Canada’s economy is quite diverse, with a focus on natural resources (mining, gas exploration, oil etc.), agriculture, telecommunications, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology. Canada is part of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with the USA and Mexico.
The Canadian government actively encourages people to settle and work in Canada
as permanent residents with the opportunity after several years to attain citizenship. This is because for the past two decades, immigrants have contributed to the economic wealth of the country more than any other group, contributing billions of dollars in investment and are often in the high earners wage bracket (therefore paying higher rates of tax).
