You could all come over (ignore what it says about dependents) but initially she would be the only one able to work (that might save on child care expenses ) however, if she obtained a skilled job with a 6 month or more contract then you could apply for a spousal open work permit on the back of hers.. for however long her work permit is for. It's not the ideal but it would potentially give both of you the extra points for the EE application - you get points for Canadian Experience - or alternatively a route via the Canadian Experience Class once she has worked in a skilled job for a year. It's not the fastest of routes, but it has worked for many - it really depends how desperate you are!


If you could give a breakdown of her points for EE we can look and see if there is anywhere that points could be increased (or that you have missed) although running the details you have given appear to show the same points as you mentioned. Does she have any qualifications other than a degree - and what is your highest education?
Thanks so much, didn't even consider the IEC.

She also has an IRRV which is a sort of HNC in relation to revenue and tax. Albeit the degree is the highest.

I have an HNC in health fitness and exercise (i was young and worked as a sports coach) After that i have completed my police training through the police college im Scotland, but that was nearly ten years ago and I dont think its worth much.

Have you checked to see if her HNC equivalent together with her degree might count as '2 or more' degrees, diplomas or certificates'? Was the course full time / post secondary / or lasting at least 1 year and academic, ? If so then potentially there's the extra points you were hoping to find!


Have a look through the ECA 'what your points mean' tool, selecting 'for Comprehensive Ranking System' and sort the list (looking for "Two or more certificates, diplomas, or degrees")

Thanks again.

​​​I'll have a look at the other education.

Just to go backwards a wee bit to the IEC. presumably kids aged 5 and 3 would be able to be educated in Canada, subject to me and them getting into Canada as spouse and dependants application.?

No application necessary for you or the children.. an IEC is purely for the applicant - no dependents go on it.. so you won't apply from the UK for anything other than your eTA's (so you can get on the flight) just wait until you arrive in Canada and enter as visitors. You ask for visitor records for the children (and you should ask for one for yourself as well, to enable you to get a drivers license exchange) when you get to immigration - that's all they will need for attending primary school / kindergarten (school attendance age is later here) - they do not require study permits to go to school. Your spouse will get her work permit at the same time, you ask for the visitor records to be for the same length of time as the work permit.

However, you will need to show that you have sufficient funds to support yourselves and pay for flights back - and also be able to show ties to the UK (you have to enter as bonafide visitors even though your ultimate intention will be 'dual intent' - temporary worker/visitors with an application for PR in place! Your spouse - as an IEC'er will need proof of funds and proof of medical cover for the whole 2 years.. regardless of the fact that she (and you all) may be covered within a matter of weeks/months (depending on the Province) for Provincial healthcare (it varies), she will need 'gap year' / backpackers insurance.. allowing her to work and to be repatriated, medical cover etc., whilst you and the children will have to find your own but it could be just for a few months, no requirement for the full 2 years for yourselves, just for the one participating in the IEC.

HTH's - it's not the ideal scenario, especially with children, but if it's your lifelong dream to live in Canada then it may well be worth it.
