Hi again, I just ran through the CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) - tool) tool again and said that I had done an English test.

This left me with a score of 441, much closer to your suggested 450.

Perhaps this is a better way to go about emigrating? After all the IEC pool is closed now until December.

Similar question but still not totally sure on the answer still so more annoying questions from me!

We are a couple with a dog, don't have enough points to apply for PR through EE from the UK so am now looking at the IEC for 2 years which will give us enough points to be in with a chance!

Main issues with this are, I still can't find anything on the likelihood of us both getting given an IEC visa (within a similar time frame), and still not sure what would happen at the end of the first 2 years bridging the gap between being able to say we/ I have 2 years work experience within Canada and being issued with the visa.

Currently my understanding is either saving up a lot of money, not working and sitting it out on a visitors visa or returning to the UK until you have a new visa? (2nd one not looking good as an option as too expensive to fly dog home for a long holiday)

Edited to add: Forgot to ask about PNP (BC) Should I get a job for the first 2 years (hopefully!!) would I be able to apply for this or ask employer to do it? Not sure whether they have to apply or just give a job offer! Thanks!
