Pros and cons of having 2nd Child in canada?

Discussion in 'Settlement Issues' started by canadavisaQs, Nov 10, 2019.

  1. Hello,

    We are in the middle of our work permit application and if everything goes well, we will be in canada on 2 year work permit in 2020. We are planning and 2nd kid and have option to have the kid in canada or back in our home country. We are planning for a PR after work permit.

    I am wondering if there is a list of Pros and cons of having a kid in canada vs our home country?

  2. If the idea is to get your child Canadian citizenship then it's a different discussion but I can highlight one disadvantage.
    Family support : it's always good to have family around with the birth of a new child. Having said that you can still manage without any support as millions of immigrants have.
    If you are new in Canada then the support system (friends) might be non existent which might also add to pressure on you.

    The pro would be obviously paper work which is not required to bring the new child to the country.

  3. Thank you for the reply, the idea is not to get the child canadian citizen only. We are in the middle of moving to canada and eventually will get to citizenship anyways. Incase we aren't able to get PR or citizenship the child can't be living without us so the citizenship doesn't really help.

    As far as family support goes, don't really matter in either country, we are close to only couple of family members back in home country who will be happy to come live with us for few months during final tremester of pregnancy and child birth, also since these family members have US visa and strong ties in home country i do not see them having any problem getting canada visitors visa.

    the paperwork thing is obviously a help.

    Thanks again for replying.
