Try contacting Shadi Norman on [email protected] or on www.jobsearch-in-canada.com My wife and I have used Shadi as our immigration lawyer and employment consultant. We first met her at last years emmigrate show in London and also saw her at her home in Vancouver during our research trip last May. She has guided us through the PNP and obtained a job offer for myself. The bottom line; permanent residents visas are in our passports, house on the market and hoping to arrive in BC sometime in the summer.

That's less than C$60k per year. If you're thinking of buying a house in Vancouver, I hope you have a hefty deposit.

Haven't there been posts by other people being offered pretty much the same thing, only for the rate to drop to $20 - and then not even guaranteeing that upon arrival? I'm sure I remember seeing something similar round here somewhere.

I read your other thread.The company you are going to work for is rated
#1 construction company to work for in Canada.
Over the years I have seen their projects all over Vancouver and I did
not hear of any negatives about that company. I do not think they will mess
around with your contract.They clearly posted the ethical conduct policy
on their website and it appeared fair . I checked the BC better business
bureau and there are no complaints recorded against them.
Hope that helps.

BC = unions = no overtime = no $$$ bunce

I know guys on contract crews, they can't work more than 40 hours per week - 37.5 in some cases - they're not happy Alberta-bunnies this time of year - were hoping to rake it in here Construction ProjMan couldn't get more than $50k p.a so heading back to AB after just 4 months.

All is not wine roses and the sweet lotus leaf.
