True, but the poster was originally talking about Ontario

Yes, but I needed to clarify it for the sake of anybody else reading! In any event, as the OP's husband is in a 'skilled' job, it's not relevant and he would be eligible to apply for PR via various routes.

Right, looking at that NOC thing, he comes under Skill Level A. What does that mean?

I shall have a read of the Wiki link you sent me

Does it help that we would be taking roughly £50k with us from the sale of our house?

Thanks for all the info so far everyone

Not in terms of finding an immigration class, but some classes will require you to have proof of funds available to help smooth your transition into a new country.

It doesn't really mean much just that there are probably more options open to you if you are a skilled worker (i.e. Ontario PNP). It's also good to work out what your noc code is anyway because you might have to know it for your application

So what's his actual NOC code?

And the £50k doesn't really help other than meaning you can show proof of funds as required for most visas. You'll spend most of that anyway!

He falls under a few of the sub categories in the code 217.

EDIT: what would we spend £50k on?

A category doesn't actually help, can you be more specific? It should be a 4 digit number.

You need to find the one with the duties most closely matching what he does every day.

The move, unless you've got the money for that in addition to the £50k. Probably not quite all of it though, but close!

Day to day, he does 2175, but he can do 2174,2173,2172 & 2171. Lol. Very smart guy, dunno where he stores all that knowledge.

Wow, really, nearly £50k just to move there?! I didn't think it would be that much to be honest!

The costs add up exceptionally fast. The cost to apply, which includes the application itself, medical, police certificate(s), language tests, postage, copies, etc.

Then all the actual moving costs. Plane tickets, shipping, extra baggage, etc.

Then the costs once you're over here. Temporary insurance for immigrants, deposits for credit cards and phones, deposits for housing (whether rent or down payment), furniture, housewares, linens, mattresses (depending how much you ship etc), car, car insurance, etc.

It adds up exceptionally quickly. I think you will find your £50k won't last very long at all.

Day to day is what matters. Bear in mind he'll have to prove his duties for his app via things like references, so you need to make sure it's a good fit. So do you still think 2175 is the best match? Can he prove he does that job easier than the other NOCs you mentioned?

And yes, emigration isn't cheap, think tens of thousands of pounds. This thread may be useful reading - http://britishexpats.com/forum/canad...canada-735341/

HTH.

Here's a link to the Ontario PNP which is another possible route for you but you need a job offer to apply
