    I am a recent immigrant to Canada and I also felt like this initially. It took a while for me to understand the property market here, it is not too bad once you figure it out. I bought a 3 bed 2 bath townhouse in Scarborough for a little less than 600k. What I realized is people slowly climb...

    Any problem in applying citizenship for 1 family member online and remaining 2 family members on paper?

    Hi All, I am in a situation where it is preferable for me to have my Citizenship application processed as soon as possible. However, for my spouse and kid, it is okay if it takes a little while longer. Hence I thought of applying for myself online separately, to ensure the fastest processing...

    I lived in the US on a h1b and then moved to Canada. Personally life in Canada on a PR thumps life in US on a h1b anyday.
