Is it worth investing in the services of an immigration company,the first time I enquired on one of their sites was by accident and now they keep reminding me that a payment is due!!!

I would say no, But every one is different and not all cases are straight forward. The most time consuming part is collecting employment references and the police certificates but apart from that I think it was quite straight forward, Just remember to check it and re check it when you have completed it.
Have you started the application yet?

No I haven't started my application as of yet,my plan rightly or wrongly was to visit some Canadian friends of mine and to try and arrange employment,and then to apply for a working visa.

If you haven't signed any contract with the firm or didn't retain their services in any other way (verbally, email, letter, etc.) then you owe them nothing.

We also have friends in Canada (Alberta) We were thinking along the lines of moving and obtaining a working visa, My Husband wants to start working for our friend who is starting up his own business and hopefully in time become partners in a business.
Then apply for PR whilst there but after reading a few threads on this site found out that its not as straight forward as I thought and will need to wait 36 months like everyone else.
I would advise that you check out www.cic.gc.ca for more info under Application to Work in Canada: Work Permits.
The site is really helpful .
Then again you may have a specialist job and things may be different.

Good Luck

Unfortunately getting work permit to work for a start-up company which doesn't have at least 12 months record of being in business and 12 months record of having employees is rather impossible.

CIC website is the best place for reliable information, but you won't find there everything you need in your particular circumstances.
