5 Mexican Associations in Canada

According to the 2016 Census, there are over 7,000 Mexicans living in the city of Toronto, and these figures have only increased in the years since then. Mainly and more recently, this has been due to the strict migration policies that the American president Donald Trump has established. But also it is because a large number of Mexicans are looking for a quality of life and job opportunities that unfortunately they haven’t been able to find in their home country.

Living in a foreign country as a Mexican is not at all as easy as people tend to think. You need to build your networking, approach Mexican associations or organizations that can support you by offering workshops to improve your career or find a job. EverythingisPRsonal brings you five Mexican Associations established in Canada.
