Hi,

A guy with Canadian PR here. I'm not sure how long you can live & work in Canada with PSGW visa, but I'd highly recommend getting a PR if you want to work here.

I guess at the end of the day it all depends on where you want to work after getting your ATPL but unless you're planning on going back to India, I cannot emphasize the importance of obtaining a PR.

I'm sorry if I sounded harsh, it's just that I've seen a lot of students who spent tons of money on training only to realize they cannot find a place to work because they do NOT have the legal means to (PR, Visa, etc).

Cheers.

I agree. That is indeed the safest way to go.

Please keep in mind that I am speaking based on my own personal experience. There are probably people out there that had a good experience at Harv’s Air. After what I saw there I cannot personally recommend that school, however, everyone’s personal experience is different and you may end up having a completely different experience than I did. However I am happy to help you out with whatever info I can. [email protected]

Oh sure. I'm pleased. Thanks a lot Takira101.

Vancouver area is perfect flying weather from May to September. From September to May you will have very few VRF days. Lucky to get 2 to 3 flyable days a week, if that even. Manitoba area has much clearer weather. Lots of VFR days interrupted by the odd storm. Great flying weather if you can handle -20 degree weather. Unimaginable cold! Very difficult to live in such a climate but, if you can handle arctic weather, go for it. Ontario seems to be between the two. Much colder than Vancouver but less rain. More rain than Manitoba but less cold.

That's great input, thanks. Will look into it.

Hi,

I think one year of skilled work experience after graduation allows a student to apply for a PR. Kindly correct me if I'm wrong.

You should really become a Canadian permanent resident if you want to work here. The city of Toronto is now more than 50% non-caucasian, the largest group of those being from the Indian subcontinent. It's not as if every Indian person just gets a permanent resident card thrown at them at the airport when they arrive, but close.

I don't know. When I was planning for a career change to aviation, I decided it'd be best if I got the PR before I started flight training because I never wanted to expose myself to the uncertainty where all the time and money I've invested lies in the hands of my flight school - see how if they don't want you OR you don't like working as an instructor, you have no choice but to go back?

My 2 cents would be to try to get the PR before you log your first hour. I know not a lot of people can do this but it's so much better in terms of downside risk.
