Not sure what you mean by 'don't have to make any kind of declaration', but just to clarify, you absolutely do have to declare the offence in visa applications. You should be deemed rehabilitated, so it shouldn't be an issue, but you must declare it for CIC to make that decision.

Just checking, but when have you visited Canada? Rehab is needed even for visits, but not sure if you visited during that timescale?

Only 100,000 more to tick off then.
Ok great . Will do that and yes that was the only time! I'm a good upstanding citizen !

Right on to the next 100,000 !!

Got it. Will be declaring.

I only visited Canada prior to this happening - some 16 years ago. We are going out though soon to look at some properties so will have to get this paperwork sorted.

Here I go again - Monday morning panic - MMP!

I have looked at the documents needed for Deemed Rehabilitation and they state you need a letter from the courts.

I must have been given about 15 different numbers to call, being pushed from pillar to post and no one can help me! I have emailed the court and left a message on the Canadian Embassy in London - not sure what else I can do !

On the CIC website, it states that you should deem yourself rehabilitated in any case albeit I got banned from driving back in June 2003. The only proof I have of it at the moment is on my old paper driving licence counterpart and my stress level is beyond the ability to rise !!

What do I do other than find some Valium !!!! I don't want to be turned away at the POE! I was up half the night fretting about this !

Oh dear. I can't tell you what to do specifically but I would suggest you take some deep breaths. Maybe find a brown paper bag?

That is an extremely good idea!!! I'm about to give this all up!!! I suggest no one makes a decision to move a family of five and get a job offer within six days! It's horrific!!

I'm even struggling with the come to Canada site ! If I do the eligibility test for a temporary permit and temp stay more than six months it states even though I have now have a job offer I can get the IMP which I don't think I want and if I go through EE with a job offer it accepts that and finds me eligible but I have to do the language tests which apparently I don't need with my NOC level and also that I have to bring lots of money in which I didn't think you needed when you hve a job offer .

And the past is haunting me with the drive drink which is my own fault and absolutely deserved what I got . I was a very irresponsible 29 year old who should have known better but still don't know what to do with the rehabilitation for Canada!!!

I think the paper bag is vital !!

Blimey, that's a lot of exclamation marks.

You don't want a temporary permit, that's not relevant to you (TRP's are for those that aren't from visa exempt countries like the UK, and you couldn't work on it anyway).

That's not correct - you absolutely do need them if you go through EE. You only don't need them if you go via a paper based PNP application.

Sometimes you need it, sometimes you don't, depends on the visa route. But tbh, the amount suggested for a family of five is considered by most to be very low, and you'd usually need much more than that to move and set up life in Canada, so it's better to have it anyway even with a job to go to.

It seems from the above that you're still trying to work out what visa route you might go down? But what has the employer said? It's them that has to pay for the LMIA/or whatever, so usually up to them, and what they want to do. I would personally wait to see what they suggest before panicking about it, as they might only give you one option!

If they do give you the option, then the two possible visa routes were set out in your thread above, so perhaps have another read of post no. 7.

HTH.

Thanks CO! I told them to do the LMIA . I've no idea what On earth I'm doing and they've never dealt with it before but I am guessing I will still be a TWP (if I make it through this process without giving up!!)

But yes technically I'm still undecided. Just want to get on with either option as long as we can get out there, settle down and gain PR hopefully in the future.

Money isn't a problem. I was thinking I was going mad by reading a hundred different things !

I'm going to read for the millionth time the PNP route again. Maybe that is better !! Sorry about the exclamations!!!!!!!

Ah, ok, so yes, if you get a LMIA then you'll be going over on a Temporary Work Permit.

If they've never done it before then do tell them that they'll need to be incredibly careful with the application - more LMIA's than ever seem to be being refused in the current economic climate, and I know that you have specialist skills, but they'll need to prove that they've advertised the job across Canada for at least 4 weeks and been unable to find a Canadian willing, or able, do to the job. ESDC will be very strict with it and want to see details of each person that has applied etc, and why they can't be hired, so make sure they put a good case together for hiring a foreign worker.

Yep, have another read, but if they're already underway with the LMIA then there might not be much point. The PNP is another good option though.

And no worries about all the exclamations!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can get them to not do the LMIA. I literally just emailed them.

I'm going for PNP. Not sure how, because I am USELESS at this but going for it!!!!

Ok, out of interest, why do you think PNP would be better? (It's fine, but just checking your reasons are correct in case you've misunderstood anything!).

Only that I recall you saying that the points remained at 600 because I had a low score prior to a job offer and it's still low because the point system had changed .

Yep, you'll get 600 points for a PNP nomination, so that would pretty much guarantee an ITA straight away as soon as you do apply for PR.

The only thing that you may not have considered is that your nomination will expire after 6 months, meaning you must have applied for EE/PR before then. I know you weee hoping there would be changes to the dependent child age towards the end of next year and delay applying for PR until that happens so your son can be included on your app, but you may have a timing issue to consider.

So if, for example, you got your nomination in March, then you'd only have until Sept to apply for PR, and if the dependent age hasn't changed by then you'd have a very difficult decision to make.

Sorry to give you something else to consider, but thought I'd better mention it in case you hadn't thought of it.

Hmmm, that is something I wasn't aware of. Thanks.

So , looking at the PNP, I have two options. One to apply as a Skilled Immigrant worker and one to apply as a Skilled Express entry. I have the validation code for EE, so would that make it quicker then?

I've put my son into the Working Holiday visa pool and then if he got that he would then go on to finish his degree so I kind of have that covered, if only for a matter of three / four years.

If they want you out here asap then be aware the PNP nomination could take a while - and unless they have received your application by January, you won't be able to include your son.

The employer would need to meet the criteria as well.
