Top 8 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 them 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 with the country 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.

Top 8 Reasons NOT to Immigrate to Canada


8. Discriminatory and Dishonest Immigration System.
your wrong, my father was an engineer in hong kong and all he had to do was pass a professional exam in canada and now hes an engineer again, working in his own profession. dont stereotype. without a standard qualification, no matter what country u are from, how can people expect the same level of professionalism?

7. Out Of Control Cost Of Living.
cost of living in canada is expensive, but reflects on the quality of life we have. look at the homeless and poverty levels in canada compared to the countries immigrants come from, and see the difference.

6. Health Care Crisis.
sorry you are wrong again, i´ve never waited more than an hour in the hospital. i´ve also had multiple surgeries because of sports injuries and wow, im alive. what does that mean.

5. Very High Taxes.
this whopping amount goes to our free healthcare system that is ranked higher than the americans according to http://www.photius.com/rankings/world_health_systems.html
it also pays for free education, university subsizations (it is cheaper than americans to go to university)

4. Money Hungry Government.
they bring in 2.5 billion dollars a year, but the money is in their own pockets....noone took that money from them. do u think any country would want dirt poor immigrants to come and feed off the welfare system? no.

3. No Culture.
...the world is influenced by america. besides, have u realized that the reason we are like americans is that we have no history? we are what, not even 200 years old? other countries around the world all have long histories for their culture. 2nd, we pride on our multicultural diversity. our culture is one of many.

2. Worst Weather.
u do know that vancouver bc is consistantly in the top 5 cities to live in the world right? and russia isn´t cold? norway? any country along the same latitude as us is cold. complain somewhere else.

1. No Jobs.
just because u can´t find one doesn´t mean there´s no jobs. im a co-op student and im 20 and i found jobs easily. by the way not deliverying pizzas no, engineering jobs.

don´t hate when know nothing about canadians
