What I meant was that the non renewal of a TWP is not the same as redundancy and therefore TWP holders who are near their expiry date should be aware of that. Hence the advice to apply for PR asap if you wish to stay in Canada.

Hi redarmy990

If your on the list and have at least 67 points and minimum required settlement funds ( approx $10k for a single applicant ) & no criminal
you can apply for fsw cat 1, this type of application is currently taking
6-12 months but once approved you can work more or less anywhere in Canada and could if you wanted do a job away from construction.
regards
Joinerboy

yes its the federal skilled worker visa, not too sure how much luck you will have finding two jobs for you and a friend on TWP as valid LMOs are a little like hens teeth. If i were you i certainly consider submitting a fsw cat1 application if you fit the bill, as it can be going through and in the mean time you could still try to locate a job via the TWP route as well.
All the best which ever route you decide to take.

If your occupation tile isn't on the list cross check the closely related job titles in particular the listed 'duties' of these job tiltles because if you can prove you have the minimum required experience in those 'duties' its possible you will be able to apply under the fsw cat1 route.

I did read for the PR applications you have to fall into 3 catergorys (skill on 38 list/job offer/years work experience in canada) or have I got it wrong and its one years work experience in the uk instead of canada? Anyones experiences on TWP route getting laid off, reapplying for LMO's, success stories, etc I would really appreciate your responses
Well, I moved to Canada on a TWP and immediately, I started working on my PR through BC PNP. I was lucky that the whole process took only one year or less (including the nomination). I don't wanna scare you, but to be honest, I didn't feel safe during this year as many people were either fired or laid off.

OK I understand now. Yes once their fixed term is up there is no obligation on the employer to contiune their employment.

Default Re: How risky are TWP's?

I am on a TWP (Start of March 2010) at first my employer wanted me full time but could not wait for the PR time of 6mths+ looking at other forums I see a lot of LMO's have been turned down for IT Support etc.

I am still unsure weather to leave EU for Canada on A TWP as even though you have "Equal Rights" your still the person that be first out, not to worry anyone but you can see on some posts people were nervous for the year its great some worked out were others simply failed.

Good luck to you all.
