Since my parents are vacationing here for a few days, we must talk to them about emigrating from India. They must leave India to pursue a better quality of life.
In order for them to see the benefits of becoming Canadian immigrants, we must discuss the pull factors of Canada. Hopefully, they will decide to emigrate from India, as it would be nice to have our family close by.
We are comfortable in India, however if you think that we could have a better lifestyle then maybe we should think about emigrating from India. The extreme weather is starting to get unbearable.
Exactly, Dad, and a major pull factor of Canada is the environment. The weather in India has become unbearably hot, with the daily high averaging between 32-36. The heat is too extreme to be outside for extended periods of time, and Mom loves to be outdoors. The weather in Vancouver is perfect, not too cold nor too hot. In winter the highs being 8, and summer the highs being 22.
Is Canada prone to natural disaster? I was devastated when my crops died due to drought.
India has the world's worst air pollution, which is why you to have had a life filled with asthma. Canada is ranked in the top ten in the world for clean air, this will cause a great improvement in your asthma. India is prone to droughts, and earthquakes. Droughts can cause starvation, and thirst, and earthquakes can cause destruction. However, Vancouver isn’t prone to any natural disasters besides floods. However, the last major flood that caused destruction was in 1972.
What about the air quality? You know I struggle with asthma in India.
What about the water supply in Canada? Are there water shortages?
Water supply is a huge pull factor of Canada. Canada has 20% of the world's supply of fresh water. Vancouver has clean water, and has very few people without water. Where as India is facing a huge crisis, with over 600 million are facing acute water shortage.
Dengue Fever and Malaria are disease you will no longer have to face.Vancouver doesn’t have high cases if not any cases of disease carried by mosquitoes, unlike India where there are huge outbreaks.
What about diseases?Your mother in law has just gotten over dengue.
Besides the environment being a pull factor, the economic side of Canada is also a pull factor.
In Canada and most MDC’s, there is a higher job availability rate, with higher pay, and better working conditions. They have technology to do work in less hours than we would in India.
What about the pay? Is the pay higher?
Minimum wage in Canada is around $11, more than you would get working in India(minimum wage in India is equivalent to 7 Canadian dollars)
I know that the infrastructure in Canada is amazing. Canada has safe infrastructure and working utilities. For example, building are properly equipped with running water, and electricity.
