Interested in Immigrating to Canada from Ghana?

Canadian Citizens of Ghana descent, first-generation Ghana immigrants, or descendants of Ghana who immigrated to Canada are called Ghanaian Canadians. 

The unofficial number of Bangladeshi Canadians living in Canada is around 35,000 people. Ghanaian people first immigrated to Canada in the 1960s. It has been said that Ghanaians have had an easier transition into the Canadian community because in Ghana, English is also a main language.
