Canadians Interested in Self-Sufficiency

Canadians Interested in Self-Sufficiency

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of Canadians interested in self-sufficiency has risen. 

Dave MacDonald, International Canadian School of Survival owner, says he saw an increase in enrollments after the crisis. People realized how unprepared they were when food and toilet paper was not readily available. The basic survival skills such as land navigation, building fires, food rationing, and firearm training are some of the classes MacDonald teaches to help survivalists be prepared for catastrophes.


One online group, “Preppers & Survivalists of Canada,” has over 6,000 members. Leader of the group Ryan Pearce doesn’t choose to live off the grid but enjoys learning bush craft as a hobby. Some members are moms wanting to know how to refrigerate meat like their grandparents used to do or just preparing food out of gardens.

Co-founder of the website “Survival Realty,” based in the United States, has seen web traffic double since the coronavirus pandemic. More Canadians and Americans are buying remote properties in rural British Columbia and Alberta. Several of the buyers are simply attracted to the simple way of life that survivalism offers.

Some are concerned about the densely populated cities. People are enjoying the freedom to relocate and work remotely. If you want to live in a large country like Canada, contact Canada Immigration Express. Their team of experts will walk you through the visa options best for you and your family.
