Question: I have to write an essay about some of Canada's defining and nation-building moments from 1914 to present day, explaining how Canada was changed and what the event tells others about the country. One nation-building moment I already found was when Canadian General Arthur Currie took lead in the battle of Vimy Ridge. But that's all I know so far! Could anybody help me out and explain some defining moments? Thanks

- Second and Third Battles of Paeschendaele - Battle of Arras and the crossing into German held Territory (Canada made it futher than any other allied force in WW1). - Canada's Hundred Days WW2 - Ortona - Juno Beach - Crossing of the Rhine - Liberation of Amsterdam Two referenda, Calgary Olympics, Montreal Olympics, Expo 67. If you're a Westerner you'll see the Reform Party and the Rise of the Conservatives meaning the "West is in" as a defining moment, like I do. If you're an Easterner you'll piont to Quebec choosing to stay. No matter wher eyou are in this land, there's lots of defining moments. We should learn more of our military history.. it bothers me that we don't. Most Canadian students don't know anything about our past, and that's unacceptable.

So the first step is being accepted at a university in Canada for your desired course. Once accepted (which can take upwards of a year depending on the school) you would apply for a student visa. Using today's timeline once applied for a student visa takes nine weeks for the London visa office based on receipt of a complete package in about 80 percent of the cases. After you complete your studies, or while studying you may apply for a work permit in Canada. If you complete your studies; obtain employment and meet certain criteria you could submit an application for permanent residence under the Canada Experience Class. The processing time for the permanent residence application at this time not counting for your study/work time is 13 months, again taking into consideration the caveat on the completeness etc. If you are studying in Canada and then apply for your work permit there will be variations on what you need prior to the permit being issued depending on the type of work/program for students chosen. The links below provide some points to start research. The last is to consider seeking a nomination through a province which might move the permanent residence process on a bit faster.

You are a graduate of LAW school and need the laws explained? You can apply for admission to a Canadian Law school if accepted you apply for a study visa. If you graduate you MAY then have the possibility to apply for jobs in your field that are in high demand in Canada and do not have Canadians suitable for the position. At the same time you would need to apply for a temporary work visa. The length of this visa is no longer than the time you were in school in Canada. You MAY be able to apply for a more permanent arrangement. Your application MAY be approved. Canada does not use the go to school get permanent residence program for issuing visas. Suggest after getting a Masters of law degree you should be able to answer the question of what you do next if you want to stay in Canada.

1914 is an odd cut off date seeing as the most defining moment was IMO was the war of 1812. Part of your education is learning how to research effectively and obtain and process information from reliable sources. If you are not able to do that you will be educationally challenged for the rest of your life. You are learning NOTHING, you are asking people to do your homework for you and then just copying what they tell you. This is NOT how you become educated, and it is going to have a SEVERE impact on your exam results, (students who do this regularly fail their exams), and it will have a severe negative impact on your future. When you become an adult you cannot rely on other people to perform your job duties for you. WHY do you not want to become an educated person instead of a copycat? Being lazy now is going to cost you BIG time in the future.

There are numerous ways and it really all depends on where you want to work. French is an excellent idea if you plan on working in New Brunswick, Quebec (obviously) or with the RCMP. It won't hurt anywhere else either. Being physically fit is a good bonus. I would suggest Jujitsu, Judo or other martial arts that teach things like wrist locks, grappling, and other open hand techniques. Boxing is good but Police tend to try not to get into a fist fight. They teach you things at the academy anyway, so no need before you go, its just a bonus. To be honest, the most useful courses I have taken were English and typing. You do alot of paperwork and these courses are a major asset. Any computer courses are also beneficial. You don't need anything specific, they will give you all the courses you need at the academy, but the courses I mentioned may help you personally If you plan on University first, there is a Bachelor of Community Studies (BACS) program that Police like to see. There are several ways to become an officer. Again, it depends on where you are and where you want to work. Many agencies do their own training such as Edmonton, Calgary, Quebec, Ontario Provinical Police, Toronto Metro, Halifax Regional and Royal Newfoundland Constabulary to name a few. Some of these pay you while you attend, others may not. The training received here is only recognized by the department offering it, however, after working for 5 years, you can apply to other departments. Then there is Police Academy. I know of on in BC, the Justice Institute I believe and in PEI, Holland College. You pay for the training, then get hired after graduation. Almost every department on the East Coast recognize their training (with the exception of Newfoundland) and some out West. I am not sure about the Justice Institute. Then there is the RCMP. They do their own training at Depot and you can be posted anywhere in the country. You also have to do some time up North at some point in your career. Again, pay depends on where you are. Most of the major departments make decent money. You can always make more in overtime. Where I am it is a good paying job. Cost of living is lower here. RCMP are better off here. They make around $70,000 I believe. That's great here, but if you are posted in Vancouver, it doesn't go nearly as far. Pros and cons, hmm, that one is kinda long. It can be a frustrating job dealing with the same people, same issues all the time. People hate you for what you do. People are rarely grateful. You deal with death alot. Then again, I am not stuck behind a desk (although there is alot of time spent in front of a computer doing paperwork). I am always entertained, people are strange. You will never see it all. It can be exciting and you have opportunities to go places and see things most people never will. Policing is not like it is on TV. If you don't want to mention where you are on here, you can email me, I may be able to give you more specific information. Additional answer- Absolutely, the Reserves would be very beneficial and it would look good on your resume. Volunteer work would help as well. It can be anything, as long as you are serving the community. Some examples of pay: Ontario Provincial Police pays 32,436.00 during training. Top salary (first class constable is 75,926.00. They have their complete pay scale on the website (below) Toronto cadet training is 45,042.34, first class is 71.522.91. Durham Police cadet training is 47,902, first class is 73,696 It usually takes a few years to reach first class, depends on the force. Training for all of these departments is done at the Ontario Police College. It is a post hire institution, which means you apply directly to the force you want to work for and if they hire you, they send you to the college.
