South African’s are considering their future more seriously than ever before. Red lights and warning signs are a part of everyday life they say. In just 23 years South Africa has suffered more than 500 000 murders – more than in some war torn countries. It is common knowledge that one in three South African women will be affected by a violent attack in her life time and violent crimes against children and babies are increasing too.
South African’s are craving a peaceful life; an accepting and diverse society in which to raise their children at top schools which are the norm and not the exception. They want to ensure their and their children’s future by making sure they have access to every conceivable opportunity while living a free and safe country.
It is then no surprise that migration lawyers and consultants have reported as much as a 350% increase in migration enquiries shortly after the latest South African cabinet re-shuffle debacle.
Canada offers the life that South Africans are dreaming about and if you obtain a Canadian Federal Skilled Work Visa, this life is within your reach.
