дорогие формучане, вот заметила, что многие говорят, что из Канады легко перебраться в США (я так понимаю имея гражданство Канады). это имеется в виду рабочая виза в США или что то другое? мы в который раз не выиграли в лотерею и понимаем, что надеяться на лотерею уже нет времени. так вот, если ли смысл иммигрировать в Канаду, получить там гражданство и потом перебираться в США? хочется жить именно в США, а Канаду рассматриваем как промежуточную базу. просветите плз..
Для граждан Канады и Мексики существует специальная процедура получения права на работу в США - статус TN.
1. They do not need your professional skills; just your muscle and tax paying abilities. Generally there are enough qualified Canadians for just about any profession. There are also jobs nobody wants to do. By bringing 300,000 people a year from overseas, the governmnet makes sure that even the most unappealing job is covered and there is more than 1 person willing to do it. This also helps tremendously in keeping wages low even when inflation rates are high. The department of CIC does not care if they will have to bring 300,000 or 800,000 people a year to please the industry; they do not care how long these people stay in Canada. The important thing is to get the job done today, and then change the "whores in the brothel" tomorrow. The occupation factor is nothing more than a tool CIC came up with in an attempt to deceive potential immigrants.
2. Inadequate accommodation – Real estate prices reflect one of the greatest scams in Canada. Some of the oldest and most dilapidated houses cost over $150,000 here. The "houses" are in fact "sheds" by European standards as they are made exclusively out of wood and cannot be considered lasting establishments. By the time a 40 year mortgage is paid off, the real value of a house will be equal that of the land it is built on, less the cost to clean the place. With the small survival jobs left on the market, even the small shed is unaffordable.. All your hard earned money will be spent on rent and food.
3. High cost of living; Expect annual rent increases even in years of deflation; Car insurance premiums are a rip off (a driver with no Canadian driving experience may expect to pay over $250/month). Food prices are soaring and quality of much of the food is low. Medical and dental costs are impossible even if you are insured and have extended health coverage (more on this under medical). Child care costs are a killer - with two kids, one of the incomes in the family is wiped out completely. Car maintenance costs are astronomical and auto parts generally cost 3-5 times more than in the US even when the Canadian dollar is stronger than the US dollar.
4. High taxes; even if you are in a low income tax bracket and collect all your income taxes back, you are still paying GST/PST and prices inflated by monopolistic organizations.
You may be eligible for GST credits from the governmnet but this will still not offset the whole amount of GST tax paid during the year.
5. Inadequate health care. Not enough doctors, long wait times, overpriced medication – one out of 5 Canadians does not have a family doctor. Prescription drugs, doctor visits and dental services are so costly that without any extended health coverage you will be asked for thousands of dollars – money you are not likely to have. Recently extended health coverage premiums have also been on the rise and the list of eligible prescription drugs does not cover many regularly prescribed items. Go figure! For anything which is considered non-life threatening, you can expect to wait for ages to get to see a specialist. Often specialists do not help.
6. Culture. Since it is a capitalist system where the only incentive for any action is money; culture in North America suffers a lot as a result. The situation is further agravated by the devaluation of labor (too many people, too few jobs). Mr Harper recently cut off funding for arts saying that "the average Canadian does not care about art." He is, in fact right. The average Canadian is now only concerned with payments for food, gas and bills while desperately clinging to his/her job. Human ethics are also quite different; interpersonal relations have more or less all become business relations.
7. Weather. Long winters, strong winds, humidity in some provinces, heat and drought in the short summer. There are hardly any really good days but there is one good thing. In the stress the immigrants are in, they rarely notice what the weather is.
8. Environment. The Canadian politicians, managed like puppets by the big business, do not care about the environment and the sources of polution. Although there are regulating authorities, they have no say when the big decisions are made. For example the Ministry of Environment may be enforcing the fishing regulations on a particular lake, but they do not do anything when the next mining project wipes out this same lake from the map.
Generally the media prefers not to cover environmental problems, not to upset the general public. When they do write about a particular problem still nothing is being done.
