Bie, what's the problem? Canadian PR application forms are very cleared detailed with guidelines. Exactly which forms you need if you have dependents, exact payment to make to which bank, etc.

Maybe that's a good reason not to help or give her contacts. Not sure that's the kind of immigrants Canada is looking for. :???:

Out of curiosity, for those who have expressed desire to migrate to Canada, what is your motivation behind picking Canada as the country of choice?

It is my utmost humble opinion that any First World is definitely better than a Third-World that does not appreciate ME. My homeland is interested ONLY in my ancestral line, NOT in me :sad:
Like all the disenchanted youths of the world, I complained, but I also acted in defiance. I left.
My beloved nation still doesn't care about its brain drain...

Besides, Canada is a big country with insufficient headcounts :P:twisted:

I applied on my own, spending only on the application fee, and nothing else. Absolutely no need for consultants.

It's for the best I think. My perceptions on where I see myself in 5-10 years are evolving further and further away from Toronto. One day it might just snap clean :twisted:

well there might be, apply from a different area. but limited to people living in a location other than their country of origin. i.e. if you are in canada atm and you want to apply for residence, your nearest embassy will be buffalo, NY.

apart from that you're required to apply through the canadian consulate at your country of origin

I currently live in Toronto. I can assure you that while there is gun related activity it is hardly a "gun war".

I have never seen a gun in Toronto (other than on a police officer's hip) or heard a gun shot.

It may not be as safe a Singapore, but few places are.
