Previously, under the old system, there was a huge backlog. Now, with
the revised 38 NOC list, Sydney(Nova Scotia) immigration office is overwhelmed with applications. There might be a change again.
Beep! Beep! I just received my letter for medical checkup and my
interview is waived. Am I there already?
How come most of the houses for sale are damned old - some
before WWII? There are very few new houses(2 to 3 years) for sale.
Is it feasible to buy a piece of land and build a house on it? How is the property market for Edmonton and Calgary? Still piping hot?
Property agent get 1% commission like in Singapore?
There is a severe lack of accommodations in Fort McMurray, where
the oil sands is situated. I know the property price over there is
a bit crazy. Is building a hostel for the workers feasible? What kind of
amount $$ are we looking at?
If you want newer homes goto the agency websites eg, Royal Lepage, Codwell Banker or Century 21 etc. Or goto the realtors' websites. Or those private sales websites. You know the level of maturity of some Sinkees thus I won't posted their websites.If you want new house, goto the builders websites You just have to google.
If you got money it is feasible to buy your own land and build your own dream home. Bear in mind, who is going to build and pay for the road and utilities lines(gas electric water) to your house???
As far as I know, property agents get approx 7% for the first $100k and 2-5% for the next 100K and then the next 100k
Building a hostel in Fort Mac?? As I said before, if you got money it is feasible. Are you willing to compete with the oil companies for trades people to build your building???Do you know how much construction workers are paid in Fort Mac??Certainly not the same level abang Cheena or adik Bangla are earning in Spore. Building supplies have to be haul up there from Edmonton by semi trailers Are you willing to pay the freight charges?
I believe you're on the home stretch pending the result of your (and yours) medicals. Now do note that the COPR may take upto to 3 months after the submission of medicals to be issued BUT, the validity is upto 12mths from the medicals date.
Well, I do noticed that properties in Northern Edmonton are older than those in the South. However, they still look quite pretty (online) and appear to be in liveable condition and lower priced.
Fort McMurray is boomtown charlie now. Hence, all things being equal, you can expect to pay a premium for almost everything there.

Is it very expensive to demolish and build a new house?
CIC requested a Canadian Police Certificate from me.
I spent 4 years in Canada for my tertiary education.
I need a set of my fingerprints done by the S'pore police,
and send it to the RCMP,Ottawa,for verification.
Does anyone has similar request and experience to share?
medical checkup soon. I have already got my S'pore Police Clearance Certificate.
I have tried to get a set of my fingerprints from the local Vietnamese police
for my Canadian Police Clearance Certificate, but was given a merry-go-round. A Vietnamese liasion police officer said that my request is very ununsual, as they only fingerprinted criminals If I insist, I can approach
the Justice Office for approval, then submit this approval to the Vietnamese
police for consideration...blah..blah..lengthy wait and lots of payments(on the
table and under the table).
So, in conclusion, it's better for me to go back to S'pore to get
my set of fingerprints from the S'pore Police for my Canadian
Police Clearance Certificate's application.
