Hi george82, I'm sorry I can't offer any advice on your plan, but someone mentioned earlier about it being 800 km's for you to travel to see your brother.
Okay that seems a long way to go, but basically it's an 8 hour drive and it's not unreasonable for your brother and you to pick a spot halfway, and meet there for a weekend every now and then.

Good luck with your plans.

You apply when and if your trade/profession is on the list. Even if f it is on the list now there is no guarantee that it will stay on it.
Check CIC wait times for how long the current applications are taking. You would have one year to land after the date of your medicals, then up to three years after that as you have to be in Canada for two years out of the previous. five to maintain PR.

FSW (Trades) applications for Plumbers are being accepted now (with no cap), however, there are no guarantee that that profession will be on the list next year.

I would strongly suggest getting your qualifications recognised and any trade certification done now and apply now - it will take at least a year for the application to be processed.

Once you receive your COPR (which allows you to 'land' as a PR) and land you can leave again straight away if you want to. You just have to ensure that you are in Canada for 730 days during the 5 years after you have 'landed'. - so you would have the time you need to move over, even if you applied now.

You can read more about the trades stream here: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigra...plications.asp

You have to include your family on your application if you want them to get PR too. You mentioned the FSW above, but you are aware that plumbers aren't on the list of eligible occupations for that visa, or did you mean the Federal Skilled Trade program?

Re: your qualifications, it tells you on the CIC website, it will depend on where you're going.

Two completely different visa programs, of the 50+ available! Both result in PR though.

You would not qualify for the normal FSW program as your job is not on 'that' list - or else you would need to find an employer willing to offer you a job to come under the FSW2 (with job) stream.

Stick with the Trades stream - it's the easier one of the two for you - you just need to get your trades certification done.

Have a look at the website I gave you earlier, it has links to each Province which tells you how to become certified for your trade.

Well, yes, given that you don't qualify for FSW at the moment! Plumbers aren't on that list, they're only on the list of eligible occupations for the FSTP.

HTH.
