When you think of coming from your home country to a new country there are few things that you need to understand.Especially when you come to Canada there are 6 things you should understand before thinking of landing here-
1.There is no help at home–
unlike your home country(as am from India ,I will particularly talk about what happens there!), there will be no servant,maid,driver,cook or someone to look after your kid.Unless and until you are extremely rich there is no one here who has help like these on a regular basis.Cleaners take almost 40$ for an hour here!So,start preparing yourself to work without any help if you plan to shift:D
2.No one really cares who you were back home!-
Okay so there are fee courses that are considered as regulatory courses ,like Pharmacy,Teaching job,Trainers,Doctors ..so people of such professions needs to prepare for exam and get a license for this country.Some professions especially IT are of great scope here,but you need to be a hard working person to achieve something here! There might be phases where you will have to start with a different line of career ,or start from scratch but at the end it’s all worth! You can explore options to study some diploma courses or get a certification in your field to add on to your resume for a good job here.
3.Prepare for your IELTS exam –
If you are migrating from a non native English speaking country,be serious about studying for this exam.People lose on to their total score for the application,if they don’t get the desired band.As am a trainer for the I will be writing blogs for strategies and tips to clear IELTS.
4.Start exploring schools
if coming with a kid- your kid has had a different kind of education as compared to Canadian education,so start exploring options for your kid around your area or stay at a place where there are good schools.
5. Work Experience–
At least 3 years of work experience is crucial for your application to gain points.There is a code specific for every field or career,so you should be clear which job code suits your job description appropriately.
6.Maintain your account-
there is a specific amount that is required to be maintained when applying for immigration here,either single or as a couple or family of 3-4,there is a minimum amount that needs to be maintained in your account,this is for your benefit as sometimes people will not get a job that they want or if they’ll get it ,that might be of a basic wage/hour.So they’ll need their money in the account to survive in a new country till the time they get a job.
I will be creating a series from the detailed stages of applying for immigration to different aspects of living in a new country.
