Would applying for a visa under the skilled worker catorary be my correct option?

If you re-read my reply, you'll see that I did ask that if you have any further questions you start your own thread - please do so, to avoid hijacking the OP's thread any more.

But in answer to your question, if you are definitely eligible as a Skilled Worker, then yes, that would be your quickest, easiest route to Permanent Residency.

To repeat, Bosco, you are really going to have to do the research yourself as no-one but you knows the details of your circumstances, which will dictate whether you are eligible for any of the immigration streams and if so, which ones might be the best choice for you.

If you go out to Canada and get a job offer (and fulfil the LMO requirements), then you can apply for FSW Category 2 or PNP but that is all I know about because that is what we looked into due to our circumstances not fitting any other immigration route.

Use the website link I posted and the Wikis christmasoompa directed you to and read carefully and thoroughly.
Only you can narrow it down to what could work for you and then when you have found what route/s you are eligible for, posters on this site can answer more specific questions.
At the moment, no-one can really advise you because there are so many routes and so many variables in applicants' situations which dictate their admissibility.
Good Luck finding a route that you can access.

We assumed that they were asking for the updated IM0008 because they had changed the form. The information on it hasn't really changed, so that was all we could think of.
It is best to fill in the most up to date version of the forms whenever you are asked for them because they can ask again if it isn't the most recent version.

We sent in our new Police checks and the IM0008 by courier and they were received by the VO on the 3rd September.
Since then we have had no further communication. Medicals should be next for us, but when that will be is anybody's guess.:(

hello Helcat
As you and me share close timeline, I am also waiting for medicals since 5th August 2011. On 18 October 2011 it was a year since our application was first received, thus I sent to London VO an email asking about when medicals will come?, after a while they replied (we recieved your updated documents, and your application is in background check. We cannot advise when that will finish, but it is likely to take some time). My records are clean, and do not know why it is taking all that time? what is your status now???

Figure about a year processing time although quite a few people have had it sooner recently.

HTH.

I re-applied on 14th sept 2011 as a fsw .my 1st application lacked info on my apprenticeship and college.My application was received by CIC on 24th Sept.
My credit card has not been charged yet is this a normal timeline and do I need to worry.When I applied last year my cc was charged within 2 days?
Thanks Derek and family hoping to move to Vancouver Island as an Industrial Electrician.

I do not know how long 2011 applications are taking at CIC to charge the credit card at the moment but it isn't uncommon for the first stage of FSW processing to take up to 4 months.
Even once they have taken the money, it is no guarantee that you have passed the first review.

When the review is completed, they will send you the notification (either positive or negative) by e-mail so keep an eye on your Inbox and Junk folder.
Personally, I think that you have a while longer to wait before you should expect to be hearing anything, but it could be before Christmas.
