International migration occurs when people cross state boundaries and stay in the host state for some minimum length of time. Migration occurs for many reasons. Many people leave their home countries in order to look for economic opportunities in another country.

Canada has long been one of the most underrated countries in terms of economic growth, cultural richness and natural bounty. The country, however, is lately getting its due. Located in northern America, it shares a land boundary with the USA which is also the longest bi-national land border in the world. There have been a lot of theories that have been put forward to understand where the name Canada came from. It is widely accepted now that the name come from St. Lawrence Iroquoian who used the word ‘kanata’ to direct the explorer Jacques Cartier towards a village named Stadacona.
