Considering the amount of 'foreign' controllers on here, I was hoping someone might be able to offer an insight to something.
The "take charge" site lists among the requirements for controller wannabees, to be at least a permanent resident or a citizen. This seems to go hand in hand with the amount of people that seem to have either become a controller here through some of the former programs that NAVCANADA used to offer, or from what I'm understanding it, applied soon after coming here through a "landed immigrant" status.
What I'm wandering is, how do they look upon any non-Canadian-born people, who didn't do the last thing mentioned? It would seem reasonable to assume that since they only require you to be a "permanent resident", that since they allowed people to signup either straight from some other country, or allowed people to signup as soon as they touched the soil(Literally), that someone who's been here for say 1-2 years, and THEN gotten the permanent resident status, shouldn't have any more or less issues, than those other groups. In fact in all logic, it would probably seem reasonable to assume that the latter might have an easier time signing up and going through the process, simply due to the "life experience" on Canadian soil, compared to the former.
Since logic often doesn't seem to go hand in hand with those organizations heavily involved in highly technical matters, and a lot of threads suggest various absurdities about the national ANSP, I'd appreciate any info or experiences, that people might be able to share in regards to this matter.
