I'm all right
Kind of sums up the way I feel right now. Things are a bit tough in some ways but Wife and I are still breathing and doing better all the time despite tripping over the bureaucracy at seemingly every turn ("No, your work permit doesn't cover that" or "We have to charge you foreign student prices"). Immigration to Canada is an expensive business unless you're being 'imported' by a big employer with an HR department well versed in the byzantine ways of Work Permits etc.
Still, lots of help if you up and ask for it, and the rules are changing week on week to allow people like me to bring their skills to a market which needs those skills (Electrical, Plumbing, Carpentry, Computing). As the song says, "I'm all right".
