Default Confused with the correct method for employment from the UK?

Hi there, please excuse my ignorance but I am getting somewhat
confused on the correct method of going about moving to Canada.
I am a well certified IT security consultant, hoping to move to Canada
with my wife and 2year old daughter.

I have contacted a few agencies, and they have told me that I need to
get a permit to work before they are able to find me a job. Looking
at the forms, I would assume that I need to fill on the 1295B form.(?)


Looking at this form, it would look like you already need to have a
job offer before filling it in - so I am somewhat confused!

Can anyone assist me in the correct method of approaching this ?


Kind regards

If you are talking about a work permit then it is up to the potential
employer to start that process. Thus, your confusion. You can do nothing
without the job offer, approved and in hand. That said, there has been a
lot of activity in the IT field. Perhap soeone else would have some advice
as to how to get the job offer.

Hi Jim, thanks for responding to me on this one.

It would seem that I cannot apply for jobs without a visa, and cannot
get a visa without a job - is this correct??!

I am either missing something here, or it is tough getting a job in Canada!


regards


Jon
