Hi there, have recently thought about moving to Canada. I havent done a lot of research as of yet but thought I would start here and maybe find out some advice from people who have actually undertaken this move. It will be myself and my partner moving over, he is qualified in accounting and finance and works in finance and costing at the minute, I have one year left to complete in my childcare degree, however I am thinking of going to Canada before I complete this year. Will this make a huge difference?
I would like to know stuff like:
Where is the best place to start off?
How hard is it to find a job?
I am willing to take on any job at all as im happy to work doing anything even if it is not releated to childcare as is my partner.
Where do we start to look for jobs? Should we apply before we go or wait?

I will add more questions to the thread but for now this is a start!
Hope to hear back from some people who have been through this process!

Thanks in advance!

The best place to start off is with Canada immigration ato see if you qualify if you're not already Canadian.

I myself would like to go but I am waiting until I complete my nursing degree. If you only only have 1 year left why not just complete the year then go? It takes a bit of time for the visa process to be completed so you could be doing that as well as studying and by the time things are sorted you might have finished your course or be pretty close to finishing......Personally I found taking time out of school makes it tough to go back.

Exactly! You are a citizen of which country? There are limitations to moving into Canada and working here for 1 year.

I agree that Immigration Canada is a good first stop. You need to find out if living and working here is even possible. Once you do that, then we can talk about where to start, what to expect, where to live, what field to work in, etc.

BTW, I would definitely finish your degree before coming here, especially if you are more than 50% complete. Having this degree means a higher likelihood of finding employment in a field where there is demand, which makes it more likely that you will get a work visa.
