The most common and popular reason for Indian nationals to migrate to Canada is actually to secure a job, make a better living and settle in that country itself. While most aspirants migrate right after graduation to pursue a postgraduate degree abroad which makes them more suitable candidates for the process of recruitment in the eyes if the job providers in the foreign land. The reason for this migration to new places and foreign lands by the Indian nationals, in particular, is that the state of the economy in India is not as good as one would like it to be.
Above that, there is a huge population explosion that has taken place which has increased the competition not just for the admission process to various courses in India but subsequently in the job application process also. All these reasons have contributed to the emergence of the growing trend of the migration of Indian nationals to Canada. But now situations are changing for the worse. The economic slowdown and recession are not just prevalent in India but it has become a global phenomenon which is being dealt with by the countries by taking stringent measures.
The measures are strict and unfavourable for foreign nationals. To tackle the problem of recession the countries are planning to reserve more jobs for their own citizens and capping the number of jobs that can be offered by the firms to foreign nationals. This comes as a major problem for those Indian citizens who had for long thought of migrating abroad to settle and have a permanent residency in a new country.

After a PGDM, you can take managerial jobs in Canada.
