Re: Looking for advice with my PRTD

Then that's a potential problem IMHO. They can use your passport as a means to ensure RO compliance. In your case though, it's a limited method of doing that as the UK never stamps its own citizens,...

Re: Montreal College of IT

There are private colleges in the UK now that offer short or long courses in web development training. That's because it's a high demand profession and pays a decent salary and therefore anyone...

Re: Looking for advice with my PRTD

Re: Best job sites?

It is who you think it is and they often don't charge for visa assessments atm. They've been offering them free during Covid because they've been unable to do their normal thing of showing up in the...

Re: Best job sites?

Whether or not you have been scammed by the consultation form that begins with a B will depend on whether or not you've paid them anything yet. They're kind of infamous and if you search their name...

Re: Quarantine for COVID 19 discussions.

It was never going to be a fixed price. From the get go, they said it could cost over $2000. I think that was a method to deter people who thought they'd just be able to offset a cheap winter break...

Re: Best job sites?

I'm not being funny but at your age and with your work background, that's your route. The only likely alternative that could work would be a study permit but that would cost a fortune.

Re: Best job sites?

You don't need to name anyone here and in fact please don't but does the name of this immigration agent begin with the letter B by any chance?

I'd agree with the other comments on here that it...

Re: Registering for OHIP

Ahh, thanks. So I don't need to register then for now and if I need any medical care can just show up without a card?

Re: Moved from Covid Quarantine > Political posts on the subject of Covid Quaran

You can't really calculate the costs in advance and the options are limited. There are only a few in Toronto and a measly one in Vancouver. The Pearson Airport Holiday Inn averages around $250-300...

Re: Revolut for UK to CA transfers (vs Transferwise)

I thought you could already do that anyway. I was counting on that to pay the deposit on my new condo so I'm glad they've introduced it in time. :lol:

Re: Recent draw

I've never gone through CEC so I don't know but someone far more knowledgeable than me will know the answer to that one I'm sure. You can always just proceed with the application though and then just...

Re: Recent draw

I wonder if we'll see the same thing as what happened a few years ago. Back when I did mine in mid-2017, I received a PNP EOI from Ontario within hours of creating my EE profile and then a federal...

Re: Canadians Increasingly Stuck In The Economic Conditions They Were Born In

Re: Petition to stay in EU for 180 days

I used to have an OHIP card when I was on a TWP years ago and returned to Ontario as a settling PR last week. Obviously they're waiving the normal 3 month residency requirement for enrolment at the...
