Found 30th Oct 2008
Its for my bro actually;

He wants to go in Jan

Obviously he needs a working visa first, only apply for citizenship after being there for two years

Would he need to get a job secured or go over there part time and whilst over there find a good job

He has a degree in Electrical Engineering

Does he need to file for his VISA now, if so where exactly can he do so and does anyone know any phone numbers for people to help him

Any advise please guys

John

I presume he has been in touch with the Canadian embassy?

Best place mate :thumbsup:

My brother, a telecoms engineer, was given a list of Canadian companies who were looking for UK nationals and they would sponsor everything.

We were emigrating in July to Canada but i changed my mind, but we used a agency that do it all for you, they find you a job, do all the paper work etc. We found her at the emigration show at Stoneleigh in Coventry. I will try and find out what the agency was called, my husbands mate is using her at the minute and they move in February.

He better take his ski jackets etc then as its about -20 C then. Love the look of Canada but I moan enough about the british weather so would hate their dark icy cold winters.

thanks

think it depends where you are in Canada as to how cold it is. My Canadian au pair said it is much colder here then it is at home.

We went to Canada in February an i have never been so cold in all of my life, it was around -27 degree but with the wind chill it was about -40 degrees, even the water in your eyes freeze up if you are outside to long. Thats what put me off moving there

Wouldnt mind moving to canada myself

no way is she right. most of canada is in the arctic circle.

I have been to chicago in october and there was 10 feet of snow everywhere. I havent seen snow down south for years that has lasted more than a day.

Also considering moving to Toronto, can anyone tell me where I would find those states which are actively seeking migrant workers from UK ? Also how long the process can take, if you hire an agency to find job etc ?

I wanna move to canada after university

I got married a few years back and my Mrs was from canada. And she says that winter here feels more colder than the winters over there. Yeah your're right that hits -25+ at time and with the wind chill factor does feel a lot colder. But its a different type of cold. Here the cold really bites you in the face but over there its a different type of cold.

In regards to the OP's question regarding emigrating...If i'm not mistaken the canadian emigration works similar to australian. In terms of a pont system. So if your qualified you get so many points, educaiton level. working experiences. The easiest way to do is if you have any family there then get them to sponsor you.

Canada is a lovely place and I would love to move there sometime in the future. I'm just luky enough that my wife still ha canadian passport, so it will be an easier process for me!

Problem with the cold here is that it's around 0 degrees, so it's damp.

When it gets cold in Canada, it's so far below zero that the water vapour doesn't condense, it's a dry cold, much better.

Abz is correct, the immigration system works on points, but a lot depends on your brother's age. If he is under 30 he can get in on BUNAC, otherwise you need an employer to sponser your visa application, or get to the back of the three to four year waiting list that I am only nine months into
