Relocating to Vancouver ?
Vancouver is an amazing city. Nestled between the mountains and pacific ocean, it is still a young city developing it's own character.
You can go to the theatre, symphony or IMAX cinema;
Go shopping on Robson Street, Denman Street or at Pacific Centre Mall
Visit the Art Gallery or Museums (the UBC Anthropology museum is my favourite);
Swim, Rollerblade or Walk the sea wall;
Hike, Mountain Bike, Ski or Snowboard on the local mountains or drive the sea to sky highway to the world reknown Whistler Blackcomb mountains. It is also the home of the 2010 Winter Olympics.
It is not easy to figure out some times how to start the process of immigrating so I have tried to provide some information for you here:
Skilled workers have education, work experience, knowledge of English or French, and other abilities that will help them to establish themselves successfully as permanent residents in Canada.
Will you qualify?
Immigration Canada uses six selection factors and a system of points.
For more information on each selection factor click on it.
Temporary foreign workers on contracts or foreign students who graduated in Canada, often have the qualities (experince with Canadian society and the economy) to make a successful transition from temporary residence status to permanent residence status. You should have knowledge of English or French and qualifying work experience.
The Business Immigration Program seeks to attract experienced business people to Canada who will support the development of a strong and prosperous Canadian economy.
Find out if you can immigrate as one of the following:
Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) knows it is important to help families who come from other countries to reunite in Canada. If you are a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada, you can sponsor your spouse, common-law partner, conjugal partner, dependent child (including adopted child) or other eligible relative (such as a parent or grandparent) to become a permanent resident.
