    Which way to start the process

    WES is for tertiary qualifications. I cannot remember now if you need to send Matric with the rest.

    Which way to start the process

    you go in here and you click on every province, and then click on every link that you can find. Sometimes the provinces has pilot programs, so each province is different: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/immigrate-canada/provincial-nominees/works.html

    Which way to start the process

    Thank you so much for the help. Italy is an option but not one that either of us are keen on but you have a good point about the currency. I'll look more into the PNP's but where would one start to look at which one to go for ? Also for WES, do you send matric certificates or only tertiary education ?

    Doesn’t exist because of basic economics. The more people earn, the more people spend which drives up demand. Higher demand = higher cost of living. It’s possible to find a high paying job in a low cost area but you won’t find high paying jobs (plural, as a norm) in a low cost area.

    Express Entry

    Dear All We just submitted our express entry application, but on the application they asked how many dependents including the main applicant and we said 3, but they only asked for my spouse information and not for my daughter information. When we reviewed the submitted application it just shows the spouse as a dependant. Will they request my daughter information at a later stage.

    PR application - Provincial Nomination

    Hi @Casio1812 417 is not too bad but you are right, we haven't seen draws having points that low as yet. (PS I think there was once before but for the life of me, I can't recall the lowest points, 417, 419?) Anyway, I'd be frank that TEFL is not really an in-demand profession in Canada. I know of some people who teach English as a foreign language, but they mostly concentrate on markets outside Canada. I'd suggest going for a Student Visa (if you can), but this will require some monies/funding. It is more expensive to study in Canada as an international student so you will need to show you can afford this. There are many other options, such as PNPs (like you mentioned). The first step would be is to visit the different provinces' websites and look at the programs they have and see which ones apply to you the best. I'd assume provinces that do not require definite job offers or work contracts are what you'd go after. These programs tend to be the more popular ones too so there's a lot of competition. Good luck with the research! Hopefully you do find something that will be a good fit and route to take.

    Hi @Drake! When you obtain employment prior to the process, you can apply in two ways - via a work permit or via a PR route. I would assume you are aware of the difference of these two so I won't elaborate too much on them. The biggest difference is that one is a temporary permit dependent on the length of your work contract and the other is a permanent one. So let's say you go the PR route. You have some options - via direct Express Entry or via PNP (and others, but again won't elaborate too much. I think the two mentioned are the most common ways). It seems you are already on track with the Quebec route. This is an equivalent to a Quebec PNP (although not really called that). Provincial nomination programs (PNPs) are province-specific. You are nominated by the province for a PR. You go through their screening process and once you successfully obtain the PNP certificate (in Quebec, this is called the Going through the Quebec process would mean that it's a sort of Quebec provincial nomination program. Provincial nomination programs (PNPs) are province-specific. You are nominated by the province for a PR. Once you successfully obtain the PNP certificate (in Quebec, it is called CSQ - Québec Selection Certificate), you will then send an application to Express Entry. With this certificate, it will be faster to get chosen/invited, and PR comes after that. The tendency is that if you get a PR via PNP, it is an "understanding" that you want to settle in that province and live your life there. Moving provinces is frowned upon (but not uncommon). My 2c on this is that you should try to make it in the province that you get your PNP in. Give it time and if it is not working, and you will be successful elsewhere, then by all means, move. On the subject of French, Montreal is very French. I wouldn't go as far as saying you won't be able to survive without French there. I have a sister in law who lives in Montreal and she doesn't speak French (some 30-odd years now). You'll learn to live with it. I think it can be hard though. I'm not sure about the last part of your question, so I'll leave that for now. Hope I was able to help clarify a couple of things for you. 🙂 Good luck!

    @T3ZA and @ReneLestan I called following @Mynhardt 's suggestion. It takes a few dropped calls and retries, but eventually you get to speak to someone. It was only after I made these calls that my application moved, according to the GCMS notes, nothing was done on it since Feb. I got PPR 2 weeks after. Here goes...
  15. I am looking at moving to Canada through the PR program, but I do not have enough points (417) for the Express Entry program. I've read one of the best ways to get more points is through the Provincial Nomination programs. I have 5 years experience teaching English as a foreign language, and wonder if my work experience in this area will help me to get a Provincial Nomination. I found my NOC code: "4021 College and other vocational instructors" which lists language school instructor under its occupations, which is Skill Type A. I do not know if this I would be able to qualify for any Provincial Nomination programs and how to check this. I would like to move to Ontario, but am open to other places. I am currently finishing my final year BA majoring in English and Linguistics, and looking to move as soon as possible after graduating at the end of the year. I am also considering trying to apply for a Student Visa and do a Post-Graduate degree there as a back up option. I have excellent results academically so if there are good scholarship opportunities for funding for post-graduate courses I would consider that too. I look forward to receiving any help and advice, thanks!

    Canada here we come

    hi, Sorry for dropping in on this old thread, but this is very relevant to my current situation. I've been trying to get into Canada for a year now, and my skills are well sought after. I kept getting refused when companies realise I need visa sponsorship (my EE points are only 293). I've even made it through to the final steps, negotiating offers with two companies in Toronto. They knew I needed sponsorship from the start. Again, when they realised that having a job offer is just not enough, but they need to do a LMIA, they backed off :(. It seems to me that the companies in Montreal are a lot more aware of the visa process, and willing to do the extra effort. I am now very far in with two companies, and we have already discussed all the visa issues, which is more that I can say for any of the other companies I spoke with. My goal is PR. Is speaking French really such an issue if you are willing to put in the time? What does it mean that you can apply for PR, but need to leave the province? That doesn't seem logical at all... Is having a job offer in another province enough proof? Thanks, Drake

    Hi@t3za my appologies for the late response. Yes thank you the LORD is faitthful. We finally received our PPR on the last day of the 7 month mark. We used +16139444000. It was our agent at New world immigration not from CIC. I am sure you are not far from yours now. It should be coming soon.

    Travelling without PR card (Activation completed)

    Always better to get the temporary travel form rather than mailing or couriering a valuable PR card.

    Work permit and air tickets

    I came on a return ticket 2 years ago on a work permit with KLM as it was cheaper and close to when we would have to go back I applied for a refund and got the return portion back. It worked out very well.

    Hi @ReneLestan thanks for the message. Yes it does help, at least I know others got a similar message. I was thinking maybe something was going wrong with my application. I changed jobs since I sent my forms in, so thought maybe in the background check of employment, it threw a red flag and was delaying things. Anyways will just keep waiting.

    Work permit and air tickets

    I believe you can make the case when buying a single trip ticket that your work contract ends more than a year later and it’s not cost effective to buy two-way when you will not be able to take the return flight anyway. However, I’d check the price of the flights. Sometimes return flights are cheaper to buy than one way. Just a thought.
