As a Thai immigrant in Canada you are already at a better position than other foreigners. Thai peoples have a few added bonuses thanks to the recent relation developments between the two countries. This is the main reason why Thais didn’t have to struggle hard for establishing a healthy and happy lifestyle in Canada.
It doesn’t matter if you are living in different Canadian cities, there are only a few things you need to be a successful person. Below you can find a few key points on how to be successful in Canada as a Thai immigrant.
1. Fluent Language
The most important thing to be successful in any profession is good communication skill. If you have mastered the Canadian language and are fluently able to express your points precisely you have already covered half the road to success. There are various courses available to help you in learning the language. Some of the ESL Courses are being offered for free for the immigrants. Even if your language is great and people still can’t understand you, try the range of courses out there for correction of your accent.
2. Be Positive
This might not need to be said, but being positive is a main factor to be successful. In the start of your journey in establishing a new life you will come across scenarios where you’ll meet disappointment. This does not mean that you give up working or communicating to people. Be positive and keep trying until you achieve the success you are hoping for.
3. Embrace The Changes
Relocating to a new country would change your life immensely. Instead of getting cross for not having your local bar around or the different cultural activities, try to get along with the new lifestyle. Embrace the changes and admire the beauty of it all. Make new friends and establish good relations with your neighbourhood. No doubt that you will still miss your old life back home, but the dreams and the sheer awe inspiring natural beauty of Canada will make you fall in love with it.
4. Keep A Backup Plan
Although focusing on one thing is a good value, but as an immigrant looking for an entirely new lifestyle in a foreign country it is important to always have a backup plan. In some cases even after having done everything possible, success does not greet our doors. So having an alternative option would help you to be financially stabilize and would give you time to process things instead of crashing directly into a negative place where you’ll need to go back home.
5. Don’t Stay In Ethnic Silos
Many immigrants try to find societies where all the other immigrants from the same country have made home. The places follow their country culture and with time would have made a little Thailand in Canada. Do not look to stay with these ethnic silos as this will only inhibit your development and in cases where you would have to travel across Canada you might end up making no friends without the local language or Canadian lifestyle.
