Words of wisdom:
"Remember your weekly mix of activity will vary, depending on how soon you need to be employed, how much time you have to spend on your campaign each week, the economy, the relative difficulty of job finding in your targeted field, and the relative effectiveness of each job search method with regards to your job objective. Good Luck!!!" [source: JobSearch-in-Canada.com]

    38 job categories listed in bid to clear backlog; critics say the move offers'no solutions'
    Nov 29, 2008 04:30 AM Toronto Star

    If you're planning to move to Canada, you'll have to check the list first.
    Thirty-eight in-demand occupations were unveiled by the Harper government yesterday, setting out a new selection criteria for skilled immigrants, allowing those with relevant skills to be fast-tracked into the country.
    The occupations include jobs in the field of health, skilled trades and the finance sector. Details of the long-awaited "ministerial instructions" were posted on the Citizenship and Immigration Canada website (http://www.cic.gc.ca/), and come into effect immediately. continue reading @ Toronto Star

    I'm of two minds about the idea. On the one hand, I understand the impetus to bring people in to occupations we need the most. But on the other hand, what about people who've been waiting just as long, or longer, for their choice? I suppose ultimately, the government has to do what it thinks is right for Canada, but it doesn't seem really fair to me.

    But the country needs people. Canada will always need new people. I'm grateful that skilled people want to come here and help build the country.

    The greater concern is that Canada accepts too many unnecessary people to begin with. What I mean by this is that close to 80% of all immigrants to Canada enter the country with no pertinent job skills or language skills. This explains why poverty rates in Toronto are characterized by immigrants and ethnic/vismin communities.

    Officially the government figure is that half of all immigrants are economic. What isn't revealed in the number is that spouses and dependent children of an economic class immigrant are included. Take them away and the number drops to below 25%, and some say 17%.

    Canada may need people but not as many as we are told.
