Which stream and which province? Each province has their own program, and each of them has many different streams. A couple of them have recently ended (i.e. Alberta's Family Stream), but certainly not all of the 50 or so streams available via PNP!!

If you can tell us exactly which province and stream you are looking at, we can advise further and tell you if it's recently been closed.

Assume you are aware that most PNP streams will also require a job offer? I seem to recall you said you'd done a point test and had enough previously, so what has changed - how many points short for a FSW application are you?

OK, so the only streams that have recently (in the past couple of years) been stopped are the AB Family Stream and H1B Streams that I'm aware of. Not aware that any have been changed or cancelled in BC.

But you'd still need a job offer? If you are only a couple of points short for FSW, then can you not get them up by learning French or similar?

A consultant will be able to help you with paperwork etc, but won't be able to make you eligible or find you a job offer, so not too sure that will help at the moment. Best thing to do is figure out exactly which visa route you are eligible for, and if you do need a job offer then get over there and get job hunting.

Good luck!

To claim points for French, you'd need to sit a test (just as you'd need to sit an English test as well). 'Basic' is said to be equivalent to A level so not sure what level you studied it to? But if you could get your French up to that standard (intensive course maybe?), that could work.

As for which test score to believe, only believe the official one on the CIC website - http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigra...sess/index.asp

What does that give you?

Oh that's a shame. Good luck with the job - don't forget to read the Job Hunting section of the Wiki if you haven't done so already. Plan a trip out there and fingers crossed you come back with that all important job offer!

Good luck.
