    this is true right now. Will become like Brampton and Missi going ahead considering most new desi immigrants who care about affordability and value are moving that side.

    honestly, no one gave me or the missus any BS about Canadian experience here in Toronto. Living Downtown is more expensive compared to the burbs, but we make enough to afford it pretty easily (remember, no need to buy a car when living and working DT; rent one when you need it), and save a good...

    US and Aus mainly Indians. Government is trying to get immigrants to move to smaller cities. The problem is there is no way to keep them there. You can move wherever you want to after entering the country. In which country?

    Digital Marketing Job Market

    I meant invest time and energy in an employee who ain't from Canada. All the very best. There'll be many who'll tell ya this ain't possible and that ain't happening, including me, but I'd say try. Just because I don't know someone who hasn't done it doesn't mean that it ain't possible.

    In India, it is possible that numbers are being 'hidden'. But, it's more a case of a poor reporting structure. I can tell you though that it won't be far behind Russia in the future.

    Unpaid Time off + Covid19 salary cut

    your salary does not matter. Paystubs always help in the sense that it's additional proof on top of the work ex letter.

    true. As for H1B, that's a bit of an effed up topic to discuss, eh? Spoke to someone the other day on a TN. His feedback was that the major downside is most jobs are at will (zero notice on both sides). Salary is higher, lesser traffic compared to the GTA (Nashville, TN).

    if your line of work is in the list of NAFTA occupations. Honestly, I don't see the downside to living in Canada though. Just lower wages compared to our neighbour and really cold weather. Am I saying I won't move to the US once I am a citizen? I am not. But, Canada is decent too.

    easy to say. Most of these people he is referring to are from my home country of India. If you knew a few of em, you'd know why they do it. Long explanation short: This is better than the other life choices they have on offer.

    About 50% of EE is Indians. So, 1 in 2. Not very surprising. The govt. started it for us really :)

    easiest is to get a colleague from your company (the one you worked for) to sign an affidavit. A lawyer can draft it for you.

    COPR and coronavirus

    nope you don't unless of course you are there above a certain number of hours or want to step out. I transited through LHR in 2019 as a COPR without a transit visa. The duration of my stopover was 4 hours and 45 minutes.

    I spoke to Trudeau. Said he will personally stand at Pearson and make sure people aren't allowed to enter!! :p Like many have said, be patient. Don't trust anyone, including so-called champions on this forum. IRCC knows what they are doing. The system may not be perfect, but it works!

    but the point is to move here naa, baba? Soft landing, hard landing, no landing are just ways to keep PR status active. The whole point is to move here. Am not against any of the points being made. I am just against the discouragement. That's it.
