What are the job prospects for an immigrant training in environmental management in Canada?

Study and graduate and you will be fine.

The best jobs are in these areas.

I make.

I'm sorry I chose Canada.

I was foolish to make a call based on what people and acquaintances said. After graduating, I was working in a multinational making more per month (in INR), which is pretty decent for a middle class person like me, who is also right after graduating as Mechanics graduates are struggling to get jobs in India, and very few outgrow it. 50k / month (in INR) initially, as the rest work at 10k-15k / month (in INR). As I had plans to do an MBA, my father's friend recommended that I go to Canada, as the opportunities there are excellent.

As I had plans to do an MBA, my father's friend recommended that I go to Canada, as the opportunities there are excellent.

2018 - November

I made a call to pursue my masters from Canada and went to some consultants to get detailed information.

Remember, this is a crucial part of the journey. Consultants will drag you into their words just by focusing on money and residency by showing a few numbers, and I was dumb enough to fall for these money-making consultants. He recommended some institutions to which I began to actively apply and received offers from 3 to 4 institutions. The first one I got was from college, where I reluctantly applied just in case things didn't work out for me regarding my priority colleges. I ignored the offer from that institution initially expecting one of my prioritized, but my consultant forced me with some pathetic lines and I, being a fool, paid the large amount.

Friends in Canada

I consulted some of my former acquaintances classmates who have been residing in Canada for the last 3-4 years. They didn't interact or help me in any way with all my questions and just said that life is here, that you will earn a decent amount of money just come here. Coming from the middle class, I thought that after studying and with some Canadian experience I would have a good amount of money for 2022-2023 and I would go back and join a company in India after boosting the financial situation.

May 2019

I applied for a visa and it was approved within 5-7 days, forcing me to think how can a country provide someone with a visa so quickly, I discussed it with my parents and friends. They told me it must be because of my excellent academic record, and somehow I agreed with them.

July 2019

Once again, the same thought came to mind while I was collecting things to pack in the last week of that particular month. But even being stupid myself, I continued with his horrible decision despite my mom telling me to cancel the plan.

Fast forward >>

Aug 2019

He landed in Ottawa in August and was provided a hotel stay for a couple of days. I had some conversations with few people from India itself for accommodation who would also move at the same time, as I was the last to land in Canada, I had to move before August 26, 2019 and during my hotel stay I thought of going to the apartment where I was supposed to stay with a few strangers. I informed them about when I would go to meet them and they gave me a specific time (11 AM).

Image source: Google

Now this was the best thing that happened to me. My cell phone battery was almost dead, and I took the wrong bus so I got there around 2 in the afternoon. Those guys must have thought I'm not going since my phone was dead; they could not have contacted me regarding my availability.

I got to the house and called a couple of times, but no one answered, and since I could hear some songs from inside and the door was slightly open, I decided to go inside. As soon as I walked in and took the name, a group looked at me as they all sat on the floor with some dope. They were caught red-handed and to alleviate the situation they became too friendly as

"Hey brother come. Would you like to have some?

(In Hindu)

"Arre Bhai aja le your bhi maarega kya?"

I said: “No brother, I don't smoke or use those drugs” since I was stunned by that moment, I had no idea of ​​staying with them anymore but I didn't talk to them about this idea.

I didn't even know what places I was walking in Ottawa while asking for rooms to rent, but no one was there to help, and it was also Sunday, so it was even more complicated since all the apartment offices were closed. Tried to book Airbnb, but it was also packed for the next month.

Next day

I had to leave because the stay was over and I couldn't pay $ 100 per night. He carried all the luggage (2 suitcases of 23 kg each and a 7 kg bag on his shoulder) all day through the streets of Ottawa. Apartment offices said they don't have. Helpless and tired, he had no one. It was 4:30 PM and he was sitting in a garden near an apartment. It may sound embarrassing, but he was almost crying, although he wasn't crying, but he was broken inside and the tears were about to come out, sitting alone in an unfamiliar country with no food.

At that time, I began to regret moving to this country.

Fast forward around 8:30 PM, a couple of Indians saw me and asked me when they saw me in that condition. They took me to their house and told me I could stay at their house for three days because their lease was going to end and they were going to Toronto because they were willing to use their work permit there.

Many people saw me, but no one helped me, not even my former classmates.

After this I got a decent group and also the apartment, but they gave me a move-in date around September 3, which meant I had to spend three days / nights elsewhere. Since Airbnb was packed, I had no choice but to carry my luggage to college and sleep at the university for three days, which was not easy as I had to watch my luggage frequently while I was sleeping.

Sep 3, 2019

Moved in and there were six more people for a 3 BHK apartment. They gave me a room with a guy I didn't even know 0.00001%. The days progressed, and it became even more difficult for me to settle down, as the guy I share the room with uses to keep the room dirty and keeps the light on until 4 in the morning and after that he sleeps and finally torments me. sleep. The place still looks messy, which is not in my nature. It is unsanitary now, but I have no choice as I have to stay here at least a year.

Since I have invested so much now that I can't even think of going back without getting back the amount of money I have spent.

Part time job

Today, it is difficult to get a part-time job in Canada, according to some people who have been here for years. I got a job as a dishwasher in an Indian restaurant where I had to wash more than 10-15 slabs full of utensils, then I had to soak it and store it at the front desk during which other slabs used to get packed and the manager used to abuse for it. The shift, which was supposed to be 5 hours, used to be extended 2-3 hours overtime due to the large number of utensils, but overtime was not paid. All the other members used to leave, but as a dishwasher, you have to complete your work, after which you can have your food and then go home.

I have moved to a mega store that will close in a few months where I have to unload trucks, move heavy things, unwrap the packaging and have to move them to the main store that requires a lot of physical labor, in other words, a job job for which neither they pay us on time. Also, I get so tired that I couldn't properly focus on my studies, which is my main goal. I don't know where I'll be heading once this store closes. Here I attach some photos of my current job.

  • Winters are harsh here.
  • The people are amazing, but the culture is different, so it is difficult to settle here.
  • Your Indian experience would hardly work here, and you will have to start from scratch again.
  • Many people are here for PERMANENT RESIDENCE only and just looking to pass the course and are ready to do any work.
  • Many students don't even know why they are in the course they are enrolled in. They just wanted to get in here.
  • Your personal life would be significantly reduced.
  • Your parents are not here, so if you are hurting about something, you have to handle it yourself.

From day one, I have decided that after studies, I will use my work permit for about a year and try to return to India regardless of the pay I would receive. If I am mentally stable, I can use my skills effectively, but if I stay here for a long time, it will be a disastrous move for me in terms of personal life. I can't wait for my course to finish.

  • I don't want a high salary or a bungalow in India. I am a middle class kid who grew up in a 2 BHK and kept going the same. I will be happy with a small car instead of those fancy fancy cars.
  • I came here for money, but I can't compromise my studies for that. Happy with 40k-50k per month.
  • At least I will spend some quality time with my family members.
  • I know India is lagging behind in various ways, but I have worked there so I am used to that and I cannot get India out of myself.
  • A cup of tea with my family in the evening after work is better than everything.
  • I prefer to earn in INR rather than CAD.

Every day while working, I think that's why I made such a foolish decision. He was earning well and would have been well established for the next five years.

It looks green from afar, but the reality is different. So choose wisely and don't fall for these economically minded foreign education consultants. They will represent the Indian market in such a way that you will answer this call.

Life is hell here :(

I miss my family. I miss my stable life. And I am also to blame for this :(

Think twice and prepare for all of this if you plan to move here.

Good luck!!

Edit 1- I agree, despite doing a lot of research, I missed some vital points that I should have considered as a backup option, but traveling to Delhi from Vadodara from time to time was not possible for me, especially during the work period and that too to evaluate how good those guys (my future roommates) are. No one was going to say they take drugs and everything. Even smoking and drinking alcohol is acceptable despite being a non-drinker, I would have accepted it. Still, drug addiction could also lead to difficult situations, and the consequences could be completely different in a different country where I have invested almost everything.

Edit 2: Few people comment that I am demoting other people who aspire not to come here. Well, that is false. Why should I do that? I am not working for any organization that pays me for this. I acted out what I went through, and people still believe that a trip like this is their cup of tea, they can come here and live their dream. This answer will probably help you in a much more effective planning, and you will do enough activities not to face a situation like this. If I have criticized or demoted someone, then it is the consultants who sit in an air conditioned room in India with a cup of tea / coffee and advise or instead lure young people into college to achieve their objective.

Issue 3 - Few people say you should leave Canada if you didn't like its culture and people. Where did I say in my entire response that I hate Canadians or their culture? They are super friendly, and you can also go to my previous answer to see that. I just said that the taxes are high and that my savings would be negligible if I decided to stay here in the future. Canadians are amazing, I have made some Canadian friends at my workplace and they are brilliant in terms of everything. My managers are also Canadian and they never discriminate; instead they tend to learn my language and advise me on how to survive in -40 degree weather.

Peace :)

Here are 10 unique things you can do to find a job in Canada that other new immigrants to Canada don't, because there is no one to teach these things:

# 1 Record an elevator presentation video on your mobile phone

As a new immigrant, employers will have an unconscious bias against your communication skills, which is a soft skill that you will find a requirement in almost every job description.

If you have a video presentation, your vocabulary and communication skills will be exposed, and any biases or negative assumptions that the employer or recruiter may have made about you will be removed.

Here are 10 unique things you can do to find a job in Canada that other new immigrants to Canada don't, because there is no one to teach these things:

# 1 Record an elevator presentation video on your mobile phone

As a new immigrant, employers will have an unconscious bias against your communication skills, which is a soft skill that you will find a requirement in almost every job description.

If you have a video presentation, your vocabulary and communication skills will be exposed, and any biases or negative assumptions that the employer or recruiter may have made about you will be removed.

If you have trouble memorizing words, use a teleprompter app like Video Teleprompter Premium.

Create a great 30-45 second elevator pitch, upload it to YouTube, and add it to your LinkedIn profile. Link it from your emails to hiring managers and recruiters as well.

Research how to make good elevator pitches. Don't assume you know how.

# 2 Anglicate / shorten your name

This is a sensitive topic, but it is also worth mentioning. The University of Toronto and Ryerson University conducted a study that found that job applicants with non-Anglo names received between 20 and 40 percent fewer callbacks, compared to their Anglo-Saxon counterparts with exactly the same names. ratings.

This is less of a problem in large corporate organizations in Canada, where diversity and inclusion are more actively practiced.

If you have an ethnic name that is very long and you think it will be a challenge for a Canadian to pronounce it, consider shortening it for your resume and LinkedIn profile.

# 3 Grow your network to 25

As a new immigrant, you don't have a great network. And that is a problem.

Because according to the Business Council of Canada that surveyed 90 Canadian employers from a large industry, 90% of them get candidates from referrals.

According to author Orville Pierson in his book "Highly Effective Job Search," it takes, on average, 25 network connections to get the job you want.

These 25 people are not recruiters. They are people who have the power and authority to hire you.

So, make a list of 10-15 companies you want to target in Canada and use a filtered LinkedIn search by company and title, and the premium account to send InMail messages to these people directly.

Don't ask for work.

Just keep in touch and offer them value. If they accept your connection request, you don't need to sacrifice an InMail credit.

If they respond to your InMail, you get your credit back.

Think of the popular marketing concept of "The Rule of 7." Someone needs to see an ad 7 times before considering buying your brand.

If you must measure the progress of your job search, other than the number of jobs you apply for online every day. Let it try to send extension 175 (25x7) messages to your network for a reasonable period of time.

The messages "Hello" and "I hope you are doing well" do not count. It should be something that is of value to the recipient.

# 4 Write cover letters the right way

Recruiters and managers will tell you that they ignore reading cover letters.

That's because everyone tends to suck writing cover letters.

According to job search expert Liz Ryan from Human Workplace, a cover letter should be read like a business pain letter.

The focus should be on the business problem that you think your future manager is feeling right now and how you have solved that problem in the past.

Every job exists because there is a pain or a problem that needs to be solved.

Do your research on the best way to write cover letters rather than assuming you know how.

# 5 Post your resume and cover letter directly to hiring managers

The postal service is alive and well in Canada and is often underestimated.

The benefit of using it is that, unlike email, your letters will never be ignored.

Head over to Shopper's Drug Mart and invest in stamps and envelopes.

So those 25 contacts you discovered? Send them your resume and cover letter.

That's the easy part.

If you want to make a good impression, you should take the time to research the company and the person and create a personalized cover letter for each of them.

I know it takes a lot of effort. Well, how much do you want that first job in Canada?

# 6 Read this book "20 Minute Networking Meeting" by Nathan Perez

Many immigrants do not have a network in Canada.

But they make so many mistakes trying to build that network, even though they've been building a network their entire lives in their home country.

And the reason is that they have never been connected with a purpose.

This short book gives you the details on how to network with a purpose and achieve the ultimate goal of meeting professional Canadians in person.

# 7 Find Dr. Lionel Laroche on YouTube

You need to understand how the Canadian work culture differs from that of your home country.

Communication, leadership, feedback, meetings, punctuality are just some of the areas in which Canada is different from the rest of the world, especially compared to Asia and the Middle East.

Dr. Lionel Laroche specializes in Canadian work culture and how it relates to immigrants.

Watch your videos and reflect on how it relates to how you present yourself in the interview.

His talks are enlightening and entertaining.

# 8 Get Canadian experience the RIGHT way

Many will tell you to volunteer your time.

That is the wrong advice!

If you're looking for a job in accounting, hiring managers won't mind that you've gained "volunteer experience" packing food with meals on wheels or greeting visitors and handing out flyers at some random organization.

If you want to volunteer to give back to the community, good for you. Give your time generously anywhere.

But if landing a full-time job is your agenda, that's a completely different story.

It is best if you volunteer your time at events where you are surrounded by people who have the power and authority to hire you. Join an association in your field in Canada and communicate directly with the board of directors and be available to volunteer.

Yes, it is an investment to join an association. But if you finish your job search sooner or land you a job that pays you $ 10,000 more per year, it's worth the investment.

# 9 Read as many job descriptions for your target job title as you can

By default, every new immigrant I have worked with makes the mistake of depositing their past experiences on their resume.

Remember that it is not about what you did in the past.

It's about what your future employer needs and how you translate your past experience into those needs.

Read the job descriptions for your target job title. As many as you can. And when you're done, read a little more.

Look at trends in qualifications and requirements, industry language in Canadian terms, and any gaps you find.

Make sure your resume responds to those trends.

Fill in those gaps if you have them.

And after doing this research, decide if you need more education. Don't waste your time and money looking for more education just because you want to keep busy and feel productive.

Education is not valued as much in North America as it is in Asia.

If the job description doesn't mention a master's degree or certification for your target job title, don't bother getting one if your sole purpose is to improve your chances of landing your first job.

# 10 Make sure your resume has these words

According to a study by Career Builder, these are the most popular words to use on a resume. Make sure to use them in your experience section:

  1. Accomplished
  2. Improved
  3. Trained / Mentioned
  4. Administered
  5. Created
  6. Resolved
  7. Voluntary
  8. Influenced
  9. Increased decreased
  10. Ideas

Good luck and welcome to Canada!

I immigrated to Canada when I was 13 with my mother, from China. Life was difficult with just the two of us. His education was not recognized, so he had to work in jobs that paid the minimum wage. My mother had problems of her own and never became fluent in English. I guess it had to do with the initial setback she experienced, which led to years of depression. He recently moved to Taiwan after retiring.

I started my life here in the eighth grade, but quickly moved on to high school. My English was very poor at the time, but I improved very quickly. Some people here mentioned that high school

I immigrated to Canada when I was 13 with my mother, from China. Life was difficult with just the two of us. His education was not recognized, so he had to work in jobs that paid the minimum wage. My mother had problems of her own and never became fluent in English. I guess it had to do with the initial setback she experienced, which led to years of depression. He recently moved to Taiwan after retiring.

I started my life here in the eighth grade, but quickly moved on to high school. My English was very poor at the time, but I improved very quickly. Some people here mentioned that the high school system here is very strict and they would not allow you to skip any grades. I experienced the same opposition to skipping grades, but managed to convince my school to let me take math and science courses two years before my degree. For English they wanted to put me in ESL but I resisted, how could I learn English if they put me in a class full of students who couldn't speak English either? I thought ESL would be a horrible environment that would stop me, so I protested and demanded that they put me in regular English classes along with all the Canadian-born children. Everyone (my school principal, teachers, counselor, my mother, etc. ) everyone warned me not to do that, but I told them that if I failed, I would take full responsibility. It turned out to be a wise decision. By the end of high school, he was winning all the honors and awards, including in English and French. Since I had a two-year head start in math and science, I took all the advanced-level courses the school had to offer, whatever: law, accounting, advanced French, sociology, world history, political science, etc. It was fun. I also volunteered and did many enrichment activities. You name it: law, accounting, advanced French, sociology, world history, political science, etc. It was fun. I also volunteered and did many enrichment activities. whatever: law, accounting, Advanced French, Sociology, World History, Political Science, etc. It was fun. I also volunteered and did many enrichment activities.

One thing I really want to point out is that YOUR CANADIAN EXPERIENCE IS WHAT YOU DO WITH IT. Look at my mother and me. He spiraled into negativity after some initial difficulties; while I also encountered difficulties, opposition, lack of support, etc. but I always defended myself and demanded what I wanted and what I thought would be the best for me. When I first entered the school system, I was scared and lonely. Nobody wanted to work in a group with me because my English was poor. I had no friends. Even Chinese kids who had been in Canada longer than I made fun of me. But the key was that I never let those things bother me. There are good and bad people. Ignore the bad guys and actively seek out those who are willing to help you. I looked for those people and made the most of whatever support I could get. That really paid off. So my heartfelt advice to any newcomer to this country is: don't lose hope, be brave, and work hard. Be their strong advocate too! When others don't know what you are capable of, show them. At the end of high school, I was quite a popular girl and I got to choose who I wanted to work with on group projects (everyone wanted me to be in their groups since I was always the A + student). The table had really changed. She was quite a popular girl and I got to choose who I wanted to work with on group projects (everyone wanted me to be in their groups since I was always the A + student). The table had really changed. She was quite a popular girl and I got to choose who I wanted to work with on group projects (everyone wanted me to be in their groups since I was always the A + student). The table had really changed.

Many of you also mentioned that your cultural ties are strong. Well, I felt the same. But once again, I knew what I wanted and went for it. Instead of living at home while attending the University of Toronto, I took a scholarship with almost full tuition coverage from the University of Ottawa and moved on my own. My mom was very upset, she threatened to disown me, but she had my reasons: the University of Toronto is undoubtedly very prestigious, but for undergraduate education, prestige doesn't matter that much. The University of Ottawa offered me a full scholarship that would allow me to be independent. I thought it was a very valuable experience that really allowed me to grow not only academically but on many personal levels. That also turned out to be a wise decision. After earning my Bachelor of Science and Engineering in 5.5 years, I returned to Toronto and began the doctoral program in Laboratory Medicine at the University of Toronto. At this point, I had shown my mother that I could make good decisions about my life, so she took a step back. My poor dear mother considers me a kind of miracle and now she always says “I don't know how you achieved what you did… I don't know how you had the courage to do that… I don't know how you could learn English so fast…” I just told her that the secret was that, unlike her, I never gave up.

However, I must point out that the reason my mother did not influence me much was because I did not grow up with her. Instead, I grew up with my grandparents who instilled in me good values ​​and work ethic. My grandfather, in particular, was a war veteran and he also lived through decades of turmoil in recent Chinese history. Whenever things were difficult, he remembered his words: "On the battlefield, with bullets flying overhead, enemies charging at you, your best chance of survival is to charge forward with courage and hope for the best." I knew what was right and wrong and what I had to do to be successful in life thanks to my grandparents. I had little fear of facing my mother because I guess she had less influence on me ...

In terms of culture shock, well ... my advice to newcomers to this country is to observe others but at the same time be yourself. But always be kind and polite, and people will notice. You may act differently, but in time, your good intentions will be known, and kindness is appreciated by all people of all cultures.

Unfortunately yes. I have been in Canada for 8 months and I currently live in Regina. I have a Master of International Business Administration in the UK. I was a senior business consultant, partner, in a national consulting company in China. And now I am a barista at a coffee shop as my full time job. During 8 months, I only received 3 interviews sending more than 150 resumes. Also, I know many people like me. So yeah this is true


Here is the update.

Unfortunately yes. I have been in Canada for 8 months and I currently live in Regina. I have a Master of International Business Administration in the UK. I was a senior business consultant, partner, in a national consulting company in China. And now I am a barista at a coffee shop as my full time job. During 8 months, I only received 3 interviews sending more than 150 resumes. Also, I know many people like me. So yeah this is true


Here is the update.

First of all, thank you for your answer and your vote in favor. I was surprised that so many people saw my answer. I'm not a social media guy, I don't use Quera very often. It really took me a while to find out that people responded to my comments.

Since there are so many people involved, I now feel responsible not to confuse people seeking advice. People ask me why I didn't do my research before I got to Regina. The answer is yes, of course I did my research before coming, I know that the job market is intense, I know that the structure of the industry is traditional, driven by oil and agriculture, etc. This is basically what I do for a living, how can I? I don't But I'm here anyway, so I know the situation that I would probably have to face. The silver lining is that I also learned that Canada is a nice and friendly place, it may take a bit of effort to be successful in the job market, but when you do, the payoff would be great.

So ... why Regina? Well, mainly, I am here for three reasons. My wife studies here (U of R seems to have the best Rough Sets studio in the country? I don't get much of that). I want to change my career path a bit and further improve my professional capacity by obtaining CBAP. And ... it's easier to get PR on SK. Well, I also have a plan B, I can be an independent researcher and cooperate with multinational companies without depending on the local market by working remotely, which is what I do now. And ... surprisingly it became an advantage during the coronavirus outbreak. Still, I tried hard to see if I could be successful in the local job market and it turned out that I couldn't.

But don't take it wrong, my failure doesn't mean that everyone else will fail too. My job is a management consultant, I help people with business ideas and analyze market information, some people were right, I need to be in the information center, which is Toronto or Montreal in Canada. Business Analyst is the only position (with very little market demand) related to my profession, but here the person who wants to get the position is asked that they need to have IT experience and knowledge of information systems (for example, Agile, ITIL , SQL, etc.)). So basically, Regina doesn't really have anything for me. But if you are in the position and the industry is more about “people's lives” and also has public relations, you may have a chance to be successful here.

To find an ideal job, relevant experience has value, but you will need two fundamental things, first, public relations! second, recognized certificate. People who plan to come here and continue their career should seriously consider it. Remember, for regular jobs like sales or ordinary office clerks (extreme career position does count), compared to local competitors who were born here, grew up here and graduated here, YOU HAVE NO ADVANTAGES, public relations and certificate can get rid of the disadvantages.

So maybe it is an individual case, but the situation is still difficult. I know people who have everything I listed there and are still struggling to get a job. I know a doctor who transported cargo in a warehouse before, some engineers, especially construction engineers who work in supermarkets, an HR working in the mall. It's not easy, especially when you don't have perfect English and want a professional start-up job, believe me, English matters, whoever told you English doesn't matter, IT'S A LIE! I have IELTS 7.5 and still have no matches for native speakers referring to marketing activities (don't ask me how I know).

So be very careful with the idea, you will drop everything and start from scratch. So if you still feel like it's worth it and decide to come, plan ahead, be prepared, and good luck.

I have heard that a million people apply each year and only a lucky few thousand do.

This is a motivating story that only God knows is true: A farmer had two cans of cream and he wanted to send it to the dairy. As fate would have it before it closed the lids, a mouse / rat jumped into each one; he did not notice and closed his eyelids.

One mouse / rat gave up all hope and stopped struggling to stay afloat, and the other kept struggling with feet / hands, whipped up enough cream to make butter, this solid cream mass (butter) began to float to the surface. Mice / rats climb on it.

When the farmer opened each can, one was a dead mouse / rat, the other well fed during the trip, sitting very well on the piece of butter, jumped up and ran through the desert.

Moral 1: A quitter never wins, and a winner never gives up.

Moral of story 2: And this is the history of Canada too, work hard and I hope you make it. Some will do it big, some will, and some may not make it.

Enough of fake / fictional stories - here's my own true story.

My true story: I came to this country with my new girlfriend in tow, in the early 70's, from India. I have had M.Sc. with some years of real industry experience and wife BA; These degrees are from a very prestigious university of the time, the U of Punjab. We were both in our early to mid-20s. I had only $ 8 and my wife had $ 500, which was given to her by her parents.

All mothers love their children, just like my mother; He cried non-stop at the Delhi airport because he knew all that I have eight dollars. She and I had no idea that my wife had five hundred dollars given to her parents just in case.

She took me aside and said, I'm anxious, you all have eight dollars.

I said: Maa, your son is not dead yet.

She said: I am not worried about you, I very concerned about my Beti(daughter in law), she has not seen tough life. Please take care of her and make sure you feed her first.

As soon as glass doors closed we were of our own, no cell phone, google map, and an extensive list of contacts, social media feedback.

Well, only one flimsy contact and super negativity around him.

Regardless and fast forward: It had been four and half decades in this country, soon it will be half a century.

Lessons learned:

  • All new immigrants regardless of color/caste/creed/went through this exercise to settle.
  • Pioneers came to this total hostile land, unforgiving weather, and complete waste land. When we came in 70 s, they and their descents and other immigrants before us made this country to World class
  • Life was difficult but vowed to stick around, because there was no choice to turn back. Our mother land was exhausted because foreigners had looted our wealth for 1100 years and we were slaves in our country.
  • Turned bodies and mind like stones, never said no any work, dirty/clean/any shift/any day/the list goes on.
  • Vowed to get Canadian Credentials and Experience. We both eventually found our places in the Sun.
  • Canadian Government and Canadians do not owe us anything, stamping our passport was a big opportunity. Now it was up to us to make or break it.

All the dreams are fulfilled:

  • We helped/assisted our parents back home: They visited us many times, finally they migrated here and then they wanted to go back. They had a big dream to see North America, and we showed them NA inside out. My mother and father had small dreams, we made sure they fulfilled all of them here. To some extent we helped our relatives also, with small things, and they all appreciated it.
  • We got an excellent education in North American systems: The second generation ended up in Ivy league, let us hope our total of 50 years of hard work the third generation gets nominated or wins Nobel Prize(We wish).
  • In short Canada affected four generations: Our parents lives, our lives, our kids lives and now our grand kids lives.
  • The whole journey was complete when my father hugged me and said: Son, I am very proud of you and my mother blessed my wife with millions of blessings everyday. My wife and my parents bonded they found a loving daughter and she respected them like her own.
  • No regret in our hearts: We made sure fulfill every need, desire of any kind and showed them NA, as much as possible.
  • Gift of Grandparents to our sons: My parents had tremendous influence in the upbringing of our two boys, they taught language, work ethics, culture, respect and our roots.

( The eight dollar my mother gave at the Delhi airport at the time of departure were blessed, and we never looked back. Thanks Maa, you taught me to be hard like a rock)

My mother on cloud nine, with her first grandson, her most favorite grandson, who is end product of this lady’s teaching.

  • My parents were very loving grand parents.
  • My wife, taking care of my mother, when she was getting very old.
  • My mother at older years was totally bed ridden.

Soon it be 50 years of here of /hard times/successes/failures/ happiness/sadness/ optimism/pessimism/ various ups and downs.

( This is my last picture with my mother in my mind, she passed away within a few days after I left, she knew it her end was very near). I also knew it now separation time was imminent, I saved my all vacation to be with her, but when the time came to say good bye,

She asked me: To stay for a few more days, your dad is lonely, he is calling me, now I must go. And I want to die in your arms.

I said: Maa, you are far away for your 100th birthday.

Unfortunately I left, and she passed away after a few days. ( And that is my biggest regret, because she did not breathed her last in my arms, that she used to tell me, her wish)

Fast Forward:

Here is 50 years of our lives:

Some more smart people than us, who also came with no money almost penniless at the same time frame, became Billionaire with their positive attitude, hard work and discipline. I know these two billionaires who almost came on the same flights to this new land. Well, some did not make it, not that they did not try. In my view success is made of many ingredients, like a tasty dish, if one ingredient is short or excess, dish is worthless.

Others who complained, looking for entitlements, concentrating on negativeness are still looking for their place in the Sun. Some did work very hard but next generation took too much interest in the side shows and in the end either ended up in jails, welfare or the the worst.

To the best of our knowledge, this country does not invite anyone and does not stop to leave(provided there is no pending case). Once your passport is stamped now it is up to you: My family and I followed same foot steps of British and French pioneers, and never looked back. My wife and I vowed that we were ready sacrifice our present for the future, even if our 3rd generation makes it big, it was worth our present sacrifices.

This is how Canada was built:

Lesson learned:

We continued on the same line: it does not matter you may be Ivy league grads or corporate lawyer.

Canadian/North American Education and Experience:

  • It is not a myth, it per sure real, in the beginning, years I did not believe as the years passed and I did get NA education and experience. I realized the difference.
  • Please browse and see how the rest of World stands against your institutes/university. Sometimes results are shocking when a big name in one country are not in the first 250 list on the International level.
  • No country is washed in holy water, these days fake references, C.V, and degrees are found all around the globe.
  • Canadian corporate world learned and is aware of it, at my last job, HR, asked me permission to call my U of Guelph, Ontario, Canada to check my credentials. (Please note, I am in this country for several decades in fact soon be 50 years, I also go through the same process) Therefore, Canadian companies ask for authentic Canadian degree and experience. Once I reached to the Executive level, HR, showed the potential problems and learned first hand some crafty works of art.

Also

  • Canadian Experience is a very undefined thing when you will work here several years it will start to sync in. As I see, it is all about working in the team spirit, excellent communication skills, perfect English preferably with no accent and this list goes on, This is my perception, of Canadian experience, others may have different ideas. In my career, I reached to the board room, and then I quit to pursue my dream.
  • I reached to a director level and used to report to CEO, I believe he was blue blood Canadian he was born into extremely wealthy family Canadian from English origin, 100 percent gentleman. Not only he inherited huge estate he himself was extremely bright, he was born leader, a visionary, a calculated risk taker. I grew under his shadow tremendously, technically, emotionally and he gave me lot of knowledge.
  • He was more of a brother than a boss; he was a giant in his profession, one day he gently told me to let his secretary check my written communications to the large clients. I know he did not mean any insult or think any less of me, but later on, he himself asked there was no need to do it anymore.

This is all myth that Canada creates new jobs*. There may be a niche market. Usually, such peaks come when there is some Government funding. And they come and go. Often nothing comes out of it, pie in the sky schemes.

  • Have you ever heard an MBBS from India/or such less advanced country, opened his/her shop asap he/she landed here?
  • Have you ever heard a DDS from India/China/or such less advanced country, opening a dental clinic here straight from the airport?
  • Have you seen any professional Engineering job, getting the job with imported credentials?
  • Have you seen any imported accounting credentials?

This is all a myth that Canada creates new jobs *. There may be a niche market. These spikes typically occur when there is some government funding. And they come and go. Often nothing comes out of it, a cake in the sky.

  • Have you ever heard a MBBS from India / or a less advanced country, opened his shop as soon as possible that he landed here?
  • Have you ever heard a DDS from India / China / or a less advanced country, opening a dental clinic here straight from the airport?
  • Have you seen any professional engineering job, getting the job with imported credentials?
  • Have you seen any imported accounting credentials that have any value in Canada, or the legal professionals?

Bueno, algunos trolls escribirán una explicación inútil sobre los trabajos anteriores.

Have you seen any plumber/electrician/welder getting a job, a plumber, electrician or welder or heating and cooling technician

Of course, not,

Why??????

  • All these jobs are protected one way or the other, right and wrong.

Well, some trolls will write a useless, based on their ignorance explanation about the above jobs.

  • Yes, on papers, there is a process to go to these professions.
  • Talk to the people who tried that route?????

Let us go one step lower jobs,

Unskilled or here we call general help, but this job is with Government/City/or some very well established organization with a lot of benefits and excellent wages.

Any FOB, fresh off the boat, means new arrival, Do you know anyone who got that job?

Of course not.

Simply that job was already filled by a friend of a friend of the high up in that organization. Going through the selection process in most cases is a sham.

Please do not write BS; there is not any profession that I am not aware of Mafia-style protection

The list goes on

Yes, a few trades which are in some short supply, may get a job, and those are the people thump their chests. But these glories come and go from Canada.

When all the glut from HIB, visa put their tents in Canada, those jobs will be a dime a dozen.

Yes, Canada has created a tremendous amount of opportunities for the coming generations.

As follows:

Yes, Canada always had a shortage of people who are willing to work, in back-breaking work. In a very hostile environment/ perceived dirty work/jobs which are not 9 to 5/posts. The tasks which do not carry a lot of benefits/jobs which fell from the favor of teenage employees/jobs that are shift work/jobs which do not give Sat/Sun off/jobs which need heavy lifting/ the list goes on.

These are jobs:

  • Tim Horton, a coffee shop franchise, where you find now middle age, even seniors and serving coffee/donuts.
  • Macdonald,
  • Truckers.
  • Septic Tanks cleaning
  • Janitors.
  • Gas station attendants.
  • Farm and seasonal work.
  • Cab/Uber/driver.
  • Pizza delivery guys/gals.
  • Barbers.
  • Nail/face make up.
  • Porters.

The list goes on and on and on and on.

In the past all or most of the fast-food work was done by the Canadian Teenagers, now it is falling from grace, now all you see middle age/even seniors in these trades. And most are from India, especially from the Punjab region.

In my close to fifty years, now I see guys with the full set of beard with hair net(that is the law), handling fast foods in the restaurants. This field was strictly reserved for the Canadian, mostly white teenagers.

Therefore, yes, Canada always had opportunities, but what kind of opportunities????

Please go and read the Canadian history books, immigration patterns, strict laws keeping Canada white, stories of injustices

  • Let us start with Chinese laborers who built the rail lines,

Who suffered tremendously and extremely hostile immigration policies towards them.

  • Let us go from there to Italian immigrants who carved their way with muscles.
  • Let us go there to Ukrainians who were labeled “ Garlic Eaters” they carved their way.
  • The list goes on from one group to the other.

The new immigrants, in some cases, usually lose the first generation to create a productive environment for the second generation.

Provided the second generation does not do as follows.

  • Walk away with loser partner.
  • Joins the gangs for the quick buck.
  • Hooked on the alcohol/drugs/
  • Drops out of school
  • Breaks the law ends up a born loser.

The answer: Canada always replenishes the stock to pay taxes and do most of the above-stated work.

These are the jobs for people from less advanced countries, and sure they are employed.

Canada has a lot of opportunities, bring a shipload of boys and girls from the less advanced countries, give them student visa, then PR, and then these jobs.

It is a life long process to get out of modern slavery; maybe the second generation will see some benefits. If and some survive western lifestyles,

Unless you know the ins and outs of this culture/country, please think very carefully before sending your very young daughters here on a student visa.

Yes, he has a job Walmart Canada, and he is a poster boy.

Maybe as a greeter, Welcome to Walmart, have a lovely weekend, come again.

Yes, he has a job, as a security guard, maybe his parents sold a piece of land to send him here.

Maybe their parents sold their land in native Punjab; these kids were ashamed to till and work their property, there a white Canadian is getting the work done. Enjoy the employment, in fake Rayban glasses, torn jeans, and rented a car.

  • In case your kid is marginal in school/education, he/she will go from bad to worst in these countries. English/French medium may be an extra burden.
  • School/work may almost kill the kid; Western kids are altogether different breed to cope with all these things.
  • Get ready to start from zero if you are coming from a less advanced country.
  • Some professions have a bit of value for the time being to get recognized, but it is only a question of time before these professions become fully saturated. I have seen this phenomenon in scores of businesses.

Nursing is a prime example: At one time due to acute shortage, nurses from overseas, they were treated like princesses, now try to find full-time employment even for native-born white Canadian girls/boys.

A lot of B.S. and glorification: By a new immigrant who comes from unfortunate situations in their lives. They are baffled with open space, clean roads, and minor things which are very reasonable. And these new immigrants have not paid a single penny in taxes as yet when they will see good fifty-cent gone from their paycheques then they will not take too many pictures in the parking lot to send back to their villages.

This couple most likely from India, Fresh off the Boat, is very excited to be here, taking pictures in a busy plaza parking lot.

To the amazement of the native Canadians, who are wondering why on earth they are so excited to take pictures in busy building store plaza.

I knew it all the answers but kept my mouth shut, to send these pictures to their village that now they have joined the White elite, at least in their minds.

Yes, indeed we show our this behavior in the air travels, eating out, in the busy parking lots, doing shopping in the plaza, and try to bargain like a village market.

Some are coming straight from remote villages who have not seen a western toilet in their lives. And it is their first interaction to the civilized world.

This is an old beat-up car, photo opp, in a bustling plaza, in fact very crowded and busy.

People were a bit puzzled, what is so romantic here to take pictures of the car?

I knew it this couple is fresh off the boat, and they are in extreme hurry to send this picture to their village.

( Because when we came close to five decades, once upon a time, we did the same things, at that time our mothers were very proud of our beat-up car/fake Ray-Ban/and legendary blue jeans.

I realized after seeing this couple, that time has not changed; still, we are 100 s of years behind.

Indian trolls:

In case you have a great idea please write your article/ also in the international community of writers, Indian trolls are well known. Most of them write non-related garbage and try to spoil and well-written essays/articles/string of thoughts.

I have written thousands of articles/answers on Quora, except for Indians I have not received even one negative feedback from Pakistani and Chinese brothers and sisters.

Forty-six percent of Canadians are only 200 dollars away from Bankruptcy.

People who thump their chests free health care????

No Sir/Madam: We all pay for each and everything, one way or the other, now by the time, this system is stumbling, sick itself, due to mass scale wastage, abuse, and mismanagement.

How do I know?

  • One of my dear and near one just retired after 45 years of service from this field. This utopia is not sustainable, where one or no one working in the family with ten members using and abusing the system. Soon the Canadians will be kissing this system last hurrah.,

For your bedtime stories:

  • In a country where 46 percent are 200 dollars short from bankruptcy and

Enjoy the following post.

What jobs???, Industry is almost all gone, we are in service-related business, whatever is left we extract something from the earth and sell when we finish that we start something else.

We have striped the ocean empty, and we have striped naked all the lumber from Canada. Now we are trying to stripe all the oils from the sands. Eventually, we will finish that too, or we cannot do anything about it.

One for night time reading:

I get a lot of personal mail, most of the people from India, there is nothing new they all complain about the usual problems in life.

Once again nothing new: When I left India in the early 70 s,

The second part of the letter is usually glorifying the West, and they believe it is close to paradise.

My conclusions:

  • Human suffering remained the same, since Lord Buddha left home, in search of the truth.
  • There is no paradise on the earth; each place has its issues. Some write glorious things here; they do not write when you walk in minus 30 or below; this paradise is not paradise anymore. This list of hardships goes on here as well.

Last but not least:

  • Most of us realize in the previous run of our life when we saw the waste of your tax dollars. Here some people did not work all their lives and maybe for several generations. They just waited for the Dole from the Government, and some had a double-dipping system, working on the side also.
  • And realize the fancy plans which you dreamed off when retired, may not be worth shi@.

Then you might realize, what a fool I had been?

  • Some of us had worked all their lives and to provide for the kids, in the end, think about a mother:
    A whose only son joined the gang, and when she came home, he was lying dead, in front of the fireplace, in a gangland war.
  • God forbid, that your daughter is beaten to death; in fact, it was a racial issue, (Reena Virk murder case). However, Govt would never admit, it was the gut-wrenching case of Canadian born, east Indian girl.

Reena Virk - Google Search

I hope it helps, close to fifty years in Canada, I have seen almost everything, been there done it.

In case everything and every suggestion from this post fail:

Remember this golden formula for Canada.

  • First-generation worked very hard irrespective of caste, color, religion, there is/was no free lunch.
  • The second generation knew to survive and thrive in Canada is not a joke.

The second generation, in most cases, stayed focused.

  • By the third generation, a percentage they learned how to scam the system, wanted to make easy money and diverted the attention of the parents/teachers/clergy/public into soft and cushy ideas. Talk about changing the world, even though they have not cleaned their closet since the Clintons left the office.
  • By the time all popcorn popping ideas failed, by the fourth generation, all the hard work first two generations had gone into ashes.
  • No identity, no trace, nothing to be proud of,
  • This is a general formula; in some communities, the things do not go up to third/fourth generation.

The total damage starts: As soon as the family lands, and there is no turning back. Alcohol/drugs/violence/criminal records/falling grades/no interest in school/too much freedom/ and the list goes on.

  • Some lose their loving partner due to alcohol/water fountain talks/too much freedom. And other issues of change of scenery.
  • Some have nothing to show for any area of their lives, kids — self, spouse, parents back home. Life started with zero ended with zero.

Welcome to Canada, I have seen in the last five decades, the Canadian dollar is very stubborn does not leave Canada.

Some immigrants made it by hard work, saving, sacrifices, and their next-generation lost everything.

Thirty years of Canadian Industrial/corporate experience from trenches to about four-star general, as they say. In now fifteen years in self-employment and counting, no sign of slowing.

  • When we came to Canada, our motherland was struggling big time, and we had no hope in Hell.
  • We all had no choice; we almost all came with a borrowed one-way ticket; we were determined to help our families back home.
  • India was on its knees there was extreme poverty, helplessness, desperation,

However, India of our time was very pure, nationalistic movies, intense love for the parents/siblings/sacrifices/ and our teachers, elders, the whole society, taught us, ethics, hard work, sexual purity.

Alcohol was unknown except in some communities, and the drug was not even heard of, never mind use.

To excel in school/college/university was the only mission because that was the only way to get out of poverty, help our parents, who most of them were shattered souls due to partition of India.

India made sure that we all got an excellent education, who worked hard, made it in life. Because to get a university education was not a joke, to get in good programs was life and death situation. There was the only university of Punjab, in the whole of combined Punjab, including Haryana, Punjab, and Himachal.

Our mothers woke us up at 4 in the morning, made tea for us, and we and our school/college/university, and then it was all Hell on the Earth, until 11 PM.

Not to outshine was an option, and then to do Ph.D. in the west or other postgrad degree was the only route.

Well, people of my time did not beg for HIB and go on knees for the green card, the USA, offered a star-studded position to those stars.

It was known: When any American met an Indian, he/she would ask: Are you a doctor? You must a NASA, Engineer? Well, you must be faculty in the University? You must be in management of a well-known company?

The offsprings of those pioneers in North America, most of them now are massive stars in their own right.

There were no fraud and abuse cases in the student visa, almost all came on some form of assistantships.

Some Fake resumes, some fake degrees, and some fraudulent HiB, was unknown.

When we came to this country, as I recall, we had to fight for existence and even for hard back-breaking work, we had to fight for work.

The best I could describe, it was exactly same as an episode from movie Deewar, where helpless laborers had to fight for existence.

The early immigrants no matter which country, color, ethnicity, Europeans, non-Europeans, everybody had to fight and make a place. In case you have colored the struggles multiplied even for the safety of your kids.

Unless you have more fire than the hero of this movie, good luck, you will be another number lost in the dirt of Canadian soil.

The MIM is an exact replica of an MBA. While this may seem enticing, it comes with a series of shortcomings as well.

MBA degrees are career accelerators because their structure and curriculum add value to people who already have experience in a particular area due to their previous work experience. Therefore, the management curriculum allows them to grow even more in their sector after an MBA. Someone who has factory experience for a few years for an automotive company may be accelerated to a leadership role after graduating with an MBA from a company operating in a similar domain. Yes

The MIM is an exact replica of an MBA. While this may sound appealing, it also has a number of shortcomings.

MBA degrees are career accelerators because their structure and curriculum add value to people who have domain expertise already in a particular area due to their prior work experience. Hence the management curriculum allows them to grow in their sector further after an MBA. Someone who has experience on the factory floor for a few years for an automotive company may be accelerated into a leadership role after graduating with an MBA at a company operating in a similar domain. If you want to be hired as a financial consultant with Goldman Sachs after you graduate with a management degree, the recruiter will want to know what you’ve done in the field of finance with a company in the past. Hence a combination of your education and your previous work experience/domain expertise makes you a hireable asset as a mid-level/high-level manager for companies. The MIM degree takes people in without work experience. Hence the curriculum being exactly like an MBA can work to your disadvantage sometimes. You may have gained great classroom and case-study based knowledge in the areas of strategy, marketing, and finance. However, when an interviewer is thinking about hiring you, he will want to know the prior real-world experience you have with the relevant products/processes you will help lead in the future at your prospective company.

Coming to Canada specifically- Be sure to go to a top-notch university or program if you want to go to Canada for pure management courses. While Canada is a great destination due to easier immigration norms, the number of job opportunities in Canada are still limited. There is demand in the fields of Computer Science, Information Systems, Coding and Analytics and not too much for other fields (MBAs are great too because candidates usually have strong previous work experience.). If you are looking at MIM, pick programs which allow you to pick up skills in the domain of analytics, product management and project management. These are widely known as “hard skills” that are in demand in the market. If you do a qualitative management education with limited work experience and avoid the quantitative management skills, you will find it difficult to nail down a job.

At Gradvine, we guide 100s of students to the top programs in Canada, America, Asia, Europe and Australia. We have mentors from the finest universities across these countries hence we bring you first hand, unbiased information on studying abroad and career guidance.

I have been actively researching this topic since I moved to Canada from US. After extensive research on various sites (Poets and Quants - Covering all that matters in the business school world, with in-depth analysis of B-schools rankings and full-time MBA programs, Google), attending seminars from Canadians schools in Toronto, talking to alumni who are based in the US (LA/SFO where I want to land up), I have come to the conclusion that:

  1. Canadian MBA from a well known school is equivalent to a mid to low tier MBA school in the US.
  2. MBA in Canada from a good Canadian school like Ivey School of B

I have been actively researching this topic since moving to Canada from the US After extensive research on various sites (Poets and Quants: covering everything that matters in the world of business schools, with an in-depth analysis of B school rankings and full-time MBA programs, Google), attending Canadian school seminars in Toronto, speaking to alumni who are based in the US (LA / SFO where I want to land ), I have come to the conclusion that:

  1. Canadian MBA from a well-known school is equivalent to a mid to low level MBA school in the USA.
  2. MBA en Canadá de una buena escuela canadiense como Ivey School of Business, UofT Rotman o York University conducirá a grandes perspectivas solo en Canadá.
  3. Canada is a very small economy as compared to the US and therefore the said prospects are very limited and competitive in nature. Therefore, you may end up in a middle management job in Canada for the rest of your life.
  4. There are some people who have managed to make the move to the US but again can manage to be in middle management positions which is not that bad.
  5. Most of the Canadian MBAs cost as much as any degree from a top tier US college which has higher prospects. Therefore, in my mind the ROI is limited to low.
  6. Most Canadian universities, even the top ones, are unheard of by anyone outside of Canada. This is a disadvantage.
  7. The networks are local and limited. Therefore, you cannot expect to reap the benefits of the same

I am considering an MBA in the US since I do not want to limit my options. This has better prospects world wide.

It totally depends on your skill,education,attitude etc.Some may land a job very early while other may struggle for years.The minimum pay jobs like warehouse associate,jobs in restaurants are easy to get but the place where you reside plays an important role in getting a job. it is good to have a good network before you land Canada
