Smile Newbie doing some research :D

Hi Guys and Gals of the BritishExpats.com Forum

I'm here testing the water and doing my research on a possible emigration to CANADA

I have been there twice before, mainly in Alberta (Calgary and Edmonton) both for work and recreational times and I loved every minute that I was over there.

Now, I've caught the emigration bug and I wish to move to Canada in the near future (1-2 years). Without going to much details I do have my reasons and the commitment to do this however, don't have a clue where to start I have no 'ties' in the UK and I'm possibly in the best financial situation I can think of to start!

Qualifications wise I have GCSE's and a Useless National Diploma in Public Services but no professional qualifications which would be recognizable in Canada, except a Close Protection Qualification which I obtained through my current employer.

This is more likely to be the route I would take into getting an employed job.

So, less of that, I'm off to browse the Wiki

Cheers

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.

Hello and welcome BadgerBox,

I've only lived in Qu├ębec and later Ontario ... you'll find the west much more English, and to such an extent that British Columbia even drove on the near side within living memory. A mate who went on to Alberta about 10 years ago, has often mentioned how he enjoys a better standard of living there than he would in Ontario. And British Columbia has the advantage of the mild weather and ample rain ... just like the UK with mountains

Sounds as if this may be an ideal and exciting time for you to give such a move a go.

With every good wish,
Christian
