My name is katie, I am new to this forum so a bit stuck on how to talk to you all.

I mean it can't be as bad as it is here can it?. The trouble is I have looked at numerous web sites regarding the process and they are all so confusing. So I was wondering if any of you kind expats could shed some light and info regarding the process, I also have a daughter and two lovely dogs...what are the decent areas or countys in canada to live in that have good schools decent people and nursing jobs?. My speciality is spinal and Neuro, but I have also recently finished a degree in health visiting, I don't speak french, but I do speak fluent Greek, if that is of any use. So now you know a little bit about me any help would be very much appreciated, and also it is brilliant that you have a web site like this because i really am rubbish on the net...many thanks

Katie - welcome to the forum.

You might want to copy and paste your whole question above into a new thread. Because you have started a new topic in the middle of a thread about horrible neighbours a) it's called a thread-drift and b) the people you might want to answer your question will not be reading or looking to help you half way down an old thread about something completely different.

Good luck with your plans.

I understand you are a new member and are not used to these forums, but you also will have to understand that by posting your situation and wanting help and questions answered in a thread that has nothing to do with your situation is considered as hijacking a thread.
You should go to the Immigration sub forum in Canada and start your thread in there that way you will probably get the information you require.
The wiki bar at the top of the page also has information about Canada and by using the search thread you can search for threads about nursing in Canada or areas to live in etc etc.
As for the Greek reference have you ever heard of the expression
It all sounds Greek to me
This is commonly used when you read something that you dont quite fully understand or someone says something you dont understand
Perhaps they dont use that expression in the UK anymore.

Yours aye, AS...'not Ex Mil"...
Yes we had the Military Police out. Nothing the chain of command can do other than back us in requesting a move and have his DO speak with him about his wifes behaviour. The housing is all dealt with by DE OPS Housing and first thing you have to do is write a formal letter of complaint to the correct Housing Office and then wait for a reply.

They will then investigate and issue the said neighbour with a warning of possible eviction if more complaints are made etc

Other than that we can put in a request to move to a different property but that again will take a couple of months.

Thats ok Katie.

These threads usually wander off topic anyway

They're a witty bunch on here so don't take offence

Best of luck in getting some advice to your questions

I used to do that
