Question Living and working in Canada.

Is there anyone that can give us a straight answer?

My girlfriend and I are looking to work and live in Canada, I am a qualified bricklayer with about 6 years experience but also have my lorry licence as well.

My girlfriend is doing her BA honours degree in law, this is a home study course and will not effect any work commitments, She also has experience working in a high street bank for 2.5 years and office, secretarial and pa experience.

We have had many different answers like "you need a job offer to get a work permit approved" and many more stories but we are just looking for one straight forward answer to help us live our dream.

Thank you in advance

If you're under 31 years of age look into the IEC visa.

Thank you for your reply. This visa does not open again until 2014 and then you have to be quick to get this visa.

We were hoping the possibility of a work permit would bean option for us.

IEC would be your quickest/easiest option by far. Even if you could find a job offer tomorrow, the LMO would still take 12-16 weeks, so you're looking at February or so at the earliest to get a TWP anyway. And of course, realistically, finding an employer prepared to go to the cost/hassle of the LMO application is going to take a while.

So in a nutshell, I'd also vote for the IEC!
