  TOP EIGHT REASONS NOT TO IMMIGRATE TO CANADA



8. Discriminatory and Dishonest Immigration System.
Immigration to Canada is based on a point system, obtained with your education, qualifications and job experience. Points are good enough for immigration, but in Canada, they are not good enough to get a job in your field. Amazing, how the credentials that qualify you to come to Canada are the same credentials that don´t qualify you for your profession in Canada. The reason is, Canada only wants immigrants to do the labor jobs - pizza delivery, driving taxis, factory work etc.

7. Out Of Control Cost Of Living.
From rent, to utility bills, to shopping, to phone, internet and cable bills, to gas, to car insurance, to eating out, to basically anything you have to pay for or buy, the cost of living in Canada has become astronomical. Recent immigrants are astonished as to how expensive everything is. It is estimated that compared to most countries around the world, the cost of living in Canada is on average five times greater.

6. Health Care Crisis.
Practicing physicians in Canada are in a shortage, 1 in 4 Canadians cannot get a family doctor. Canadian doctors are leaving to move permanently to the United States. Statistics Canada and the Canadian Medical Association both have identified that for every 1 American doctor that moves to Canada, 19 (nineteen) Canadian doctors move to the United States! Doctors in Canada are overworked and underpaid, and there is a cap on their salaries.

5. Very High Taxes.
Yes, you have the GST, the PST, totaling 15%, on practically everything you purchase and many other taxes taken out of our weekly paycheck. You have to pay a whopping amount to the government, out of your hard earned salary, so that the government can turn around and give it to beer drinking, hockey watching welfare bums. Fair? It does not matter, it´s Canada.

4. Money Hungry Government.
Canadian Embassies around the world lie to foreigners, painting this picture that Canada is Utopia, because they want foreigners to come to Canada. Why? Because foreigners bring money! So after being deceived, these foreigners come. They must bring with them at least $10,000. Canada has an immigration quota of 250,000 per year. So please do the math, 250,000 multiplied by $10,000 each equals a whopping 2.5 Billion dollars that Canada gains from immigrants every year.

3. No Culture.
Unlike almost every other country in the world, Canada has no culture. Actually American culture is what dominates Canada. When was the last time you had some ´Canadian´ food? There are no Canadian traditions and there is no national identity. What does it even mean to call yourself a ´Canadian´. . .nothing really. People living in Canada, still identify themselves as to where they ´originally´ came from.

2. Worst Weather.
Yes, Canada has the worst weather conditions of any country in the world. Freezing cold temperatures, snow, ice, hail, winds, storms etc. From the Prairie provinces to the Maritimes, from the Territories to southern Ontario, the weather is so horrific and disgusting that many Canadians leave Canada simply because of this reason alone.

1. No Jobs.
Yes, coast to coast, there are no jobs. Immigrants are highly qualified (MD´s, PhD´s, Lawyers, Engineers etc.) but they are driving taxi cabs, delivering pizza´s or working in factories. Even people with bachelors degrees from Canadian Universities cannot find jobs after graduation. This is the tragedy associated with immigration to Canada. I feel sorry for those immigrants who are stuck in Canada for the rest of their lives. It is indeed a very sad and hopeless future.

(in reply to: TOP EIGHT REASONS NOT TO IMMIGRATE TO CANADA)
wow! dude thats awesome watever you wrote but are you in canada? and ya lemme tell you somthin...people here whoever tryin to migrate to canada are trying to find a life better than wat they have in ther own countries...atleast I do...if you are asian or african..every country insults you so much at the airports...you have to show all kind of bullshit documents to just visit europe or USA or canada. The money which you get by driving cabs and delivering pizza is almost the same as what you get being an engineer in asia or africa. And ya about weather and discrimination and stuff dude discrimination is everywher and countries like US and UK and few other developed countries dont even give you visit visa easily. I am in US right now and I know wat discrimination means but you go to such countries living ur people and friends back becoz money matters and atleast canada is giving you chance to come to ther countries. Anyways I have seen many people who are presently in canada write in this forum not to migrate to canada then tell me which country shud we migrate to? no country has welcomed visitors from asia and africa. They just think we are cheap and we will spoil ther country by just visiting. watever dude thanx for the info but I guess let everyone try it coz everyone know ther conditions

I live in the USA right now, I am a born Canadian citizen. I believe that in one city alone in the USA has a higher cost of living than ALL OF CANADA!!!! Alot of you refer to it as the 24 7 party called Las Vegas. Yeah sure it is nice to visit BUT to live here is another story. I am pretty sure there are alot of Cities here in the USA that are the same as Las Vegas but I am speaking from personal experience that you can not live here on one paycheck alone. In the USA there are not many ways to get medical coverage like they have in Canada. I now appreciate what Canada has to offer I think that you need to pull the spur out from under your saddle and get over it. Canada offers an excellent lifestyle... and about the weather I would rather freeze my butt off than sweat and pay the AC bill!!!!

I worked in the San Francisco Bay area under a TN Visa. The cost of living was WAY higher than even Toronto.

Then all the Yanks would say that we pay sooo much tax, but when you look at California´s state taxes (highest next to NY I think) they were very comparable to Ontario.

A three bedroom house in Redwood City was going for like $800,000 in Palo Alto $1,500,000.

But, hands down, the weather there was better than any place in Canada.

Who knows where this idiot is from... he probably got deported and is upset....

This makes me mad. I´m a Canadian citizen, presently living temporarily in the US with my American husband, waiting for his papers so we can move to BC. There´s no place like Canada, and for this we should be grateful!

Everything this poster says is a lie. Yes, you are taxed less here but this is a country where everyone is out for himself/herself. I´m sick of knowing personally, and learning about, tragedies to families for lack of social services or health care, and the availability of guns. And millions live one serious illness away from bankrupcy because they can´t afford health care. I pay, just for myself, 300 dollars (Canadian) per month - and I´m not covered for everything either, plus I pay 30 dollars for just saying hello to the doctor - called "copay" - and have a 2500.00 dollar deductible.

And I won´t even go into politics...

Just go away.
