The Point of View of a Canadian Immigrant

Posted on February 9, 2008 @ 9:47 am

While I was in college and studying to become a social worker, I had the opportunity of living a semester like I was an immigrant to Canada.  It was a great learning experience for me, as I was going to be working with immigrant families when I received my degree. I sat in on an Canadian Immigration Interview, so I would more fully understand how to prepare families for this type of thing.

I was even given a copy of the Canadian Citizenship Test to also help me be able to prepare families for this leg of immigration. I was surprised at how difficult it was, and was glad that I was given a copy, as I would have had no idea of how to prepare them for this.

I even got to have a copy of the written Ontario G1 test to help them prepare for acquiring a drivers license to drive in Ontario. This is important to help them to be able to commute for work. It was a great experience and I feel that I am better able to prepare them, now that I am finished my degree.
