Easiest way, hands down, is to marry a Canadian. (What my wife did). Preferably one whom you have some interest in. Other family-class immigrants (children, parents etc of Canadians) get the same fast-track approval without going through the point-system assessment.

Canadian immigration policies have actually done dick-all to reduce unemployment which is almost always higher than in the U.S. Since the qualifications of a lot of highly-educated immigrants are not recognized in Canada, many of them are driving cabs, working in restaurants etc--can you say "cheap non-unionized labour pool"?

Canadian high-tech companies are, as elsewhere, desperate to attract and keep skilled employees, and if you have such skills (Particularly in software development and telecommunications) and some experience getting a job offer and a company to apply for your work visa won't be difficult.

Rumour has it they're thinking of rejigging the whole immigration-points system, but don't hold your breath.

I got into Australia using a points system.. my advice if you intend to do it (assuming it works the same for Canada)is to apply when you are young..... I was the main applicant... my hubby was an "attachment"... because I was between 25 -29 I got more extra points than him (he was an old man of 30!!) and for every 5 years you got older the points dropped rapidly....

we have the point system here too alison.

It helps if you have a lot of money and want to make capital investments, you can get fast tracked that way as well

We have a Count von Bothmer here (an American, not as the title suggests). Somehow he has managed not only to imigrate (despite rumors in the paper that he may have a bit of a criminal record), but is currently living in an old Heritage house in a very exclusive area of Victoria, which he has managed to lease from The Anglican Women's League for 99 years for a dollar a year and so far not paid any property taxes as well (charitable institution and all). Seems the Ladies leased it to him because he was such a polite and pleasant man. Currently, bit of a hoot and a scandle here.

Alison, my advise is to buy yourself a title or change your name legally to Lady Slainte of Oz. Could work wonders.

So how is it that in Canada and Australia you can get away with 'points' systems and in the United States we are expected to take everyone who wants to come in, whether legally or illegally? I'm not saying we do take them all, but the perception is that we are being somehow unfeeling and restrictive if we deny immigration and services, services, services to someone who wishes to come in no matter how they got here.

well you may think you're expected to take them ernest, but you don't. Your methods for dealing with illegals are certainly far more restrictive than Canada's, because it is usually dealt with by the military, especially here on the West Coast. Consequently recent boatloads from China are being dumped on the shore in B.C. and funneled into the States, that way.

You could come in as a refugee alison, especially if you claim you were scooped up for the sex trade in the U.S.

REPEATING, didn't say we take them all. It's just the perception that we should. Why don't these illegal Chinese immigrants stay in Canada then? Not looking for an argument, it's just an unanswerable question. It would seem that Canada would do just as well. So who does the funneling? Or why don't they stay in China, for that matter? Everyone knows the answer to that one, but it is 'politically incorrect' to voice it.

Getting back to becoming a Canadian. Many conversations here lately seem to be emphasizing the differences between Canadian and U. S. citizens. I prefer to think of the similarities. I like Canadians, at least the Canadians I know. I can't speak for the ones I don't know, so blanket statements about 'Canadians', 'Murricans', 'Mexicans', are pretty useless. If I were not happy here it would be my choice to go there, but it sounds as though I would not be welcomed with open arms. From speaking to Canadian friends over the years, I already knew that. So exclusion of those of the wrong color, age, employment skills, amount of MONEY, whatever, is a universal problem.

One last thing. If I were to go somewhere else, I would not spend my time complaining about how I would like to be back 'home'. That would then be home and I would treat it as such. While I could never become a native, I like to think I'd adapt in such a way that I would be an asset to the community I lived in.

Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor. It used to work, Catspaw, but I am not so sure it works anymore. Assimiliation or lack of it is the key problem.

kat, our current rates for our B.C. Med are $62.00 per month for a family of two. If you are very low income, the Medical is paid for by the government and half of medical is usually paid for by your employer, but if you are self employed you pay the whole shot.

Before you decide this is the land of milk and honey, remember that we are very heavily taxed. The Medical Premiums do not cover the cost of health care so the government gets it other ways.

Unfortunately, there has been a bit of migration of Canadian doctors to the states, particularly in recent years of specialists and recent graduates, as they can make big bucks down there and we the taxpayers of Canada are footing the bill for what it really pays to educate and train them.

In B.C., 31% of the population (1998 statistics) is now living below, what is termed, the poverty line, that is one of every three in the province and this Province is considered one of the rich ones and the gap between rich and poor is ever widening.

The average house price for a starter here in Victoria is in the range of $200,000 to $230,000 and is higher still in Vancouver. It drops fairly substantially as soon as you are out of major economic areas. (remember the Canadian dollar is valued at about 67 cents U.S.) but once here you are earning Canadian money.

Unfortunately, racism is alive and well in Canada (usually subtle) but not always.

My remarks on cheap labour were not meant to encourage immigra-phobia.

Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor Etc. has become a sour joke when you look at actual current U.S. immigration policies and trends--and assimilating was not exactly the approach your ancestors and mine took to the native civilization that was thriving on this continent when the Europeans got here. Quite the contrary

Carping about people retaining their culture and an interest in their homeland, however imperfect it may have been, is not something I have much patience with. We're here because of an interest in folk music, Ernie--for which the first requirement is that you have to know something about your folk.

Canadian immigration rules are a total disgrace and created by something out of Swift and Joseph Heller. I have highly qualified people who come into my office on a weekly basis who cannot find work -- their credentials got them into this country, but once they get in these credentials are not accepted. The refugee/political/family entry streams are so mixed up that no one can understand them. If you fall in love with someone in most foreign countries, and want to bring them in without marrying them, that is forbidden; but if you run a stripjoint in Toronto and want to ship in poor women from anywhere in the world to exploit them, you can do so. Many countries desperately need their college graduates to build their own infrastructure -- so we strip them of those people. And we complain about our own brain drain to the U.S. It is completely insane.
