    Default Has anyone lived in Canada?

    Tell me your experiences!!! Is it hard to get a visa or residency?

    TIA

    I have, I lived in Newfoundland for a year. Great place. We don't know the meaning of the word cold.

    Their visa system is similar to ours really. It would depend on what visa you wanted really.

    Off topic - but research carefully as they have temporarily shut down the international midwifery qualifications bridging program, which basically means you wouldn't be able to work as a midwife in Canada.

    a number of Canadian friends who did their degree with me got caught at by this as they've spent $50,000+ on what is currently a useless degree.

    Oh thats terrible for them ! How heartbreaking what a waste of time/money.

    i did direct entry midwifery so don't think my degree is recognised in Canada anyway yet. :/ think I'd have to get some casual work in another field.

    My uni degree does exchange to a couple uni's in Canada, so I'm hoping this will aid my visa!! DF is a plumber

    Then I could complete my course externally, FX! Or over there

    Did you rent in Newfoundland? Was it expensive etc? My chiropractor told us to move there LOL. Thanks!!

    Everywhere is cheap compared with Australia. Nfld is very cheap - because it is sort of like Tassie. Cheap as chips - you won't even believe it. More expensive on the mainland - but nothing like Sydney, melbourne, perth etc.

    I am Canadian and lived in Vancouver for 12 years. Vancouver is expensive to live in but there are cities surrounding Vancouver that are less expensive. If you are under 31 you can get a two year working visa to Canada. There is a large population of ex-Aussies in Vancouver which is great for socialising and not feeling lonely.

    Vancouver has a similar feel as Melbourne and is a great place to live.
