Canada is the second-largest country in the world, with a disproportionately small population. To put this into perspective, the USA boasts a population 9 times larger than Canada’s with a smaller landmass than Canada has. Canada’s vast uninhabited landscapes, therefore, leaves plenty of freedom to roam. So what can one do during a Canadian spring?

Although it may seem slightly unconventional, an absolute must during the spring is skiing!  Skiing during this unlikely season is particularly enjoyable in part due to the longer daylight hours that allow for more time to explore the slopes. The overall warmer weather also means you are able to rid yourself of some of the bothersome layers associated with peak season and have more mobility to expand your skill-set. In the spring, the slopes are also significantly quieter making for a pleasant and peaceful experience. These wonderful perks can be enjoyed in most ski resorts all the way into April and even May.

If you know anything about Canada, then you know it is the motherland of ooey-gooey maple syrup and pancakes. So you have not experienced Canada at its truest until you have been exposed to all that maple syrup season brings. There are multiple maple farms scattered across Quebec, Ontario, and New Brunswick. Celebrate maple season by immersing yourself in the festivities that these farms offer with mouth-watering maple-themed breakfasts and more. One unique maple tradition worth encountering is ‘Licherie’ which involves dipping a wooden stick into boiling maple syrup and using a smaller stick to scrape and enjoy the fast-freezing delicacy.

Finally, nothing can top the charming landscapes brought on by a Canadian spring. Take time to embrace the astonishing environmental wonders during this transitional period, where melting snow gives rise to cascading rivers and waterfalls. Spring is also Canada’s cherry blossom season and so marks the perfect time to visit parks and outdoor markets. Bask in the beauty that Canada’s nature has to offer this season.

It is clear that Canada has plenty of exciting opportunities for exploration. If we have piqued your interest, let it be furthered by this country’s welcoming policies. If you are merely interested in a temporary visit, you can procure a Canada visit visa. But if you see yourself as a more permanent fixture in this wonderful country, then it may be time to embark on your journey to Canadian permanent residency. Canada offers extensive PNP and Express Entry programs that offer all kinds of individuals from varied backgrounds the chance for a better life.

What more do you need to convince you to seize this glorious opportunity?

HOF Migration can be your helping hand throughout the process, from eligibility screenings to language training and documentation. So don’t waste a second, and let HOF Migration ‘make it happen’.

South Africa welcomes immigrants who are in a position to make a meaningful contribution to broadening the economic base of South Africa.

Before you can apply for a permanent residency permit, you must first motivate why you should not  be declared a prohibited person or an undesirable person.

You and your spouse qualify for a direct permanent residence permit if you have lived in South Africa on the basis of your work permit for a minimum period of five years. Dependents of South African citizens or permanent residence permit holders can also apply.

Residency on other grounds applies to foreigners who:

  • are in possession of a permanent work offer in South Africa
  • have exceptional skills and qualifications
  • intend to establish a business in South Africa
  • qualify as refugees in terms of Section 27(c) of the Refugees Act
  • qualify as retired persons
  • are financially independent or
  • are relatives (biologically or judicially adopted) of a South African citizen or permanent residence permit holder.

As of 2018/2019, there were approximately 485,645 international students studying in the United Kingdom, making it the second most popular study destination in the world. This whopping statistic calls into question what exactly the UK seems to offer their prospective students.


  • Multicultural Environment

The UK is well known for its multicultural society, where all ethnic backgrounds and religious beliefs are represented. This welcoming and tolerant culture means that international students are able to seamlessly integrate into their new environment.


  • Worldwide Recognition

For centuries, the UK has maintained a reputation of excellence within the field of learning and academia. This means that degrees obtained from UK institutions are recognised globally as those of a high standard. This is supported by UK institutions holding a significant number of places within official university league tables.


The high standard of education offered in the UK means that students will be adequately prepared to contribute to an international workforce.


  • Lower Education Costs

Most undergraduate degree programs in the UK take three years to complete, as opposed to the more common 4 years in the US. This ultimately works to reduce the overall cost of education within the UK.


  • Travel Connections

The UK’s proximity to a number of countries within Europe means that students will have an unparalleled opportunity for quick and low-cost travel during their holiday periods. Whether you are studying in Leeds or London, after procuring a visa, trips to Italy are just a few clicks away with direct flights taking a mere two hours.


  • Cultural Attractions

The UK actually offers a number of cultural attractions that students can cover before making any European travel plans. From Stonehenge, which is a prehistoric monument that has attracted tourists since its conception to the Edinburgh Castle, there are plenty of historic wonders to explore as a student in the UK.


The perks of studying in the UK are abundant, so take this opportunity and allow HOF to make it happen for you!
