During the past couple of months our daughter and her husband have come over from England to visit and look for work in Canada. This has proven to be more of a challenge than we first thought it would be when it comes to obtaining a job. Both of them are highly skilled individuals, our daughter having nine certificates in home care and nurse’s aid. Her husband is a certified electrician with a high voltage rating which means he can work off a helicopter and work on high voltage cross country lines. He is also a chef and caregiver, yet with all this on their side it seems that the red tape of our government will not let them in even when the want ads are screaming for both their trades. If you are from Germany or from Japan or China it seems the Government will give them a job, money to live on as well as a home to live in until they are on their feet. We were allies with the English when Germany threatened the world with Hitler’s, yet the former enemies of Canada are allowed in rather than our allies. There seems to be something wrong with the memory of our governments. There are some companies within Canada that will give a letter (an LBO) saying that they want to have this certain person to work for them, however no one can find out who these companies are or how to get the letter. We went to the regional hospital and were told they were needed and would be hired A.S.A.P. but when the David Thompson Health Unit was informed, we were told that they were not hiring from Britain although they are taken on from different countries around the world. It is in my opinion that if a country was part of the commonwealth you will not stand a chance to come into Canada to work without being backed by an enormous amount of money. If there are any companies who read this please come forward.
