I'm new to the Canadian forum, but been toying with moving to OZ for the past year so been on that one.
However I have realised my heart still is back in Canada and want to come back with my husband and son.
I am a Canadian citizen, and moved back to the UK when I was 14. I knew I would always come back, but didn't expect it to take 21 years..... Life got in the way, married at 24 then he wasn't interested in coming with me so put the idea out of my mind. However the relationship ended back in 2006, and new that was my opportunity to come back on my own.
In 2007 I met my husband and by 2008 we had our son. My husband loves the idea of living in Canada so I thought I would start it all off.
My son qualifies to get automatic citizenship through me, but will have to sponsor my husband to go over (he was born in SA, but is a British Citizen since 2006). But before I can do this I need to get my sons citizenship sent off for, along with getting a replacement card for myself. (purse stolen when I was 16) plus I was 8 years old on my original!
I know the average wait time for new cards can take 12-18ths, so cant start the sponsorship off until they come back.
Is there anyone else in or been in the same situation? Would be great to hear any issues, or stumbling blocks.
Also I know you have to prove intent to move back, but not sure how I would prove this as until we get the go ahead I can't start looking for property, jobs etc? However my husband maybe able to transfer within his company to their Canadian office, but didn't want to ask them until we also had the go ahead. Would savings show intent? as we hope to take £20-30k with us.
