I know that I can do the job of an accountant, but many here in Vancouver are looking for the Canadian experience. I think my experience in the Philippines is more than enough to work here as an accountant. Please help.

I’d like to work in a country like Canada. It is a multicultural place that has opened its doors to foreigners. I also believe there are countless companies and corporations where one could find a suitable job with opportunities of development.

I am always asked for any Canadian experience.

I asked the recruiters back, are Canadians hard to deal with? Why do I need such, in fact if they are referring about the world class standard, I already have international certificates Moreover, I have been working with Australia, India and Asian customers. Now, as far as flexibility is concerned and versatility, my resume manifest it all. Nonetheless, I am very hopeful that I can land a job anytime soon. I don’t mind the location as long as I can also contribute for the success of the first employer who will hire me, I will owe this a lot to them. Thanks and More Power.

It seems that every company there in Canada is looking for the so called “Canadian experience”. I’m a dedicated worker and very much willing to work any kind of jobs that will commensurate my experience. My permanent resident application will be decided hopefully this year. Anybody there who needs a 12-yr experienced marine biologist?

I am a permanent resident in Spain since 1991 -totally documented. For nearly a year, I have been thinking to move to another country, but keep working in the hospitality sector. I have seen this subject on the internet, and it had caught my attention because Canada has always been in my heart – as well as it is to many Algerians. We love this country as if it were our own since Canada is like a huge heart full of affection, and that’s what we need.

Since I migrated to Canada, in the year 2000, I have been looking for a position as computer technician… I was lucky to get only one temporary position at Future Shop, which lasted just 6 months. I know I have the required qualifications and skills -not to mention the experience, but I think there isn’t any jobs out there in this field.

I have carefully read all of the cases exposed in this site, and honestly to see how Canadian employers abuse and mistreat immigrants made me fell powerless. Immigrants go to that country with their best intentions and the will of being successful. Canadian employers and authorities must be more humane and recognize that immigrants have benefited this country.

I started my visa application process a year ago, and I am still waiting for their answer; however, I consider myself as an immigrant. That’s why I’m part of both the problem and the solution that immigrants face. We must join forces so that we can change this situation -sometimes humiliating- that immigrants experience.

We are an incredible high qualified labor force willing to work hard… why not we create our own enterprises and job opportunities? Helping each other, so we don’t have to depend on Canadian employers??

Has anybody thought about it? The situation could be reversed, so at the end, immigrants would hire Canadians, and we won’t ask them for “local experience” 🙂

Due to the economic situation in my country, I am forced to attempt to immigrate to your country. That’s the way to improve my living standards and guarantee a bright future to my family. Thank you very much.
