The Quality of Canadian Life

Many people were excited about Lutke’s opinion. Canada has had a consistent high-immigration rate since 1988. According to Census 2016, Canadians born outside the country hit 21.9 %. Meanwhile, America only had a foreign population of 13.4%.

To add the cherry on top, Canada has been voted the # 1 Country for its quality of life and # 2 in overall ratings. No wonder Lutke shared his opinion because Canada is awesome and the numbers prove it.

Lutke’s tweet promoting relocation to Canada surfaces after President Donald Trump made the decision to temporarily suspend employment-based visas. The order is said to last until the end of this year and big tech companies are not happy about it.

About Shopify

Shopify is a Canadian e-commerce company from Ottawa. It often relocates its employees and has “lots of experience” doing it, so it’s not an alien subject to touch upon.

Last year, over 1 billion people made their online purchases via Shopify stores. On top of that, merchants sold $14 billion worth of products in 2018.
