A brief overview of Canada residency.

Canada, situated in the northern part of North America, shares borders with the USA to the south and Alaska to the northwest. Spanning from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean, and with the Arctic Ocean to the north, it is the second-largest country in the world by total area. Despite its vast size, Canada has a low population density, with only four inhabitants per square kilometer.

The country boasts numerous lakes and holds a significant portion of the world's freshwater. As one of the wealthiest nations, Canada's economy has been steadily growing since the 1990s, resembling the USA in its market-oriented system and high living standards. It's a major player in the service industry, while also being a net exporter of energy and a key agricultural supplier.

Canada's strong economy, combined with its stable political and social environment, makes it a highly desirable destination for living, working, investing, and raising a family.
