Default Work permit routes

Hi all,

my wife and I are currently in the early stages of considering a move to Vancouver; we visited some friends in Metro Vancouver last year and were taken by the whole of BC that we visited.

The plan is (provisionally) a two year move, keeping open minds. I've been in preliminary discussions with a potential employer who mentioned the prospect of going through the LMIA route, and being open to making a job offer.

While we plan the practicalities of a move are there any disadvantages to entering into the IEC Working Holiday pool that we're both eligible for, to have at least one iron in the fire.
Would being in the pool for the time being create any problems for any subsequent applications such as the LMIA or Skilled worker routes?

Any knowledge or opinions are greatly appreciated.

No disadvantages whatsoever from entering the IEC pool.
Getting a positive LMIA is a lot harder as basically the employer has to advertise the job under certain criteria and then prove no qualified Canadians or PR's of Canada applied for the job or had the qualifications required.
What employers will tell you and what they can actually do are 2 different things.

As said if you are eligible for IEC it is far the easiest way to come and work in Canada on a temporary basis.

There are also routes to transition from IEC to permanent residency, assuming you were eligible, if that it the route you wanted to take.
