Come to Canada Wizard Attracts More Than Four Million Visits

Ottawa, June 10, 2013 — More than seven thousand people a day, from all around the globe, are using the Come to Canada Wizard to conjure up answers to their immigration questions. The Wizard has now seen more than four million visits since it was launched in August 2011. 

“We want the world’s best and brightest to come to Canada and to help grow our economy,” said Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney. “The Wizard has made it easy for people to assess their personal eligibility to come to Canada and has simplified the first steps of applying, which saves them time and money.”

The Come to Canada Wizard is an interactive, online tool designed to help people determine their eligibility to live, work or study in Canada. Visitors to the Come to Canada Wizard answer a ten-minute questionnaire about their specific circumstances and receive a recommendation as to the best suited federal immigration option. The Wizard also helps visitors through the steps of an application and provides the relevant forms and instructions.

It received a prominent technology award in November 2012 for Excellence in Public Service Delivery.
