And you are borderline illiterate.

I really wonder what it is you are trying to achieve here. I ask again. Do you really want to move to a country that is giving so so many reasons to complain before you've even moved here?

Maybe Canada isn't for you

Have you thought of moving to Ireland? I hear they're all moving to Canada so opportunities might be bountiful!

Ah but Zoe does have a point though... If you are going to insult someone (Riv) at least make sure you spell it correctly and throw some punctuation in for good measure.

Anyhow see ya

Well you see my dear. Unlike you, I can back my premise up with several examples:

I'm married to the guy plonker !!!
Read my original message dur
Your the one stating that I'm racist ?
Please leave this thread your annoying


Whereas you have the sum total of your own experience , which as many have pointed out has very little to do with race and more to do with immigration status and the say so of one (possibly mythical) Government employee, whom I'm betting would not go on public record to say what you have claimed.

Default Re: Racist Employers

OP you titled the thread racist employers based on someone at an Alberta employment office saying that employers are racist when choosing employers.
Does racism exist in Canada yes it does much like it occurs in many other countries and against all races including white people.
Far too often in my job the race card is played and people use it as a weapon where in a lot of cases racism isn't being displayed.
Do some people get screened out of jobs because of their name or ethnic background then yes it will happen but proving it Is another matter. Yes there have been cases when the same person used a different name and got interviews/jobs but those cases are few.
What has been pointed out that at the moment until your OH gets accepted under the EE stream and is issued with documents for PR and will then legally be entitled to work in Canada then its highly unlikely he will be offered a job.
Since CIC cracked down on temporary foreign workers being allowed to work in Canada the vast majority of employers wont hire anyone who is not legally entitled to work in Canada and has the necessary documentation to do so.
That is not racism.

whoa, wait a minute...

Yes some jabs at you, some really good comments & suggestions, as well as advice from folks that have travelled the road you're on.

Please stick around & keep us abreast of how your OH is making out with his application as well as the job search.

Has he considered making an application for assessment leading to taking the 'Red Seal' challenge exam to get trade certified in the province that you are considering making home?

I think it's as naive to say that there is no racism in Canada as it is to think that racism is prevalent.

Undoubtedly there will be some who won't interview based on names, ethnic origin etc and perhaps the OPs experience is affecting her outlook and her response to the replies on here. There is definitely an increase in fear of and dislike of Muslims, we've seen it on these boards. In my opinion it was a reasonable question to ask after what she has been told by the person in Alberta

I think those of you who commented on the OP's interacy should think again. There are many intelligent capable people who can't spell well.

To the OP, simmer down, there are good people on here who can and will help with good advice.

Let's all play nicely.
