Both the destinations are extremely popular with migrants, however each has it’s own unique advantages over the other which happens to be the deciding factor for the general population. Let’s take a quick look at what differentiates these two when it comes to the overall living experience
Job opportunities: Both the countries offer some really great job opportunities, especially for the immigrant sector. There are some jobs that are better in one country than in the other – for example, opportunities for nurses are better in Canada than in Australia.
Canada is better known for the manufacturing sector jobs, while Australia is more widely popular for its US IT firms.
Cost of living: The cost of living is very high in Australia due to its housing taxes. Housing in Canada is far more affordable at the moment when compared to Australia. Regular living expenses also tend to be higher in Australia than they are in Canada.
Diversity: Australia as well as Canada have a widely diverse population, but with different ethnicity factors. Canada has a dominant Chinese, Indian, Pakistani, Sri Lankan & a Jamaican base.
Australia, on the other hand, has a more diverse population, with Indonesian, Thai and Lebanese as the dominant communities, and small Central or South American communities.
Ease of application: Typically, the visa application process for Canada is easier, despite the recent emphasis on having fluency in English or French. While both function on a points-based process and have a preferred skills list, Canada does have far fewer visa sub-classes and less stringent visa application assessments.
Permanent residency: Gaining permanent residency for Australia or Canada is all based on eligibility and factors that affect the immigrant’s future prospects within the country such as field of expertise, work experience, references and relations in the country.
