Move from USA to Canada?
I am 28, have a wife (Medical Technologist) and a son. I have a BS in Aeronautics and an AS in Avionic technologies. I have been in the United States Air Force as an Integrated Electronics Specialist working for the Department of Defense for over nine years. I am very interested in moving to Canada, but do not understand if these are skills that are needed there. What would be my chances of getting a permanent residency in Canada with the education and electronics background I currently have? I am really infatuated by the unity Canadians seem to have, which differs greatly compared the selfishness that many Americans exhibit. Can anyone please give me an insight on the overall persona of Canada. I understand that it is cosmetically very similar to the USA, but is the mental attitude different in Canada? Please be honest as this is a serious question and thank you in advance.
