Default Advice most welcome

Hello everyone that views this post

I am a 53 year old lorry driver (7.5 tonne) from Nottingham and seeing my brother recently who came over to the UK for a holiday,he has been in Canada for the last 31 years (he is a landed immigrant) we spoke in great depth about me investigating the potential in trying to seek employment over in Alberta or B C, the conflicting information I have read has lead me to try the forum and find out the facts from hopefully some of you that have gone through the experience already. I would also like to know if my brother who has 3 Canadian children can sponsor me in any way.

Thank you for your time and attention to this message

Cheers Gary

Hi

Here is a little less blunt and more informative answer to your question

Q. Can I sponsor my brother or sister to come to Canada?

A. Siblings, namely brothers or sisters are not members of the family class, which are immediate family members, such as spouses, children, parents or grandparents, whose sponsorship is usually permitted subject to the financial ability of the sponsor. Siblings can immigrate to Canada through independent or skill-based immigration, and they will be given 5 points out of 67 points required if you are a sibling who is a permanent resident or Canadian citizen living in Canada.

There are many different routes to Canada , so all hope is not lost. Two years ago a friend of mines moved to Toronto from the uk as he got a job offer doing exactly the job you do just now .

Good luck and hope you find a route !!

Yep, as said above your brother can't sponsor you unfortunately, but have a look at the Wiki to see if there's another visa route open to you.

Good luck.

i believe BC have a semi-skilled (trucking) stream for PR, as well as Alberta and Saskatchewan

You could ask your brother if he has any contacts in the trucking industry to see if you could set up some interviews with the aim of getting a TWP as well.

Hello, to get in as a truck driver on a TWP on the PNP scheme, you need a Class1 and 2-3 years experience in Long Haul and the job would be Long Haul over here as well.
Also you cannot get PR in Ontario as a Truck Driver.

Yes, you can get a TWP in ON but not PR as a truck driver.
Also the pay in ON is shocking compared to other provinces.
IMHO, SK & MB probably have the best balance between earnings, house prices and ease of getting PR.
