    Oo nga balita ko nakakatakot na nga daw dyan sa WPG. Nagstay din kami dyan for 3 years tapos lipat na ng Surrey, BC. Halos lahat ng expenses mahal (gas, housing, etc..). Anyone from BC na pwede magrecommend ng good paying job? Currently working sa distribution company as a QA and previous warehouse order picker? lol.

    depende naman sa lugar... as in any city in Canada... mas delikado sa downtown and north end, outside of that, may mangilan ngilan na crime areas... nasa outskirts kami ng downtown and we've been here for 15 years at di pa naman kami nabibiktima... although in my first year, the only time I forgot to lock my garage door, nanakawan kami ng bike... mumurahin lang naman bikes namin so no big deal... nowadays I have 5 bikes in my garage, and I have cameras all over kaya wala na naglalakas loob pumasok man lang sa backyard namin...

    BC is very expensive, gusto rin sana namin lumipat diyan for the weather and para isang plane lang going to pinas (cheaper flight pa), kaso tiyak na duduguin naman kami para lang may matinong bahay diyan, compared sa winnipeg, a $300K house here is like a $2Million house in Vancouver...

    Haha. Tama ka dyan sir. Townhouse dito is worth na ng mga bahay sa Amber Trails sa Maples. Still praying and hoping na makabili kami ng house or townhouse dito if ever. ilang years din bago ko navisit 'tong site na to. last log in ko is 2017 yata. Well, nice to talk to fellow pinoys trying to live away from home (Philippines). kampay!
  • i think we were lucky enough to get a house 20k below asking price. pinoy din yung previous owner. malaking tulong din siguro na gumawa kami ng offer letter. excited to move in!
  • meron ba dito na pumasok sa canada using Student visa? My wife's cousin is in the process of applying... baka pwede share ninyo ang process ninyo (if you use immigration consultant, IELTS, show money, SDS - Student Direct Stream)
  • ^ we did. Fastest and surest way magastos lang. You dont need agency or consultant kung na research na yung process. Kung low ang ielts puwede mag language training muna pero dagdag isang term at least. Research at preparation ay malaking tulong

    My wife's cousin also has a lower IELTS... she has average 6.0 pero some bands are 5.5 and ang requirement ng Student Direct Stream is 6.0 for all bands... kaya nag apply din siya ng EAL (English as second language) + the 2 year college course (Business Admin)

    My question is, sa regular Student visa siya mag apply ano? dahil di siya pasado sa isa sa requirements ng SDS (which is the IELTS)

    With the regular student visa, ano kelangan niya pakita? she went with all the requirements sa SDS (GIC with canadian bank of $10K, Acceptance letter from Designate learning institution for EAL and Business Admin course, paid 1st year of tuition...
  • anyone here taken the AIPP path? (Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program)
