How it's started...

So far as I was thinking about immigration to Canada for long time finally I sent my application package to Immigration Services in Sydney, Canada on March 17, 2010. May be I could wait more, but news I got on March 15, 2010 shook me up. Looking through forum regarding immigration to Canada in the site I noted that effective from April 10, 2010 Canadian government is going to change immigration procedures for skilled workers. And under new rules skilled workers will be required to submit EILTS results along with the application package. Currently, EILTS results is not required for the submission of the application package to Sydney. And it should be submitted to the Visa Office (embassy in Ankara) as a second step in the process. Therefore, believing that I can pass the exam in next months I decided to complete the forms and send them immediately to Sydney. Making a long story short I have filled the forms for me and my spouse and sent them to Sydney today at 12:30. Hope I'll remember this time forever. This is a start of new period in my and my family's life. The transition period is started. However, my son (he is 5 months) doesn't feel this for now.
My application has been delivered to the Immigration Office on March 23, 2010 at 15:27. 

As a second step I have sent my full package (application+documents required) to the embassy in Ankara, Turkey on August 5, 2010. Now I am waiting for AOR (Approve of Receipt).
Hope this period will pass smoothly! And our transition to Canadian will end with success. 

How and why?

Most popular question I am being asked regarding my decision to immigrate to Canada is "Why man, why? Why you? You have a self-made career, you are married i.e. you are successful person and you have everything you could desire". May be they are right, however, my decision was not so easy. Taking into account that passing successfully the immigration process and immigrating to Canada I will have to start everything from beginning, I could not make easy deceision on the immigration. But the starting point for me was August 29, 2009 - the day when I have seriously faced with the government authorities due to car accident. It took me lots of nervs (I was really unguilty) and finally I decided that I don't want that me or one of my family members to be in such situation in future. Then all action taken by the authorities started to burn me up and finally I had a nervous break-down. So, at the end I decided that I can not wait any more and I must leave this country as soon as possible. And I don't want to have any relations with the bitchy government authorities any more.
Believe me starting the date (March 15, 2010) I have sent my application package to the CIO in Sydney, Nova Scotia I have never regret about the decision I made. 

This is my little story why I have decided to immigrate...
