hmm.... what about after landing (Hopefully)? Would they then also consider us as suspicious people because we are from Pak?
Strange question but we should have answer to it specially from Pakistanis already moved to Canada in recent times.
Anyways, thanks for sharing this.
All those who landed say one thing: there is no discrimination in Canada and probably this is the best country one should immigrate to, in terms of non-discrimination. Exceptions are everywhere, but according to them, Pakistan has a much worse society, comparatively, if you consider discrimination. I apologize if i am offending someone, this is just about a few opinions from my circle of friends.
There is one bad opinion, it is really tough to find job there. The market is very competitive and employers does not consider international experience. There is rush on jobs and one has to struggle really hard to get into their market, if successful, the immigrant enjoys life , if fails, he regrets why he left a good job back at Pakistan.
One more thing, one of our forum member got PPR and attended a seminar, to prepare for canada arranged by iom. After the seminar, majority of Pakistanis were abusing Pakistan to be such a low country. He tried to explain them that yes there is a difference in both countries but every place has its own charms and the Canada is not a heaven. They started fighting with him and he got silent but when he came back he said, now i really want all of them to goto canada.. believe he was in touch with a few after immigration and majority of them were so dishearted in Canada that they regreted why they resigned their jobs in Pakistan.
To make it short, Canada is a good country, a developed country with oppurtunities, and a gateway to north american job market. If a person keeps a clear goal and faces the odds with bravity, chances are there he would definitely succeed. Good universities (Atleast highly recognized and well respected if compared to our country) and a country where you can learn English and French, the two official languages of UN and major Multinational companies. You make a real difference in your profile and it is easy for a person to click in the international market then.
Off from the forum now, I would be back in a few days...
Pray we succeed here in immigration and we succeed to make the world a more better place. effort is needed no matter what goal you want to achieve in any part of the world
