The Secret to Canada’s Economic Success
TORONTO, Canada – Experts and Economists are scratching their heads this year as they try to understand the data from the world market.
Canadian success slowly but surely has been climbing to the top of the Global market and, yet again, Canada will be sitting at the big boy’s table this year.
In 2017 Canada experienced the largest job growth in close to a decade. Now in 2018, Canada’s economy will grow 3.2% beating the United States and taking the title of #1 in the G7.
Canada just had the strongest 6 months of job growth in nearly a decade, says StatsCan. We will never stop working to grow the middle class.

The Immigration Experts here at ItsCanadaTime are not surprised. In fact, we believe it is directly attributed to the following factors.
Equality and Religious Freedom Actually Pay Off! Wierd…
Thanks to the government’s stance on equality and inclusion, Canada has been a really popular destination for those fleeing persecution in their current countries.
Most recently Canada has been getting a lot of applicants from American residents who are looking for better opportunities and asylum.
In fact, on 2017’s American election night, the Canadian Immigration website crashed due to an overload of traffic from U.S. IP addresses.
Not surprisingly on January 27th, 2017 President Trump issued an executive order to halt all refugee admission and barring immigration from 7 Muslim majority countries.
This month, President Trump also allegedly expressed his feeling on not allowing immigration from “s—hole countries” – referring to Central America and African countries.
Canada’s immigrants from these supposed ” s#&t hole countries” (according to a 2011 consensus) are contributing to Canada’s economy more than immigrants coming from Europe, the UK, and Scandinavia. Not only are the average wages higher for immigrants from Central America and Africa, but they also have more education degrees and more than 60% are currently employed (beating the “Norway,” countries by 10%).
Canada Positively Targets International Students
In the most current study, the Canadian Trade Commission recorded that Canada Pocketed $11.4 Billion from nearly half a million international students, living and studying in Canada during 2014.
Just so you understand how significant that number is… International students’ Canadian tuition did more for the Canadian economy than the export of wheat, lumber, and automotive parts.
More importantly, the study found that because of this amazing contribution to the economy, Canada was able to sustain more than 123,000 Jobs.
Canada’s Programs Draw the Best Talent
Many immigration programs including those created in 2017 were created to bring the best, most highly skilled workers to the region.
In the first two months of The Global Skilled Workers program – July and August of 2017 – over 1,600 were accepted into Canada, out of 2,077 total applicants. That’s an 80% approval rate! The majority of these immigrants contributed to Canada’s technology sector.
Thanks to the Global Skills Program, Canada’s demand for tech workers was already met by August of 2017 and has thus far made Toronto, Canada the next Silicon Valley.
Canada’s Immigrants Sweeten the Pot
Tareq Hadhad, Syria, Owner of “Peace By Chocolate”
Just 8 months after moving to Canada, Syrian Refugee, Tareq Hadhad gave birth to a small chocolate factory and cleverly named it Peace By Chocolate. The family operation sold 1,500 boxes within the first 3 hours of opening.
To meet with the demand of its customers, and worldwide success, the chocolate factory is currently looking to expand to a space that is at least 20 times bigger than the current workshop.
Dr. Ziad Nasreddine, Lebanon, Neurologist
This month Donald Trump Aced a cognitive exam to prove he was not suffering from what skeptics believed was a declining mental state.
What’s the connection you ask?
The Montreal Cognitive Assessment was created by non-other than Canada’s esteemed Doctor Ziad Nasreddine, a Canadian immigrant from Lebanon.
You can’t help but love the irony in this story. To prove his mental capability the president actually benefited from the contributions of an immigrant from a Muslim country.
Keinan Abdi Warsame, Somalia, Rapper/Musician
Also known worldwide as “K’Naan,” Keinan Abdi Warsame arrived with his family in Toronto when he was just 13 years old. K’Naan became an international superstar in 2010, when his hit song ‘Wavin’ Flag’ became the theme song for the FIFA World Cup.
Apart from his enormous success, Keinan devotes a large chunk of his time performing to raise money for various causes and donations. In 2011 Warsame teamed up with Bono to raise awareness for a drought in East Africa.
