Default Migration experience

Are there any websites to get more information about experiences of landed immigrants in Canada.

Visiting this site, I often read negative feedback about the job markets in Canada, but it seems Canadian government keeps receiving immigrants... It's hard to explain, isn't it?

Thanks,
Anton.

Permanent immigration is not about better jobs, better pay or about job at
all. It is all about better place to live and enjoy life.

Work permits and temporary migration is for those who look for better job or
better pay.

And what can be better and enjoyable in a cold place with no jobs ?
Isn't it time to admit that Canada counts on immigrant' application
fees and settlement funds to keep her going, oh - I meant limping..

And more freedom! I don't know how work permits work in Canada, but in the
US, you're hooked up to one company with H1B visa, which means that if you
want to change job, you need to get another H1B which is a big pain, even
though it is doable...

Permanent Visa or Green Card, gives you real freedom... at a minimum, it
gives you the freedom of staying legally in the country without a job...
which is the biggest change in my life... not that I want to be supported by
social services and not work or anything of this nature, but sometimes life
requires that you quit your job, change it, or simply postpone your plans
due to family or other very valid reasons...

Soon, we'll enjoy real freedom once again! And it will be a great day ...
;-)

Vive le Quebec libre! (Just kidding! ;-)

So what? I'm ready to pay the fees I paid for my permanent visa, and will
bring all my funds in this country... I'm ready to let this go because I
will get so much in return...

IMO, Canada is the best open society we have in the world to date...
Immigration selection is fair and clearly stipulated, the processing time is
ok (compare to the US), the fees are low (compare to the US), and people in
Canada are beautiful, they have this magical touch clearly pictured by the
word "Mosaic" (in oposition with the American "Melting Pot" which simply
does not work)... The political stands of Canada is very acceptable on all
fronts, the economic is dynamic, the social benefits almost reach the ones
from France (which is very good), education is free, or at least affordable,
and you guys have 1 week more vacation than in the US... ;-)

Last but not least, I'm proud to say that I will bring a lot of money to
Canada in the next few years, as I will be conducting a consulting business
with an Amercian company from Montreal... so bottom line, I'm trained
without Canada paying one dime for it, I'm going to pay a lot of taxes, but
it's completely, fully OK! Take my money, a lot more people need it more
than I need it...

Later,
J!

You have no idea what you are taking about.
How can application fees from immigrants keep such a large country going?
It must be a miniscule percentage of the Govt's annual budget outlay.
I am sure it barely manages to fund the immigration departments and
programs.

Take a look at CIC's website and see the kind of programs they run for new
immigrants.
The application fees barely covers all that.

As for settlement funds - they are for the applicant to use.
The govt. doesn't get any of that.

Since you seem to think that Canada is a "cold place with no jobs", I wonder
what you are doing on this group anyway.
Why don't you tell us what is your idea of a "warm place with lots of
jobs"....

Law doesn't allow CIC to make any "profit" from their operations. More - all
fees collected by CIC don't even come close to cover the real cost of
processing.

new anton,
That is the hard reality.
When you say no jobs or negative feedback about job markets, remember its
always realative to something.... Canada being part of tha G7 leauge offers
great unemloyment rate (very low), but what you see in day to day life is
true as Canada(like every other country) has unique needs in its labor
market, so its take s little time for PRs to get jobs in professional
fields, as some need to brush up or acquire canadian labor market skills.
The most common is issue is Canada's socio-economic comparation to the US
beacause of its close proximity, and when you do that there is not much to
compare and canada is wayyy behind pretty much across the board, The US
economy even at its worst output recession years is unmatched in all
economic indicators, otherwise Canada is a great place,,,you will like it
and get the job you want,,just work hard.

Good Luck

Well here is some positive to go with all the negative you read.

My life is 100% better than had I remained in the U.K.

A few hiccup's but nothing more.

Lots of people stop posting after getting here so maybe that's why you don't
read as many good stories as you do bad. There are still people in here
though who had a POSITIVE experience with the whole thing.

For many of us it was worth the effort.
