      Help! I just had unexpected surgery (which I never would have been able to afford in South Africa) and I was booked 5 days off.  The thing is; I just recently started a new job and I’m not there for two weeks after this week so it will look *very* suspicious.  What is the best way to inform my employer? I’m still on probation!

      Thank you for everyone's reply. @corwes I'm familiar with the entrepreneur VISA which you are referring to, but I think that one is specifically for immigration.  The link that I posted was specifically for a Work permit.  In the work permit link they refer to the general eligibility requirements being of course that you need to prove that you can support your family for the first few months until you're settled in, and also you must be able to show that you'll create significant employment opportunities with running your business.  What exactly "significant" means;  my guess is that you need to eventually employ at least 10 people or so?  Anyway, I think not being able to work for a Canadian employer under this work permit for the first few months just adds too much risk, so guess we'll also look at the NZ option.  Otherwise, my husband could try and establish a market before we go and apply for the entrepreneur work permit. Again, thanks so much for everyone's input.

      I would say it depends on how often you wear it and what you do while you're in it. Mine doesn't really get dirty because I use it on the coldest days and I'm fortunate that I don't perspire then. My first season, I used a parka-parka  a whole season, even for skiing and didn't get it cleaned until the end of the season. The kid's jackets weren't down, so those were washed more often.
