• Another thought for jobs in the summer is dog/house sitter, if you can manage to leave your own overnight. Around here that pays $40/$50 per night, and is an alternative for people who don't want to kennel their dogs. I have dog walkers for when I am out of town, and they get $15 per walk, and seem to have lots of business.

  • A good friend worked her way through school cleaning homes with a 'Merry Maid' sort of company. You do need a car for that but as a bonus she learned how to clean her house completely in under 2 hours! Dog walking/sitting is good too, again, you may need your car for that. Best of luck to you.

  • Hi! Guys!! πŸ™‚ well life's getting a bit better , didn't get the job 😣
    But I did start my veterinary office assistant program this (Monday 7th) so that's a plus !!
    And we did end up selling the car to cover cost of other things πŸ™‚ so looking to the Brightside it's awesome πŸ™‚
    If we have any luck by September Julio should be working πŸ™‚ and I'll be half way done my program and ready to start
    A practicum and job by November

  • I'm glad to hear from you again and happy that things are looking up for you.

  • If you were in the USA there is lots of financial aid assistance for students, but Canada I have no idea. Glad things are coming together. I also know nothing about getting a Permanent visa when there on visitor one. Here they often require you to go back to your country, apply and wait. I know Canadian writer Joe Mallozzi has a girlfriend from Japan who has been on visitor visa. They've been together several years but the process to get her a permanent visa took them over a year. Hopefully you can get that done quickly so he can work.

    I spent about 6 mos working as a groom for a stable in my mid 20s. I found it hell. As an avid horse lover, the things they do to horses are appalling. Of the 10 hotwalkers and 12 grooms only one other person and I had ever RIDDEN a horse. But I had dreamed of horse racing thanks to the old Black Stallion books, so I took off a bit of down time to try it. I am glad you have taken another career.

    I hope your father is doing better. And that you are proud of how you are handling so many life changes, stresses and things because far from "pity", I find you admirable!

  • Debra πŸ™‚ thank you for positive thoughts πŸ™‚
    And yes here in canada all we get are federal loans and provincial loans , it still only covered the cost of my tuition which is something
    And we did sell the car to help with a few things , and here in canada people either go back to there country or apply from within the country but they must always have a valid status , visitor visa , work permit , student etc .. πŸ™‚ if we're lucky by September we will have some news from Canada immigration πŸ™‚ that he is eligible for a open work permit πŸ™‚
    My dad is doing better now , he went in for a check up with the specialist and yes the tumor was cancerous
    so he will have to go back in 3 months again to get checked out , and etc so keep track of things πŸ™‚
    I can't wait to finish school and get a job - and even start back again with horses -ha probably end up taking a a equine sciences diploma program online afterwards ,
    And yes I worked at the track some things they do are horrible , others are great and take amazing care of them it's a hit and miss !
