Pankaj Sharma, 50, moved to Canada in 2019. He followed his wife, Pooja Tandon, an IT professional who was first offered a role there. In 2022, the family applied for permanent residency that will make them eligible for Canadian citizenship after five years, on fulfilling certain conditions.
“The primary reason to move here was professional, but after coming here we realised that our daughter was at a stage in her life that we could not change her education system too often, so we applied for permanent residency and got it,” Mr. Sharma said. He added that his daughter, who often fell sick in Delhi due to air pollution, has not complained of chest infection even once since they moved to Canada.
