    Este articulo que a continuacion copio fue tomado del libro: “HERE” cuyo autor es Anthony DePalma del New York Times. Refleja claramente la realidad sobre la sociedad Canadiense.

    Yo recomiendo su lectura a todas aquellas personas que piensan emigrar al Canada y que tiene su idea de lo que es el Canada como sociedad.
    Si Ud. piensa emigrar al Canada con la idea de escalar posiciones en el mundo empresarial o llevar un estilo de vida similar al que llevan los britanicos-canadienses, entoces le recomiendo este libro, para que tenga una idea clara de las tremendas limitaciones que la sociedad Canadiense impone en este aspecto.
    Son muchos los autores que hablan de la “enfermedad” de la sociedad canadiense, la cual ha promovido la creacion de ghetos de emigrantes en las principales metropolis del pais y de la poca integracion de estas personas a la sociedad. Este problema que hoy es evidente, sera insostenible en el mediano plazo. La pregunta es: que estan haciendo las elites canadienses que dirigen el destino del pais al respecto?

    La idea es ayudar a las personas que estan en proceso de emigrar al Canada a que esten preparadas a lo que deberan enfrentar y sobre dejar claro que Canada como sociedad es muy diferente a Estados Unidos como sociedad.

    Esperando que este aporte sea de ayuda para todos.

    The title of the book is: HERE
    Author: Anthony DePalma (international business correspondent for The New York Times)
    Publisher: HarperCollins (HarperPerennialCanada)
    First Edition: 2001 (Second 2002)

    From this perspective, the ability to seize opportunity and be transformed by it is the factor the defines what being an American has meant for what I have become. Many things separate those of us in the United States from our North American neighbors -sometimes culture, sometimes language, and almost always worldview- but the one that has been most central to forming the characters of the three different nations in Nort America involves this most fundamental of North American traits. We share the desire to get ahead, but our opportunities for doing so differ markedly among these three nations that have for so long offered this path. I have met many successful people in Canada, the sons and daughters of immigrants from all over the world. But with few exceptions, Canada -despite its similarities to the Unites States- offered them only a remote degree of the bounty of opportunities they would have found had they lived in America. True to its British roots, Canada still puts great stock in having the proper training and the right connections, a club mentality that imposes rigid expectations of behavior and
    outcome. William Thorsell, longtime editor of “The Globe and Mail” in Toronto, posited that background, not merit, was what really mattered in Canada. “In New York they ask what you earn”, he once wrote in an editorial-page column in The Globe, but in Toronto, “they ask where you live”. Canada’s generic universities are not expected to transform students but to turn out graduates who are better-paid versions of their parents.
    Since the end of World War II, more than 60 percent of top Canadian executives have come from upper-class backgrounds, almost twice the percentage found among American executives.
    Similar figures are not available for Mexico, but the fact that a handful of families
    control the country’s largest corporations makes clear that economic opportunity
    there is largely reserved for those who already have status and power.
