New members of the Canada forum, introduce yourselves here - 2018

Hi all,

Newbie on the Canada forum? Don’t know how to start?

This thread is for you ;)

We invite you to introduce yourself on this topic, to share with us your expat story if you are already living in the country, or to tell us more on your expat projects in Canada if you are planning to move there.

It will enable us to help you better but above all to wish you a warm welcome.

Welcome on board!

Hello ,
I’m also new here, My name is Dana i live in Kuwait right now i am planning to move to Canada to build my life there

Hello Danaebrava,
Welcome do :-)
Between Kuwait and Canada, there are so many differencies...have you ever come to the country?

No i havent been in the country

The best thing would be a prospecting trip, so that you get to know much better this country which could help you get the pros and cons of moving to Canada.
Moving abroad is such a critical decision, with so many impacts and recurring administrative hassles...

Hello everyone,

I’ve just moved to Toronto as a permanent resident after some time in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

I’ve been here 3 times before so had no hesitation once I got my PR, and I’ve also studied in the USA before.

Before Dubai I spent some time doing my MBA in Madrid, Spain.

I look forward to getting fully settled in here. Initial impressions are very good.

Am also open to meeting with fellow expats/Canadians for a drink or two, or a meal even.

Hello Mariia,
Welcome to the forum. As you said, Canada is a dream for millions of people. Some of them will enjoy their expat experience, some other won't. We usually strongly advise our members to visit their future city of residence once in the Winter and once in the Summer to be sure about their expat project.

Hi all!

My name is Shafag. I'm from Azerbaijan and I'm planning immigration to Canada, Ontario. I'm 25 , I have Bachelor in Oil and Gas field, Masters in Business Management and 4 years of experience in Oil and Gas industry. Also, I'm planning to take second Master in Canada. Moving to Canada will be a whole new experience for me, especially as I will start everything from the scratch.
Any advise, information is highly appreciated.

Hello. My name is Lissy, I currently live in the East Anglia region of the UK. I am aiming to move to Montreal, Canada once I finish my studies, in 2022, providing I can find a job out there!

I have done a fair amount of research into this venture, and it is so exciting! I also have a daughter, currently 6 years old.

This has been a lifelong ambition of mine, and after battling some difficult circumstances, I can now say I am well on my way to making it a reality.

I hope to find lots of information and tips on how to make the transition easier. My daughter and I have a visit planned for 2019.

Look forward to chatting with you all!

Hi, I am a 60 years old software engineer from England, apparently too old to move to Canada to work. Who knew such a supposedly progressive country would indulge in age discrimination? Other than that, when I visited Canada a few years ago I loved it and would have liked to have found a job there. Nice place. Apart from the age discrimination. Oh well, there is always Scotland for those of us who like snow and trees.
Have a nice day,

Hello im Rayhanna froma Cape Town,South Africa. Pllaanning To immigrate to Canada but not where to start. Any ideas will help .Thank you

Hi my name is Gary. I'm from the Caribbean region. I'm a security professional looking for new prospects. Planning to start by exploring what's available in Canada.

I've done some research and like what I've seen and read thus far about life in Canada.

I am Ken and originally from Montreal. I live in Ottawa. My wife is Indonesian. Well, not really, but I wanted to see how that looks to say. I will be meeting my wife to be for the first time this summer. We are worlds apart in many ways except love, which conquers all. I want her to know Canada is alive and accepting of her culture.

I am 60 so I know what Ficelles is saying about age discrimination. I do not experience it as immigration policy, and not really first hand and it is not easy to tell unless you have your hands on the covert emails and overhear the comments. Our young government seems to be trying to reach out to millennials, then visible minorities then women, and ps with ds or persons with disabilities, so us old guys can get really shafted.   Funny though, 60 is not old anymore, it is the new middle aged. Think about the medical breakthroughs that will assure we live as long as  possible, how can we contribute if the economy is bent to bursting in favour of the 1% who took it all away by profiting from communal resources. I expect more respect.

I suspect Canada is not unique in this respect, but it is my country and I do not like discrimination.  I will not put up with it.

Hello everyone! New here. Will be moving to Saskatchewan. And no date yet.

Hi All,

My name is Kris, I have been living here in Vancouver for more than 2 years.
Its a lovely place to live.

I work as  Business Development Manager, in a Nutraceutical Company

Basically  people are very good over here, they do not interfere in others lives, every one try to mind their own business

Hello everyone,

Welcome to the forum. Hope you will all succeed in your project, in Ontario, Quebec or Saskatchewan.

I really enjoyed reading you. So many different profiles, from so many regions in the world...

Ficelle, the age is one of the multiple criteria used to determine a score. You may indeed get 0 point on this criteria but you may finally get enough points to ask for a PR.

Should you want to settle in Canada, do not forget that you have three different ways:
- Ask for a PR
- Find a job and get a temporary work permit
- Go to university, which eases the way to get a permit / ask for a PR.

Hi All,

Newbie here from Philippines. I really can't imagine now how much I'd love to live in Canada and settle there with my wife and kids. Unfortunately, we never had any out of the country experience yet, so it will all be a little difficult though. I wish to get a job in Canada at least me for now.

My work experiences are mostly customer/technical representatives over the phone/chat until now. I can say though that I have a little skill with computers. We assist customer worldwide but mostly are North Americas. I hope someone can help me find the door of opportunities. Thank you.

Past 45 years old,  you get 0 point, how do you call that if not pure discrimination.

Canada wants young people only but they won't tell you straight,  of course.

You should read the requirements first.
