you can always take your children(if you have custody obviously) with you no matter what route. FSW versus PNP versus IEC etc.

Have a read http://britishexpats.com/wiki/Category:Canada and if anything is confusing, don't worry, just ask specifically and with more info regarding your age, employment history, qualifications etc. That makes it easier to help!

Just checking, but do you mean a Working Holiday Visa, or a Temporary Work Permit? Two very different visas, although you can take dependents on either.

As has been said above, start with the Wiki and figure out your best route to a visa, then shout with any questions.

Good luck.

Have a look at these Canadian job sites http://www.workopolis.com/EN/Common/HomePage.aspx and http://www.monster.ca/ But first thing will be to find out whether you are eligible to come and work in Canada and which visa would be the best for you and then the job hunt can start.

Best advice is to grab a cuppa and start reading the Wiki, it should answer 99% of your questions. This page is a good place to start - http://britishexpats.com/wiki/Quick_...an_Immigration

But put simply, a WHV is only for one year, but it's an open work permit (so no job offer required) for those age 30 or under.

A TWP is usually a 2 or 3 year visa, but you need a job offer and Labour Market Opinion for it.

HTH.

Had a read there! Seen that I can put my baby on my visa application but just wondering will my partner have to apply for a separate visa or can we apply for like a family visa? Has the iec visa closed?

The first round of the IEC has closed but there will be two more http://www.canadainternational.gc.ca...ex.aspx?view=d

One, if under 30 and eligible (funds etc) could apply for the IEC and the whole family can move. But the partner/spouse and child will get a visitor visa and won't be able to work.

The other option is finding a job and employer that is willing to apply for an LMO http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/work/em...lmo-basics.asp

Then if the job is skilled (for most Provinces NOC 0,A,B, but there are exceptions and Pilot programs in some Provinces) the partner is eligible for an open spouse work permit.

You have to read more. It is not easy and a long process and involves a lot of reading, form filling and waiting if eligible.

How old are you and your partner and the child? What are your qualifications, degrees, references?

We are both 26 and our baby is 8 weeks! My highest qualifications is an nvq in business admin! My partner has no qualifications! We both have loads of experience in our line of work and could get good references!

In all honesty then, without skills that Canada needs and degrees, you're going to find it tough to find an employer prepared to go through the hassle/paperwork/waiting of hiring you, and possibly tough to get PR.

References won't mean anything unfortunately without specialist skills and further education. Worth a try, but do read some more to understand how hard it will be.

What does your partner do and does he have any plans to get some post-secondary education? That's essential if he wanted to apply for PR, and a degree for pretty much anything is the norm in Canada.
