Subject: Immigrating to Canada as a Skilled Worker
 
Canadian Government is charging thousands and thousands of dollars (550 visa application + 550 as a permanent residency fee per adult) in the name of visa fees. Canadian Government giving foreign highly EDUCATED Man and Woman false hopes for a better future. Most of them have employment in their home country. It should be noted that one cannot qualify for this type of visa without any experience. Irony of this if you have more degrees or/and experience according to their point system you are more valuable to Canada. They are robbing people of their savings which is so hard to earn in undeveloped countries under the false hope. It?s one thing that you came to some country as a family or visitor and try to find a job here. But when whole system inviting you as a skilled worker and in return giving you no job security that?s a criminal act. In my view it?s a form of pyramid scheme. Someone should raise voice against this injustice.

TOO MUCH (in reply to: Immigrating to Canada as a Skilled Worker)
may I tell you that it costs the government of Canada far more money than $550 plus your ROLF to process YOUR REQUEST to come to Canada. What does it cost to apply to other countries? None are free and none promise a job. Canada does not ask you what colour you are, what religion you are or what politics you are. What more do you want? Nobody forces you to come her so if the system and cost is too much, do not come. It will make the line shorter for those who think it is a reasonable opportunity for the cost.

I totally agree with Sharon. I myself a new canadian PR. It sickens me when I see people complaining (including canadians) rather than making it work. Sure Canada is not perfect. I see people abuse the system, come to Canada under false pretention and rack up taxpayers money. We all are the slaves to our own dreams. So if you think your spending that much money and coming here is not worth it, dream something else.

Maria:

I understand your frustration. However, the benefits of living in Canada may not appear immediately. You may find it hard to secure employment. However, one must keep their options open to getting further training or obtaining additional skill sets. It is a place where you can get quality education at subsidized price. You may have wanting to do an MBA or MS. The only way one can be successful in any new place is by adapting.

If you expect to keep same type of lifestyle as your home country; well I have an eye opener - countries such as Canada may not be the country for you. I´m sorry to come out so bluntly but; there is a way things work here and you must adapt. Furthermore it is more than likely that unless you are very highly skilled professional - you will have to take a form of education, training or internship before you can really begin working as you might expect.

There is no scam. Who said immigrant life is easy? Then don´t you move in your own country? Is that easy? Plus for some people it is more then them. It is an opportunity of quality life for their family and children. If you have seen the kind of facilities at school and University level are available in countries like Canada and the U.S. you will realize that immigrating to Canada to provide this kind of education for your children is reward enough. Look at the rewards;

1) People spend up to 40-50,000 US$ to send their children to educate in good U.S. Universities. As a Canadian at least in Canada you will get that comparable education at almost a fraction. If you talk about 10000 Canadian dollars as lifetime income - what will you call 40-50,000 US?

2) Quality Medical

3) Unrestricted travel to almost all countries as a result of becoming a Canadian Citizen. Coming from a country where you need visa to travel to every country - how can you even price such a benefit?

There may be 100 other benefits that may not be my priority that I may be missing. I feel your opinion is of little consequence to a majority who see only benefits to immigrating to Canada.

Btw...most western european countries don´t charge a thing to process immigration. But ,that been said,I still think that the Canadian immigration system might be the fairest and most objective system in the world.
I myself come from a country having a higher average income p.c. and probably a better social system and medical care than Canada, so those things aren´t obviously my main reasons to move.
Maria has a point though in suggesting that the Canadian immigration system isn´t transparant for a lot of people.
And allthough I know it´s easier said than done, it should be possible to let people know after a couple of months allready weather they qualify or not.Don´t forget that most of us need some sort of timeframe to close up things in their home country and start prepairing their new life over there, and without knowing if it could take months or years or even knowing if one qualifies, those things are very hard to do.
( just my 2 cents )

WHO ARE YOU to define a criminal act?
What pyramid scheme are you talking about?

YOU CHOSE to go to Canada, a country that welcomed you (and your family, if applicable). It´s also your choice to leave it if it didn´t fulfill your -apparently- high expectations.

Your complaining will not help anyone here.

For me Immigrating to Canada as a Skilled Worker is my best option to provide a better future for my family. I know its not easy but my current situation gives me no option.

Its sad my own country can´t provided me a quality life as we all want to have. But thankful some other country does.

I´m hoping and wishing that my application to Canada will be granted soon.

A promising future to all

$450US per application - its very high indeed.
In my country there are families which can live half a year with such money!

The problem is that the fee is too high. Why do they charge it?

If the only idea is to get a skilled worker, that person will start his/her work in Canada and pay nice taxes, so Canada will have benefit right from that.

On the other case, if they are cheating, then its a very nice way to grab really big bucks!

Just a notice.
