More people decided to become expatriates in Canada last year than ever before, according to new official figures.
Citizen and Immigration Canada released the statistics, showing that the trend for an increased number of people moving to the country year-on-year is continuing.
For seven years this has been the case and 2012 saw an influx of 257,515 take up residence in Canada from other countries all over the world.
An average annual allowance of 250,000 new immigrants since 2006 has led to Canada being among the top nations in terms of the most per capita immigration across the globe.
Expats are being welcomed by the country's government as a way to boost the economy and generate jobs, which it says will be of benefit for the whole of Canada in the long run.
A new immigration system has been put in place in order to help attract highly skilled migrant workers and top talent.
Jason Kenney, citizenship, immigration and multiculturalism minister, said: "The government is continuing to move toward a modern and effective immigration system that attracts the skilled immigrants that Canada’s economy requires.
"This new fast and flexible system will respond more effectively to Canada’s labour market needs, support family reunification, and provide protection to genuine refugees."
