My route was unusual: moved here as a tourist, purchased property, applied for a TWP to run a business from the property, 3yr TWP issued, separate PR application running in the background, PR issued after c3yrs from application submission.

I just called them up, (to help with the self-employed TWP process), after my PR application consultant (Balvinder Pahl - http://www.visa2canada.com/) recommended them for more unusual routes of entry to Canada. They both did a great job for me.

OMG... thats a pretty unusual and fast route. One Quick Q - is this allowed? Can a non-canadian purchase property in Canada? and above all how did you manage the bank account to start up home biz biz without a work permit?

I'll assume 'root' is a typo and not reference in the Australian vernacular to my sexual performance

It's perfectly legal. I just didn't want to tread water in the UK for over 3 years waiting for a PR application to get processed, so I sold up, moved here as a tourist and got on with making things happen more quickly.

pretty nice strategy. BTW, how did you manage the bank account without TWP?

You don't need residency status to open a bank account. I had a commercial mortgage, business and personal accounts and a line of credit months before I had a TWP.

We used Goldman Associates. I would definitely recommend them.

Ian Goldman is an immigration lawyer as opposed to a consultant.

Hmm.. interesting. Never new anything about this till today, but always used to wonder the feasibility. Now, you have forced me to think in more unusual directions.

bear in mind if you think £8800 is a lot of money a consultant is likely to charge £1500-£4000 in fees, as well as the processing fees you have to pay CIC. It is possible to do the application yourself if you want to, and save yourself the consultant's fees! A lot of people on here did it themselves... us included

Vicky, the amount of 'proof of funds' required is only to show that you can support yourself when you get to Canada, and is actually lower than most people need. So if you don't have that amount, then ask yourself if you can really afford to emigrate permanently?

Add up your visa fees, medicals, flights, insurances, shipping, dog transport, rental deposits, utility deposits, car insurance, etc, etc, and you're going to be looking at at least £15,000 for a couple. Add on another few thousands if you're going to be using a consultant (which I would recommend going on your threads over the past 24 hours which seem confused at best!).

To add further, £8,000 does not go a long way towards setting up a new life in Canada unless you are lucky enough to get well paying jobs straight away.
