7 billion to
their economy." Reduces rate of

Brain waste is when skilled people immigrates to another country and ends up having to work a minimum wage job,
here is a example India doctor who immigrates to the U.S. but ends up driving a taxi Transportation What type of migration was this? The type of migration depends on the circumstance. If they had willingly emigrated to another country to find better job, that would have been a voluntary move. If they moved to another country because of war, famine, drought, or lack of work, that would have been a forced move. Why did this group decide to migrate? Where did people settle in the United States? For people who migrate to different countries, there is many factors which affect your decision one of which can be transportation. To get to another country, the majority of people would travel by plane. Some people travel in ships, or if they are emigrating from Canada to America, they might use a car or a donkey. Where do people decide to settle in the United States? People who live in rural areas decide to migrate to urban areas, places such as Los Angeles, or San Francisco because there are more job opportunities in urban areas compared to rural areas. For example, in rural areas there might be jobs in farming, but in urban areas there are much more jobs that are available that rural areas don't provide. Rural areas Urban areas
-Farmer -Environmental Engineer -Civil Engineer -Petroleum Engineer
-Teacher -Accountant
-Doctor -Doctor -Veterinarian -Construction Worker The groups decided to migrate for improved career and living conditions . The reasons are usually include two aspects, which come from countries and individuals. In terms of countries the matter would be social environment, as in the home country the problem is lack of opportunities, political instability, economic depression, health risks and etc. On the other hand they might think that the host countries would have rich opportunities, political stability, freedom, developed economy, better living conditions and etc. In terms of individuals reasons there are family influence meaning overseas relatives, and there is personal preference such as preference for exploring, ambition for an improved career and etc. Push and Pull factors Some push factors may be:
-Religious/Political oppression
-Natural disasters
-Job opportunities
- Slavery Brain Drain Some Pull factors may be:
-Religion and Political freedom
-Promise of a better life
-Better medical care
-Better living conditions
-Higher Job wages What impact did the group had on the canadian culture and society? THE END What barriers of migration did they face ? LEGAL BARRIERS: Legal barriers can include laws and regulation between other countries. such as. In Pakistan you can not visit Israel. Between Canada and the US you have to have visa to enter either of the countries ; You can also have refuge status in some cases. PERSONAL BARRIERS: Personal barriers are basically emotional barriers, leaving your home country could be a very difficult task
you are leaving your family and friends behind. Another barrier is that immigrating to another country can also be expensive even if it is a small immigration like Canada and USA.

NATIONAL BARRIERS: National barriers are political and physical obstacles. Political obstacles can be war, rebellion, weak government or safety and many many more. Between Canada and the US visa is a obstacle. Physical barrier example would be how Cuban citizens are not aloud to leave the country,some Cuban even swim to USA to retain refuge status in fear for their life. Between Canada and the US there is not many physical barriers. one possible barrier could be a drive thru bad weather or a terrifying walk to the border if refuge status is the case. The impact of brain drain on the canadian culture and society results in the loss of highly skilled workers in the following fields: medicine, science, research, or computer technology.The U.S has a much bigger population and corporations than that of Canada. Some people say that there is really no problem and that the number of people leaving Canada for jobs elsewhere is being balanced by the number of people coming to Canada but this does not solve the problem. The problem is that the universities in Canada are subsidized (supported) by the government. University tuition fees in Canada are much lower than the fees in the U.S. But if Canadian University graduates leave the country and then the money invested in that education would not benefit Canada. As Canada has his own information and technological resources and those resources need highly educated and gifted thinkers, they do not want their university graduates and gifted thinkers to go work in the U.s. To sum it up you can say that Canada is in loss of their highly educated and young businessmen men.
