Default which route?

Hey everyone, I am hoping to move to Canada with my husband and our five children. I have been a full time mum for the past 8 years and my husband has worked in the building restoration business for over 16 years. He also started working as a football scout recently and is looking into training to be a football coach.
I am a qualified nursery nurse and have been applying for jobs in Canada I was told if I got my credentials recognized then I would have a very good chance at getting a job. I have looked on the www.pnpapplication.gov.bc.ca website and the Citizenship and Immigration Canada | Citoyenneté et Immigration Canada site for getting in on the skilled worker program but because I haven't worked for the last 8 years it doesn't look like I can get in through this .
My husband's work in the building trade won't help either . So I don't know how to go about it ?
Could I get in if I had a job offer? what savings would we need?
sorry lots of silly questions I'm just finding it very frustrating
Also we will have a place to stay as we will live with my inlaws so accommodation would be sorted lol
thanks
Lisa

Hi and welcome to BE.
Start by having a good read of the Wiki section. It's the forth tab from the left on the blue bar above. It contains a wealth of information and should answer most, if not all of your questions. When you have done that come back with specific questions. Good luck in your journey.

Default Re: which route?

Can I suggest you have another read of your previous thread? Loads of info in there and we looked at your visa options - that thread should steer you in the right direction.

As for savings, for a FSW app you'd need to show at least $32,191 as a family of seven, and then add on perhaps another $10k for the visa process for all of you including medicals etc.

HTH, good luck.
