Ottawa, February 09, 2012 — The Come to Canada Wizard, which helps people determine if they are eligible to immigrate to this country, continues to gain popularity among prospective immigrants and newcomers. The Wizard has recorded more than 750,000 visits since it was launched six months ago.
Close to 90 percent of users say they would recommend the Come to Canada Wizard to someone they know.
“The Come to Canada Wizard was very useful in helping me better understand the requirements for immigrating to Canada,” said one user. “It also allowed me to know what professional skills are in high demand.”
The Come to Canada tool is interactive. It presents users with a series of questions to determine which federal immigration option best suits their specific circumstances. It then leads users through the application steps and provides instructions and forms.
“The Wizard is just one of the many steps in our modernization process to continually improve our services to immigrants,” said Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney.
“This online tool makes the application process easier, more reliable and helps avoid potentially fraudulent practices,” added Minister Kenney.
The Come to Canada Wizard also helps the department to be more efficient, which is a benefit to all Canadians. For more information, visit the Come to Canada Wizard at: www.cic.gc.ca/cometocanada.
