I'm a trucker and have been for about 4/5yrs now and looking to move over to canada with my soon to be wife, to start a family and a new life.
I have had a look at the different opitions that i have got a the main one is the goverment scheme called the PNP. I have heard so many different things about this scheme and not too sure if most companies will follow the guide lines that are set by it.
The problems that i am having at the moment is do i find a trucking company first that will offer the PNP or should i find a place to live and then try and find a company.
The places that i have looked at, at the most at the moment is in BC south states like vacouver but more on the outskirts the city. What i am really looking for is a 2 story house. with excellent views and where you don't have to travel miles to get everyday things.
There are loads of trucking companies offering the PNP in BC so i was really looking for some advice on town and any trucking companies that anyone knows of.

East. Vancouver and Surrey B.C. have some crime by Canadian standards but they aren't particularly bad by U.S. standards. Both of those places are in the south of British Columbia near the U.S. border.

It seems the most money comes from logging trucks in Northern British Columbia. I don't know too much about Northern B.C. myself but this may help:
