Why Panama is the best country for Canadians
The immigration trends in the 21st century are quite interesting. While the past century showed us a clear migration path from third-world countries to large powers like the US, Canada, or Europe, things seem to be changing.
In this article, we explore the options available for a person that decides to leave their big brother state in search of new, freer horizons. Moreover, Mundo helps you turn this idea into a reality with services like overseas real estate investment.
With one of our offices in the Canal country, we help you move to Panama and buy an apartment in Panama from abroad.
Massive migration out of Canada
Mundo has recently found out that Canadians are leaving the country in record numbers. There’s something odd about the fact that a country that we see as a mecca for immigrants is now under the opposite trend. What are the reasons for this exodus and what can we do about it?
The numbers from Stats Canada throw interesting results showing that there’s a 215% increase in the fourth quarter of 2021 compared to 2020. In total, this equals 16,000 people leaving the country to find new horizons and 55,000 people leaving Canada in 2021. Since 1974, this is the larger flow of migration away from Canada, which means it’s the first time in 48 years that we see this kind of phenomenon.
Right now, experts are wondering whether this is an indicator of a future trend or if there is an underlying issue causing this massive migration.
Prime minister Trudeau enacted emergency powers in January 2022, which can be one of the reasons why Canadians no longer feel comfortable at home. However, the stats show that the migration trends began before that, in the fourth quarter of 2021.
To be fair, the balance is still on the side of Canada as there are more people migrating in than migrating away. This is understandable since the country still represents an opportunity for many people to have a better salary and quality of life. This is very similar to what happens with the Latino migration in the US.
So, what is going on in Canada that triggered this amount of desertion?
The Prime Minister, Pierre Trudeau, has been accused of enacting anti-democratic measures and tough covid-19 restrictions. Earlier this year, the government suspended civil liberties so that they could dismantle the “Freedom Convoy”, a protest that set up a blockade on the streets of downtown Ottawa.
This affects the finances and freedoms of many Canadians with a threat of regulating Internet content and seizing of assets of trucking companies even if the company was not involved in the protest.
Although the government and its supporters allegedly have good reasons for these measures, the Canadian people are having an unpleasant feeling that their rights are being eroded. Bill C-67 in Ontario, for example, is considered to be quite dubious and the Prime Minister is trying to push a censorship bill at a federal level. If we add the emergency powers applied due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we’ve got ourselves a concerning situation.
Remote work and better climate
However, although these measures are reason enough to be concerned, there are other social phenomena inherent in our time that we cannot dismiss. For the first time in history remote work is not only possible but, in many cases, highly recommended. Engineers, IT experts, accountants, marketing professionals, and social media managers can now work anywhere in the world. If we consider the fact that Canada is very expensive and has bad weather, this makes us wonder if we can stretch out our Canadian salary in another country with lower costs of living and more sunny days.
In general, it all seems to point out to a clear trend: look for cheaper places while you maintain your home office and earn the same salary as you earned back home.
