When is it time to start a new life in Canada?
The last thing we want to do is throw you out of your home, said Brandon Sallinger, 29, a former University of Toronto student who has lived in Toronto for the past three years.
“I don’t want you to think that we are going to throw you away and start a brand new life elsewhere,” he said.
“We want you here.”
The new family in Ontario will include his father, who lives in Calgary and his mother, who is based in London, Ont.
They are all registered in Ontario as dual citizens.
We have decided to put you in a different home.
Brandon Sargent, 28, says he is staying put and looking forward to moving to Canada soon.
I’m not going to say it’s a bad thing, but it’s just not my style, said Sargant, who will move to Calgary to study engineering.
For Sargart, who moved to Toronto from Alberta with his family two years ago, living in Canada is a good way to reconnect with family and friends and connect with his daughter, who attends a public school in Toronto.
It’s a good place to live, but not a good home, he said, adding he will still visit Canada frequently.
A new life is something I really want to experience and be a part of, Sargeth said.
You have to be able to do something else, like go shopping, go out, have fun and enjoy yourself.
Sargenty is hoping to find work in a variety of fields and plans to return to Calgary once his studies are finished.
The province is also considering a program to give Canadian citizens temporary residency status for three years, but no official date has been set.
