I scored a 67 on the Canadian immigration test and a 67 is passing
Wow. You need a minimum of 67 points and I got exactly 67. My husband didn't do as well, but that's ok, he would be considered my "dependent" and I'd be the "primary applicant."

No, we're not going anywhere, I just found it interesting to know I could get a work visa. If I secured a teaching job there, my immigration test score would be even higher.

Hmmmm.........it's always something good to keep in the back of one's mind.....

If "they" is who I think you mean, sorry bub. Not if I have anything to say about.

George Bush and our PM are planning a "kiss and make up" meeting up here sometime in the early new year. Just wait and see how welcome "they" are. It's "personal". We're gonna pull out all the stops.

I really think the only place on earth where GWB is welcome is in darkest Africa, and even then only long enough for an elephant to achieve an erection. Then it's "let's get 'em outa' here."

But I digress. This is an immigration thread. Carry on.


edit: shpelling

18. That's what I'd have to do.
I got a 64. I'd need a job offer or greater proficiency in French to pass.

4. Sniffle. I don't.
Not rich enough. And virtually certain to fail the physical (no one wants someone with a neurological disability).

7. They didn't ask a single question about money or health.
It was all about education, work experience, language skills, and do you already have a job or family here, etc.

11. Well, I took a Canadian immigration lawyer's test
Taking the government's, assuming they count my telecommute job, I score a 77. The lawyer didn't count it, though.

I've read about the application process. You must submit a complete physical. When you arrive at the border, you must have a set amount of money (I forget what it is, but it depends partially on whether you have a job--without, I believe it's about CN$9K).

The government test, in short, doesn't cover all the things that you have to have to get into Canada.

8. Do you have to know anything about Canada????
I can name all of the Canadian provinces! Yukon Territory, Ontario, British Columbia, Saskachawaaaaaaaan...

I guess I'm staying put.

9. I got an 81
Too bad I can't count my former in-laws in Ontario as family. But at least I passed. Good to know. :D

16. My wife and I pass easily.
If our teenage kids ever feel a draft, hmmmm.....

These United States of America ain't all that special. My own ancestors came to the United States because they thought middle 19th century Europe sucked.

It's possible this early 21st century U.S.A. is gonna suck too.

The genes remember.

23. They can't possibly hate you

20. I passed, too - - and I have not a lot of recent skills LOL (m)
Gosh, seemed to me taking that test if you had any schooling, could parse a sentence, and wanted to head there, you could pass....

I mean, the only job I *didn't* see on that list was fastfood server.....

Canada ain't stupid - - if you have the bucks to self-support for 6 months, they will take you on....

21. I got 73
So that's plan B. But you know I always say, "Plan B is rarely a good idea - if it were, it would be Plan A."

22. I scored an 85 but I cheated on the languages a wee bit....
I can brush up on French if needed, though.

The trouble is that scoring high on the test is only the first step. Then you have to actually get a job offer. Since my field involves helping people get access to health care, there is no need for my particular skills in a country where everyone already has access to health care, which is one reason why I want to move there, if you follow me.

I'm staying put and fighting for now, but if my sons are threatened with a draft I will definitely take them someplace else. No way am I sacrificing my children for bushco's war. All those millions of Americans who voted for the chimp can volunteer.

25. We're full of teachers.
All the products of the "I have to send my kid to university" baby boomers have flooded the workplace with academics cum barristas...

We need skilled tradespeople... there will be a shortage of plumbers, machinists, etc in a couple of years.

No shortage of BAs and Teachers' College grads, though.

I have a friend who got tired of being a master chef a couple of years ago, and decided to go to school for CNC machining. He got "scouted" right out of school and received a $50,000 signing bomus to commit to a $75,000/yr job for three years. Not too shabby.
