Re: Interested in immigrating to Canada from Mauritius?
Ud, you are right !
Only last summer, one of the best friends of my daughter left for Canada (one out off their "gang of 4")
Her parents had both a job here in Reunion, so it was not really a matter of "extreme financial urgency" but more or less of
Prices are often much higher here (islanders problems) and there is a lack in possibilities of climbing up the social ladder.
the gouvernement of Quebec in particular, also sends a promotion delegation here once a year at least. I guess they also show up in Mauritius.
They want to promote immigrants of native French speakers.
This couple, they had working contracts for 2 years before they left. Somewhere in Quebec.
Though, I doubt that they'll make it !
It easier for Reunionese to get around in Europe, and there, the temperatures are not that extreme.
And on our island the economical difference is not that big to Canada.
Though for Mauritians, I believe that it can be the chance of their lives. And many won't hesitate between the canadian cold and the few thousands roupies they can expect to earn for a job in Mauritius.
