10 words that best reflect aspects of Canada.
Why do these words best describe Canada's tourist attractions, to you?
These words best describe Canada’s tourist attractions to me because we are known for our Rocky mountains which tourist come from all over the world to see. We are known for our cowboys, their culture, and the stampede which many tourists come to see because there is (are) no other places in the world who have such things besides Calgary. We are known for our long winters. People from all over the world (come) to see our famous mountains. The world around us is growing because people want to be here to experience what we do everyday. Tourists come to see our long spread mountains. When ever anyone in the North, which is us, pick up a magazine, we see our beautiful back yard. The rocky mountains. Tourist come from all over the world to see what we have to offer and what we hold dear which no other place in the world has. The words in this list represent Canada, Alberta and describe what tourists come here to see.
7/10 pretty good, though you mentioned the mountains over and over, but didn’t really touch on some of our other amazing tourist attractions.

1. What three main things are necessary for skilled workers to become permanent residents?
Three main things that are necessary to become a permanent resident are education, work experience, knowledge of English and/or French.

They are considered a refugee immigrant if they have fled their country because of the situation there, eg. war, violence, genocide etc.
5. If you choose not to use an immigration lawyer, will your application be slower and less important to Immigration Canada?
IT will not necessarily be less important, but it will take a slower process because the CPC has so many applications to go though and cannot rush on anyone of them. Unlike a citizen with a lawyer, the lawyer makes the case processes faster then it would without a lawyer.
6. Do Americans require visas in order to enter Canada as visitors?
No Americans do not need a visa to visit or transit to Canada.
7. If you want to sponsor a family member to come to Canada, what are your responsibilities? (2 marks)
If you are a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada, you can sponsor your spouse, common-law partner, conjugal partner, dependent child (including adopted child) or other eligible relative (such as a parent or grandparent. When someone arrives in Canada as a permanent resident, you must make every reasonable effort to provide for your own essential needs and those of your family.
8. The site says that every year, over 90,000 foreign workers enter Canada to work temporarily in jobs that help Canadian employers address skill shortages, or as live-in caregivers. A work permit is needed for most temporary jobs in Canada, though for some positions and business people it is not necessary. Do you feel that Canada should be encouraging temporary foreign workers? Why or why not? (2 marks)
Yes I do feel that Canada should encourage temporary foreign workers because many other countries do not allow or like people of different nations coming in and taking their jobs, but if all countries let people work were (where) they please, there would be less refuges/poor people in the world, it also benefits us because they do not immigrate here to do nothing, they come to work for us. Therefore, helps us with jobs that are in need of help.
7/10 marks I don’t think you quite understood the last question. Temporary foreign workers do not necessarily want to immigrate here, they just want to work here temporarily.
