I have to agree this blog is week. Please do your your research

https://blog.seedly.sg/how-migrate-o...ations-salary/
yeah it is not accurate at all

https://blog.seedly.sg/how-migrate-o...ations-salary/

The average salary in Australia would be $76,000 AUD. With the current exchange rate being 1 SGD=0.98 AUD, you would be earning approximately $77,550 SGD annually. Income tax for the average individual is approximately 45%, that means your take-home salary would be $ 41,800 AUD or $42,650 SGD.

based on an annual salary of 76k aud, the tax is 24% + , not 45% , that is such a lie !

Headed to Columbia College this summer

Anyone headed over to Columbia College in Vancouver this Summer? I'm heading over there for the Accelerated Secondary program, (and then proceeding to the University Transfer program for about a year or so) before having to come back and serve National Service. So fingers crossed the Visa application doesn't take too long. The plan is to go to BCIT after National Service and complete the Architecture and Building Diploma before proceeding to the Construction Management Degree and hopefully get PR there. Due to the applied nature of ABT, there's no transfer credit granted from UTP but that's fine with me, I will just take courses that I'm interested/ for self enrichment instead. Also, I heard that Columbia has had a recent influx of students from Dubai, Nigeria and Northern India (not that there's anything inherently wrong with that) ,does anyone have an idea of the demographics there currently?

Cheers!

VISA not an issue.
if U are above 12yrs old there is this thing known as exit permit and bond
https://www.cmpb.gov.sg/cmpb/before-...rmit-and-bond/
Provide bond:

The bond amount is S$75,000 or an amount equivalent to 50% of the combined annual gross income of both your parents for the preceding year, whichever is higher.
It is provided in the form of a Banker's Guarantee.

Hi Patryn33, thanks for the quick reply! Yep Iíve heard that the exit permit and bond is required. As for me, thankfully Iíll only need an Exit permit because a) My length of study is below 2years and b) Iím younger than my peers so thatís that! Been to Vancouver a couple of times now and funnily enough, got connected to a high school student from China during the Christmas break as we were both in the same Airbnb! So itís great in that Iíll know a few people when Iím there.

Cheers😊,
OJJ

since U have 6-7yrs to go b4 you graduate just keep your pulse on the immigration changes. how they classify job and award pts.
https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration...tion-code.html

Australia also making move to close some doors.
can't comment on BICT/ABT/UTP (not familiar with the acronym).

U may have to reach out to the international groups to find out demographics and meet some ppl. They may have something on social media.

Oh well i researched more and realised that canada seems to have fewer entry level jobs for engineers compared to sg:p

Their economy seems to have stagnated and youth unemployment at 16% is way higher than sg 7.7%

And apparently int studentswith pgwp hard to find job simply they are not pr lol...

Donít know your sources but here 11.5%, but that includes age 15 to 24. Statistics is in the details. Your source is comparing apples to apples?
http://www.statcan.gc.ca/daily-quoti...70908a-eng.htm

This 4 week old article states is major and job mismatch

whoops i saw wrongly - i saw the same website as yours but remember a different figure instead

my brain isnt working very well clearly

and when i took a look at jobsbank canada website, it claims that civil engineer job outlook in new brunswick is 3 stars out of 3:

https://www.jobbank.gc.ca/report-eng...p&s=2&source=8

But when i went on indeed.ca and wowjobs.ca i can barely find any civil engineering jobs there in the province especially for entry level jobs-___-

idk who to believe... makes me wanna somewhat consider going to UNB lol

well outlook does include experience ppl... not really outlook for newbies..
850 ppl working is civil and total indeed.ca posting has 28jobs. ~3%
anyway it is predictive how they measure I have no idea.

U can certainly move to the province to find job upon graduation.
British Columbia - showing over 350 posting on indeed
Ontario - over 800
Alberta - over 250
