Default my options from here??

Okay so I'm nearly 27, educated to Masters level (English Literature) and speak fluent French (I've done the TEF/TCF and have the certs). I also had a year of work experience in a high-end admin job and had applied for PR in Canada via the Skilled Worker route - I had enough points etc.

However, I applied after February 28 2008 so was rejected

I had spent a year working in BC on a BUNAC student visa and now I'm back here working on a BUNAC non-student visa. I've spent the winter working as a "server".

So I LOVE Canada and want to stay here long-term. I'm wondering how I should go about this though now? I've been eyeing up the Welcome BC website and the Entry Level and Semi-Skilled Pilot Project (considering I've been working as a server) as well as the Skilled Workers route.

Like I said, I really really want to stay here and just need some advice! Or even a lead as to where to turn to for advice??

(Oh yes, my year of work experience would classify me as an Administrative Officer, code 1221)
