Ottawa, November 16, 2011
- The Come to Canada Wizard, which helps people determine if they are eligible to come to Canada, has recorded more than 400,000 visits since being launched last August.
“This is one way that my Department is creating a more responsive, transparent and efficient immigration system that benefits applicant, immigrants and Canadians alike,” said Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney.
The Come to Canada tool presents users with a series of questions and, based on their answers, matches them with the federal immigration option that best suits their specific circumstances. It then leads them to a page that breaks down the application steps and provides instructions and forms.
Based on comments from users, over 90% have found Come to Canada to be user friendly and almost the same number say they would recommend the tool to someone they know. “The Come to Canada Wizard is simple, concise and self-explanatory. I would certainly recommend it to others,” wrote one user.
“Steps are easy to follow and understand,” noted another. “In 15 minutes I understood whether I was eligible to apply to come to Canada under the Federal Skilled Worker Program.”
