In the '80s there were stories of declining birth rates in Canada, and they were still welcoming new comers with open arms. But not refugees (so much). They do want people able to support themselves.

When Hong Kong's lease expired in what '96?, Canada opened its arms to businessmen who wanted not to take a chance on Communism.

So you are not surprised to encounter some bureauracy in trying to immigrate, but for those with means of support, they will probably accept you. But the more British style of doing things suggests you should not expect a warm welcome. It will take a while to feel at home. It helps if you have relatives there.
