I'm a polish canadian! I was born in poland but immigrated with my family in 1989 when I was 4. I now live in a suburb in Toronto and love it here!

Also, there are plenty of Polish people in Mississauga, one of Toronto's neighbouring cities.

it is one of the coldest cities in Canada. If you like winter this is your country. 6 months of winter is definatelly something you should try and see for yourself. Most Canadians are not tha tcrazy with winters since they have to pu tup with it every year, but you seem to like it, so.....there are no visas to Canada for Polish citizens, so the door is open.

there are no visitors visas, but we still have to apply for a work permit or skilled worker visa which takes up to 2 years and is costly....

haha i'm here man! actually it feels like most ukrainians here have polish surnames, and most "average" canadians cant make any distinction between poles and ukrainians! i'm a little ukrainian as well but it seems that polish culture is wayyy overshadowed by all things ukrainian! just because the ukrainian community is much much larger

sorry miranda but all you have to do is check out the census of Winnipeg :P, the number of people who report as polish is much much smaller then the amount of people who report as being ukranian. that is because there was a greater immigration of ukrainians from Galicia at the start of the 1900's. it's not overboard , it's the truth. i wasnt saying that there are more ukrainians in the world, just more in winnipeg then there are poles. :)

Hello there,
my name is £ukaś, I'm originally from Gdanśk, my Family and I are trying to emigrate to Canada. We've checked all the points we can achieve, and we have chances over my father and the skilled worker program. He's a wood tecnology engineer, 52 jears old and has more than 25 jears experience in his profession.

Now we're searching for a job for him in Canada, we need an employer who would support us.
Can anybody here give us a tip?
My father can speak polish, german and a little bit english. We're all improving our language skills, actually, but most needed for us is a job for him.

We're thankfull for every hint.

hey everyone,
i live up in northern canada and I only know 2 other polish people here, most of them are all down in southern Canada where it's a bit warmer! I've lived in Canada most of my life and I came to this country when I was 4. I still go back to Poland quite often to visit family and would even consider moving back there if possible. I do wish I was closer to a Polish community, but this forum is pretty good, lots of interesting topics.

Zosia :)

Hi Sean,
where I live it's cold! but beautiful, the temperature today is -22 celsius! i think it's our first cold day of the winter.

you live near Krakow? How lucky! it's such a beautiful city, i have some family that live there and I try to visit Krakow when I visit Poland but I'm usually in Olsztyn, which is quite far from Krakow.

thanks for welcoming me!

I have never been to a Polish wedding sadly. I would love to go to one. I've been to plenty of Polish funerals though....

I love Olsztyn too, I miss it very much.

If you remember a Polish wedding then it means you didn't fully participate ;)
