does it matter which external body i go?

It is more than 15 years since I applied.

And it depends on what kind of qualifications you have ...I think. Some bodies are better for certain qualifications.



You can try this forum to ask questions too.

When my siblings applied they used IQAS because it is Alberta and they wanted to go to Alberta.

Actually if you have made up your mind, and your points is above the cutoff , you should quickly apply. Every year older, you get 5 points lesser. :)

did my exchange there and got distant relative there. liked to be near Banff.
maybe not veh strong reasons bt we liked it there out of other parts we went.

The economy here is doing pretty badly now though. So it might be tough to find work. Or if manage to find work the pay is low.

O no... Is the salary survivable?
Iirc you can select a easier province to get accepted then relocate after a year.

I recall my relative did that
did not know Alberta is difficult...

I think wherever you go, best is to manage your expectations and have a positive mindset. Minimum wage is $15/hr, it’s one of the highest out of all the provinces.

Occupation determines salary.
Min salary per hour does not mean you get all 40 hours

less popular province easier, harder maybe longer wait.
If wait is not equal and save years of time. To some ppl why not.

I don't remember Federal Canada Govt PR program to be allocated based on provinces.

So if you apply Express Entry non provincial nominee program and you get the PR you can pretty much go anywhere in Canada.

Patryn33 is not all wrong. If it’s provincial nomination programs, the more remote provinces usually have easier to get in nomination programs.

I think even if you apply through provincial program, if you can’t get a job for a period of time, you can move to another province as well once PR is given.

Jen1512, if you don’t try, you never know. Probably right now you have to deal with whether the parents are okay with it.

yup done ielts - i did academic husband did general not sure if got diff.

i trying to settle the uni certs. seems like need some additional conversion or certification to prove my uni degree was not ... “fake”?
you need to take general ielts if you not going for studies, academic ielts only if you want to further your studies there.
you need your educational certificate verified by an external body, WES is the most common 1 used, i submitted my certs to WES as well.

the recent draw only seems to have canadian exprience class and provincial nominee program.
if i do not qualify for canadian exprience class (never worked in canada before), express entry alone won't be sufficient? need to apply for provincial nominee program?

and i see some posts that getting PR is easy but getting a job isn't so easy. how effective is canada job bank in searching and securing a job? i work in oil and gas industry as an engineer currently.

i'm also working on this with my bf. if i get a job first, means my bf would need to find a job in the same city? how do you find jobs in the same area? any tip from those who applied as a couple?

thanks lots in advance!!!
