Thanks for your reply,
firstly did you have any problems converting any of your skills to the canadian market, As a lot of stuff you learn in the army does'nt really convert to anything but we still have that experience. if you dont mind me asking how long have you been out in canada and do you live in NS. Are there any job trends at the moment which i could use my resettlement to increase the chance of getting employment?.

Much appreciated.

I read that you still have 2 years to serve, the thing is the world sittuation changes on an almost daily basis, so what ever info Dave gives today will most certainly be of little help 2 years down the road. If you and family are dead set in coming to Canada start now though with your application as that can take about 4 years. Unless you intend to come ona PNP system, which might not exist in 2 years.

Cheers gremmie,

Yea we are dead cert on canada, I could be out next April if the right situation arose. We were looking at the PNP route as i spoke with a few people at a emigration fair the other week from NS. The other thing is trying to get all my qualifications changed to match civi speak or more so canadian civi speak.
Whats the main stream for jobs in NS shipping mining ect?.

Thanks again mate.

R u sure it is $9080. I don't think its affordable. The price is so high. Search for other driving schools which provide at low cost.
Florida Traffic School
Drug and Alcohol Course

$9080 is for Class 1 in Nova Scotia - we've just been given the same info.

Any thoughts on if this is worth it - they quote 95% of those who take the course find work straight after taking the course.

However, we've searched on Labour Market Information in Canada and it only quotes average hourly salary as $20. That really wouldn't be worth shelling out nearly $10k...

Does anyone know if this is about right? Seem to be able to get $20 an hour driving a bus (with training on the job).
