in Canada, no question about it.
