They work menial retail, there’s no way immigration will let them in, right? That’s if they can even save the money (doubt.) I feel sorry for all of us North Americans tbh.

No. 986799

Canada wouldn’t let them in unless they work desirable jobs or if they’re married to a Canadian (marriage is hard because your partner has to support you on 40k+).

No. 986807

Yeah as other anon said its pretty tough getting in anyway and typically immigration looks for high skill workers. It is not as great as they think it is here whatsoever. Economically we are in a similar boat, though I would argue we are even worse because homes are unaffordable and everything is expensive (even moreso than in the USA). I would switch places with them kek.

No. 986812

The home affordability in America is certainly not as bad as Canada right now. I live somewhere homes are barely over 200k and it’s a large city. The US is so vast, you can just move to a different state and get a different experience tbh. There’s some federal fuckery you’ll never escape of course, but some areas are extremely better than others. They just don’t tend to make the news. What do you guys think will happen to Canada in the near future? Are people saying the economy might crash or something?

Influx of temporary unskilled and semi-skilled workers. Many people preferred hiring Poles because they'd work for extremely low wages and in bad, if not illegal conditions, not a living wage for a British worker, but the money could go much further in Poland ofc, where money is sent back to family. If anyone spoke out about the system and the need for reform (for Brits and Poles sake), they'd gaslight and try to twist it as it bigots being anti-Pole, which in the majority of cases was nonsense.

Canada is advertised heavily in China and India. Ontario has a new scheme where to save their failing college system they import tons of international students mostly from India who pay higher fees and in exchange they can apply for PR status after working for 1 year after they graduate. A lot of these students are told lies about Canadian life by recruiters in India and when they get here they regret it because they have to be roommates with 7 other international students and get exploited by their employers at minimum wage jobs. They can't go back because their family in India used up their life savings to send them here. And in the end not all of them get PR status. It's also bad for Canada because these international students just pick random college courses they don't give a shit about like hotel management just to get into the PR scheme. A lot of them can't speak English well enough and cheat and the college administrations force professors to lower standards and pass them. It ruins the experience for domestic students and makes Canadian education look like a joke on the world stage. I've heard that there are institutions like grad schools in the US who immediately throw away resumes from people who went to Canadian universities because they think Canadian education sucks. Now this college cash cow situation is going to make that worse.

You have to call first thing in the morning and wait on the line for over an hour to maybe get a call back later that day or be told there all full and to call back the next day. And they don't see you in person anymore cause of covid so everything is over the phone. I had to get a broken knuckle "checked" over the phone so I had to describe the look of it to some rude scrote doctor that I could barely hear over the multitude of other doctors making their calls in the same room as him. When Americans use our healthcare as an example of a "good" system I wanna wring their neck. Canada is a fucking joke at this point, I can't wait to get out of here.

I believe the abuse, but resulting in death? I find this pretty convincing. Sorry, I know it's long. On Kamloops.

>To account for the 200 graves, there is no need to assume the high annual death rates put forward in Jeff Rosenthal's study, certainly not one out of twenty pupils.

>The school had no deaths at all during its first nine years. For the next fourteen years, it had an annual death rate of 1.34%—in line with the annual death rate of Canadian Indigenous people at that time. The gap between the school’s death rate and the Canadian average then widened. First, the school’s death rate may have risen to 1.7% because of the growth in enrolment and a corresponding growth in opportunities for infection. Second, and more importantly, the Canadian death rate fell dramatically during the early to mid-twentieth century. The gap then narrowed after the 1940s with the introduction of streptomycin and other antibiotics.
>To reduce the school's death rate to a level below that of the pupils' home communities, the school would have had to impose medical screening on incoming students, particularly for tuberculosis and other respiratory diseases. This was one of Peter Bryce's recommendations. However, a reliable test for latent TB would not be developed until the 1940s. Bryce also recommended increased ventilation of the dormitories, but that measure would have been possible only in summer. At that time, the most effective measures against TB were preventive: regular hand washing, daily bathing, no spitting, etc. Those measures took decades to inculcate into Euro-Canadians, and it would have taken just as long to incorporate them into Indigenous culture.
>Yes, there was a vaccine against TB, but it did not enter widespread use until the late 1920s and did not prevent primary tuberculosis infection. In hindsight, the best preventive measure would have been to cap school enrolment at thirty pupils, in order to reduce the number of possible hosts for TB and other infectious pathogens.
>The Kamloops Indian Residential School was not a death camp. The risk of death was about the same there as in the pupils' home communities. Nor was there a "mass grave." The burials took place over the eight decades of the school’s existence. The “unmarked graves” originally had wooden markers, which decomposed and disappeared over the years. The graveyard itself was abandoned with the closure of the school in 1969.
>The residential school system was wrong but it was wrong for other reasons.

What do you all make of Carrie Bourassa?
> For decades, Bourassa has identified herself as Métis — a group recognized as one of Canada’s aboriginal peoples, along with First Nations and Inuit. She also claims some traces of Tlingit and Anishinaabe heritage in her background.
> Bourassa was one of the most important indigenous health experts in Canada. In addition to her teaching position at the University of Saskatchewan, she was scientific director of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research Institute of Indigenous Peoples’ Health, a federal agency that helps distribute millions of dollars in grants for indigenous health research in Canada.
> “When I was very young, I knew I was not a Caucasian person,I knew there was something very different about me.”
> In a 2019 Tedx Talk, Bourassa wore a blue woven cloak and held a feather as she introduced herself as Morning Star Bear, a spirit name translated from the Tlingit language. She said she grew up in a dysfunctional family that struggled with alcoholism and violence in the western Canadian city of Regina. Her only saving grace was the Métis grandfather she called “gramps,” who took her on excursions to tan hides, pick berries and gave her moccasins and mukluks
> In her personal narrative, Bourassa has long credited Clifford LaRocque, a Métis elder, long deceased, with helping her identify with the group when she was in her early 20s. She said LaRocque adopted her after he claimed to have researched her ancestry in 2002.
> “He did his due diligence. He didn’t just give me a Métis card,” she said in an interview with the Saskatoon StarPhoenix just a few days after the CBC News exposé was originally published. Larocque died in 2018, and this “due diligence” has yet to materialize.
> Family photographs tell a different story. Bourassa is pictured as a little girl with her white maternal grandparents, Ladislav and Gertrude Knezacek. Ladislav, who was born in Saskatchewan in 1928, his family originated in Hungary, and Ladislav appears nothing like the Métis “gramps” Bourassa describes in her speeches.
> a recent report by Canada’s national broadcaster, the CBC, raised serious questions about Bourassa’s heritage, the University of Saskatchewan announced last month that it had placed her on paid leave while it conducts a sweeping independent investigation into her origins.
> both CBC News and the New York Post traced her family ancestry to Eastern Europe, and her own colleagues have investigated with similar results. As Winona Wheeler, an associate professor of Indigenous studies at U of S told CBC News in October, “There was nowhere in that family tree where there was any Indigenous person.”

I think it would depend on where you lived in Canada, but when I came to the USA I noticed a lot of differences in terms of things being convenient/available all the time. Like you can go to pretty much anything on a Sunday. It might just be coincidence but I also barely ever get ID'd in the states compared to in Canada. In hindsight weirdly I think Canadian fast food was actually better, I don't get takeout a lot in either place but Taco Bell was for sure better in Canada, so many more options. Other than that things are mostly pretty similar, the biggest difference is of course healthcare and stuff but that's going to be so variable depending on what your insurance is like in the states.

Canada is fine. It seems like Canada sucks because people who hate it here are the ones who usually post. Pretty common thing everywhere. I think that where you live, where you work, and who you hang out greatly influences how you feel about where you live. If you can get a good job that pays well above minimum wage and has decent benefits, you should have a decent life. Personally I wouldn't live in Calgary because I don't like smaller cities and their weather, but I hear it is a cheaper city to live in compared to Toronto or Vancouver. If you like winter sports, you would definitely like Calgary.

SF, but also if you want an IT job, you might want to consider Toronto instead since it is the biggest city with the most tech/IT jobs. You'd have a better chance of getting a job in Toronto than others.

I would recommend Alberta for immigrants because housing is still affordable there and demand for tech jobs in Calgary and Edmonton has been increasing recently. Ontario and BC are having really bad housing crises including for rentals so I would avoid them until that gets solved.

Calgary should be good mainly because its still affordable. most jobs are in toronto but its so expensive here, you have to be ready with money bags to buy a house.

Thank you!!

Yeah that's mostly why I prefer to not go into these options. Would probably choose Vancouver if not the fact that it's so expensive. I just want to have stability + 'salary : real estate prices' situation in Calgary looks way better than the one in my country so it gives me some vision of the future.

Re: Quebec
What is their end goal? For France to take them back? What does France even think of Quebec? Do they want to be an independent country? Do they just want Canada as a whole to be more French like them?

No. 997022

Franco-Anglo tensions has been a huge theme throughout Canadian history. Many in Quebec see themselves as part of a distinct society and want the ability to self-govern. They have had two referendums to vote on leaving Canada, the latter of which nearly passed with ~51% voting no and ~49% yes. They were also the only province that never agreed to sign the constitution after Pierre Trudeau repatriated it from the British in 1982. As far as I know people in France just think Quebecois have funny/weird accents (vid related) but don't think badly of them.

No. 997039

As a french person, their accents are funny and Canada as a whole feels like the new American dream for us. Lots of people go there or want to, and come back with lots of stories on how it's so much different but so much better.

super subjective but you have to bear in mind with the polarized culture war rubbernecking nonsense that anywhere with an aggressively "woke" populace has an equally aggressive and deeply resentful reactionary underbelly. it is only even really a "crypto" tendency among a certain class background due to fear of ostracization; a number of people are quite overt and brash about it.
you know what they say about leftist men too. there are different subtypes of misogyny but it's still there. some of it is just viewed as regressive or impolite, so people have to approach it with disingenuous finesse.
similar dynamic with racism in canada, i think. we do have actual textbook white supremacist groups, and i don't say this as a hysterical twitter retard at all. we import a lot of distinctly american schisms and conspiracy-mongering too… completely incoherent in context. again, i don't have any stakes in this, just my observations as someone who can blend unnoticed into most groups because of being quiet and socially invisible.

Question from an American here (pls no bully), I'm considering accepting a job in Montreal and looking at apartments. They all seem so much cheaper than what I was expecting, for reference I currently pay 1.5k USD living in a "luxury" 1br apartment in a medium-size metro - not NYC/LA anywhere like that. There seems to be a lot of "luxury" buildings in what I think are pretty nice areas of town to live in around that price range. I'm a bit surprised that rent generally does not seem to be as astronomical as I was anticipating. Are there hidden fees or other things to consider in the costs that would make the rent actually be a lot higher? Or is cost of living in Montreal just lower than I anticipated

No. 997457

Seething snowflake lmao

No. 997521

I wouldn't rent one of the "luxury" apartments. They are usually filled with Air BnBs, they are also very cheaply made, also you would have to worst landlord (probably a chinese man that doesn't even live in Canada). Do not rent from hassidic jews, they are awful landlords and do not care about you or making the apartment liveable (I have made this mistake and many friends too). Also landlords cannot ask you for any deposit (no first and last month, pet fees, etc). The only thing you pay is your rent every month. The landlord can ask you to pay for the credit check but it is deductible from your first rent. Scummy landlords love to charge illegal fees to immigrants and anyone that don't know better. Electricity is only expensive during the winter, cellphone/internet services are crazy expensive, food is also more pricy now. Montreal only looks cheap to outsiders, rents have doubled in the last few years. We are also used to cheap rents so to us the new prices are not affordable. If you make around minimum wage/low middle class you cannot live alone anymore. For 1.5K here you can get a 3-4 bedrooms in most neighborhoods. Don't rent in Laval or Longueuil even if it seems like it's near everything. Also learn French if you want to move here. It is possible to only speak English if you stay near the downtown area (McGill/Concordia ghettos, NDG, Mile-End, St-Henri, Griffintown), but it is very dumb to not mix with the majority of the population.

No. 997601

Honestly in my experience some mid-sized cities in the USA can be just as expensive as bigish Canadian cities (excluding anything in Ontario or BC where prices are insane.) Depending on where you are looking in Montreal, especially if it's a place near the airport, it's probably just more affordable than you were expecting. Good luck with the hunt!

No. 997615

I'm going to join the train of everyone complaining about how expensive it is. I've been living on my own since I was 17 and worked primarily in retail for 8 years. So I was usually on minimum wage for the most part. I had management positions towards the end but I will say that in the last two years I have really noticed price increases. Maybe even just in the last few months. I have a 9-5 in the animation/film industry but I'm still not well off. Our phone plans are a joke when basically every other country has them for dirt cheap. I'm smart with my groceries but it still hurts everytime I have to buy them lol. There's no way I'll own a house either. I live in Vancouver and my friend and his partner moved all the way to Abbotsford. I get it's cheaper further from the city but I couldn't live in the outskirts of the lower mainland, I would shoot myself lol

No. 997746

Hey, americanon, you are welcome here. Rent laws differ from province to province, with some having stronger renter rights than others. I know that Quebec has strong rental rights, but where I live in Ontario, you need to be a bit careful. Thanks to Doug Ford, he made weird changes to rent control laws that only helped his rich, developer cronies. So. A lot of new fancy condos aren't covered by rent control if they've been built/occupied for rent on and after November 18, 2018. What happens is that some people get suckered in by the lower rent and nice amenities then get fucked over by greedy landparasites that increase their rent by 20%. It's not super frequent, but it does happen and you need to ask the landlord/rental company when it was first occupied or built. I will also add that white collar, big city Canadian salaries are lower than white collar, big city American ones so it might seem like it's cheaper but it all balances out.

Toronto's nature is really shitty compared to Vancouver, but it's hard to compete when one city is located near mountains and beaches! Toronto does have some interesting landscapes but you have to go east in Scarborough for the bluffs. Kind of crazy that that kind of scenery exists in the GTA, honestly. Otherwise if your sister decides to get a car, she can drive to Tobermory or Algonquin or to any of the national parks. They are quite beautiful but they're neither beaches nor mountains.

It's not that bad! I do have to say that there are way too many weed shops, and it's kind of ridiculous. It's a lot of weed shops, chain store fast food, and pharmacies (Shoppers, Rexall).
I do enjoy living in Toronto just because there's a lot of diversity and I don't feel too out of it since there are a lot of people of my ethnicity. The food is really great and enough musicians come here to play. The downside is that it's getting expensive even for some white collar professionals as no viable solutions are being considered by politicians. I think Vancouver has similar problems as well, with a bunch of foreign investors buying up a bunch of condos inflating rent and property prices. I think either the municipal or the provincial government tried to add some fees for foreign investors but I don't think it worked since Vancouver is still very expensive.

Writing an angry letter to the local MP or marching in the street is futile, we need to consider more efficient methods of action because at this point so many of us agree that the situation has become insoportable, yet we're resigned to feeling totally powerless about our situation. The last couvre-feu lasted 5 fucking months. I will be shocked and frankly disappointed in us as a society if the situation continues like this for another so many months.

i work in a grocery store and there have been endless supply chain issues paired with striking factory workers, dock workers and truck drivers. customers keep harassing our produce department and demanding to know why we don't have certain shitty processed foods on the shelves but the warehouses are just kind of unpredictably empty. shortages really depend on where it is sourced from and how it's shipped. sometimes i ask retail wagies in other stores if they have something and they just straight up tell me they haven't had it in a long time and don't know if or when they will again. we do rain checks in my store and i was instructed to let customers know we might never get certain things back in stock and that i don't know whether their product will come back in.
a lot of domestic products from out of province are up in the air too, depending where from. the big chains are trying to keep things well stocked and do some sneaky facing and layouts and i think a lot of the sales they do are sort of deceptive and placating because they can eat a certain margin without losing profit to maintain appearances. don't think major cities will become food deserts but prices are definitely going to go up more than they already have. guess we'll see how it goes

No. 1034543

I mean, yes? When the Cons got voted in, they slowly kept on reducing funding to the public health care sector so they could privatize it for profit. Nurses and other medical staff have been working pretty much nonstop since the pandemic with virtually no raises or benifits. A lot are quitting just because they can't handle it anymore. What happens if there are less personnel? Less people to care for patients, more people waiting to be treated whether they're covid related or not…

No. 1034560

thats what i meant. the ER is always at capacity because we have never had proper funding. also: are you really trying to spin this as an issue due to conservatives? seriously? i get scared just thinking about how bad things would be (not happy with ford, but libs are 10000x worse always) if libs were in charge or the ndp kek these problems have always existed. the solution here would involve 1. REMOVING the mandates in health care because they dont make sense nor are they about health and they costed hospitals/long term care homes, etc. their workers and 2. opening up more clinics/hospitals… they couldve done that a long time ago whilst complaining about things for so long but here we go again, down an endless cycle of "we have to lockdown bc case #s and ICU is overfilled" then "okay heres your freedom back for a few months". putting bandaids that not only RUIN mental health of everyone, peoples relationships, their physical health, and more like mandates and lockdowns is not a solution nor can it continue.

Yeah, I'm putting the present blame on the Conservative government because they've always cared about profits over anything and well, they're currently the government that's doing the flipflopping of mandates and freedom. I do agree that the Liberals or NDPs wouldn't have done things differently, though I feel like they wouldn't have tried to privatize health care like the Cons (knocking on wood).
>1. REMOVING the mandates in health care because they dont make sense nor are they about health and they costed hospitals/long term care homes, etc. their workers
I'm not sure how it costed hospitals or long term care homes? Like you said, the ERs were always at capacity due to a lack of funds, so the mandates helped it keep it under control (for a lack of better word) compared to the States or India. Public long term care homes also benefitted since they were such a vulnerable group.
>2. opening up more clinics/hospitals
With the privatization of health care and the limited supply of underpaid and underworked health staff, I don't think it's actually viable. It's an obvious and correct solution but qualified personnel that never tire don't grow on trees. Ontario just doesn't have the funds and the manpower.

This is exactly what i mean! Leftists are always preaching about communism and rising up and talking about evil elites, but here they are showing their true colours! They dont truly believe what they say, its all about looking virtuous. Also, I wish parliament would be wiped clean too, but thats wishful thinking!

You actually need a lot of requirements to be a trucker. 9 times out of 10 the truckers in the ditch aren’t white. The only thing I hate is the fact they speed like hell because their payment depends on how fast they get there. I wish trucker culture changed for that reason alone.

Sorry for being a clueless europoor, but what happened to those trucker protests? Did they get their vaccine mandates for trucks revoked in the end (that's what they wanted, right?)

No. 1093797

No, after Trudeau evoked the Emergencies Act the attention shifted from ending mandates to getting him to revoke the Act as soon as possible and free everyone arrested. Then the Ukraine invasion hit which conveniently diverted everyone’s attention and let him off the hook. However during the protests the provinces finally started making plans for removing things like masks and vaccine passports. The border vaccine requirement still applies but many Premiers and State Governers have sent letters to Trudeau and Biden asking them to remove it.

I'd eventually like to move somewhere in BC. I'd prefer Vancouver Island but my bf wants to settle somewhere near Vancouver because that's where his family is. What are some nice places around Vancouver but not ACTUALLY in Vancouver? Vancouver housing is ridiculously expensive. Toronto's too, but that's our next option as my family lives there.

They're mad cause they have to speak French. Just move somewhere else in the RoC ffs. Only in Québec people get mad at having to learn the official language. Move anywhere else in the world and these people will call you dumb for not learning the language, except for Québec. We are the only French nation in America and we would like to preserve our culture and language but we are bad for thinking that way (just look at what happened to Louisiana, French is pretty much extinct there). I used to not be a separatist, but the more I grow old the more I think it would be a positive thing. I know a lot of people from the RoC that love our province and love that we speak French and would be sad to see us go, but sadly not everyone think that way. I hate the CAQ, but this is one of the only positive thing they've done. The only party that was against the bill was obviously the PLQ, PQ voted against cause they believe the bill was not harsh enough.

I'm all for preserving the culture and languages of the native, this bill is not about them. This bill is about West Island/Westmount anglos and immigrants that refuse to learn a lich a French and that runs businesses exclusively in English. QS even mentioned that they want to do something more for natives. I believe the most used native languages should be thaught in secondary schools as an option and history classes should focus more on their history before 1492/1534. Do you think the RoC cares about their native population culture and languages? Cause they fucking don't.

Foreign buyers is a part of it but it’s mainly people moving from other overpriced provinces to cheaper cities. People from the GTA have almost ruined Nova Scotia’s housing prices. I saw a lot of them talking about moving to Quebec City but now let’s see if this trend continues with bill 96.

No. 1196256

There was a program for rich people that would grant them citizenship if they lived in Quebec for x amount of time and invested money in the province. It ended up with rich chinese people buying a lot of land, pretending to live in Québec while they either fucked off to Toronto or Vancouver or just never actually officialy moved away from China.

These people won't have any fun when they realise that outside of the greater Montreal (also Hull/Gatineau and some small villages along the Ontario border), people can barely speak English. Most people in Quebec City hate foreigners and are not very good English speakers. It is also very conservative.

I have to choose somewhere to live between Toronto/GTA and Eastern Ontario but everywhere seems depressing and expensive and I just want to save money for a while. The last place I lived before covid was cheap at the time but so isolating and boring that I ended up spending most of my time in Toronto and wasting money that way. I wish there were even one small to medium city with affordable housing and some secular local events that aren't just country and folk music.

As long as you try, people won't mind you not being great with French at first. Hang out with French people and tell them to not speak in English to you (I know we tend to do that cause we think it will be easier for you, but in the end it doesn't help). With the new bill, it is requirted to speak in French at work unless it is a very small business. The best way to be fluent is to fully immerse yourself. Montréal has changed a lot in the past years, I don't love it as much as I did when I moved here 15 years ago. It is becoming a very ugly city, all the new constructions don't fit with the beautiful old buildings. I wish they'd keep building triplexes instead of ugly condo towers that nobody wants to live in. I loved that Montréal was a big inexpensive city with a low population. Now it is becoming another Vancouver or Toronto.

Shit's becoming more divided than the south and north Koreans, housing is over capacity because we literally don't have the infrastructure to support so many people.
