HOW TO BECOME SUCCESSFUL IN CANADA
New country – new rules
Successful immigrants understand that they need to adapt. Adapt means change. Canada is a different country. If you want to be successful here, you will need to play ‘Canadian game’. And for that, you need to learn the rules of this new game.
Some things you don’t need to change. You can eat any food you like, you can sing any songs you like and you can celebrate any holidays you like. But when looking for a job, meeting new people or looking to start a business, you need to know Canadian culture.
Canada is a highly individualistic, egalitarian country, where being able to communicate very politely, yet assertively, is really valued. Most immigrants come from collective, highly hierarchical countries, and it often takes them a long time to learn to play the ‘Canadian communication game’ and become successful.
