A recent study by Top Move experts analyzed online searches to identify the top 10 countries most interested in moving to Canada. To ensure fair comparison, search volumes were adjusted for population size, revealing searches per 100,000 people. Additionally, quality of life and cost of living data were included to highlight the motivations behind relocation.
Iceland is the most interested country in moving to Canada with the highest interest per capita. Although the quality of life in Iceland is higher than in Canada, the Icelanders are still keen to relocate, due to the highest cost of living on the list.
Lebanon holds the 2nd spot on the list of countries most interested in moving to Canada. The motivation for this interest is driven by Lebanon's lower quality of life (lowest on the list), despite its cost of living being lower than that in Canada.
The 3rd most interested country in moving to Canada is Ireland. This interest is driven by Ireland's lower quality of life and higher cost of living. Additionally, the absence of a language barrier adds to Canada's appeal as a destination for moving.
New Zealand is the 4th most interested country in moving to Canada. The higher cost of living contributes to its ranking, despite having a higher quality of life than in Canada.
Singapore ranks 5th on the list of countries most interested in moving to Canada. Singapore's good quality of life comes with higher living costs, so moving to Canada might offer better financial stability.
The United Kingdom shows the 6th highest interest in moving to Canada. This trend is primarily driven by the lower cost of living in Canada, even though the UK has a higher quality of life.
Next on the list, with the 7th highest interest in moving to Canada, is Israel. Aside from the geopolitical situation, the main driving factors behind this interest are a higher quality of life and reduced living costs that Canada presents.
Finland is the 8th country most interested in moving to Canada. Finnish residents, while enjoying a high quality of life (ranking second), are drawn to Canada for its economic opportunities, given the more affordable cost of living.
The 9th country interested in moving to Canada is Norway. With a higher cost of living, Norwegians are keen to relocate to Canada for a better financial environment.
Saudi Arabia completes the list of the countries most interested in moving to Canada with 5 times less interest than in the leading Iceland. The level of interest is nearly the same as in Norway, yet Saudi Arabia has a lower cost of living and a lower quality of life compared to Canada.
