Worth immigrating to canada?

Is it worth immigrating to canada? GC seems to be taking too long in US. Anyone here knows someone who immigrated to canada from US? If so how was the experience?

If U R uncertain about job and not working on Thekedari( I mean S/W Consultant aka Gate Hiring guy) then it is not a bad option as a standby.

IF you have regular Job on H1 and get laid off for some reason, it becomes tought to get a New H1 transfer filing within 30 days.

Have lot of know people done that....it is always a better option than going back to India; Unless You have any compulsion to stay in India

Re: Worth immigrating to canada?

I know folks who had H1B and GC was in process. At that time this one year extension at a time to your H1 if GC in process was not there. So they went to Canada. Worked outy of Canada office of the company. Aftere 18 months they got a fresh H1 and came back. Then later theire GC was done. Consult an immigration lawyer for your specific situation before you begin any process.

Over last few years I don't know the job situation in Canada, so consider if there are enough opportunities. From friends who have done the temporary Canada thing, the phrase one used is 'its a good enough holding cell before you get released back in US.'

pl do not decide ur future by reading news items.....
better go directly to Canadian-Indian immigrant discussion forum..as they have many expert to help you for free.
http://www.canadiandesi.com/forum.php

in my opinion...if you really decided to settle in Canada....
the best provinces to migrate are Saskatchewan and Alberta...

Saskatchewan's economy Booming these days.

Hi Man i moved to Calgary Alberta from Dallas a year ago and so for things are good.

I found Calgary is costly compared to Dallas,weather is cold over here, Again you have advantages and disadvantages.

I moved here after finding a job, if you can do the same that will be excellent as jobs are less in canada when compared to US

I know. However, I have canadian PR since almost 3 years ago. You have to move to canada within 3 years in order to maintain canadian PR otherwise they revoke it. This was mostly meant to be a backup incase I lose my job. I need to make a decision in the next 2 months incase I want to maintain the canadian PR. Most probably I will not move as it will be too big of a hassle.

Does anyone here know that once a person with a canadian PR gives it up, it is possible to reapply after some time.

Re: Worth immigrating to canada?

If you are in IT don't go to Canada if you don't have to. There are no IT jobs there and life sucks.
If GC takes long time, so what ? If you have survived here on H1 for 4-5 years you cannot last more ?
I know the lure of GC where you can work any job or your wife can work..... But remeber nothing pays more then IT. So if you have that freedom to do any job in Canada , what job will you do ? $9/ hr ?
What kind of job will your wife do ? Wal-mart ? If you want your wife tyo work here too hten train her in IT and someone will do her H1

Worst case scenario, go back to INdia and come back here.

My 0.02 in american currency not canadian.......


Don't get swayed. Look at your options.

Only loosers who cannot make it US go to Canada. It is afterall a poor man's US anyways.

And Mitchell let's be a winner ........
