It’s now hit, what? The 30 year mark?
Only one in four [immigrants] manages to obtain a licence in one of Ontario’s 37 regulated professions, compared with 60 per cent of Canadian grads. And that licence may take two years to get, compared with less than a year for native-born Canadians.
Those findings, to be released Tuesday, put some hard numbers on the deep frustration many newcomers experience.
Everywhere I go in Toronto, variety stores advertise pre-paid long distance phone cards. I’m always hearing about how immigrants today constantly keep in touch with people “back home.”
So why don’t you tell those people “back home” how hard it is for you to get a job?
And if you do tell them, why do they keep coming anyhow?
Either way, you all sound pretty witless.
Nurses who barely speak English are dangerous enough. But I really don’t want someone who learned engineering in Kenya building our bridges, either.
PS: please stop calling “immigrants” “newcomers”. It’s not making us like them any better.
