Default how do i go about emigrating to canada now

I am looking at emigrating to Canada and I have just taken a assessment with a company. I am 25 and I work in the UK railway industry as a track welder i thought that having this trade would help me get into Canada also my mothers cousin has just emigrated to Canada. I told the company this but they said i am not eligible to enter Canada with my trade and the only way to get in family wise was if I had a wife who was Canadian.I am desperate to emigrate and I was wondering if anyone could help or give me some advice on how to proceed next. thanks

You really need to check out the CIC website and have a read through the various options. I would suggest that you, initially look at the Federal Skilled Worker section - it is fairly straightforward and self explanatory - then put another post on her if you hit difficulties.

It will also let you know what the process is for an application under the Family Class - what relatives qualify etc.

You will also need to be aware that current processing times are 3 years !! - that is once you have collated all the relevant paperwork and sent your application off. 3 years is only to the point of the officer assessing your application, medicals etc come after that

Good luck

This probably misses the point, but if you really want to leave the UK and Canada is proving impossible I understand Australia is having a big push on immigration at the current time, just flagging it up in case it could be an option - they might be screaming for people with your work skills?

If you served an apprenticeship to become a welder this will score you more points. Check the official Canada website self assesment tool:

Having your trade will be of help only if you have a trade certificate, diploma or apprenticeship. If you learned on the job but have no diploma to prove it then your chances are nil.
