It may sound stupid and somewhat obvious, but it’s not. Most of the people I interviewed for the past weeks and was asked this question had a hard time finding the answer.
Some people just wants to get out of their countries. They are sick and tired of leaving under economic and political regimes they do not agree with.
Those are the ones that are here, but could be somewhere else. Australia for instance.
The thing is that having a proper answer to this question is one of the keys to success. If you know what you want and why you want it, be sure you will easily find the way to get it. It may not be easy, it may take years but it will come. As far as you do not give up.
Don’t laugh at me. But I did not have a clear answer for that either when I started my papers back in 2003. I was in that group of people looking to flee their country to find a better society. One where I could feel more comfortable with. It could’ve been Australia, but I am here. And I love it.
Why I came to Canada, is your question? it was a win-win situation. Back in the days, Canada needed people like me, with a family like mine and professional experience like mine. For me, the barrier was not that high and it was affordable. I was also in conditions of doing all the paperwork myself. It was the perfect situation to get the f… out of Argentina, where I was bored of falling and having to start over every 5 to 7 years!
What about you? Would you answer me this question? leave a comment and let us know Why do you want to come to Canada and What does coming to Canada mean for you!
