Hi guys, you all seem quite knowledgeable on immigrating to Canada. I need to pick your brains, if that's okay.

I am a qualified staff nurse with one years experience and my husband is a quality assurance manager. We desperately want to move to Canada as our daughter and son in law (who is a canadian citizen) and their three children moved back to Canada 7 months ago and our hearts are broken . By the way we live in Scotland.

We are unsure of the best way to get to Canada given our circumstances, we obviously want to get there sooner rather than later. Can anyone recommend the best option for us?

I have registered with the Canadian Nurses of Ontario, waiting to hear from them, then I thought I would start applying for jobs and try to get an LMO and TWP. However I'm not sure whether to apply for FSW or PNP as from reading some of your posts these ways seem to be quicker.

Really confused!!! Help Please.
Thanks in advance.

Forgot to mention our daughter and son in law live in Ontario.

Hi,and welcome to BE.

What is your daughter's current visa status in Canada, is she a citizen or PR?

OK, so it sounds as though the supervisa may suit and then you can hope that they open up parental sponsorship again in the meantime (hopefully with less of a wait now they've got rid of some of the backlog!).

That would be the quickest/easiest route out there although obviously you can't work on that.

If you want to apply for PR before parental sponsorship reopens then look at the Skilled Worker program, although you'll need to be ready to apply on May 4th when it opens so will have to start gathering paperwork asap.

TWP is another option, but as you asked about in another thread, it would be better to go out there on a supervisa first, that would be much quicker and also give you the advantage of being able to job hunt in person.

HTH a bit, good luck.

expect the CNO to take several if not over 12 months and for most IEN's that I am aware of are requiring some form of assessment. Also be aware if your transcripts do not contain clinical and theory hours in Paeds, Mental Health, Obstetrics and Adult you may find problems meeting requirements and eligibility to sit CRNE which will be required when job hunting if relying on TWP to come over. I can not see employers looking at you without eligibility to sit CRNE or have passed CRNE. (most jobs I see advertised state eligibility or passed CRNE)

But, surely, they will not be able to work during this time. If the intention is simply to apply for jobs, meet potential employers, why would the supervisa assist them over, let's say, a regular vacation?

Because it gives them 2 years, versus a max of 6 months. So yes, they can't work (as mentioned above), but it does at least mean they can 'live' in Canada rather than just a shorter visit.

The 2 years may give them enough time to get PR via their daughter or FSW, or just to find a job offer and get LMO etc, whereas the 6 months visitor visa isn't likely to be enough time.
