Canadian immigrants are comparatively more skilled than US immigrants. Do you know why? The government of Canada makes several attempts in finding skilled migrants. A comparison was made between the immigrants in Canada and the US, and it was found that the people migrated to Canada are better educated and earning high salaries than those who moved to the US. The entire credit can be given to Canada's points based immigration process in selecting talented individuals to work in Canada.
