Hi Phil,

Can you clarify exactly what visa route you are thinking of? You mention the NOC list, so I'd assume it's Federal Skilled Worker, but that results in Permanent Residency, not a 'work visa'. If it's a FSW application, then your family would all be dependents on the application and also get PR.

When you say visa, if you mean permanent residence (PR), then you will have to apply all at the same time. If it's granted you can all land, but your wife an kids can go back home for a while until you set things up.

If you're talking about a work permit then I'm not exactly clear on the rules, but I know your wife may be able to apply for a open work permit on the back of yours. It may have to go on the same application or it may not.

If you look at the blue menu bar at the top there is a link labeled 'Wiki' have a look under the Canada section on there and you will find more information.

Hope that helps.

PS I had to read your post 4 or 5 times before I understood what you were asking. Try a bit of punctuation as you're much more likely to get a response if people can easily understand what your asking

OK, so you'd all go on one application. Your wife and children would be able to stay in the UK for a while if you wanted to go on ahead, but they'd also get PR.

What is your occupation, is it one that still has space left for this year?

Tricky one. I have to confess that I work for an immigration consultant, but even so I'd usually say that most people can easily do a straightforward application on their own.

But, if you have complications or are just not happy with lots of paperwork, then it might be a good idea to hire somebody to sort it all for you. In the grand scheme of the huge cost of moving abroad (would probably be less than just the flights alone), it may be money well spent, but only you can make that decision. Any decent consultant will do a free assessment and consultation, so maybe do that and then see what you think? You can search the forum for recent recommendations.

Good luck.
