Red face Which way to go??

Hi All
I know this has probably been posted several times before but i've looked and can't find my answer.
I am just about to start my 3rd and final year of nursing and my hubby is a truck driver.
The question is what type of visa etc do we go for? Would you say temporary work permit? Or something else, all this visa stuff is so confusing, any advice would be great.

Thanks in advance.

Hiya,

Which province are you looking at?
Have you checked the requirements to work as a Nurse in your chosen province? Also, this thread has some info on being a nurse in Canada http://britishexpats.com/forum/showt...ighlight=nurse

What kind of Truck Driving? Long Haul or Short?

There are loads of different Visa's, the ones that spring to mind are the Skilled Worker but you need to check that you have the relevant experience and points and also funds www.cic.gc.ca

Depending on the province the PNP (Provincial Nominee Program) could also be an option, this also depends on whether your OH is long haul or short haul.

To get TWP you need a job offer, and one approved by HRSDC

You can get more information if you read the Wiki - in the blue bar at the top of the page

Thanks for replying Linz.
My hubby is long haul truck driver, would prefer if he could get a driving job that didn't take him away for 14 days at a time. Don't think that would make settling in to a new country easy wilth him being away so long. Will look at the links you put on, once again thanks.

I believe British Columbia and Alberta have Long Haul drivers included in their PNP but he would need to get a Job Offer with a positive LMO and then a work permit. Once he has these, his employer needs to be willing to support his application for the PNP. Have a look at the these links:

Have a look here for more info on the Temp work permit:

In North America, long haul is likely to be that or more from the truckers I know. You may want to drop by the Truckers Forum and talk to a few in there. There is also a nursing forum you may want to look at.

Good luck.
