HSBC's David Norton said, "We have seen that there is a distinct trade-off between income and overall quality of life. Many of the top performers in our first report, which examined the best places to make and save money, have scored towards the bottom of this report's league table. What is clear is that the locations where salaries may not be as high, such as Canada and Australia, are where expats are really enjoying not only an increased quality of life but are also finding it easy to fit in to their new communities".
Most expats in Canada are skilled workers who migrated to the country on a Canadian Skilled Worker Visa. Currently, Citizenship and Immigration Canada has a Priority Occupation List, a list of occupations in demand in the country, and potential migrants with occupations on this list are eligible for skilled immigration to Canada without the requirement of having a job offer from a Canadian employer. For example, people with an occupation of plumber, welder, or bricklayer will be able to migrate to Canada as a matter of priority with the potential to arrive within months of beginning the application process.
