THIS IS MY STORY

Welcome  to my world of from Jamaica to

Canada.

We started off our online dating thinking,

 being in a long-distance relationship would be easy but nothing in life comes easy an in-person relationship is challenging also a long-distance which comes with more unseen challenges.

 

It was a big challenge at the time my husband

didn't have as much income at that time

which creates a lot of challenges for us.

Visting would be long and very short because of his vacation time. I just got to say thank God we made it through. 

 

My husband started the Spousal sponsorship process a couple of months after getting married, and my husband started the application form without telling because we discuss I had strong doubts I was not a good fit for Canada because I dread the cold. We debated things like what if he could live in Jamaica instead of me having to move. He had to visit me and help me with the application and also he came back to see me get my COPR which is like a letter that's stamped with a visa-like statement to get a visa to travel to Canada and use it while you await your Permanent Residence card after you have arrived in while in Canada. The application really took like 4 or 5months.

As a Jamaican immigrant with little skill or professional experience and a college drop out. The new journey for me was a little completed most Canadian is either college-trained or seeking to enter university.

So entering the job market means going back

to school or applying to any job as long as it

gets you to be Canadian trained or have some

form of Canadian experience.

Even though they are services to get help with new immigrants most people really don't use these services. 

Most new immigrant services offer career

advice, job referral, and offer classes for

cheap or free to all new immigrants and

Canadian. This service can be found online

on the Canadian immigration Citizen website.

WWW.CIC.Ca

I tried out a few myself got little to no results all I got was a lot of paperwork in most places so my husband suggested I try a job agency.

The rejection was common and you could either give up or keep going. I got a job from one of the local job agencies in Toronto in which the job would be temporary.

Also, the new immigrant agency call about a week after to ask me if I found any job. I replied yes, they said they have to take me off their application since I found a job. Once you get a job they will take you off their newcomer program sadly and you will have to sign up again if you need assistance after 6months. 

I got a second job from another job agency wasn't a full-time job and to tell the truth, I kind of hated maybe hate is too strong but I just dint quite like the job. It those routine jobs which mentally I couldn't manage it was just too robotic for my state of mind and there were a lot of downtimes which can become very stressful to have no work to do.

 I went on to find jobs in the movies as a Film Extra I really enjoy that job but it wasn't stable and since the pandemic. Only had like one job since the pandemic.

My last option is to start a business or attend school to get some Canadian education which has been my first target since I came to Canada. Not sure if that a good idea at my age with kids. I just have to say to be continued...

About

I am a Jamaican from one of the hidden gems in Jamaica and the Caribbean. Guess where, if you said Port Antonio, Portland you are so right. if you didn't say Port Antonio well maybe you need to learn about this place in Jamaica but not worry you are in the right place. I will be sharing a little about where I am from also on this website.

 

 My website will mainly focus on me sharing my experience in Ontario so if anyone who wants to migrate or even visit Ontario specifically Toronto and is applying for spousal sponsorship they can ask me some questions relating to my spousal sponsorship experience. Hopefully, this blog would give you some pros and cons of what it feels like being a

new immigrants in Canada specifically in Ontario, Toronto.

 

My goal is to help someone who might be thinking of migrating to Ontario with some of the hacks and tips I have learned so far.  

 

I am not an immigration lawyer or an immigration consultant so it will be my own real-life experience.

 

We did our sponsorship with no lawyer but we did get some help from a family friend she works at the UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO, Canada.

 

If you would like me to contact her drop

me a message at ssparkesconnell@outlook.com/Or @sjamaicanismtoronto@gmail.com.
