    SAIPA to CPA

    Hi all Have anyone started or done the SAIPA to CPA route? We are hoping to land in Vancouver, BC this year and I will like to register with CPA to start as soon as possible. I contacted SAIPA and they said I will most likely need to write the tax exams in Canada. Does anyone know what the next step will be, the cost and the time to complete? Thanks

    Application in BC, lower points and general advice

    Hi all, need some advice/opinions please. We met with an immigration agent on Friday to look at our qual and points etc. Hubby did his IELTS on Friday and sent in his degree into WES, so waiting on that. I will be doing my IELTS end Oct. According to the agent, we qualify with 73 points to go into the EE pool but from there we only have 385 points which limits us quite a bit. My husband's NOC code is 0213 (IT Management). If we try and improve our points, it will only go up with 20 and then down with 10 as he gets one year older next year (he is 40 currently) The recommendation was to look at BC, as they have a shortage with their fairly new BC Tech Pilot program. Is there anyone on this forum that has gone through this program and can give any input or thoughts? We really wanted to look at Toronto (or anywhere really where we can find a job). We've heard that BC is crazy expensive and not a good option. Happy to focus just on BC but it would have been great if we could have had a bigger net to throw open.... Would be grateful for your advice/opinion/share of your personal experience!

    Young South Africans in BC?

    Hi all I recently moved with my family to Vancouver, BC. I've been living in Vancouver now for a mere 2 weeks, and I was wondering if there are other South Africans I can meet here? I'd like to share experiences on what to do, where to live, and exchange information in general. Preferably I'd like to meet someone in their 20s, but any other help and advice would be appreciated. I've found it to bea bit of a culture shock so far :'( Thanks Jonathan
