Hi,

I work for McAfee and after getting PR, am trying to get internal transfer. McAfee is in Waterloo and hence the decision. My husband has already moved to waterloo and is searching for job, schools and house. And he has not been able to get a single indian acquaintance there :) not even to say hello. And when I saw this forum, thought this may help us.

Is life in canada really that difficult as portrayed by many ppl in websites?

Macafee
Just because you had a job in Macafee does not mean that you will get a job in Macafee, Waterloo. It just does not work that way.
I knew one Mr. Wilson (Desi) who used to work in Macafee in 2008. Donot know if he is still there.
If you are a Christian, I can introduce you to some Indian's (through the church).
At the peak of RIM boom, you just have to visit any waterloo park on a sunday and you will see tons of desi. playing with their children. They were all work permit holders of TCS working in RIM.
What I would suggest is that you stay in Toronto /Mississauga and see how the market is there in Waterloo. Waterloo is not that big to offer you a variety of jobs. Now that RIM is in trouble, hiring is very slow and there is no alternative jobs in Waterloo.
I knew of a UK Desi who was hired for a job in waterloo. He was laid off in a year. After that and till now (after 6 years) he is still working odd jobs.
Toronto (GTA) is a huge market and you should concentrate there.
Just my opinion.

One advise I impart to all immigrants.

Why not keep your eyes and ears open and be flexible to move wherever in the country you may find a job. Don't do the same mistake that most of the Desis commit. Land in GTA and stay there for sometime, and not Waterloo, where despite of it being called the Silicon Valley of Canada doesn't have abundance of IT jobs. If you stay in GTA, there are more chances of you getting a job in IT. As I said, while you're at it - keep your ears and eyes open to see if you may have to relocate to find a well paying job in your own field. This will provide you initial foothold and much needed (so freaking called) Canadian Experience. Once you will have worked for 2-3 years, move wherever you love to live with your professional equity.

My simple funda in life - move wherever (in Canada) the job is. Unemployment and sitting at home while mass sending the resume is one heck of a depressed thing. GTA is not the end of the world, and contrary to the popular belief, not at all the center of the universe.

Hi,
Thanks everyone for the replies. Yes, we do have GTA in our radar. We are provinicial nominees and can work only in Ontario.

TK - the UK desi, after having 1 year canadian experience, why didnt he move to GTA or wherever IT job is there? Is it something like, 1 year of canadian experience is of not much value? Sorry, my question may be naive, but it just crossed my mind. I am not a christian, but would be more than happy to get to know them.
