Mr. Gurmuck Singh Chahal is going to Acsenda School of Management!

Few months ago, Mr. Gurmuck Singh Chahal consulted us about his plan to immigrate to Canada.  He is not quite comfortable with the Express Entry System, as he wanted to leave immediately.  We then explained the benefits of studying in Canada as International Student.

And the reason is love...

We've been in the industry for more than 20 years already and have processed more than 50,000 visa applications. And based on experience, from our clients's stories, there are various reasons why people immigrate to Canada.

There are successful businessmen in their forties who would still take a chance in Canada with their children's future as the motivation.  There are young professionals who would do it for their parents and siblings.  There are professionals with established career willing to start again from entry level positions in Canada just to make sure their families gets a better future. In a nut shell, people immigrate because they want to have financial security. But all of these can be summarized in one word.

People immigrate because of LOVE.

Canada was recently named overall 2nd best country in the world. Quality of life is one of the basis, where Canada ranked No. 1. As a permanent resident in Canada, your kids will receive monthly allowance from the government.  They get free education from Grade 1-12 various government support for those who want to pursue college education.  It offers one of the best health care system.  A generally peaceful and friendly society.  If dreaming to give your family these benefits is not love, I don't know what is.

If you have the education and experience that makes you eligible to immigrate to Canada, all you need is a firm decision and strong commitment. There are only two ways to look at the Financial requirements to immigrate - as an excuse or as a challenge.

What is it going to be for you?

Immigration is not a simple process. It may take a while, the process may be difficult but with the right reason, it will be all right. You will never go wrong if the reason you're immigrating is love.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Filipino Plaza in Vancouver

Did you know that there is actually a Filipino Plaza in Vancouver? I just learned about it today when I saw it from twitter. Marieton Pacheco of ABS-CBN North America News Bureau wrote a story about at

The Filipino Plaza in Vancouver is one of the many multi-cultural parks developed in the area during the 1980s.

Nelson Didulo was part of the Filipino Plaza committee of 1985 when government offered various ethnic groups lot area under the Expo Sky Train line in Vancouver.

This was part of Transways BC's parkway program, a showcase of different cultural parks on the 26-kilometer path that parallels the Skytrain.

Didulo said the community raised funds for the Filipino Plaza and decided to put a “sarimanok” near the park’s name.

Vancouver bans smoking in parks, beaches.

VANCOUVER—Smoking cigarettes in the parks and beaches of Canada's third largest city is to be banned as of September 1, the Vancouver Park Board has decided.

The elected board voted Monday night to prohibit smoking in some 200 parks and along 18 kilometers (11 miles) of beaches, such as Vancouver's famed Stanley Park, citing opinion surveys that suggest enormous support for the measure. [Source]

This is good news for non-smokers like me. I wonder how Pinoys will react if the same rule will be implemented in Batangas beaches and resorts. :-)

Mark is now in Vancouver!

If you have read my post about Guide for Filipino Nurses, you will be familiar with the case of Mr. Mark Hernandez. For those who are just new here, Mark sent his resume to me for assessment a year ago. He is a Registered Nurse but at the time, he barely have one year work experience. He is not eligible to apply under Federal Skilled Worker program and like what I normally advise to those who are not yet eligible, I told him to start looking for a job offer from Canada (Here's how to find jobs in Canada).

He did and he is now working in the beautiful city of Vancouver!

I haven't met Mark in person but we constantly communicate through email and IM's. Yesterday, he told me that he was able to watch 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics! He also told me that he met Marieton Pacheco last month.

See you in Vancouver soon, Mark! :-)
