My Polish fiance wants to migrate to Canada in the future and he wants me to research on how to do so. Is it hard? He wants to be a truck driver there. Is there a possibility of migrating there? Thanks in advance for any feedbacks.

Let me know how so I can send all of these Geese back. Dang Canadian geese are invading the US ;) We have to hire companies like "Geese Police" or "Get the flock out" in order to control these buggers.

I understand but if you really interested you need to do the work (homework) by starting with reading the immigration regulations.

I understand that it could be overwhelming but it is your call. Also there is a trial point system application you can fill out to see if you or your boyfriend qualifies.

yup, start there because if he doesn't qualify on that test then he ain't going anywhere.

i am going to have to agree with miranda on this one ... if you wish to move to any country you at least do your homework, research and take your time ...

rushing does not speed up a process :) good luck though

Hello guys,

The Skilled worker program, under which you could immigrate by calculating the points on the government web site does not exist anymore (since Feb. 2008).

All applications sent after February/08, will not be processed. The applications took 4 years, and will take that long for those who already submitted theirs before February. In addition, if your application does not have promised employment with a company in Canada, it will be refused, no matter how many points you have.

The Canadian Experience class in in effect now. You need to come to Canada as a foreign worker or a student and work for two years or study for two years and work for one year. Afterwards, you may apply for permanent residence. This program came into effect on September, 2008. It's about a month old now.

I hope this helps.

I like the sound of that, sounds fair. :)

Yes - workers need to work for two years. Students need to study for two years and work the third year. They get an open work permit after they complete their studies.

I agree. It sounds ok. :-)

seems someone here above is off. the point system is still in place but it requires less points to qualify if you're skilled worker, etc.. you can read all about it here.

You can bring him in as your common law partner or husband.That should be easy.He can come as a visitor and apply while in Canada.In 4-8 months he will get a work permit,then in a year, or so permanent residency.

By the way,a friend of mine,A Canadian Is thinking of moving to Poland,or EU,if you know of a single Polish woman who might want to move to Canada(and if they click she gets a husband and if not than residency after all) private message me,I will pass the info on to him.He is around 43-45.

Ungar is right, However loco polaco is OFF.

Loco polaco - you gave me a link to a Lawyer in London, England. He is not even a member of CSIC and does not have the latest information, as Immigration Lawyers and Consultants have in Canada.

Lawyers and Consultats in Canada belong to CISC, an organization which gives permission to practice Canadian immigration law.

Non members cannot represent clients in immigration matters as they are not updated on immigration law, especially if they are overseas.

The organization requires on-going training and seminar attendance to keep up with law changes. Overseas lawyers cannot keep up as they are not in Canada.

The general public has not been notified that the point system is gone. If you filed your point system papers by Feb. 08 and had an arranged job offer, they will look at your application. If you filed with no job offer or filed after February/08, your applcation is never going to be looked at. Your fee may be gone too.

If you had no job offer, you are advised to remove the application and wait until a list of jobs comes out in November. Persons who qualify to perform the jobs on the list may apply under the point system that year.

The point system is actually called the SKILLED WORKER point system. It requires 67 points. Therefore it is untrue that skilled workers need less points. They are the only group which can apply under this program. :-)

hope this helps

2 years eh! well that leaves me another 11 months. After that i am just going to apply for a 2 year permit extension before i decide if i want to apply for residency. The company have offered me a permanent position so i'll just take my time.

I WANT SNOW!!! my skis are dusty.

That depends what job. You can apply after 9 months if you live in BC and your job is in the hospitality, restaurant or trucking industry.
