Calgary area.I will be this summer 49 years of age i am a Machine tool maintenance electrician and have been with a major aircraft manufacturer the last 20 years in this position.Will my age and obviously older age count against me if we do eventually get admitted?.I am going to attend the Canada expo in June in Leeds and if i could get any job offer how much would this help ?.How much manufacturing industry is there in the Calgary area?.My brother-in-law emigrated to s.w. Calgary 7 years ago and we would like to be somewhere in that area. Regards Phil.

I believe you are awarded points based on the age that you are on the date that you apply.

I was 51 when I applied and received my 90 day update letter on 8 February at just turned 54, so there are some older applicants in the system!

My husband is the principle applicant on our application, he was 51 when we applied, 2.5 years ago. I think as long as you have the points, you are fine, they assess them all the same.

Job offer has to be a good idea, currently I think it is about 5 years + for SW applications.

Hi Phil
We are going to Alberta via skilled worker route, due to fly out in 6 weeks....you will find you will get more points for your qualifications combined with years of experience, I believe the term is you are a Journeyman. If you have qualifications backed up with your years of experience you are very high in the skilled worker category.

Kind Regards

Julie

Thanks for your replies.
Julie(Rhodeys) how long has it been since you made your initial application?,would i be better trying the PNP route if possible?,up to a 5 year wait for somewhere that has such a major skills shortage and this will only increase because of the oil based boom happening in Alberta is,i fear just going to be too long especially given my age!!!.

My opinion, and it truly is based on experience and not knowledge! TWP application is quick and efficient, we are told by my employer, if we are happy with one another in the next 6 months they will sponser us for PR and I know that PR is processed more quickly when in Canada. Our experience has been....I had a telephone interview with my future Manager on the 17th December 2007, I got my Job offer on the 21st December, my LMO by the 5th January, sent the paperwork to CHC on the 7th January, request for medical 28th January, had the medical on 14th February and we got our TWP through 2 1/2 weeks ago! It was all very easy. But I applied with a job offer and LMO . I hope this is helpful.....
PR is a long drawn out process so I believe and the time span is lengthening...If you can get a job offer under Skilled Worker basis, I think it's the best way for now...

God luck...PM me if I can help anymore, always happy to help if we can

My hubby is an industrial electrician in canada or journeyman electrician as they like to call them in alberta.
you need to get assed first with the AAIT to see if you have the right qualifications and experience. Once done the quickest route is job offer, then LMO etc.
If you need any info etc just yell, we have been at this a year now and in 2 weeks we are off for interviews etc, cant wait
