On Thursday (November 19th) morning, a fresh coat of snow greeted most of Manitobans, including us here in Winnipeg, here come’s winter.

According to Environment Canada, Winnipeg received about 3 to 10 centimeters of snow on Thursday morning and for over 24 hours, temperatures made a 15-degree swing from 1 degree Celsius with the wind-chill of feeling like -14.

A few days ago, I had the chance to read the emails from my blog readers, there was an email from a fellow Filipino who had questions about his permanent resident (PR) status, this prompted me to review my past blogs and see what have I written about this topic.

After going through the first steps in settling down in a new country, finding a job will probably be the very next step that a newly arrived immigrants will do.

For sure most people you know who are residents of Canada are giving you various advice or tips about working in Canada. But aside from the information that you’ve run from the people that you have talked to here are some numbers that you must remember which will help you get familiar with the Canadian workplace.

Nope, I am not giving a lesson about the parts of speech or other grammar lessons in this post, I will share with you some words, slang and phrases that are commonly used by Canadians. That is true, Canadians have their own take on everyday words. Here in Canada, we drink double-double coffee, eat poutine and drink pop, we wear toque, we write an exam, go to the washroom and we know that the last letter of the alphabet is “zed,” very Canuck, eh?

I didn’t have the time to blog for a month,  but responding to  comments and emails that I received kept me going… Today, I thought that it maybe interesting to come out with a post that will describe the preparation that my family made prior to our landing to the City of Peg (Manitoba).

“I swear that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second, Queen of Canada, her heirs and successors, and that I will faithfully observe the laws of Canada and fulfill my duties as a Canadian citizen.”
