Hi guys, I moved to Ontario a few days ago and I'm still in the process of getting settled. I know quite a few members on here live there so any job referrals would be appreciated. I'm in IT.

Bud get yourself signed up on LinkedIn then reach out and connect with all fellow IT ppl you know here in TO or Merica. Build your credibility. Hardest phase is now. Don't get distracted and end up in factory if you can afford it. Eat some milk and rice if you need to - worth it in long run. Took me 9 months when I got here too.

Lots of Ontario residents on this message board. Would be nice to have a get together of some sort.


That would mean a few persons losing their anonymity. So then again, that would be a bad idea.?????

Wackie is in IT. Not sure if he lives in Scarborough but I’m fairly confident he lives somewhere in the GTA

Drive east to Pickering and check out Island Mix. Good vibe there

As you’re in Scarborough, you can also check out Roland’s if it still around

Unless he moved, he is way way way out west. Like past Guelph west.

Moved to Ajax, I think.

Windies at Bellamy and Lawrence or Tropical Nights at Morningside and Sheppard are good places to hang out and nyam some West Indian food.

Scarborough not too bad depending on the area, mi been up here going 15 years now.
Regarding IT positions: I hear Indeed is the best site to find IT jobs in the GTA.
