I also agree to that. In fact earleir I thought of going alone.Ofcourse due to kids exams and other reason. But I just got my visa week. Back and now I am planning to complete my kids exams as well as wind up house here and start all of us togather. Only reason what Manjeet gave, having life partner with me in difficult times. I know of my cousine who is terribly home sick now who made mistake of not taking wife with him. He keeps calling his wife and us almost everyday and keep on grumbling for his mistake. His wife now all set to go eventhough he is not yet settled.

Also many time male will have to do some extra studies in order to get field jobs (P.E. or CPA like...) It is possible only if one of the member atleast making money run the show. SO that all your saving do not drain out before you realise.

I totally agree with Manjeet. My personal experiences also validate what Manjeet has mentioned about moral support from ones spouse.
Also My wife found a job sooner than I did. May or may not mean anything.

Middle East to Canada...
Jyoti and Murti,

Welcome to Canada. Coming from the Middle East should definitely give you an edge in terms of driving a vehicle, dealing with multi-cultural society and above all a better sustenance power.

As far as your qualification is concerned, it might not help you to find a job initially and you may have to enroll youself in some Canadian recommended courses/education in your line of work. You should be prepared to take up a co-op job in your field and this greatly helps to get absorbed in the Canadian workplace.

In my opinion, the head of the family can come here first and do the ground work (may be 1-2 weeks in advance) and the family can follow later.

I am myself an Ex-Dubai resident. We have seen that sometimes only one member of the family stays here with children. They leave Canada as soon as they receive their passports. This normally happens when one of the partner is doing exceptionally well at his/her present place of work. Most of the times they are not confident or do not want to risk leaving a good job or business.

We also know the other majority of folks who are in their mid-careers with younger kids and consider Canada as their home and will stay here for good. And I am one of those proud ones :cheers:

Please let me know if I can in some way help you guys in settling down.

Hi Jyoti and Murthy,

Like you both, I am also working in Dubai. I migrated with family in 2002 and came back to Dubai.

There is no hard and fast rule for success. But people going from Dubai...things will be difficult. You will not get surprised seeing Toronto. I did not see anything new in Canada which I didnt find in Dubai except for greenery.

When I landed first I thought I have reached a " dream land". I was terribly disappointed...except for greenery i did not find things very enterprising.

Next is the job scenario......The more qualified you are more difficult it is to get jobs.....You belong to the lower category...you get job easily. It also depends what background you have. If you have worked in a highly paid job you will be disappointed.

I work in an Oil company in Dubai and I was terribly disappointed job wise...After 12 years of Engineering experience working for American and British companies..who have same standards as Canadian companies...they did not accept me.My only fault was that with my qualification and experience.. I belonged to a job which has a salary bracket of $ 65 k plus...which is not my fault.

Transition period of 2 years is there......try to get into smaller jobs initially......I guess people will get adjusted..........

Only thing is you need to make up your mind that THIS IS THE LAND where you are going to spend rest of your life and try to adjust to whatever opportunity you get...........This is the only was you can succeed.

Deep


You win some, loose some..everything is not justified in this world.

My hubby wants that we'll (i & my hubby) come together in canada. Is this better to come canada together or i'll come canada later. He is a principle applicant. Is this make any difference or just a myth. Plz advice






For some Extent it's true but its depends on which field you are gonna apply but its better to have job offer in hand and then apply for visa and come to canada . i would suggest first head of the family shouldcomes first and settel and make a way for you , but before all i would suggest you consult http://www.xiphiasimmigration.com" target="_blank">canada immigration consultants before taking any decsion .

Why is he answering a question from 2004 ??? ..ha ha

TK are you typing on your Office computer during office hours , or are you typing on your smart phone with a data plan on it from your office & from God's own country ?

I think you should use your office computer & their internet , so that you can save your phone battery plus NOT incur extra data charges ( internet charges ) on your phone ( Prepaid or Postpaid )

Just a suggestion that's all.

Adam,
Thanks for the concern.
My office gives me many free things incl.:
1. SIM No internet. But we have Wifi at office so I take from that. I just check my what's app from that.
2. Internet in my work computer. I do CD from that.
3. Laptop with internet connection at home. So any post that comes from 10 pm to 1 am is from that.

Murali
