Default UK - Ontario via job transfer

I recently posted in the nursing section about planning ahead for a move...

The company that my husband works for has an office in Ontario so could do a transfer. Would it be easier for us to move via him doing a transfer with his work rather than me going through my job (RGN) and then I can work on doing any bridging courses and the NCLEX once we have moved.

Could anyone advise on what the process is if we were to take the transfer route?

Thank you in advance.

Hi, welcome to this side of the forum!

An intra-company transfer TWP is one of the quickest and easiest routes to Canada, so if he's eligible that would be a great option. As you say, you can then sort out your courses whilst there, and whilst working part-time if you wanted to, and you could apply for PR alongside it all (if eligible).

Here's the Wiki article about intra-company transfer TWP's, so you can see if he'd come under one of the three categories and qualify for one - https://britishexpats.com/wiki/Intra...ransfer-Canada

HTH.

We did the transfer. The process was easy. Took about 3 months between our decision to move and landing in Canada. Expenses related to the transfer were covered. Both got work permits for 3 years. That was enough time to get permanent residency while in Canada.

This was over a decade ago, and the specifics will have changed but I am sure its still a good way of moving to Canada if that’s what you want.

They are. It was actually even quicker pre-Covid, you could just rock up at the airport and get a work permit if you had the required documentation (as per the Wiki link above). Now of course that's not possible, you must have the work permit before being allowed to travel, but it's still a very quick and easy way to get over there if eligible.

Best of luck.

Yes, the actual bureaucracy of immigration took no time at all. We signed some letters drafted by the lawyers. Then we turned up at the airport in Montreal and had our passports stamped with 3 year work permits.

Preparation took a bit of time though. Within the 3 months period we went on a “familiarization” trip to Canada to check out the place and find somewhere to rent. And got the 3 year work permit on arrival. And then sold our house in England. And rented one on Canada. Then we moved.

That's incredible! I wasn't expecting it to be such a quick process mainly because doing the move via me being a nurse takes such a long time. Once we have the work permits and have been in Canada for a while how do we go about about applying for PR?

It will depend on which route you’re eligible for (if any). You’ll need to research and see if you’d qualify for any routes - note you don’t need to have been in Canada ‘for a while’, you could apply anytime (from the UK if you prefer and are eligible).

If you think you’d want to stay permanently I’d definitely recommend you research routes to PR sooner rather than later - it would be awful to move and then not be able to stay.
