I don’t quite know which route to take as i am a little scared of up routroutingfamily for 2 years then being turned down for permanent residence, then having to come back to the uk and start again without any money. Am i being naive in thinking that i can come to Canada as a roofer, have i any chance.
In order to get a TWP, you need to have secured the job and your prospective employer needs to apply for an LMO (the LMO is to proof they are unable to find a suitable Canadian to do the work within a specified time frame)

Armed with the job offer and LMO you can enter Canada and get a TWP at the airport/immigration

I was successful in getting a job from the UK with my specialized niche IT skills and experience. Only after 3 months of 300+ applications did I get 1 (ONE) interview.

Most ppl find it's easier to be in the country and meet up with prospective employers......but even if you do secure the job, they will need to get LMO, which can be denied, especially if your skills are not in demand.

My gut feeling is that roofers are not in demand :-( but I could be wrong.

good luck!

Perhaps some employers would take you on if you were in Canada, on a Temporary basis. This will not help you to get Permanent Residence in Canada, however.
My husband also is in a specialised area of IT.
To be able to apply for the Federal Skilled Worker program your job category has to be in the A, B or O NOC codes. These are numbers that Canada gives to their job descriptions. To be able to apply, your job needs to in the Category O, A or B. Here is a link to where you can find out about this.
http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigra...ol/tool_01.asp
If you are not on the A, B or O lists, you cannot apply for the Federal Skilled Worker route.
Some other route may be suitable for you but FSW may not be.
Take a look and try to find your skills.
This link will help you to see if you are eligible for FSW.
http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigra...tool/index.asp
There is also an eligibility tool where you can calculate your points - this is the OFFICIAL one from Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigra...sess/index.asp
These links should give you everything you need to know about the Federal Skilled Worker route.

FSW 2 - arranged employment

For your application to be eligible for processing, you must:

* include the results of your official language proficiency test, AND
* have a valid offer of arranged employment, OR
* have one year of continuous full-time paid work experience in at least one of the occupations listed here.

.....so get a job and apply for FSW 2

This follows on directly from spaceace's quote;
"Your work experience must be:

for at least one year, continuous, and paid (full-time or the equivalent in part-time), AND
Skill Type 0 (managerial occupations) or Skill Level A (professional occupations) or B (technical occupations and skilled trades) on the Canadian National Occupational Classification (NOC) list, AND
within the last 10 years."
Is roofing or hairdressing on the A, B or O list?
If not, they are not eligible for FSWCat2.
I have a contact who had an LMO and was working on a TWP who applied for FSW Cat2 but her job was not A, B or O, so they rejected her application.

Oh, that's good!
Well then, use the links spaceace and I have posted and you will find everything you need to see if you are eligible on points. You need 67 or more.

"Ok just checking iv got to get a job first then apply for a twp then when i land apply for a fsw?"
Yep, that's it.
Go over and knock on some doors. That's what my OH did (after a lot of research, of course!)

You can't apply without arranged employment anyway - if your job is on the list of 29 eligible occupations then you can apply without arranged employment, but as yours is not, you need the permanent job offer to be eligible.

OK, in bullet points.
1) Get a permanent job offer
2) Employer applies to HRSDC for LMO
3) If LMO is received, get a TWP (if you want to go to work there straight away)
4) Apply for FSW Cat 2

Check the wiki for all the abbreviations if needed.
This is all assuming that the points check out when you have the job offer.
Good Luck

Just remember that on a TWP you will be tied to your employer, so if anything goes wrong then you may want your house to return to. Hopefully it won't, but we have seen people on the forum be made redundant on a TWP and have no option but to return to the UK, so perhaps something to bear in mind?

Yep, we were worried about that, especially in these times of recession.
Unlike many others, we are not selling our house until the Permanent Residence comes through the door! It means I am here in the UK alone keeping house and cats until then while OH works in B.C alone, which is horrible, but we thought discretion was the better part of valour and decided not to risk it.
To the OP, a word about the timescale. It takes quite a while to go through the process from start to finish - check the footnotes of the posters on this site to see just how long it might take you to become PR. You might be surprised.

Yep, budget for ~2 years from the point when you put your application in, to be safe.
