Relocating can be expensive and time consuming. Also if you work on 3, 6 or 12 month contracts, it doesn't make sense to move 2-3 times a year. If that's the case your better option is to settle in a place you like, where there are plenty of jobs. Sometime it might be better to wait a few more weeks to find a local job, instead of jumping on the first job opportunity far away.

I wouldn't relocate. I completely agree with comehome. If I was a newcomer probably I would because the job is the most important thing when you first come to Canada.

Hi,

We came to Canada last month. It's not what we expected though. I've started to look for a job but it turns out I need some certifications to practice and everybody is asking about the Canadian experience. I am an architect and I would relocate if I find a job.

Question No Canadian experience

Any tips on how to deal with the Canadian experience question? Most of the recruiters are asking about that but I am a newcomer….

I admire your courage! I wouldn't relocate for the world. All my friends are here and I love to travel but not relocation...Did you contact the Professional Association of Architects?
