In general, I believe that the answer to this question really depends on the immigrant that you are interviewing because different immigrants have different experiences (different factors or reasons for why they immigrated to Canada and how they felt after coming to Canada because different immigrants have different opinions about Canada as a country).

My father and my mother discussed that it was better for the future of their children if they immigrated or traveled to another country that was very peaceful and a perfect place to live in. After some research on the best countries to immigrate to, my parents finally decided to immigrate to Canada. On March 11th, 1999, my dad received a letter stating that he got a recommendation from a large company in Canada as a senior project engineer. He was elated and was very excited because good things were happening and this gave him hope that his immigration to Canada will be successful.

My parents didn’t eat a lot of the food on the airplane because they didn’t really enjoy it (they just managed with butter and toast and coffee). After seven hours, they finally arrived at Pearson Airport and they were amazed by how beautiful the airport looked (Dhaka airport’s structure wasn’t as modernized as Pearson Airport’s structure). They booked a room at a nearby hotel and stayed there for a week. On the way to the hotel, my elder brother was looking out the window constantly at the highways and the large hotels because the cities in Bangladesh weren’t as modernized and didn’t look so new. My elder brother and my parents stayed at a hotel for a week and then one of my father’s close friends arranged an apartment at 10 Teesdale Place for them.
