Prash,
60K in toronto is barely into middle class living.. taxes take abt 40%.. rent is abt 12K minimum.. so what you are left with is 30K..
Stability in Canada is overrated.. these are the best of days and Salaries are still not rising.. All I can say is.. you might be happier living in Halifax, Ottawa or Vancouver.. Toronto is overcrowed, overheated and over in general!

Thanks windsor_boy.

I am interested in GTA area as I have a relative in Mississauga and a friend also and I have been there for a week and I kind of liked the place.

Now Halifax reminds me of Keane, Inc. I used to work for them in 2000-2001 in Boston. It's so good to see folks taking some time to provide helpful advise. I think I will keep myself open to relocating to outside GTA area if I see better job opportunities there as that would be my primary concern.

It might not be the best option but considering my situation, I see a stay of 3 years in Canada with an OK IT job as reasonably good.

Prash,

If the firm u r working is big and reputed, they will find work for you. If not they are no better than a badyshop.

U have stated that u want citizenship. Since u have made up your mind abt Canada, all the best.

DIO

How is the IT job and hourly rate scene with agencies, which place you with employers for 3-6 months contracting positions. Working for 9+ months in a year on an average on contract with averaging 35$ an hour sounds OK to me.

My friend has suggested it's a good option and if you are confident of your skills, it's a good option. I can incorporate a company and this contracting can help with taxes as well.

Senior Desis, any ideas. Thanks.

How about this windor_boy. I will take you out for lunch coming spring if you happen to be in GTA area arount that time.

I have my mind made up for moving to Canada and primary purpose is eligibility for citizenship in 3 years.

I am just trying to get the opinion from seniors here regarding the job market for my skill set and scenario for going on contracting positions.

Thanks to folks who responded and Thanks to Ani70 for posting useful info on CanadianDesi in general.
