Re: Canada's vacation politics

Re: Canada's vacation politics

Siouxie, why don't you name the specific kind of franchise jobs you are referring to and the position that pays $75k and requires a degree (in what by the way).

As I wrote, franchise jobs...

Re: Canada's vacation politics

Yeah, I suspected that was what was being referred to johntheScot. In the UK, I am aware that the term Engineer is not as defined as in Canada. In Canada, you cannot (or could not while I was still...

Re: Canada's vacation politics

Franchise jobs generally indicate to me low skill jobs at any level, so I would discount that example as a 'who cares who gets those jobs.' I can see nepotism being able to work in those cases and...

Re: Canada's vacation politics

I'm surprised that the Moderators allow such off topic and childish comments to remain on a thread. I mean, a comment or two maybe but whole pages of them? But I don't own the forum so, what is,...

Huh, I didn't know that christmasoompa, thanks for the info. The only experience I have had with PR was when sponsoring my wife. I thought PR was pretty hard to get otherwise.

I am not Howard or anyone else dbd33. Sorry if that disappoints you. I only returned to Ontario 6 years or so ago. I don't live in Collingwood or Meaford or any other retirement town as you put...

Re: Canada's vacation politics

Hah, loved the pictures BristolUK. Looks to me like there is a serious opportunity for a Canadian landscape architect to make a killing in the UK showing them how to build a level playing field. ...

Re: Canada's vacation politics

Re: Canada's vacation politics

I can't say discrimination doesn't ever exist in Canada BristolUK, of course it does but it is far from a norm and culturally it is totally unacceptable to 99% of Canadians. You only have to look at...

Re: Canada's vacation politics

I understand what you are saying Souixie but I fail to see what it has to do with equal opportunity. If you applied for the same job as I did, I would get the job since I am a Canadian, is that what...

Re: Canada's vacation politics

Well for starters, I am not interested in any comments that refer to the UK. This is not the UK, this is Canada.

Equal opportunity exists for every immigrant who arrives here. What they make out...

Re: Canada's vacation politics

Re: Canada's vacation politics

You're in Canada, not in the UK. What happens in the UK is irrelevant if you live in Canada.

The work culture in Canada is simple. It is up to you to determine how much you will produce and...
