His problem I'm presuming is that he can't get hired in his profession without the elusive "Canadian working experience" and he doesn't want to pass his time at Tim Horton's.carteki wrote:So you want to move to Canada - have applied for PR - but don't want to pack up and move over there? Can you not get a job directly in Canada with your qualifications? Surely that would be easier than finding Canadian companies in SG that may / may not want to transfer you to Canada?
You know, plenty of Canadian expats work for non-Canadian companies that operate both here and there...just because there are a number of us doesn't mean Canada is heavily invested in Singapore.djdre wrote:Hi, thanks for the comments. Poodlek was correct, migrating there for Tim hortons as a survival job would be soul (and dream) crushing.
When we do decide to land, the job search will have to begin. Just in the mean time, I've been scoping the Singapore landscape for Canadian companies but not that many big ones show up through searches. For banks, I've seen RBC, TD but seems like they're small operations and doesn't appear like much hiring going on. I've seen RIM (but certainly tough times ahead for them), Manulife and not much else, hence why I'm trying to find out more by starting this topic.
Yet on the other hand, there are big Canadian int'l schools, expat community, Canadian association - so what Canadian companies have a significant presence or are investing / growing in Singapore in a big way??
