Depends on your current position
THere are two answers , I can suggest.

If you are already settled here in a career job , then staying put in Canada is probably the best option.


If you want to migrate to Australia because there is no career job here , then

--Life cannot get any worse even if you move to Australia
--Even if there is no career job in australia, atleast there is wonderful weather year round
--also there is nothing to lose in canada by going to australia . Only something to gain in terms of job or better life
--Rents and cost of living is cheaper in Australia
--Also never heard of professionals working in factories in Australia

so it is a 'plus' anyway you look at it

My Oz Experience
Hi Anita

I am an Austrlian citizen currently residing in India but will be moving to Canada soon.

Golden Eye is right - if you have a job in Canada then think twice (unless you are in IT). I did my Diploma in Business and MBA from Australia but when I migrated there I had to work in factories for around 6 months before I found a job (BTW- this job paid me even less). However, this gave me some credit in the industry and then I found my way up.

Most of the people I have met are working below their professional standard.
E.g - I know a guy (IIT and IIM (A)) working with Rail Infrastructure in Sydney as a Business Analyst (He was working as VP with one of the MNC banks in India). He has been there for more than 10 years now.A friend of mine who was working with AT&T in USA and drawing around US$250K was teaching at CQU university for $50K. He recently bought a 7 Eleven store and is doing well now.


No doubt the weather in Australia is lovely but is it worth taking the risk.

Now, I shall paint a rosy picture for you. I have seen people with no professional qualification doing well and driving Mercedes in Sydney but the nos are few.

hey thanks for the reply...though i am seeing two different views here. i mean does Australia have good jobs for qualified individuals or would say Canada has more opportunity? " Also never heard of professionals working in factories in Australia" does this mean its better then here?

plz let me know
thanks again

Hi

If you really hate Canadian weather then only migrate to Australia. If you like good people around you live in Canada. I lived in Australia for 6 years.

Although weather is a big dampening factor in Canada , but feel that people vs weather - people take preceedence .

Jayram you have lived in Aus for 6 years and now you are in Canada . Kindly share in a jist , your experience of life and people in Australia . Would be helpful for people who are considering moving to Aus from Can .

Can a person be both a Canadian as well as Australian citizen ?

Lastly , someone has made IT an exception . Why so despite IT not being on the MODL ?

Appreciate your feedback s.

I am not Jayram or Anita..................

But I have two friends.

First friend, who is a software engineer was lived and became citizen of two common wealth countries ........Australia and Canada ........................ but finally returned to India and living last two years with his family and doing his own business.

The second friend who came to Canada to do his Master's degree and gained citizenship and then moved to the states. Finally, now he is in India working for a Fortune 500 company in a dictorial position.

They both said they are more happy and peaceful after they returned to backhome.............................

Loser Two could not get H1B so next option " Immigration to Canada"

I agree with that they may have found peace in India , but please ask them whether they found peace only after having lived in Can and Aus ? If not then they would have been at peace even before .

I feel some of us come out to try different countries to find out the goods of living outside .Most stay on and some return back to India when they find that other countries may not be as good as India in certain aspects esp culture and religion which is so hard to part off with . Everyone has his own priorities .

But one thing has been clarified that one can become both a Can and an Aus citizen . Thanks .

Work wise: Very unprofessional, Not a pleasant atmosphere to work, All engineers are doing Security work and driving Cab , except for IT guys and Trades people( like tool and die, AC, Welding etc). Very hard to move up and get training. Goras prefer Chinese over us.

Travel: On Sydney trains: goras wont sit next you, unless there is no space. I go and sit between goras, if they donít like it, I donít have problem, and they will have a problem in their mind. So go and sit between the goras .

So there is lot of racism - these are same people who moved from UK. I have seen in front of my eyes a store manger telling a Chinese that he send him back to his country. Other goras also ganged up with the gora. It was shocking to me. One youg guy standing near ATM queue started abusing me. You will find those everywhere.

Yes if you go there and increase our population that would be a great service to next generation Asians.

Best thing I love in Sydney is food: I really miss the Asian food: Singapore, Indonesian Thai, and Malaysian . If you like food , that is the place to be.

Lastly: Now you will require 4 years to get a passport instead of 2 years.
