Another Big Move for us
« on: May 06, 2013, 09:46:48 PM »
Well, it's not for sure yet..
But me and my GF may be moving to Ottawa after all these years.
We frequently visit the city and there are a number of job opportunities there for her (Dental Hygienist) so we figured we may as well explore the possibility of moving over there.


We took the year to see if we could make things work in our home town but we don't have the connections to pull it off. We came close when a position opened up for her but the secretary had a brother with a new GF from out of town who got the job. This one ended up costing up $700 but thats a whole different story.


But, We've decided to not wait anymore.


She has applied to a few dental places in Kanata and Ottawa and hopefully within the coming months we will hear something good.


It's not the biggest news in the world and most of you may not care, but I just wanted to share it with someone. We are pretty excited and hopeful....


Keep your fingers crossed for us, the competition for Hygienists in Ontario is pretty fierce.

I hope it works out for you.

Although I may be stating the obvious, you do realize that the cost of living in Ottawa is much higher than where I *think* you are right now (Thunder Bay? North Bay?) Just keep that in consideration as well...

Thanks,
I'm actually right between Sault and Sudbury.
We've looked around and our expenses will be comparable to when we were in London. We don't want to be right IN Ottawa but one of the outer parts like Kanata, I have family there.

Is just tough here. There is basically no job market and we are living off my income alone. She got offered a job in northern BC but we would rather stay in Ontario.

They are actually looking for a hygenist according to my wife. But its to cover for a 1-year matrnity leave for one of their current hygenists. i will ask her for the clinic's email and send it to you.
