It is a popular retirement destination but there are also people of all ages living on Vancouver Island. Langford, for example, is one of the fastest growing cities in Canada with especially young families moving there. The little town of Sidney has an obvious older population but many of the other areas have people of all ages living there. From personal experience I would say there is no lack of job opportunities or space to grow a career, especially in the tech sector. Cost of living and housing prices are high, but in return you get to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world 🙂
Wow, that is great score! Based on recent draws, you should definitely get your PR.
We entered the EE pool this week on 454 points. Age is slightly against us as I am 34 and wife 37 which is why we lost points.
If anyone knows of any job avenues we can follow besides Canada Job Bank, please let me know!
I work within the banking field in data analytics and have B.Eng (Stellenbosch), B.Com Hons (UCT), M.Com (UCT) and MDP (Stellenbosch business school).
Wife works as finance manager (CA SA) and has B.BusSci (CA option @ UCT), Masters in finance (WITS) and MBA (UCT).
Please inbox me if anyone knows of anything as we would need a job to get the +50 CRS points to qualify for PR.
