Re: Express Entry Spousal Checklist & Medical/Police Certificates

Can anyone tell me if the spousal language test is scored in the same way as the principal applicant's, or if they afford it lower value?

Re: Help I hate it here!!!

Sounds to me like you're putting a lot of pressure on yourself to find your Canadian "UK equivalent", as soon as possible. And it also sounds like a bigass bout of cultureshock!

Re: No tip with a tip

Yeah, it's not the same without rounds being bought. Maybe tipping and service are the reason why you don't get that "pub feel" here...

Re: No tip with a tip

I agree, on the whole, the service here is good, it was something I noticed when I first arrived. I suppose what some people have a problem with is not being given the choice of whether they want to...

Re: No tip with a tip

Maybe you all just tip because you're scared - From what you've told me, it sounds like bribery/blackmail.

Re: No tip with a tip

So do we tip to supplement poor wages? It seems unfair that factory workers and refuse collectors don't get this perk. Aren't fair wages a human right we try to protect (hence the legislated minimum...
