Default Would welcome some knowledgeable advice

hello everyone.
I am very new to this site. I am just about to begin the process of applying to immigrate to Ca. - at long last. However I am confused.

I am a radiographer (X ray tech) by profession, but moved on to become a senior health service manager. My web research shows that I could qualify as a skilled professional using my radiology experience under the PNP. What confuses me is how this works. May be I am being thick but the information that I have seen all seem to suggest that I need to obtain an application pack from a PNP cleared employer first - but I have no idea who these PNP employers are. Is there a middle man/organisation/goverment office that I need to apply to? And will they simply contact me if they need my skill in their organisation. Please would someone clear this fog for me?

Thank you in advance.

No, any employer can apply for a potential immigrant employee to get PR and WP through PNP.

What you have to do first is:

1) Make sure that you qualify for PNP
2) find an employer and convince them that they want to go through the hassle of PNP to employ you
3) then together you and employer apply for PNP

Advantage is that if accepted by PNP then things are fast tracked for you, and you get all your WP whilst you are waiting for PR to come through.

There are lots of threads on here if you do a search

Good luck

It is entirely possible that you could be accepted to immigrate to Canada and then find it impossible to get accreditation from a provincial/territory regulatory body.

That's why so many overseas qualified doctors, dentists, lawyers etc are driving taxis in Canada.

And most of them are rubbish at driving, too.
