How can I move to Canada as an european?

Do I need a VISA in order to try to find a job there or can I go as a tourist, find a job and then get the VISA?

    Dude... if you can't even access government provided information, you may struggle with the beurocracy of progressing from visa -> PR -> citizenship

    My aussie mate went on a working visa, had to go back home once or twice to renew visa but was accepted to go ahead, then he stayed in Canada ever since. Assuming it can't be too different for a europ.

      The thing is that they ask you to prove your level of english by showing them a certificate. I have a decent level of english, however I don't have any certificate

      So would it be better to get the certificate first and then apply or should I risk it and go there? I know english and french but yeah I don't have any certificate so that complicates things

              Nah but seriously, is it a viable option to go there as a tourist and then look for a job and all? Because since I don't have a certificate I don't think I'll get a VISA online

                Sorry I was just joking a bit, wait for canadians to wake up.
                I think you can fairly easily go to Quebec, they have a point system which you could easily fulfill but I think it's harder to get a job while there, because they have to prioritize their people

        Most developed countries who want language proficiency do their own testing as part of the permanent residency/citizenship application. I can't speak for Canada, but I've not heard of a country asking you to do a language test BEFORE you come because the test is done in the country. Look on the Canadian gov immigration websites, maybe send them an email, or go holiday there, get info in person at gov buildings, then go home, prepare and come back.

        Also, you have to remember - THESE ARE CANADIANS - they are incredibly pleasant and forgiving. Even if they wanted you to do English testing before coming, if you didn't have a cert they would be like
        >Oh noo problem ehh, ill put a note on your application for extension saying language testing is in prooogress. Let me hold your hand and guide you to the testing facility then do the test for yoo while I give you a loving handjoob

        My Aussie mate went back to aus for a mate's wedding then got a call from Canadian immigration saying he wasn't suppose to leave Canada during his processing time. He apologised and they said
        >Ohhh mistakes happen, it's our fault for not making it clear to yooo. Just get back here as soon as yooo can! Sorry for bothering yooo and we hope you have a safe trip oot of Australia!

          hahaha it seems that the stereotype is accurate. I think I find Canada as a more attractive option than Europe in general because I know for a fact that my family wouldn't be able to go there (too old) and if I stay in Europe there's always the chance of them bothering me (my dad knows how to speak german, for instance)

          So yeah I guess that's partly why I want to go all the way

    Honest question, why do you want to canada? I cant imagine its much better unless you live in a really poor country. If you want space, cant you migrate to like remote scandiland places? Maybe even central countries, dont they have rural areas? I think in CoL and QoL terms germoney is still better than canuckda, but maybe with the moronic energy policies that changes...

      Well, in my case I want to move away because I feel very jaded here (family problems) and maybe that's why I want to move as far as possible from here

      The thing is, if I stay within the European Union I'd have to learn german, dutch or an scandinavian country if I want to live in a rural are (which I do), but since I already know english and french I think it'd be a good idea to go to canada

      Plus I've heard that it's pretty hard to socialize in Scandinavia, even for the locals and I think I would have a better chance at having a social life in Canada

        Canucks are for the most part polite, out of big cities anyway, but probably about as friendly as scandis when it comes to real connections. I really think you would be better off not moving so far away and dealing with the enormous hassle if it is just for the reasons you spelled out. Learning another germanic/romance language will not be so big a deal in comparison, and I genuinely think your end result QoL will be higher. Unless you want to live really far in nowhereland and like homestead or something, Europe is gonna be better (and maybe even better for that too, not as familiar).

            Actually getting the permanent residence and citizenship. Unless I'm mistaken is a bunch of bureaucratic bullshit and possibly being treated like a slave by the company controlling your visa. Your earning power is going to be about par with a richer euro country and getting to your rural area may be untenable unless you can make a homestead work, because AFAIK there are no decent jobs outside like Toronto/Ontario and Vancouver is basically unlivable and unaffordable even if you got good work there.

              Oh definitely, getting the permanent residence permit seems like a headache, also I'm pretty bad at this stuff so it's going to be pretty hard, plus I'm 23 so I should really be thinking about going to an specific country to settle there rather than testing the waters I guess

                Mate, if you go to Canada, you will get a high standard of living in exchange for a high cost of living, and it may be a VERY high cost depending on your working options and comparative wealth. I STRONGLY recommend doing some working holidays for months at a time and getting a good feel for the culture, country and people before deciding if you want to permanently move. If you move and it doesn't work out, you have set yourself back years while being low socioeconomic status and having poor social mobility.

                Everyone has their own path, and if it truly feels right deep down inside go for it. I mean Canadian universities are notoriously easy to get degrees in bit their degrees are recognized globally (easy because markers add marks from zero as they mark instead of deduct from 100) so if you settle and get educated, then in your 30s you can move around again for good money of you want to. And your 20s are definitely the time to dick around, but not to get locked in to something you might regret.

                Up to you but I'm just saying, moving to settle in another country isn't something to be taken lightly. And I think you are taking it a bit lightly because you didn't even go out of your way to do very basic research (though maybe I see it as basic because I'm well educated).

                You're right, to be completely honest I don't have a lot of life experience so that hinders me a bit when it comes to making good decisions

                I guess what I could do is to try to move inside the EU first and maybe go to Canada on a holiday or something to do what you mentioned (like getting a good feel of it's culture and social life) and also have a better understanding of what I would need in order to move there

                Because when I did the test to see my chances of getting a Working Holiday VISA it said that it was unlikely because I don't have an english nor french certificate, plus I don't have any family there either

                So what I could do is to go there on a holiday and find out how is the situation there and also try to get an english certificate

          Id say its on par with Europe demographically/economically when it comes to rural areas, with more space to espace into, but that land is not that great. Very cold, not much light, worse than even most of Scandinavia/Finland IMO.

        As a leaf trying to leave this country good luck.
        I'm in my early 30s and it was tough when I graduated, I can't imagine how hard it is now, especially for someone trying to move here and start a life without any support.
        Universities are going to charge you 4x+ more than it would cost regular canadians, in any city you'll have to live with multiple roommates to afford rent and even outside cities you might have to do that too, the weather is shit for most of the year, minorities are everywhere, the government is becoming increasingly authoritarian, everything is gay.
        Rural areas are really the only redeeming factor, but the cost of living and finding work you can do in a rural area makes it very difficult to make a living. Even if you do make enough to sustain yourself, not being trapped in a cycle of poverty is another matter.
        Since you speak french, maybe Quebec is easier (although I hear it's a very different french), I know their housing is less insane.
        Honestly I wouldn't even bother with this country, it's a worse version of the US. You have a lot more options in the EU. If it's just to escape family you can just go to another city and not tell them where you went.

        it's a good enough reason. there are many cool places in canada, you probably would want like a mining job or air traffic controller in NWT job if you want to experience real wild canada

        the main reason I hate it here is the abysmally high cost of housing and rent, but this wouldn't be the case for your thunder bay mining job

      It seems like every time we talk to euros on here and the subject of canada comes up, they always have this bizarro version of canada in their heads that bears no resemblance to the real thing. Like they all watched Dudley Doright once and assumed it was a literal portrayal of canada.

      Specifically, euros seem to think:
      -that canada being fricking enormous on the map will translate to less crowded living conditions (not the case at all as most of canada is off-limits for habitation, and the areas that are available are going through the most intense housing crisis on earth)
      -that they can get the best of both worlds, enjoying the opportunity of north america without the pesky american ideals they dont understand (in practice canada shares most of the social issues america has like inequality, intractable race issues, and shitty social safety nets, sometimes to an even greater degree than the US)
      -some euros seem to think from the stereotypical depiction of canada as a wild frontier it will be more libertarian than what they were used to in europe (lmao)

        this one is true. I regularly go 40-50km/h over the speed limit in the GTA and no cops give me trouble
        Our Covid restrictions were relatively mild compared to other countries, and our police forces refused to obey when the Ontario premier wanted more draconian ones.
        Our roads are wide, 2-3 lanes on each side unlike the eurocucks with their 1-laner roads
        We have no knife licenses and our gun laws are more reasonable than many european countries.

    Don't go to Canada, go to Spain. I creampied this Irish girl at a hostel who decided to leave her country on a whim. She started waitressing, but got a job as a data scientist at a startup and has a Spanish boyfriend, from the looks of it (she already had a degree).

    The weather is good, people are actually friendly and enjoy their lives. Salaries aren't as high as in Canada but cost of living is actually way lower and you'd be living somewhere that doesn't actively make you hate your life.

    Arriving at Toronto airport, I thought I had landed in India. The security guard was a poojeeta who greeted me. The immigration officer was a poojeet. The taxi driver who solicited a ride was a... poojeet. I went to Tim Hortons, a coffee store, and the cashier was a poojeeta. Her brown feces-coated hands made my coffee and brought my donuts. I wonder if the poo I had stepped on came from a poojeet's anus. This country is a sea of brown people. If you want the Indian experience without visiting Mumbai, just take the TTC to downtown Toronto.

    The poojeets are everywhere. White people hide their kids from them.
