For me, Singapore is really a great place to live, earn and save money. That is why I tried to apply for a Permanent Resident (PR) status here in Singapore. But, it seems that my qualification is not enough for the eye of the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority in Singapore.
Life is all about luck, destiny and perseverance, but I don't have those as of the moment, and I'm not getting any younger. The need of having an option B is taking my side now.
After knowing the result of my Singapore PR application, which is REJECTED, I then decided to take a new path. This is not a path for me but also for my family. Of course, I need to be with them and I cannot do it anymore in Singapore.
If I really want to, I have to apply for the long term or student visa for my wife and kids. I don't think I can still survive for that here. That would be a different story.
What is My New Path?
Few days ago, I started my new path. This is a long time dream, to be in Canada.
The Canadian Immigration opened their country for foreign skilled workers to apply for a Permanent Residence outside Canada. It has been years since it was implemented. But, from time to time, they provided a set of new rules.
For this year 2013, they have another set of immigration rules. This is what they call the Federal Skilled Worker (FSW).
What is a Federal Skilled Worker?
A foreign skilled worker, provided that he has a 1-year experience of one of the 24 occupations listed by the Canadian Immigration as of May 4, 2013, and some other basis for the education, age, language and adaptability, if found eligible, he can apply for the Federal Skilled Worker immigration program of Canada.
It so happened that my job here in Singapore is a perfect match to the one of the 24 occupations list. This might be luck or the start of my destiny?
So I prepared all our documents as a requirement for the Canadian FSW. I made a new blog that will be my guide and also to those who are willing to move to Canada. My new website is:
At this website, I will be posting the latest status of my application and also some tips on how to prepare the documents and everything related to Canada.
Some of the applicants asked for the help of the immigration agents, but I don't think it's a must. Anyway, please visit my new site and you are free to leave some questions and maybe share some views about my journey. Let's do it!!!
