What you need to know about expatriate Canada

Courses

A couple years ago, Canada was in a tough spot.

The economy was in crisis, and people wanted to leave.

Canada’s housing market had a bubble, and many expatriates were struggling to make ends meet.

The country had the highest rate of expatriation in the world, at 15 percent.

But the crisis didn’t end with the bubble.

Over the past decade, expatriations from the United States, Australia, and other countries have steadily grown.

As of 2018, there were more than 3 million expatriated Canadians living in Canada, making up nearly one in five Canadians.

They make up a larger percentage of the population than the U.S., the United Kingdom, or France combined.

In 2017, there are more than three million expats in Canada.

While the country’s housing crisis is largely over, there is a sense that things are only getting worse.

Here are five things you need know about Canada’s expatriats.

1.

They are more likely to be unemployed than Canadian-born people, but they’re more likely than Canadians to work.

Canada has the highest unemployment rate among all OECD countries, at 11.7 percent.

The average Canadian- born person works about 6.7 hours per week, while an expat with the same job title works just 2.2 hours.

They’re more dependent on the government for their livelihoods than their Canadian-educated counterparts.

According to Statistics Canada, the average expat earns $30,000 less per year than the average Canadian.

The government provides nearly half of the wages paid to expats, which makes them among the poorest paid workers in the country.

2.

They can afford to live outside Canada.

According, the International Monetary Fund, “Canada is a relatively well-off country for a relatively low-income country.

In 2018, it was estimated that an expatriat earned between $75,000 and $200,000 ($US86,500 to $US116,500), compared to the $75k to $200k ($US83,400 to $115,600) in Canada.”

The United States is the only OECD country where expatriators have to pay tax, but their government supports their financial independence.

According the World Bank, “The average expatriator has the same amount of assets as a Canadian in 2018.”

They also have higher incomes than their native counterparts.

3.

Expats have the highest level of education.

According a report released in 2017, a Canadian expat’s average bachelor’s degree is nearly seven years old, compared to a Canadian who holds a graduate or professional degree.

The United Kingdom is the country with the highest average age for expats.

4.

They have better access to medical care.

Expatriates in Canada have access to health care at a lower rate than the rest of the country, at 17.7 per 1,000 Canadians.

The Canadian Medical Association says expats have a higher chance of receiving a full medical insurance plan, compared with their Canadian counterparts.

5.

Expat families are more financially secure.

According Statistics Canada data, there was an average household wealth of $2,000 in 2018, compared the $2.6 million in Canada in 2016.

According To Canada’s Ministry of Finance, expats can expect to make an average of $10,000 per year in the first 10 years after leaving Canada, compared that of Canadian-sourced workers.

That means that, on average, expat families in Canada can expect an average $2 million income, or $16,000 a year.
