      Hi there I would appreciate any info... For those who submitted study permit applications from within South Africa. (Application for an adult with a family) How long after submission did you receive the request for biometrics? and what are your other milestones from date of submission? i.e. when did you receive the request for medicals, police clearance, the result of the application etc.? Thank you

      So true. There’s a massive gap in culture and looking back I now realize just how “rough around the edges” I was when I first started working here 15 years ago. The FOB (fresh off the boat) person usually doesn’t fit in properly and it takes time to adapt. But some people do NOT adapt and keep on wanting to do things the way it was done back in SA - that new hire becomes a liability so the company eventually fires the person (what they term “let go”).    If I was hiring and I had 2 candidates and 1 was SAn: I would actually only hire the person if they were by far the strongest candidate because of the challenges of hiring a FOB employee. I’d much rather go with the home grown Canadian. Most employers think that way unfortunately.

      Hi Ryan, We haven’t landed we r landing in May. I need to give adequate notice at my place of work hence the delay.  Sadly no feedback yet. However I did some research myself and found that qualifications need to be vetted by the equivalent of SAQA. I don’t know if you know about this. Anyway this is a link to the website https://cacb.ca. Apparently no province would register you as an “intern architect” the equivalent of “candidate architect in SA” without this. that’s all I know for now. If you have any information please share especially since you are landing early am sure you would know a lot more once on ground.  Have a nice day. Regards, Oma

      We are planning a LSD trip in the beginning of March with our base in Toronto. Does any one have recommendations on airbnb in Toronto?  Are there any shops/second hand shops with really good discounts on winter attire currently?  What documents would we need at the point of entry?  Kind regards  Delene
