Default Advice on Employment - would this be beneficial when appying for PR

All, I'm currently Technical Director of a successful New Media firm based in London,
UK. I want to emigrate to Canada, and have considered approaching my employers to
allow me to continue my role from Canada, possibly with the prospect of setting up a
branch of the company over there.

Would this scenario help when applying given the current points scheme or would my
application simply be best served by applying and going jog-hunting after landing ?
(I am happy to say I think I'm over the 75 mark threshold)

Any views or experience greatly appreciated.

Best Regards Scott

around the east coast of central Scotland where I live !!)

I of course meant - job-hunting !

Evidence that you are likely to have a position of employment waiting for you upon
your arrival in Canada can have a significant benefit to the case, although no points
would be directly attributed unless the offer is validated by HRDC. The benefit would
be in both the opportunity for an interview waiver, and in the application of
substituted evaluation, if necessary.

of substituted evaluation, if necessary" please ?
