What a wonderful site. This site has helped me so much. Now I understand that finding a job is not only a personal problem, but a social one too.

It’s about time someone made a web site like this. My wife and I have struggled to find a decent job suited to our professional backgrounds since arriving in Canada.

If I may make a suggestion; perhaps you could supply information based on the upcoming new proposed restrictions that will be placed on new immigrants after June of this year. After June, Canada plans to allow entry to immigrants only if they possess a “Masters” degree.

I live in Madrid, Spain. I was thinking about migrating to Canada. After reading about how hard it is to get a job there, I am reconsidering. Are things really that bad? I had heard here in Spain that Canada is a country where you are always treated fairly, and that it was quite easy to find a job there.

I am a businessman. I was planning on moving to Canada with my family from Brazil. My oldest son is a doctor and my oldest daughter is a teacher. Will there be jobs for my children when they arrive in Canada? And, will there be business opportunities for me as well?

After viewing your policies page on your web site, which has the information regarding the new “point system” for entry into Canada, I realize that I now cannot apply for coming to Canada. This has crushed a ten-year dream of mine. Please tell me whom I can complain to about this new system.

Hopefully someone from the British Columbia government will see your web site and begin an action plan to eradicate racism in the job market here in B.C.
