    Welcome to Ontario: You're a racist white supremacist if you don't vote liberal. Which is good, come join the gang brother. I should probably stop making such convoluted jokes.

    Do you think there's any chance that Canada might restrict the volume of immigration into the country by the end of this decade? more info given below

    No, but compsci/software is an in-demand field so if there are things like NOC-based draws in the future, you may be on the better side of it. You're too hung up on "government imposing restrictions". You need to face realities and plan accordingly. Despite the liberal party's increased...

    Nobody can know. 5 years is a long time. Regardless, as someone in compsci/software with a good master's degree from the UK, you're among the last to worry about it. You already have a good amount of work experience, I doubt you need to wait 5 years to apply. In fact, if you happen to stay in...

    Experience in Canada beats experience in the UK (in Canadian employers' foolish opinion). Your experience in the UK will surely give you a good start but moving to Canada sooner and starting to work in Canada sooner would be the better plan in my opinion. How many years of work experience do...

    First you'll need to select a primary NOC, in which you'll need to have one full year of work experience (1560 hours). Then all of your other eligible NOCs (0, A or B) will count towards the 3 years you'll need for max work experience points. You won't have to put another year into the latter...

    Yeah public transit in Van was really good actually, quite the same as European services I can say. You wouldn't need a car at all. You whole landing experience in Canada doesn't count mate. You got a proper job before landing which is not the case for majority of new immigrants. Your home...

    Definitely, as they already have. I suggest you open up an Excel sheet, plot the cutoffs and you'll see. But I believe 481 will hold as not many people will care to learn French and/or get a Canadian master's. Nobody can tell you but 460+ is quite risky already and hoping that it gets less...

    That's more Burnaby than Vancouver mate (Burnaby is essentially China btw). I'm seeing they average about 1500 USD ~2000 CAD, and as far as I can see they're mostly basement rooms. For a short period (1-2 weeks) till I move into a permanent place, I wouldn't mind getting that kind of Airbnb but...

    If you can afford an Airbnb for 4 months, sure, go for it. I've found that good Airbnbs are like x2 the normal rent, and the normal rent only gets you a basement or a shared house. I'm done with shared houses so I said nope.

    Highly doubt it. Pre-pandemic levels (2019) were 465-470. You can verify on IRCC's website. Take a look at the unofficial CRS cap for outland applicants: - Single - Younger than 30 - Has a master's degree - Topped IELTS - 3 years of work experience and you get 481. This isn't very difficult...

    Depends what your bank looks like. If you have like $100k in your bank then it might be different. But my experience shows that they don't trust the cash you have in your bank too much, what they wanna see first is good salary + good credit score. I got lucky and barely made it.
