Default Moving to Lindsay Ontario

I am looking to move to the Lindsay area of Ontario
Where do I start
Seems there is so much to look into and would be good to know what order I do things in and where the best place to start is

Thanks in advance
Mark

I assume you have your visa sorted and are purely asking about the logistics of moving?

Have you checked out the wiki section of the Canada forum yet? If not, suggest you start here:

I have done nothing at all
No visa no nothing
I am literally starting from scratch point 0

So is the visa the best thing to look into first

Thanks

Without question!

No point in thinking any further than that for now. Again, wiki is your friend, suggest you start here and follow the links:

In which case, I will move your thread to the visa section of the forum.

Out of interest, any particular reason you've looking at Lindsay? If you need a job offer to get a visa (a lot of people do), then you're going to limit yourself quite a bit. Do you have another half there maybe?

Start with this visa eligibility check from the CIC website, and then we can help you figure out the next step once we know what that says - Do you want to come to Canada, or extend your stay?

HTH, good luck.

OK, but do you need a job offer to get a visa, what did the above say? If you do need a job offer, then it's not a question of it being a high paying job, it's the fact that you'll have to find an employer prepared to spend $1000 and go through a lot of paperwork and hassle to hire you, plus have skills that can't be easily found in Canada. Hence why if you do need a job offer to get a visa, limiting yourself to such a small area could make it far, far, trickier and you might want to look at other towns (or even other provinces) to give yourself more of a chance.

The big chunk of change is good, for some visas you have to show you have a certain amount in your bank account, so that's a big tick.

It will, and it's more than the proof of funds amount needed, but that alone won't get you a visa. But once you've worked out if you're eligible for one (it will depend on things like your age, your highest education level, your job etc), then you can see if you'll need a job offer or not.

Best of luck.
