You are welcome.

Try applying for well over 200 and not one iota of a reply - that is soul destroying, believe me!

Aside from that, the Canadian way of hiring is much slower than the UK. You may think that you haven't got anywhere and then 2 months later you get a phone call inviting you for an interview - particularly with large corporations, hospital groups and City offices - so don't necessarily think you have been unsuccessful just because you have heard nothing after a week or two.

Even if you were to find an employer willing to apply for an LMO for you in the next week, it would be several weeks if not months for them to obtain an LMO.

Perhaps you would have been better waiting until your husbands' LMO was approved before moving here?

Many schools have Parents' Associations or "friends of ..." who organise fund raising stuff. These tend to be volunteers
