Re: Clippy, etc 2006 applicants

We applied in 2006 and moved to Brisbane area in 2007. We came back to Canada in 2010 to be near family while the kids were little. It turns out that was a good decision as we both lost our dads...

Re: University Questions - OZ citizenship but in Canada now

Yes, the job situation will be a factor when the time comes. I imagine we would wait until the mining industry is on the upswing again and is dying for engineers. Until then we are in no rush and...

Thank foe the great information. I hadn’t realized that the HECS loan couldn’t be used for accommodation so that is a surprise. You are correct that student loans in Canada cover both tuition and...

Re: Roll Call...

Hey there everyone! I've been away for ages as well. Once we moved back to Canada in 2010 I gradually stopped visiting as I got busy with work, kids sports and life in general. I've been poking...

Re: University Questions - OZ citizenship but in Canada now

That's a fair question. I'm equally happy in both countries and I'd like to go back someday but don't have a date in mind as of yet. We just relocated across Canada to BC about a year ago and just...

Yes, I am a teacher here in Canada. I didn't teach while in Australia as I had two very small children when we were there. I did have my teaching certificate switched over so I do hold a Queensland...

Re: Engineering Outlook - 2018/2019

Ah, like my husband then. Mining specific jobs are annoying because of the lack of choices on where to live. We have started to wonder if we need to move as he needs to work at a mine. He has family...

Re: Purchase one-way vs return flights

It's worth mentioning that can not show up for the return but you couldn't do the reverse.

If you book a ticket and plan to skip the first flight and only catch the return flight then the airline...

Re: ex husbands permission to move (temp) with child

Re: ex husbands permission to move (temp) with child

I'm pretty sure they would ask for proof anyway. Better to ask delicate questions rather than to allow someone to kidnap a child to another country away from a parent.

Re: Isagenix - helpful or scam?
