I would avoid Alberta at the moment , Far too much bureaucracy to get nomination , Which entitles you to apply for PR ,

Look at SK or MB then move out West

Wife could get a work permit under the AINP , Its been said on the main forum you need at least $80k a year for a decent lifestyle in Calgary , With 2 wages you could do this easily , I don't think that figure is far off the mark either , Theres plenty earning less than that Depends on your personal spending habits and how much you are bringing over for a deposit or renting. First six to 12 months is the hardest , Once you get those behind you you'll be glad you made the move

Having said that see my other reply .

If you get a job your wife will get an open work permit that runs for the same length as yours. This means she can work for any company that will employ her she does not need an LMO, so it much easier for her to get a job and you will need it for that extra income. But like KB says its hard at first but worth it in the long run!

The open work permit applies to Alberta, I can not comment on any other province!!
