Don’t get me wrong, I’m very grateful with Quebec.
They were the ones that gave me the chance to come to Canada.
But there’s something wrong with this Province: they spend money like crazy!
They subsidize almost everything and has a terribly huge debt.
Despite that, keep on expending and subsidizing. And, even worst, they think about separating from Canada that with their poor financial shape, it could be equivalent to suicide!)
A few days ago I came across a post at Stepehen Taylor’s blog about Quebec debt.
Taken from a Desjardins report about the state of the economy in the Province, it showed the terrible relation between their Debt and their GDP.
What is also known as the Debt-to-GDP is defined as the the ability of a country to make future payments on its debt. The higher the debt-to-GDP ratio, the less likely the country will pay its debt back, and the higher its risk of default. (Read more at Investopedia)
So, what does this have to do with immigration?
It’s simple… Where do you want to live? In a Province that subsidizes your day care, studies, etc. but is in the verge of falling as bad as Spaing, Greece or (who knows) Italy? Or in Canada?
What I’m trying to say is: just choose wisely. Be informed. Read. Ask. Research.
Not that you cannot move in the future, but you may want to save yourself some unnecessary stress.
