Interested in Immigrating to Canada from Kuwait?

As of 2011, about 2,240 Canadians claimed Kuwaiti ancestry, the majority speaking Arabic, English, and French. Formal diplomatic relations between Canada and Kuwait date back to 1965, and the two countries share a common interest in peace and security, humanitarian affairs, as well as trade and investment. Each of these factors plays a role in the strong foundation of their bilateral relationship. Many Kuwaitis in Canada are students who have chosen to study in Canada in pursuit of higher education, while others have immigrated for employment opportunities or to join family members.
