Contemplating moving from US to British Columbia, most likely Victoria, and applying for permanent resident status. Any suggestions or caveats?

You mean, contemplating to apply for permanent resident status and then moving to British Columbia.

What are your qualifications? Are you a skilled worker? Married to a Canadian citizen? Do you have a job offer from an employer that is willing to sponsor you? Immigration isn't a walk in the park, perhaps you could provide some more details and we can help

As I understand it, you can't apply for PR status until you've been there for a little while (is it 90 days?).

At one time, I was classified as a skilled worker, but it seems they've changed things a bit. I'm not married to a Canadian citizen, nor do I have a job offer. I'm looking into going to school there, though, to train as a French teacher (I know some already, and I'm fairly fluent in Spanish as well, so I'm also going to look into TESOL). I already have two bachelor's degrees, so getting into another college or university shouldn't be a problem.

Thanks for the help!
