    CRS Score

    Hi guys; sharing this update to those who are trying to increase their CRS scores. An extra points can be added if you have siblings (citizen or pr) or fluency in french. See link below. https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration...pring2017.html

    When my husband and I were immigrating to Canada, I used help of the lawyers from the GKlaw firm. They filed our immigration papers so quickly and within 6 months we had all the documents. When it came to buying our home, we also used their help. For your conveniene, here is the link - gklaw.ca . Maybe you'll find it useful too!

    Hi guys, need your advice. I submitted PNP applications to NB and PEI this year but no response so far, I'm thinking of retaking IELTS.

    Would you know any center in Manila that has affordable IELTS writing workshops? I had my exam last Feb and scores for the rest were good, except for writing at 6.0 Not even enough for OINP. If I got a 7.0 or 7.5 I'd be at 440~ and looking at the current trend, I'd have a high chance being invited by the IIRC with this score even without any PNP.

    Do you know any centers in Manila or online tutors that would help improve my writing scores or even just assess my sample written tests for a fee? TIA!

    Have you tried looking at free sample tests online? My relative improved their writing from 6.0 to 7.0 just by reading the samples.

    Question

    Hello! Questions po ulit, medyo nasa 90% na kami na parang mas prefer namin ang Canada than Australia. But I'm still doing research just to be sure. Syempre andito na kasi kami sa stage na we wanted to start day 1 before the month ends. Pero may naririnig din kaming mga not-so-good reasons to immigrate to Canada. Para sa mga nandyan na, eto ang mga tanong ko:

    1. How true is it na mahirap or kadali maghanap ng work? Totoo ba na may mga Pinoy daw na bigla nalang naglaho (yun kasi term na sinabi) upon arrival dyan kasi hindi alam paano mag uumpisa? May mga kakilala ba kayong ganun?

    2. What are your tips kapag approved na ang PR, like magkano ang dadalahin na amount, paano makakakuha ng tirahan, assuming na walang kakilala dun at from scratch tas parehas kayong walang alam

    3. Sa pagpili ng work, sabi nila wag dapat choosy, most kasi that I've read online, sinasabi na if you are not earning a XXX amount per annum in your country, saka ka lang mag migrate, syempre kung sa Pinas, mababa lagi. Ang question ko talaga is, madalas ba ang layoff dyan? (based only on what I have read). Nung time niyo, gaano kayo katagal nakahanap ng work? (assuming hindi via employer ang program nyo)

    4. Some say Canada is one of the "friendliest" countries. In your own words, how "friendly" or at least non-discriminating are the people around you?

    5. Is it worth leaving everything here? Paki explain.

    depends on the industry na gusto mo pasukan and of course sa location.


    2. What are your tips kapag approved na ang PR, like magkano ang dadalahin na amount, paano makakakuha ng tirahan, assuming na walang kakilala dun at from scratch tas parehas kayong walang alam

    merong chart sa CIC website kung magkano ang dapat na dalhin based sa size ng family. we brought more than what is required, pero nag-iwan pa din ako sa Pinas. para kung by retirement time gusto ko pala sa Pinas mag retire, at least may pera na dun di na problema ang pag-transfer ng pera.

    kung walang kakilala, i suggest browse kijiji.ca and look for apartments for rent habang nasa Pinas pa, para pagdating ng Canada may matutuluyan na. average rent is 1k per month, pero depende pa din sa location.


    3. Sa pagpili ng work, sabi nila wag dapat choosy, most kasi that I've read online, sinasabi na if you are not earning a XXX amount per annum in your country, saka ka lang mag migrate, syempre kung sa Pinas, mababa lagi. Ang question ko talaga is, madalas ba ang layoff dyan? (based only on what I have read). Nung time niyo, gaano kayo katagal nakahanap ng work? (assuming hindi via employer ang program nyo)
    im earning almost 6digits sa Pinas pero we still decided to migrate. layoff depends sa industry and location. kung sa oil industry and alberta location, based sa news madami ang layoff. in 1month nakakuha ako ng work as overnight stocker sa walmart, pero 3months lang ang tinagal ko. di ko kaya overnight manual labor. after quitting, it took me 7months para makapasok as service desk analyst. mas lamang pa salary ko as service desk analyst kesa sa iniwan ko na work sa Pinas, pero syempre its a blind comparison kung salary and conversion lang ang basis. kelangan din i-consider ang cost of living.


    4. Some say Canada is one of the "friendliest" countries. In your own words, how "friendly" or at least non-discriminating are the people around you?
    in my opinion, because of the diverse environment and so many cultures kaya naging friendly ang canada. you dont want to be hostile sa hindi mo kalahi / ibang kultura, and the same for them kaya end result, everyone is friendly. on public transpo - we say good morning / afternoon / evening / have great day / great weekend sa bus driver. sa office - how are you / hows your week / nice weather eh? blah blah blah. and of course kapag may nakakasalamuha na Pinoy, automatic smile and speak in tagalog (for me at least).


    5. Is it worth leaving everything here? Paki explain.
    it is!!! our simple reason - for the kids. kung selfish kami ng wife ko, stay put na lang kami sa Pinas at least kami stable na. pero yung mga kids, hindi namin alam kung pagdating ng time na kelangan nila magwork eh makukuha din nila yung narating namin. kaya we decided to go to Canada para mas may fair chance sila na mag succeed.

    other things to consider -
    free education (not totally free) - at least yung tax mo napunta sa education expenses ng kids. sa college / university ka na mamroblema ng tuition.

    free health consultation - walang PF ang doctors, yung kids ko eye exam, vaccines libre. kung may medicines man na kelangan, covered ng health insurance ng work. dental covered din.

    free parks - lakad lang ng konti may free park na malawak! with playground / swing / slides etc etc

    child tax benefit - your kids will get an amount from the government deposited directly to your account until the child turns 16 or 18(i forgot)

    education savings plan - the government will match upto a certain dollar yung hinuhulog mo for education ng kids

    public transpo is very good (depends on location) - kahit wala kami sasakyan and hindi kami marunong mag drive, nakakagala kami kasi smooth ang public transpo. all you need is google maps and the rest OK na. may tax credits din kapag nagamit ng public transpo.

    friendly environment - walang tambay , walang bastos , walang nag-iinuman sa kanto , bihira ang nagyoyosi

    kung full time work, automatic may health benefits, overtime pay etc etc. dito sa work ko, above 40hrs is considered overtime and ang rate is time-and-a-half. so kung ang rate mo sa 40hrs is 12per hr, above 40hrs ang rate mo na is 18per hr. instead of looking for a 2nd job, nag-oovertime na lang ako at least kontrolado ko oras ko.

    tax filing is so easy! for 2 years, ako lang nagfafile ng taxes namin via software. di na kelangan ng accountant blahblahblah.

    bike friendly (depends sa location) - bike to work lang ako kapag summer. so in few weeks im gonna go biking again, tipid din sa pamasahe 130cad per month! sa Pinas bike to work din ako from laspinas to taguig kaso buwis buhay, amoy usok pagdating opis. dito safe ang biking and fresh pa din kapag dating sa opis. i bought my bike here, naiwan yung bike ko sa Pinas. the bike shops are friendly, the mechanics are friendly. because of bike to work, break even na ako sa bike. as if i got the bike for free dahil sa tipid sa pamasahe.

    you wont get hungry here. kahit minimum wage earner, you can eat and you wont get hungry.

    Hi everyone, just wanted to ask sana... Once your application for residency gets approved and you receive your visa, how long do they give you to go to Canada? Do you have to land in Canada within a month, 2 months, etc.?

    Thanks in advance for any info!

  12. #5912
    @lordhades inaabangan ko talaga post mo kung kumusta na. *** AINP kasi na april hindi na tumuloy dito, sa HK na interview ng mga employers at iilan lang ang NOC na required nila. Balitaan mo kami kung maganda sa NB ha.

    Same experience with kijiji, but got lucky with Airbnb.

    Tinanggap na namin na we'll have to book with Airbnb nalang muna kahit mahal since wala na kaming mahanap na iba. But yung nakausap namin na owner ng property offered us the place for a much lower (non-Airbnb) rates since we will be booking for more than 30 days.

    Yes, what lordhades said, it's either 1 year from the date of the medical exam, or the expiry of your passport, whichever is earlier.

    However, all you need to do to keep your PR status is to stay in Canada for 730 days (accumulated, not continuous) within 5 years. Meaning, there's no set period to stay when you land for the first time.

    Question lang po regarding sa work experience thru express entry na application.

    Yung certificate of employment po kasi dito sa pilipinas usually po di'ba ang content po, COMPANY NAME,LENGHT, POSITION then sign po ng HR Manager.

    QUESTIONS PO:

    1.Do I need pa po to have payslips as proof of this work? If wala na po yung paslips, kelangan po ba naka-state sa COE yung amount ng salary?

    2. Kelangan pa po bang mag-provide ng job description from previous employer na dapat din po na naka-state sa COE?

    3. If both mentioned questions ay kelangan, pwede po bang sa previous area manager nalang ipapirma instead sa HR? Will it be okay po na mag- result po na dalawa ang ipapasa under work experience with different signatures?

    Thank you po.

    Hello po. Ask ko lang po *** about sa WES kung ano meaning nung "Name of Certificate/Diploma". Ang ilalagay ko po ba don is college transcript tapos add ng isa pang Credential for college diploma? Kasi *** lumalabas sa auto fill parang mga courses. If ever *** course ang ilalagay, Bachelor in Information Technology ang nakalagay dun. Bachelor of Science in Information Technology *** nakalagay sa diploma ko. Ano po dapat gamitin ko?

    Curious ako, can you give examples of cons? Yung mga pros kasi ang laging nababanggit sa mga forums. Para lang balanced and mas realistic

    actually may nabasa ako sa canadavisa forum na story ng pinoy na medyo well off na kinikita dito sa pinas and after 4 months they decided to go back here in the Philippines. di raw totoo na may shortage ng skilled jobs sa Canada, laborer ang need daw doon..

    Medyo nalungkot ako nung nabasa ko to dati, pero I still decided to pursue and have a better quality of life in Canada (super hopeful) because I deserve it... We all deserve to have better life, but you know success is relative and so is contentment.

    For me, Its all up to you kung magiging masaya ka and gano ka mo paghihirapan mapanginhawa ang buhay mo with your family san man bansa ang titirhan mo.
