How difficult is it to live in Canada as an immigrant?
On a final note, you have to realize that unless you have people already living in Canada or have some Canadian working experience, you will find it difficult. I will suggest you carry out a thorough financial projection of the living standard of the area you are moving to in Canada. How long will it take you to secure decent employment considering the fact that you’re new in the environment? Typically, you should be looking at a year before you get your footing.
To be candid, what you need most when you move to a new country is connections. You also are willing to take up menial job options no matter your level of professional qualifications.
Note that this has nothing to do with the province you settled. The fact is no province is easy to immigrate in Canada.
You should also note that Canada is one of the countries with the highest level of literacy in the world; hence your bachelor degree may not give you an advantage. In fact, Canada is ranked by OECD as only second to Russia in term of countries with highly educated people. There is at least a university/college in virtually every town in Canada. No matter how qualified you are, you may have to stand in line to look for a job. This is so because there is no shortage of highly qualified, very intelligent Canadian native/educated to take those positions.
Yes, Canada provides free health care, school education, and university education. But the truth is nothing is free as people had to pay for all these through direct and some hidden taxes. About 50 cent from every dollar earned by citizens goes to maintain, service and pay for this comfort.
Virtually almost all profession in Canada is seriously controlled which makes it difficult for someone not in the system to easily break in. As a result, new immigrants can only find jobs in the low end of the service industry, as security guards, someone who flips hamburgers, pour coffee, and probably pump gas.
In summary, Canada is a fantastic country for immigrants, but you must be prepared for the psychological and socio-economic challenges ahead. I have seen people who came to Canada with the hope of settling but had to leave because they couldn’t cope with initial challenges. The good news is these people are rarely Nigerians. As Nigerians, it is believed we can survive anywhere no matter the circumstances.
