Hi guys, it’s been a while! Life has been pretty hectic recently, with many things going on in both my professional and personal life. So here I am, writing this post after loooong silence (so sorry for that!)
Everything is alright, don’t worry. I do believe that everything happens for a reason, and I’m learning to embrace all changes with a positive attitude.
One of the recent changes that I’m actually very excited to tell you about is.. we’ve moved to an adorable town called Georgetown – just 1h from Toronto. I got a research assistant job at Georgetown University, and it’s literally the job of my dreams!
Besides this life update, let me share 3 reasons why I looove my Canadian life so much!
Reason 1: Canada has plenty of jobs for foreigners
No matter what culture and background you are coming from, chances are high that you will find a job in Canada!
Every province has different labor needs, but there are professions demanded everywhere. Just to name some examples…
- Truck drivers
- Caregivers and nurses
- Construction workers
- Marketing manages
- Customer support specialists
- HR specialists
- Sales managers
And there are many more! And to be honest.. they pay pretty well!
Before landing my research assistant job, I used to work as a secretary and then as office assistant in a law firm. Both were excellent experiences, with great work conditions and caring managers.
Reason 2: Canada has a very multicultural society and it feels good!
Honestly, I’ve never been exposed to so many different cultures in one place.
Here in Canada I got to meet amazing people from all over the world, in the law firm I had coworkers from France, Belgium, India, Taiwan and even one lady from the Bahamas! It was an amazing multicultural environment, I learned so much and I’m really happy that Canada welcomes interesting people from so many different countries.
Everyone brings his own background, cuisine, traditions and culture, and it’s just amazing to see such a variety coming together in one place.
Here, you can feel free, you can feel respected and you can just be a Canadian while keeping your roots and your own cultural background. And I think it’s beautiful, and it’s how every developed society should look like.
Reason 3: Canada is generally a safe place
I didn’t appreciate this fact enough, since I’m coming from a pretty safe place too.
However, when I heard stories of people from other countries, and they said horrible stories about how unsafe and vulnerable they felt in their previous homes… this opened my eyes on Canada in a totally new way.
Safety was something I didn’t think much about and didn’t value, and for many people it was actually one of the main reasons for the decision to immigrate to Canada.
Conclusion: while Canada is not a 100% perfect place for life (no place is perfect, in my opinion), I think I made the right choice!
Once I’ll surely make a post about the disadvantages of life in Canada personally for me (I’m ONLY sharing my personal opinion, keep in mind that it’s a personal blog). Although there are some things I wish I could change (and I hope will change with time), I do love my Canadian life a lot. It’s been full of ups and downs, challenges and achievements, but it was surely worth all the effort!
Gonna go do my research work, and hope to get back to you guys soon and not disappear for long any more!
