You could check out Monster.ca or Workopolis (.com?) to see how many jobs there are out there

Bonjour Fran├žois,

timelines through Paris for Federal Skilled Worker PR applications are indeed a bit faster than London. That said, you can see my timeline in my signature, and waiting time has gone up since. So, I would say count around 5 years at least through London, and around 4 years, at least, through Paris. This, of course, is only my opinion, and applies only to applications without a job offer.

Quebec is a lot faster, as was said already.

next time you are in Paris, maybe you could go to one of the information evenings organized by the Canadian embassy -- there is a general Canada-is-wonderful slide presentation, and then there is time to ask questions. here for dates: (and you need to pre-register, I think)

Also, as to job prospects, do look through the wiki (blue bar, top of the page), which is an excellent resource on job hunting and job prospects.

Look here also

Thank you all for your answers.

I think we might wait until we actually go to Canada next year to decide ourselves completely. However, I am going to one of these information meetings in Paris in December with the Canadian embassy, as well as one with the Quebec Office.

Adding one more year of experience to our CVs, as well as completing some further studies should make us even more interesting I hope.

You might want to look harder at the relative speed and difficulty of the two routes. And the longer you wait, the more chance there is for rules etc to be changed.

If you meet Quebec's requirements today and are willing to live in Quebec, that would usually be the recommended option.
