I have come across several discussions debating why it may or may not be worth it immigrating to Canada. When asked, many who eventually succeeded would argue that immigrating to Canada is perhaps the best decision they made for themselves and their families. For those who are still struggling or who did not have a so great experience after landing in Canada, they would wonder why it ever makes sense for people to leave their "successful lives" behind in their country of birth and have to take up "survival jobs" or less gratifying professional jobs in Canada. Viewpoints will continue to vary depending on which side of the divide one prefers to stay. I have experienced the good, the bad and the ugly side of immigration but my story is still being written. I will also share my personal opinion on topics like survival jobs but kindly realize it will be biased since it is based on my personal experience, observation, interpretation, and perspective on life.
