Exclamation Some questions!

Hi all

First post in this excellent forum.

1.
With regard to the medical examinations, does anyone know what they are looking for? ie what will cause the appilcation to fail?

I, to my knowledge, have no illness, but would it not make sense to get yourself checked out prior to applying, thereby saving the app fee's, if they is something major wrong?

2.
I do not know which visa route I will be taking yet, might be skilled or business. I have the pdf guide for the business but can anyone provide the link for the skilled, as i am not completely sure which of the 3 guides, for skilled workers, I should be looking at? Federal or Provincial? (Going to BC, so I know its not the Quebec one.)

3.
Are there any restrictions for skilled workers, that you must complete within a time frame upon "landing"? ie, with Business, you have to start a company within 3 years and employe a local canadian for 1 year to keep your PR card.

Thanks in advance for any help.

The medical consists of history, full chest x-ray, blood tests. Looking for any disease or condition that is contagious or would cause excessive demand on Canadian health services. TB, hep, HIV, AIDs etc. Pointless to take a pre-medical medical.

You should be looking at www.cic.gc.ca which is the offical web site for Immigration. You have to apply through the federal system. If you are interested in a PNP (Provincal Nomination) you have to apply first for the provincal certificate, and then federally.

No restrictions on skilled workers.

Have been looking at CIC web site. So if I apply via Federal system I could then apply in PNP? What is PNP? Any benifits of doing this?

You apply for PNP first, it is for applicants who usually can't qualify under the skilled worker, but have a skill that is in demand in the particular province.

A PNP is a provincially nominated person. It really isn't an alternative route around the normal immigration system. A local politican or a department designates you as nominated if you have special skills or some other kind of special circumstance they are interested in.

I also would not worry about the helath exam too much. yes get it by all means as soon as possible, but Canada regularly lets in people with Aid, TB and other not so pleasent diseases. I have not heard of anyone being turned away because of health, or criminal records for that matter either.
