Come to Canada Wizard works like magic

Ottawa, August 29, 2012 — One year after Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) launched the Come to Canada Wizard, the popularity of the Web tool continues to rise and is reaching new heights with over 1.6 million visits.

The Come to Canada Wizard helps people determine if they are eligible to live, work or study in Canada. Drawing over 100,000 visitors a month, the tool presents users with a series of questions and, based on their answers, matches them with the federal immigration option that best suits their specific circumstances. It then leads them to a page that breaks down the application steps and provides instructions and forms.

“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. “This is one way that we are creating a more responsive, transparent and efficient immigration system that benefits applicants, immigrants and Canadians alike.”

The clear success of the tool is reflected by the comments CIC has received from users. “This is very interesting and easy to use. A very quick way to find whether you qualify or not,” wrote one user. “An amazing tool, it certainly simplified my options, thanks,” noted another.

CIC is constantly making improvements to its website, from interactive tools for newcomers to enhanced search capabilities. The Department will soon launch an online help centre featuring a data bank of more than 500 answers for users.
