Canadians report in, how do we make a living in this country? The economy has completely collapsed, there's very little employment opportunities, taxes are high as fuck, government regulations make entrepreneurship near impossible. Our economy has been reduced to scamming foreigners for tuition money and selling overpriced shit quality houses, the only stable employment is working for the government. Is the only option escaping to America or the UK?

Born here, family lives here. My entire father's side of the family is big into agricultural business and they make some hard cash from it. I don't really see any of that money, though, so it's not like I'm sitting on a fat inheritance or trust fund.

Though everyone in my family seems to 'wish they hadn't settled down in Saskatchewan' it's not worth moving for them, not just for business reasons but for being so close to family.

Most people drink or do drugs. I live in one of the bigger cities but that isn't saying much. Everyone I've met who comes from Regina is a degenerate, no exceptions so far. Fair warning to any Canadians here.

There is reliable internet, stores, etc. It's not so different, though lots of small towns scattered around. There is very little to do in terms of entertainment/big stores opening up, though, because
1) our economy sucks so we're stingy with dollerydoos
2) not a high enough population in any given place to have adequate amount of customers, for the most part

Everyone who does something with themselves leaves. Cabelas (sports/hunting store) is pretty popular.

People here are kind of like hicks in my honest opinion. Not super progressive

Yeah fucking right.

We haven't taken a single refugee from Ukraine into Canada. In fact I heard 0 talk about it whatsoever. I was actually thinking about this earlier.

But now refugees from Syria? SIGN US UP BRO. Such a fucking joke our retarded government was dead-set on taking into 25k syrian refugees in a little over a month but now decided to just take 10k and take the rest later. Even though there's been huge commotion over how it's hard to screen them in such little time.

Maybe if you pretended to be a Syrian refugee... Who was gay. Yeah our government only wishes to take Syrian women and child now... And gay men. Now sure how they'll check if you're gay though, I think the officials might bent over to let the refugees fuck them in the ass for proof of homosexuality.

What? All the good companies are in the US, they have MUCH higher salaries as well as plenty more jobs.
Their healthcare actually treats you more or less immediately rather than in Canada where you wait for 8 hours in the emergency room or 5+ months for an MRI or a specialist.

>-Most of Europe is taking in more refugees
True

Wasn't talking about them
>-Middle East/Asia are shit central
Yes agreed

>You're probably just a useless unemployable NEET DESU, please leave this country, we don't want you

You're the one that's probably a NEET. If you think our economy isn't completely fucked.

Tell me one industry in Canada that isn't completely fucked. Everything is crumbling, there's no jobs because no one wants to start a company here and WE PRODUCE NOTHING. Nothing at all, all the good jobs are overseas, which is where most of our student head for co-op, and grads head for fulltime employment.

DID YOU KNOW how many Canadians leave Canada?

Here's something for ya.
>As of a 2010 report by the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada, there were 2.8 million Canadian citizens abroad (plus an unknown number of former citizens and descendents of citizens). For comparison, that is a larger population than six of the ten Canadian provinces. More than 9% of all Canadian citizens live outside of Canada. That compares to 1.7% of Americans, 2.6% of Chinese citizens, 3.3% of French citizens, 4.3% of Australians, 9% of British citizens, and 21.9% of New Zealanders.[1]

More than 4x as many Canadian citizens live outside of Canada. Gee I wonder why. It can't be... BECAUSE IT'S A FUCKING SHITHOLE FAGGOT COUNTRY

Toronto fag here

I was making 18.25/hr operating forklift/reachtruck at a big distribution centre. Worked up to 60 hours a week so I got a fuck ton of overtime.

I've gone back to school to learn machining/ tool & die. My buddy makes 80k a year just operating a CnC machine in the Toronto area.

My tool & die professor came back from Mexico. He says Canadian aerospace, and auto companies are sending Canadian machinists, mill wrights, tool and die guys down to Mexico, and they're all just banking money.

My professor was doing some sort of laser lining with a Canadian aerospace manufacturer in Mexico, and he was getting over $80 bucks an hour, and was allowed to work up to 80 hours a week.

It's the new oil sands for Canadians.

You've got to complete your apprenticeship first, and get your "journeyman" ticket. Otherwise companies won't consider you for these jobs.

Honestly, if you live in the Greater Toronto area, just get a forklift job right after highschool, and do that until you figure out what you want to do with your life.

I live in Vancouver, live 2 blocks from English bay with a kickass view of the mountains and ocean and have a kickass euro girlfriend who cooks me breakfast on our days off.

and really "HALF" of the pop is Chinese or Indian? Fuck off. THere are a lot of ching chongs here but its still mostly white. Surrey and the outlying areas do have loads of brown people though.
>>
>>973753
>also healthcare is shit
I'm not a fucking fatass and the only time I've ever been in a hospital when I was born. Any time I need to see a doctor I can get in within a few days and I'm on my way.
>>
>>973760
>and really "HALF" of the pop is Chinese or Indian?

It certainly feels like it at least in Ontario.

Pretty high in Vancouver tho, and it's not slowing down any time soon. Pic related.
Also Chinese investors keep buying up homes which doesn't allow ACTUAL Canadians living in this country to afford to buy a home.

>>973757
>You smoke weed, and jack off to kek porn in your mom's basement.
But I don't do either of those.

>What the fuck are you doing to improve your situation?
What am I suppose to be doing? Lynching shitskins?
I can't change our retarded prime minister, our sky-high taxes or our terrible economy which our government put all our chips into oil for a decade.
>>
>>973763
>I'm not a fucking fatass and the only time I've ever been in a hospital when I was born. Any time I need to see a doctor I can get in within a few days and I'm on my way

So if I get injured I'm just suppose to bleed to death in the emergency room of a supposedly first world country?

And appointments for specialists are usually AT LEAST 3 months, there has been reputable studies done showing that the wait times in Canada to see a specialist has often times either put the patient at significant risk of worsening their condition, or actually worsening it and requiring further treatment.

WHAT THE FUCK am I paying such high taxes for when I don't even get to use the healthcare?
>>
>>973767
So you're doing nothing. That's what I thought.
>>
>>973770
>So you're doing nothing. That's what I thought.

Ya, and some specialized school who live off subventions by spreading this kind of messages, like trucking school crying about trucker shortage but when you look at job offers there is very few and ask 5-10 years experience and low wage. A friend of mine told me he asked his company (trucking) to do a bit less hours (they pushed him beyond the regular 70h/week) and they told him that if he don't want to work there is 10 guys behind the fence waiting to take his place.

And even specialized job are getting lower wages now, they pushed so much for people to go to school that now there is a too high ratio of graduates compared to the available jobs. So instead of having 2 bachelors for one spot now there is 20.

I said that we shouldn't hire people, ESPECIALLY TO GOVERNMENT POSITIONS just to make it gender balanced. Women should be hired because they're the best for the job, not because we have too many men somewhere.

Enforcing a gender balanced cabinet only hurts both men and women, because now when a woman is chosen people have to question whether she earned it by her own merit, or just to fulfill a gender quota.

I've never been more proud of this country. We are dedicated to showing the world that we are a welcoming, inclusive nation of open minded, loving people, who are committed to climate change. The truth is these refugees are a net benefit to our society -- literally every expert had been saying this on CBC. Syrian refugees are less likely to commit terrorism than our own home grown Muslims. That goes to show, even in 2015, we have a long way to go to make this group feel more welcome.

Canada is choosing to make a bold statement as our neighbors to the south bicker over a measly 10k refugees. Please America, let us take them for you since you're obviously too bigoted to show any compassion. They will become Canadians. And they will be treated like Canadians. After all, in the words of the newly christened prime minister Justin Trudeau "a Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian. Sunny ways friends, sunny ways".

>>976840
Idk senpai... When I think about it, in theory Laurier BBA should be like top-tier only second maybe to Queen's or something.

For several reasons:
1) More scholorships, lots of free dough(cheaper tuition by a lot than Ivey or Queen's Commerce)
2) Has much better co-op than any other biz school, let alone ivey, schulich or Queens which don't have it at all. Much better for money(graduate with little to no debt) AND like a year of experience which makes up for any prestige loss compared to other schools
3) Is actually not that bad, at least by linkedin stats for IB it's tied with McGill and above Ivey/Schulich, pic in my post here: >>976337

It really seems p good tbqh. Just the co-op reason seems sufficient since getting actual exp before graduating should help tons...
>>
>>976840
>>976847
So basically...
Queens:
>graduate at least like $60k in debt(need line of credit + osap i think)
>minimal work experience(summer or if I get into internship)
>One of most reputable school

>Graduate with positive dosh thanks to all the free dosh, cheaper tuition and co-op

if you do, you will probably have to live in Vancouver or Victoria, both of which are incredibly expensive cities.

however, living here is really nice, and if you live in the countryside or a smaller city you don't have to put up with astronomical housing prices.

>>
>>977019
went to UFT for polisci and law, degrees from uft look much better and are a lot more well known, the school was alright but most employers seem to think it's the highest standard of academia.

Our tuition prices are indeed lower; but you are probably going to end up paying more in the end because of the fucking insane cost of living in Vancouver
>>
>>977026
>because of the fucking insane cost of living in Vancouver

How much is it?

Ontario isn't much lower in most places I'd imagine. Also is SFU a meme? Should I only go to UBC
>>
>>977033
SFU is decent for science and technology, but a degree from it is definitely not as good looking as one from UBC.

The cost of living is pretty crazy in Vancouver, be prepared to pay 1.4K a month for a glorified closet if you can land a good deal. if you live in or near down-town Vancouver, it's pretty realistic to pay anywhere between 4-7K a month just on living expenses.

If you really want to study here, then find a room-mate, and ideally go to UBC

>Also, yeah UBC has a pretty strong leftie bias, but it seems almost all the prestigious universities in Canada do.

Kinda sucks dude, why is it always like that?

UofT is practically India and the feminists run a muck.
I think it was last year or a few years ago where feminists wouldn't let people into a lecture by a professor who supposedly said "misogynist things" and they were just yelling like harpies at people trying to hear what he had to say.
>>
>>977077
My guess for Universities being far-left is just due to them being government institutions. And the Gender studies and African American studies professors probably have a lot more time to butter up the administration than more important departments.

Luckily I took law at UFT, and law professors won't put up with shit like that
>>
>>977085
I always wonder though, do gender studies and african studies majors even ever get hired?

Outside of becoming a professor I can't really think of a single job for them, why isn't that major just removed because all graduates realize they will never be employed?

>>977090
For gender studies, I guess they could possibly get a job at a shelter for abused women or something of the sort, but it still seems like a pretty much worthless degree,

I'm guessing they don't want to remove it because they are afraid of the backlash from those students, as most of them barely have to do any work as a result of being in a fucking pointless course.
Universities can push around the Sciences,Legal, Financial and engineering students around all they want because they normally have to actually do work, so there is no fear of retaliation.

I doubt there really is any redpilled universities,however, I have known a few red-pilled professors IRL though, usually it's Econ, Science or law teachers that are most red-pilled in my experience

Just got a decent paying job (60k CAD) with full benefits and pension. I'm 21 and still live at home paying no rental expenses other than my car insurance and phone bill.

However, the drive to work is an hour each way. Should I just suck it up and save my income until I could afford a condo or house? I feel like owning a house or condo would be expensive especially because of the maintenance fees. I also read somewhere that the cost of living ratio is too high for Canadians. Would it make more sense just to get an apartment?
>>
>>977814
>Would it make more sense just to get an apartment?

Yes.

Houses are like $1million at the very least in Toronto, a bit less in other places in Ontario though. The amount of opportunity cost you would lose out on with your down-payment, interest on mortgage, property tax and maintenance costs would be incredibly unworth it.

Much better off buying meme funds and renting an apartment.

We are overpopulated. 15% youth underemployment, middle of a recession. Plus it's not like they're putting them in the underpopulated provinces, they're going into the ones where we have enough people.

Also refugees will likely never contribute and will pretty much indefinitely remain on social services. If our own Canadians can't find jobs how are a bunch of people from a war-torn part of the world where they can't speak good, if any English going to get jobs?

Definitely not anywhere near the current market prices.

I am a NEET faggot but I've done some reading on Canadian housing and all that and there is a pretty strong consensus that homes are overvalued at the highest, or close to the highest rate in the world. No other countries has homes as overvalued as Southern Ontario/Vancouver area.

They probably think that Queens/Ivey will get them into Wallstreet when the best you can hope for from a Canadian Uni is the Toronto office of the banks on Bay street.

They hire like 5 people for memaystreet from Canada and if you're shitposting on 4chan most likely you're not going to be the top of your school.

Holy fuck pham. Really? Where did you work at...

And I wish i could get into UW for compsci man. Do they accept transfer students? I didn't bother applying because i got some retakes and shit and I didn't do the euclid or anything so it looks utter shit. I would suck at least 5 admissions cocks if I could go there though.

In SF. I lived at an online friend's (minecraft ayy lmao) house who's from there and his parents are established in tech. Most people I know rent a place in downtown core for like 2k for a shitty room split with 3 people so I got lucky.

My transfer was internal so it's probably easier, though still kinda hard (most others I know that tried the switch ended up just dropping out). It's near impossible to switch to CS here with co-op if you're already in second year or beyond.
>>
>>981126
smdh.

Well my plan is to keep learning programming memes as a hobby and to keep studying Finance as a "day job". Seems pretty smart since I could earn dosh and potentially even get a job as a software developer in enough time, if i get bored with memeance.

I'm practicing my C++ pham but it's kinda hard

This nigga knows whats up, Waterloo CompSci is great for US jobs. I did a four month co-op at IBM in Canada (basically as prestigious as you can get), and was getting $23 kekbucks/h. Had a drink with a new grad and he told me they started him off $30 kekbucks/h.

Did my next co-op at NVIDIA in CA, was getting 8k/month, green benjamins, not kekbucks. Feelsgoodman.jpg

I didn't do the Euclid. It honestly doesn't matter. You don't have to be a math genius to get into undergrad CS here, though it helps and there are definitely a good number of autists here that wreck everyone else in academia.
Where ever you are now though, it's probably fine. Get your portfolio up, make shitloads of stuff, contribute to open source projects, and make more stuff. Show your passion and people will notice.

>>981130
Ye, I honestly feel like IBM is the filter for all the SF jobs. Everyone I know that's in SF has been through IBM. What year/program are you?

Not really man, if I had to do it again I'd do my co-op at LoyaltyOne or similar... pretty certain its more glamorous than grunt tooling work. I graduated last year.

>Where ever you are now though, it's probably fine. Get your portfolio up, make shitloads of stuff, contribute to open source projects, and make more stuff. Show your passion and people will notice

I'm not studying CS though. Just doing it for fun and as a potential way of earning dosh in the future.

In theory it should be possible to earn both dosh from Finance job and programming some memay right? And I figure I could probably even switch careers later on if I got a nice portfolio of work done, opensource projects, paid work, etc.

fammm should I try to reach UWaterloo economics then and do that? Seems like it would be super easy and great. Do they even let you apply for co-op outside your major?

The difference is on graduation they make 6 figures while you are still at 19/hr
>>
>>983093
You are 100% correct. I got lucky and will probably be able to earn a lot during my co-op terms. However, I would be in no way able to pursue a cs career (nor do I want to). I would not recommend others attempt what I did, it is rare for engineering jobs to be taken by non engineers. I got lucky and shit posted about it, if you want to do software or cs you should actually go to school for them.

>>983147
a cs career is shit anyways

if you stay technical you'll be making 100k for the rest of your life, 200k MAX unless you go into research

go into management and you'll be stuck in middle management having to kiss ass like business fags while not having any people kissing yours because they're all autistic technical people

From what I've heard/read 88's a bit low and might get declined as even low 90's averages have been known to not get accepted sometimes.

EC's would definitely make up for a bit lower marks. You applying to UofT st.george or Scarborough/Mississauga? It would definitely get you into any besides UTSG.
>>
>>973480
what the maximum age to get in?
>>
>>983975
What ECs are specifically wanted? Does it have to be school related stuff? Could it be stuff like hobbies? Also, included those schools in my applications because ive heard of people being accepted in the past with mid 80s, and their websites even say that the admission average is a high 80

>What ECs are specifically wanted?
UWaterloo mentions taking the Euclid as being beneficial for applications. Anything really but preferably math related(maybe participating in a chess club or something is one i can think of)

>Does it have to be school related stuff?
Not sure but what I'm saying is that if they see someone with 88 average + some EC's versus someone with 92 average no EC's they would probably pick the 88 average one.

UTM and UTSC are definitely less prestigious than UTSG, and arguably worse in terms of shitskin-content, co-op programs, marking curve(some have said this is a nightmare at UTSC), etc.

Ok but as i said i got off to a bit of a rough start, but i can definitely get it to a low 90 by the time the final marks are submitted during midterm 2nd semester.

Do you know someone who has been rejected with a low 90 to u of t comp sci?

The refugees will do that for us. Then we can all deport them once they complete the mission.

>>983987
>So assuming i do that, is there anything else i can do to improve my chances of acceptance?

No not really. Only Queen's McMaster and some other school have supplementary essays.

>Also, what is your source for the chances of being admitted? Do you know someone who has been rejected with a low 90 to u of t comp sci?

A friend or two getting rejected and also hearing the general average of people accepted. Also reading memeforums like redflagdeals, studentawards, etc.

Good luck pal.
>>
>>983991
Alright thanks then
>>
>>983987
Waterloo is 95+ for SE last year, but CS is usually a couple of points lower. CS values math more than side projects, so do the Euclid and CCC if it's not already over. Otherwise just lie on your aif or pray your high school gets adjusted.

Don't know about UofT but I would think it didn't rise as much there since it's larger.

I got early acceptance on a 92 without supplementaries, even though it was 3 years ago, so your high school matters.
>>
>>984004
Not him of course but do you happen to know anything about transferring to UWaterloo compsci or applying with retakes? I heard they look down on both very strongly since they consider UW much stronger than other schools(rightfully so).
>>
>>984004
Yeah ive just been looking at the admissions website and some other forums and it appears that they don't care about extra curriculars so much at u of t, and i've seen several people say they got accepted with a mid-high 80
>>
>>984011
>i've seen several people say they got accepted with a mid-high 80

At St. George campus? Hmm that's quite contrary to what I've seen.

And yeah a lot of schools don't care about EC's, it's only a few that do but I was just saying that it would really help if your marks are a bit lower.
>>
>>983994
>>984011
Oh by the way, try asking r/uoft and r/uwaterloo about admissions if you haven't.
>>
>>984014
Theres some reddit and other threads with people saying that. Also it appears that the program has become a lot more competitive in the past couple years, so that could explain the change in admission averages to stg. I dont care so much about waterloo, mainly i just want to get into st george at u of t. If all else fails tho, i applied to guelph and carleton as a backup
>>
>>984019
>Also it appears that the program has become a lot more competitive in the past couple years, so that could explain the change in admission averages to stg

Oh absolutely. Marks have gotten very inflated so now there's tons with 90+ averages since they can "cheat" using private school courses and such.

>I dont care so much about waterloo, mainly i just want to get into st george at u of t

Nah bro you don't.

UofT compsci is nothing special, it's obviously good and internationally well-known but it's not amazing. UWaterloo is by far the best both in ranking but even just the co-op is GOD-TIER. You basically graduate UW compsci with 2 years of relevant exp and quite a bit of money while others are in debt to the tune of ~$50k.
>>
>>984023
>UWaterloo is by far the best both in ranking but even just the co-op is GOD-TIER.
Yeah i sort of accept that, but i dont think i can honestly expect to get in. Realistically, I think i have a good shot at st george if i can get to a low 90. But i guess ill just have to wait to find out

You can transfer fairly easily from math (math co-op, if you want cs co-op), you just need to meet certain grade requirements in 1st year, so you can try that instead. Anyone can take the 1st year CS courses too, so you won't be behind. I don't know about external transfers.

>>984023
I don't know how UofT is, but I find 4th year courses at Waterloo are really lacking. We have good low-level things like compilers, real-time, or the computer engineering courses. We have like three profs who teach graphics which is nice.

Meanwhile we have weak or no AI, computer vision, computational linguistics, or speech/language processing, courses. Our HCI course is more about how to do user testing than doing something interesting like haptics or AR.

I agree that 1st and 2nd year are spectacularly rigorous though, which is what makes students good at co-op.

>>984027
As above, if you are confident you can do well in university, then you can also try going into math and then transfer.

You can ask uoft but uwaterloo is just shitposting

It's a worthwhile investment if you're even mildly driven and want to get in on the burgeoning new tech industry in the north-west of England.

A Computer Science/IT related degree can take you almost anywhere you want to be [as long as you're not a lethargic cunt].
