Thanks to both of you for replying Lof I will check it all out when the paperwork arrives from the consultant, she has been very good so far. I will let you all know what happens
It's amazing how fast it all happened, June 06 we decided to look into moving to Canada so we looked at the Skilled Worker Visa but we were short by about 3 points because the only formal qualifications we had was OH's 1 year City and Guilds he did on the old YTS scheme. But a consultant look at our skills and experience and she told us that the best way in was to try PNP. So we booked a trip for the end of Aug 06 to make sure it was where we wanted to go, then started putting CV's out. Within 2 weeks we had two companies wanting to see OH (he is an CNC machinist) then in middle of Jul 06 we submitted another CV this time to a company in SK and they rang the very next day to interview OH over the phone and offered him the job then and there
Luckly with our trip coming up quite soon we decided to check out Yorkton before signing on the dotted line (they emailed the contract the very next day!) We put our house on market it sold three days later and then went to Canada for the last 2 weeks of Aug 06.
Yorkton looked excatly what we were looking for and the company who had hired two english employees already were well established in the City, so we felt confident we were doing the right thing.
So we got back beginning of Sep 06 and by beginning of Dec 06 we were in Yorkton having got in on a 2 year TWP and ready to start our new lives, it was so quick we didnt get time to breath but after a few teething problems we are now very settled and couldnt be happier.
I'm glad we did visit Yorkton in the Summer because when we arrived in Dec I honestly thought we had arrived in the North Pole I have never seen so much snow in all my life, kids had blast though
I know we have been very lucky but it will be good when PR finally arrives.
