This topic has been beaten till death.

Damn, we really need that approve/agree/disagree feature.

" If it's said by an economist, it must be true"

Ooh .. wait ... it's : "If it's in a book, it must be true" - Milhouse :D

This topic has been diverted to showing how terrible a country called Canada is.

Anyway do not read too much into such news Prabhu. It is negative news and will easily stick to your mind. 7% unemployement also means the rest of 93% are employed.

People are getting laid off but at the same time people are also getting jobs in different fields, some after going for some training or education.

I can't resist pitching in my share of thread hijacking. I think Canada has no positives. Take for example (just one, I promise) the storm water drainage on my street...the damn water always drains perfectly, depriving my 3 yr old few puddles to jump around. Those engineers with stupid calculators...damn them.

On the other hand, where my parents live (I'll let you guess the country they live since this is all about Canada...), the ditch the civil engineers directed and built is about a foot from the street surface. Somehow, over there, water is believed to climb up the walls of the ditch and fall in.

Anyway, that ditch design has been bothering me for a while and I am glad I got it out.

Please don't waste your time arguing my post...it's just meant to be humorous (although what I stated is facts).

The cumulative federal budget deficit over five years will hit $155.9 billion

unemployment, currently at 8.4 per cent, will average 8.7 per cent this year, compared with Flaherty's estimate of 7.5 per cent for 2009. Page sees the jobless rate going as high as 9.4 per cent in 2010

worse-than-predicted employment picture means that actual total job losses in 2009 could go as high as 530,000 (Canada's population is just 33 million)

But Page says job losses next year could be as high as 700,000


Let us all CD's come together and share our thoughts so as not to be affected by this recession / gloomy forecast.

Peace by TK



Statistics are meant to be manipulated for/against our favor. Having said that, we all know the job market is extremely tight. For example, in the US, the latest figures are, around 15 million people are looking for work.

I think we will see a turnaround mid to late 2010 (just my 2 cent prediction). For people looking for work, it might be relatively easier to find if they expand the geographical preference to nationwide.

I know several individuals who lost their jobs in metro Detroit and Windsor continuing to seek opportunities in the same area. That is suicidal, in my opinion. Of course, they may be restricted to stay there for various reasons, but suicidal, nevertheless.

If economists are so smart, then why they didnt predict current recession in 2006 or 07?

Actually, they wont to fall in recession and always need some issue to keep their job continue.

BTW, the OP did not just talk about the job market but intentionally added some positive points of this country to misguide the people who are knew to this country or supposed to land here in future.

I tried to show you the clear picture (u people already know it but don't accept it because of our typical nature) which of course is hard to digest and that does not mean that we should start comparing it with any other country. So please make habit to accept what the reality is? Only argue if I say anything wrong.

There is a strong reason why exams like IIT-JEE don't allow students to use calculators until they enter into the engineering school.

Don't compare India and Canada. If u want to, then wait until Canada will have 1000 million people and then show me where your living standard will go.

Thanks

Web2000 - eagerly awaiting your response whether you left Canada because you didnot find any positives. If so, which country you went to?

I would like to give my 2 cent for 1000 million comment. It is highly unlikely that Canada will become 1000 million in the next 100 years. Moreover, in India, nobody else dumped 1000 million people into the country and asked us to deal with it. It is our own over population. Also, over population or population density does not mean living standards will go down. Example - Japan, singapore, hong kong.

Even our neighbour China has much better infrastructure with as big population as ours. Even we are developing. I read they allocated 1 lakh crores for infrastructure in our budget. India is developing, although it won't happen over night. It is going to take a few years or decades.

I have no desire of leaving Canada as I am making money here. But that does not change the reality what we got here. The truth will remain the same and I don't care if u agree or not.
The only difference between u and me is that I speak about the drawbacks and u just accept it. I still believe that telling the truth about this country will provide good guidance to new people.

For your knowledge, let me tell u that it is the no. of people which make difference not the density of population alone. Go to China and see the life of labor there.

In the future I will try to avoid any type of criticism as I judged your level of debate.

Sorry Web2000.
My positive points were more sarcastic than reality.
Every one (Except people in IT, Finance, Labourers and people who escaped India due to reservation, lack of clean air, pollution, corruption, unable to produce a baby) would agree that canada sucks in everything.
Immigration is a huge scam to bring people here and make them loose everything (Money, Professional skills etc...) and then to live a pay cheque- Paycheque life while providing for CPP/OAS/ Healthcare for senior citizens.
Some people find a loop hole to expliot the govt.. Other's bask in the glory of living in a great (but frozen land)

Anyways coming to my main point :
It is pointless to be staying in Canada if you canot get a good job and in your field. That is what the job numers and the futures jobs numbers show. they show that it will be very very tough for a new immigrant or a recent immigrant to find a job until 2011.
Choice is in our hands.

Peace by TK
