My husband and I live currently in Finland, but due ever tightening legislation on farming and owning guns/hunting and other reasons, we have been considering on moving away from here. We did own a farm, but the low prizes we get from our produce and high prizes of fuel and seeds forced us to sell our plots away, since we were on a verge of bankruptcy. My husband is a professional farmer (3 years of secondary degree school for this) and qualified organic farmer (requirement to sell products as organic) and I'm a professional groom (horses) with an emphasis on entrepreneurship and a high school diploma.
All the immigrant farmers I'm aware of came with a lot of money to invest into their farms. At some point they probably took out loans to expand their farms, but they usually had a million Canadian dollars to begin with. Farm land in Canada has increased tremendously in value over the last 15 or so years.

Hi guys,


Once you are deported from Canada, does this show up on your police record?

Thanks!

Is there a way to legally sponsor an adult sibling in their mid-20s who has grade 10 education but is fluent in English? Would sending him to ESL classes in Canada get his foot in the door?

Hi BarqCider, A person with a DIP would likely have no problem entering Canada because that is not a Criminal Code Offence. However, there is an criminal offence under Section 175 (Causing a disturbance). It's possible that this could be part of the charge. In that case, it would be a summary offence (similar to a misdemeanor.) A person with one summary offence would likely still be able to enter Canada. Any more than that and they may need a TRP or Criminal Rehabilitation application. Feel free to visit our site for a free consultation if it would help. https://pardonservicescanada.com/:)

Need more information. What country is the adult sibling in? Get his foot in what door? If the sibling is already fluent in English what would be the reason for sending him to ESL classes in Canada?

American looking to move to Toronto. Was trying to apply for permanent residency and thought I needed 67 points. Took the IELTS, scored a band of 8.5, and had my college education assessed. Saturday I went to apply and took the CIC suggestion of applying for federal skilled workers. I now have 438 points. What does this mean? Can I apply for PR? It said the minimum points required were met. Do I need to apply for work first? HELP!
