I currently have a little under $4000 still owing in OSAP loans from a prior failed effort at pursuing a university degree. I was more or less drifting in my first effort. In June 2018, after nearly 2 years of fighting NSLSC over things like them reporting missed payments to the credit bureaus while simultaneously refusing to accept payment, I finally managed to get my account in order. I was told then that I would be good to apply for OSAP at that point, so I decided to apply to a couple of universities in BC, due in part to the lower tuition (I'm in Northern Ontario). I received an admission offer from one - Kwantlen Polytechnic - to start a BBA specializing in Accounting, and I've already deferred it as much as I can (from Sept 2018 to Sept 2019). I currently plan to transfer over to Beedie at SFU to finish the degree before applying to Allard Law.
@Hegdis @Ryn Thank you very much for your posts. I was getting discouraged after reading material I found on google (and this forum) about foreign qualified lawyers in Canada. Your posts suggest that I may have a chance if I work hard at it and make the right networks. That is some encouragement.
Let me rephrase an earlier question then. What should be the minimum salary I should be expecting if I manage to find employment as a lawyer in Ontario/BC? I am just wondering if I would be able to sustain myself in Toronto at all.
I will be in Toronto in August of this year for a few weeks. Any advice as to which places I may hit up for networking?
