Default Question for Andrew Miller...

I applied (with my common law partner) for PR through the skilled worker program in April '04 (AOR 9th July '04) through the London office, whilst living in the UK. I then got a job in Canada (BC) and we moved to Canada on work permits in November '04, we've just had our work permits renewed (Nov '05), they are valid till Nov '06.
My work permit was organised through this scheme, I believe, as the job offer did not have to be HRDC approved.

What I am wondering is, as I have a permanent job offer (dependent on being lawfully able to work in Canada), could my employers
sponsor me through the BC PNP as I am in an area of high skills shortage? Would this speed up my PR application (we haven't heard anything since AOR so far)?

thanks
Suzanne

BC PNP has the slowest process among all PNP's and I wouldn't risk anything at this stage as your case in London is already well advanced. You cannot just change the class you applied under - you have to withdraw your case and apply as PNP nominee.
