Default Moving to NS with a job offer???. Job Hunting.

Hi, can anyone give me their advice on moving to Canada with the promise of a job offer on the table?

I have a home in Nova Scotia at the moment and I am looking to move out there permanently in the very near future, I have been told that if i was to gain the promise of a job offer it would give me a good start in getting a work permit and moving out there??

Any ideas???

If you can get a job offer, then yes, you can use that to get a Temporary Work Permit, although you'll also need a Labour Market Opinion - your employer must apply for this, to prove they've advertised the job across Canada and been unable to find a Canadian able to do it. Once you've got the LMO and written job offer, you can then apply for a TWP.

If you already own a house in NS, then do also look at the Community Identified Stream of the NS PNP, as that may be an option for you and would get you Permanent Residency before leaving the UK, so would be much more secure than going over on a TWP.

HTH, good luck.
