🌎 Expansion of the Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) Program

Good news for travellers from low-risk countries! Budget 2023 plans to expand the ETA program, making Canada a more attractive destination for trusted travellers. The government is set to invest $50.8 million over four years to make this possible. Stay tuned as we keep you posted on the list of eligible countries, which will be released soon.

🇺🇦 Support for Ukrainians

Canada stands in solidarity with Ukrainians during these trying times. The Budget provides further details on supporting Ukrainians seeking refuge in Canada by extending the Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel (CUAET) to July 15, 2023. Ansari Immigration is here to help those affected navigate their immigration options and start a new chapter in Canada.

🇫🇷 Boosting Francophone Immigration

Parlez-vous français? Budget 2023 proposes $123.2 million to boost Francophone immigration in Canada. This includes support for Canadian employers to recruit French-speaking foreign workers and increased support for these immigrants upon arrival. At Ansari Immigration, we're proud to help Francophones find their place in Canada's vibrant and diverse communities.

📈 Canada's Economic Outlook

Despite a temporary slowdown in economic growth, Canada remains one of the most stable economies in the G7. With a 126% job recovery rate and the strongest projected economic growth among G7 nations in 2023, the Canadian economy continues to thrive. This presents fantastic opportunities for newcomers to build successful lives in Canada.
