Hello guys,

All I can say is WOW alot of positive but more negative posts then positive.

Firstly I would like to say is if anyone is reading these post please ignore all the negative ones as everyone is different you can't " knock it until you try it" as one person might immigrate to Canada and land a decent job or even a dream job but then that bad apple might immigrate to Canada expecting to find a dream job in a matter of months and have no luck.

I'm also gonna be a new immigrate in Canada as me and my wife have both given in our notices and will be moving to Toronto in the next 2 months. I might be a lucky one or I might not be who knows I'm my own person and I will work 10x harder as I did in the Uk then I will be in Canada. They say its all about networking so while I've been planning my move I've been networking with companies on LinkedIn and even attended the Canadalive show to network with a few recruiters which I got positive feedback from but until I sign a contract it means nothing.

Alot of my wifes family works in the IT which is the field I'm in now 1 is CEO at Rogers, another is Acting Manager for Fujitsu and another works in York University etc. Yes they tell me once I land there they will sort me out but until I sign a contract it means "Nothing".

Guys please please please network with as much Canadians as possible before you move I've even emailed companies directly seeking advice not asking for a "Job" You be surprised how much replies you will get as they seem very helpful in helping you out then telling you that they have a job. I even got a positive reply from the LCBO Board and have had constant conversations with the Manager. Guys don't bother applying for jobs if your not already in the country just email the companies and recruiters directly seeking advice use them as your links and networks.

Everyone has a chance to make it even if you want to work for Moxie's email them directly; example "Dear Sir/Madam I will be relocating to Canada from the UK. I have attached my resume to this email. I have read a lot of really good job adverts you have had in the past few months. I would really appreciate any tips or advice which can help with my career move to Toronto" Thats just a example on emailing companies directly.

In my experience doing this I've had 95% replies from major companies even school boards with positive replies, but what I have noticed is that recruiters RARELY reply like 1/10 will reply as they only care about if your already living in the country etc as they get paid by commission and them giving you advice or information does not benefit them so be prepared to be ignored by most of them.

I really do hope I land my dream job my wife is already on the TDSB board for teaching and I will be making this job hunt my fall time thing.

My last bit of advice is you need CHARISMA and I mean like even recruiters like to see people full of energy, keep smiling heads up come across confident direct eye contact and everyone likes a laugh. If your naturally a peoples person you will know what I mean as random people will just approach you without even knowing you because they get that positive aura from you....

But if your that bad apple they will spot that from a mile away, professionals can easily spot that as even the way you stand not alone if your smiling but how you come across is a MUST. If anyone is getting doubts about the above post Don't you are your own person no one makes you as you make yourself. Keep your head up and stay focused I do hope we all make it and find what we dream to have.

And I really dislike it when people state the point "Where immigrants" Know the history in Canada before you move there as every single person living in Canada is a "Immigrant" Not like the UK where as the white British is considered a resident and not a immigrant but a white Canadian is considered a Immigrant.

If you feel that I'm talking rubbish then I do apologize and you can totally ignore my post. But if you feel this has motivated you I'm happy it did as I only see good things about Canada and think everyone has a chance to start a good job if they give it 100%.

If anyone in here gets lucky and has a story to tell please say as I know 1000's of people read these post but never reply like myself until I sadly saw people getting demotivated by the negative posts.

If I land a nice job I will be more then happy to share my experience and if I could help someone who is helping themselves find a job I will be more then happy to as its all about "Networking".
Yea...nice addition, that's just the spirit!

Thumbs up!

My application for MPNP has been moved to COLOMBO from NEW DELHI today (03.03.2014).

What would be the implications/effects of this move?
In how much time would i get the MEDICAL REQUEST & finally visa?
Will the overall processing time increase or decrease?


I humbly request you to please suggest & reply. I highly appreciate your response in advance.

My file details are as follows -

Got my LOA 23.06.2013.
My application was transferred to NEW DELHI on 18.01.2014 (I got an e-mail from them).
My ecas status says APPLICATION RECEIVED on 04.11.2013.


Thanks & Regards,
SIDHU

Hi

I am an m.a. mphil. graduate in English literature, working as a language editor in an epublishing outsourcing company. I am planning to emigrate to Canada. I would like to know how the opportunity for me as a language editor is and what other jobs I can with given my profile. Please give me a guidance on this. Is it really ideal for me with the mentioned profile to first emigrate to Canada with no job in hand and find one later. How much i need to afford a three-member family in places like Toronto.

Job Market is tough in Canada if you are over 55
I have sent out 500 resumes had 10 interviews
and no job offers and this is someone who has
32 Canadian years experience and a Designation. I feel I am in the
same boat as an recent immigrant. Canadian Employers
are in the driver seat now they have a lot of choice
to choose from there are 6 unemployed Canadians for every
job available and this isn't counting all the 250,000 immigrants
plus Temporary workers so I would say its more like 8. One Interview the guy showed me about 20 resumes he was interviewing for and this was a skilled job requiring Canadian experience.Sure there are a ton of jobs if you want to work for minimum wage of $11 dollars. I see so many immigrants working at Fast food for minimum wage and Factory jobs.
And this government of ours says we have a skilled shortage that's BS
we have a shortage of people who will work for nothing and does nothing
to help its unemployed. It's only concern is to keep the labour pool large
and to keep wages down and help employers stay competitive as globalization is preventing large wage gains. Now that's the Progressive government we have now. The Liberals will be in next and they are more for the people, so things should get better. Watch which province you go to the standard of Living in Alberta is much higher than Ontario and they have jobs. Ontario ranks 20th in the world for GDP and Alberta has highest GDP per capital in Canada much higher than Ontario. A friend of mine went to Alberta as he couldn't find work in Ontario that's another skilled worker with 30 years experience gone. I just might be next.

Below is an interesting report about Toronto's standard of Living.

http://www.unitedwaytoronto.com/downloads/whatWeDo/reports/Decade_of_Decline_Final_Report.pdf

Below is GDP per capital by Province
Alberta 80,516
Ontario 49,940

I wish every potential immigrant could read this especially some of the cheerleaders that like to delude potential newcomers.

I moved out of Canada last year and find that there are more opportunities for me in Thailand than there ever was in Canada.

If a decent standard of living is your goal then Canada (with the exception of Alberta... for now) is the wrong place to be.

Hmmmn ...this is what every new immigrant should learn from...well, I have known Alberta to be a very good province as I have a some family and friends there and they are doing pretty good.

It's a oil and gas rich province and this has made available tons of job which increases yearly.

mrbeachman...you've mentioned in many posts that you're happy in thailand, well that's good for you ...but i guess for the most of us, we're trying to find happiness here in canada.

If i don't find happiness here...i might leave canada someday ... but not for a third world country.
