About suggestion to Calgary...by bambooson
This is the same in Canada. I am living at Edmonton, I feel it is very peaceful and convenient. Big cities means higher living cost.
yes, you really got the key point. I had been some big cities in Canada, Now I like Edmonton more. Here you will feel the people is so nice to new commers.
Many choices you will know after you come, such as specially training classes by goverment (with fanicial
support, 1-1.5 year). If you want to go to university again, U of Alberta is not bad.
This year, Alberta (Calary and Edmonton) got a 4% increase rate, it is top in Canada. You can find so many
places are hiring new staff here. About the wether, the feeling is much much better than in Beijing. Except Vancouver, all of cities in Canada have no big difference. Actually, everywhere is heated in winter, you just need a shirt in room and a coat in outside.
It is rich or poor is not our concerns.What we need is a stable job and a peaceful place. Actually, Alberta is richest province in Canada because of its oil and gas industry. About the agriculture, yes, Canada is very of agriculture comparing to New York, but it really doesn't matter because the concept is too different with that in China. Agriculture is a special kind of industry, like food manufactures,mechanics... Only 3% population is in agriculture in Canada!
Yes, in the first 2 years, the life is quite hard. Then, I am sure it will be better and enjoy. The salary have not so big different, but the housing has a very big different. See, in Edmonton, rental for a nice two bedroom apartment is 400-550. How much it is in Toronton? Maybe double, but the salary is not double in Toronton, right.
About job opportunties, let's think it. Toronton's population is about 300 Wan, Edmonton is about 80 wan.
We can think the positions in Toronton is 4 times of that in Edmonton. But how many new immigrants are looking for their first job? More than 10 times than in Edmonton. This is means the possibility is less.
Here, I know, many emploiyee can't find a people to fill the job, in Toronton, a job of Pizza Hut will have 30 competitors. Here it is too too easy to find such a job.
By the way, the living cost of Calary is increasing quite big than Edmonton.
Sorry, I can only type in English.＜本文发表于: 相约加拿大:枫下论坛 www.rolia.net/f ＞
