advice on of its worth moving for a salary of $31000




hi,
After i received me landing papers i asked me company if i can move to Canada, They said yes you can but we can only pay you $31000 before tax.
I am in India and my present salary is 8.5lakhs.
I can either live in Montreal or Calgary or Toronto the choice is mine.
I have 6 years experience in IT.

I always wanted to live in a developed country for obvious reasons but india is not bad either.
I am presently single, what will i be able to afford in this what seems to be very bad salary in Canada.
(1)Will i be able to live a decent life.

Here in india i have a 2bhk flat on rent and a maruti zen car and i safe 10-15k a month and live a slightly higher middle class lifestyle..
(2) will i be able to do that in Canda.
(3) Should i take the offer and come.
(4)If yes where should i relocate.
(5) What other option should i think about
(6) Once i have worked here for a year or so and get local experience can i get jobs easily.

Please let me know your valuable advice

Thanks,
Chittesh

What is the meaning of 2 bhk? I guess it is 2 bed room. Then what is hk?

My suggestion would be to stay put where u r. Rs. 8 lakhs p/a is a very good salary. $31k is not worth to move to Canada. If u still want to move, keep trying for jobs from where u r.

this is crazy
what kind of a stupid company is this that is offering you only 31K in canada while they give you 8.5 lacs in india. Id say leave the damn company and find another.

There are no great 'laddoos' in canada and for someone like you, look at the future and see where india is going before you think about a stagnant economy like that of canada.

Id understand if you had a deadend job, like mine, but being in IT, you sure are crazy to even think about it. Dont go even for 91K unless its a great job and will add to your skillset

Mishra Jee, would you care to explain why you would call Canada a "stagnant economy"? I would like to hear facts and figures, not personal frustrations please.

It means they will "almost" pay you the same money after CAD-INR conversion which means you will do much better in India!

Is IT not a very broad term? What area do you specialize in?

Since you've received your landing papers, you (at least at some point) planned to move to Canada. So do you still want to move or not?

If you DO want to move, it may be better to accept this offer so that you have a job the day you land. But once you are here, the market is open for you, there's nothing stopping you from looking for better paying jobs, right? And if you already have a job in hand, then it makes looking for another one that much easier.

31K is certainly not a lot of money, but you don't need to be a rocket scientist to figure out that you're not going to stick with a job like that for long.

Are you there?

I have found that every time you move from one country to another you pretty much need to start from the bottom of the "food chain".
Regardless of the position and the salary you are making in one country, when you move to another, you have to re-establish yourself and your credibility.
