Red face Hi Everyone.. in desperate need of Advice RE: moving to Canada..

Hi everyone, totally new to forum sites so a little nervous lol

I'm posting on behalf of my hubbie, he is 16 years Infantary..and 3 plus years FTX Logistics..which is a good wage but really hard company to work for..and to be honest we have 3 small children and he dosn't want to go to Afghan or in war zones anymore..we have always been interested in moving to Canada for a better way of life..and with the current state of the UK.. now more so than ever...he has everything you can have on his licence..and has been driving HET's for 3 years..he loves trucking..and is eager to get out in Canada.. the only problem is we dont know where to start..there are so many ads asking for UK drivers and me personnally i'm scared of scams ..we cant afford to do this more than once...one question is.. will they take you if you've been bankrupt...and which areas are best for raising a family + wage wise...I'd love any comments and advice ..sorry about the essay lol

Thanks guys

vicky

Hello Vicky...welcome to BE.

Check out our Canada forums...for information and tips about moving to the Great White North. We also have a Trucking forum for your husband to take a look at. Many of the people posting in that forum are either trucking in Canada or would like lto.

I'm sure you'll enjoy taking part in the Canada forums. Should you need help with anything site related please give me or any mod a shout...we will be pleased to help you.

Good luck.

Hello and a big welcome to BE.

Excellent information can be found in the BE Wiki, not forgetting the Living and Moving Abroad forum that will help you, another set of great help is the permanent threads at the TOP of each forum, they are very pertinent to that particular forum and makes sensible reading.

Moderators deal with any problems that arise such as inappropriate posts, spammers etc, you will find their names at the bottom right hand side of each forum's index in bold font.

Please contact me if I can give you any further help.

Rosemary

There's a few threads on Westcan in the Truckers forum.

Little word of warning they can be a bit abrupt in that section though. Truckers tell it like it is and there's no pussy footing about with that lot, but they are good at sharing info and experiences and tell it like it is. So you should pick up some good background stuff there.
