"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.

Gatineau's list of Dos and Dont's for newcomers - Media monitoring

First, what is the issue?
A list of "essential values" prescribed to immigrants (intending or already) moved to Gatineau is raising eyebrows for some of its suggestions. The city Gatineau’s guidebook lists 16 tips including not to give bribes, commit honour killings or cook smelly foods.

Here are some media reviews on the above subject:
  • Siddiqui: Immigrants should boycott Gatineau Toronto Star ... The “statement of values” ought to be amended, added to and addressed to all Canadians, not just new immigrants...
  • What's your reaction to Gatineau's list of Dos and Dont's for newcomers? CTV National News

  • Guidelines for Gatineau immigrants raises eyebrows CTV Ottawa

  • New Canadians arriving in Gatineau - guidelines www.canadavisa.com

  • Gatineau’s values guide for immigrants stirs controversy Globe and Mail ...

  • If you decide to move to Gatineau you may not be able to cook food http://www.cornwallseawaynews.com ...East Indians use a variety of spices in their curries and this may not be acceptable. However, Russians and people from other East European countries love cabbage and this smell may also not be acceptable. Personally, cigarette smell is not acceptable to me...
