Moving to Canada - Calling Shroomerites - SERIOUS!
    #3504724 - 12/15/04 06:35 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Ok, here's the deal. A couple people from the boards, myself included, have been discussing moving into a house together in Canada - in particular somewhere around the Vancouver area of BC.

We don't have any final dates set up yet, nor do we have a very good grasp on exactly what we're doing.

Right now, I personally have plans to be contacting immigration and trying to set things up for myself in the next month. I'd like to be in Canada by the beginning / middle of spring. I will be living in Seattle for the first quarter of '05, and travelling to Canada occasionally on the weekends and trying to get a grip on the whole place.

Basically, I have a couple questions for you all:

1) Is anyone else available and/or interested in moving to Canada in '05?
2) Does anyone have any experience immigrating to Canada?
3) Does anyone have tips for the Canada-hopefuls already planning this strange and optimistic adventure?

I hope to hear from a LOT of you in this thread, and if you're interested please let me know! I'm just trying to get this monster of a project off the ground.

Dude, that is awesome of you..if i wasn't in the middle of college, I would definitely take you up on that offer, but alas, I'm stuck here for another two years.  But, I am right on the interstate to Seattle (literally, my house is 45 seconds from the interstate), about 8 hours away, so if you need a place to crash on your way out, or just want to stop and smoke a bowl, let me know. Good luck on your journeys! :smile:

Elll yeah, Adamist and I have been contemplating this idea for a while now.  We are very interested, but I can literally only speak for myself.  I wouldn't realistically be able to be there until after the National Rainbow Gathering :wink:  I love priorites!

A plethora of music aspirations control my temptations of future revelations beyond "now". The percussion, and the heart beat of my love and devotion. The rhythm goes beyond, prying into the third eye, releasing the creativity held so far inside. The melodicies, through the out of tune pianos and broken classical guitars...there lies a beauty. A beauty as prevelent as the fire inside. To release these energies is pure ecstacy, to deveop these gifts is sacred. The vocality, so pure as can be, shying away from herself, lies within me. For the underlying serenitity, this is what I live for. I plea for harmony, and nothing more. Music equals love. Creation of love leads to the procreativity of the World, and it's spirals and puddles prevailing.

Ares & Shroomism: I'm sure if there's a house to be got in Canada, the couple of us going could afford rent for a few months until after festival season.. then you could come up and have a house waiting for you :smile2:

Hendostan: I'll hopefully be in Seattle by the end of January. We'll have to keep in contact once it gets closer to my moving time, so we can meet up. :smile:

Good :thumbup: The more people in this thread the merrier.

I can only speak for myself too, as you said earlier, but I can always hope that everything will work out in the end. I'll be doing my part, I know that much!

That sounds quite good to me too.. the main thing I'm worried about is

1) Crossing the border
2) Getting a job once across the border

Any information you can provide to alleviate my fears is appreciated

I live in Canada.

If you're planning on renting, etc... you're probably going to want to spend a bunch of time studying this site:

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/

Which is the Canadian immigration site.

I have a friend who hitchhikes out to BC most summers, and he spends time working on farms and such in the valley. There are a lot of people who do this kind of thing, and he apparently has a directory of farmers who are willing to take people in. They don't all pay money, many of them will feed and house you in exchange for your work. This probably isn't a good long term option, as its seasonal.

Also, there are apparently a bunch of places that will pay you decently to help harvest marijuana crops. Doing jobs such as trimming, drying, etc... but you'll certainly need to network and make various friends to find a job like this.

If I recognize your name, and you seem like good folk, you can certainly spend a few days at my place in Toronto.

I'm not sure what kind of troubles you could run into crossing the border.. and as for getting a job once there, that's the kind of information I'd like to get from people who've done this before, or know about it.

As far as I can gather from the Canadian Immigration website, to get a work permit someone must first offer you a job. Now, I don't see how it would be possible for all citizens to get a job before entering the country, so I'm assuming it's less challenging to get a temporary residency card, then apply for jobs (in the normal manner of asking for an application, filling it out, etc), then if you get a callback, that's considered being offered a job, and you can go get your work permit. Once you've got that, you can work in Canada legally.

Someone please correct me if I'm way off. That's one of my reasons for this thread.

Crossing the border for a visit is easy. You might get searched, but that's not a problem if you don't bring things with you that you shouldn't. (Pot is cheaper, and easier to find up here in most places, you DON'T need to bring your own).

I'm not sure how things work for long stays or for moving here.

Have fun man, and don't bring anything illegal with you when across the border. They will do a hardcore search of your vehicle. I found out the hard way and am currently banned from Canada. :thumbdown:

I'm going! :smile:

As Shroomism said, Fall '05 is what it's looking like from  here.

But who knows? Anything can happen.
