Default 'Smaller' companies with LMO's

OK, I am currently interviewing/ in communication with, several of the larger Canadian haulage companies with LMOs. The further i get into the process though, the more I think I would be happier with a smaller, family orientated company.

I have managed to identify a couple of suitable companies through hours and hours of research and trawling through the barrage of shite on web forums....

Is anyone able to offer any heads ups? PM if you like, save publicising it to the masses

BTW, I am not wet behind the ears, stupid, inexperienced or otherwise. Please save sarky, narky comments for someone else!

Thanks Neil! Got all of them! Is Alberta still known as a nightmare for obtaining PR?

Took me 2 years and I got it in 2010, my mate just got his and took 2 1/2 years.
Just read yesterday on Calgary news that the Government are ploughing another 44million into immigration processing so maybe they'll get there shit together.
Don't know about how long it takes in the other provinces though.
You might be better off going to MB or SK but I don't know about companies with LMO's.
Loblaws in Regina.

Most smaller companies tend to not be happy paying for LMO's, so you might find it easier with a bigger one.

Good luck.
