People all over the world became more interested in immigrating to Canada during the COVID-19 pandemic, a study conducted by World Education Services reveals.
The non-profit enterprise, which provides academic credential services for Canada's Express Entry economic immigration programs, conducted surveys in April, June and August of 480,822 people who had applied for those services in the past two years.
The results show people all over the world increasingly saw Canada as a good place to live as the pandemic raged, with many expecting Canada to fare better than their home countries.
"Respondents continue to expect COVID-19 to have a more negative impact on economic conditions in their home country than in Canada," the authors of the study state. "The negative perception of economic conditions in the respondents' home country remained high at 80 to 81 per cent from April to August.
"However, a decreasing number of respondents, 56 per cent in August, down from 68 per cent in April, expected negative economic conditions in Canada."
The idea that Canada will do better than their home countries is fuelling a greater interest in immigration to Canada.
