Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

Sangat ji, I have been considering moving away from the UK. Mainly just had enough of the place.

I am alone. No family at all nor am I married. I am not educated either.

Has anyone got any experience on the emmigration process for someone in the UK wanting to move to Canada who may be or has been in a similar situation as myself?

I was there this time last year and saw that there is a lot of Sangat there. It's clean, peaceful and generally seems like a great move especially for someone that just wants to get up and leave everything in the UK behind.

I had the chance to speak to someone there who has moved from London and is working in banking/finance but he actually married a Canadian Singhni and was under 30 years of age when he applied for his PR (permanent residence) so it was a little easier for him.

Any ideas, feedback, information or suggestions would be much appreciated.

Akaal!

You have no progenitors?

Well, that's certainly not good for trying to get into Canada.

Go here and figure out how many points you have for immigration to Canada:

Apart from UK high school, I have no further education. The circumstances did not allow for this at the time and went straight into work as I was living alone.

Thank you for the link. 

Akaal!

There isn't much social life or community in Canada. Everything is like 2 hours away, which seems crazy in the UK. 

Thank you for your response.

To be honest, I like a quite life hence. As long as there is a Gurdvara Sahib close by to were I'd move all is ok.

It's easier if you get a job before you land in the country, or if you can show the Canadian government that you can make jobs for local Canadians. (Though easier than even these options is marrying a Canadian citizen, but I wouldn't recommend this). Actually to immigrate anywhere, you should show you can benefit them in some way or another.

Yeah I assumed that too. Will look into work there a little more. 

Probably need to make another trip over there this year to find out the ins and outs.

Haha...why do you say that? Are Canadians that bad? lol

Yeah, a country really only want someone to enter that can benefit the place - I understand that.

Thank you ji

Goodluck bro with your move, I have been in your shoes before considering Canada has a place to move to. But whilst there are a lot of good points for moving there e.g. nice houses, job prospects and quite a few apney, its certainly far from perfect. As mentioned before, everything is far apart and also there are a lot of suleh and somalians there now too.

You need a job offer letter to apply for work permit.

If you can cook, Restaurants do sponsor cooks from overseas on minimum wage basis.

Other options are working on Canadian cruise ship or approaching Baba Amar Singh ji

If by "you" you mean "one", then one does not need a job offer letter merely to apply for a visa to move to Canada (which is what he said, not a work permit). It's just that having a job letter gets you a hundreds of points in the Express Entry point system.

A letter from a province gets you even more points. But to get that letter, you usually have to ... have a job offer. There are other ways, too, but none that may apply to this brother: higher education, having studied in Canada, having $500K ready to invest in Canada.

So yeah, for this brother, he would likely only make the points cutoff if he had a job lined up. For other people reading this thread, you could easily qualify without a job.

OK, bro, whatever you say.

You may want to look into the requirements of the various provinces, except for the most populous provinces of BC and Ontario. They have much lesser requirements for immigration, because they want to fill up their provinces, where nobody lives. Quebec is a whole nother kettle of fish, which its own immigration requirements different from Anglophone Canada. Not sure how much French you know.

Check here and here for province requirements.

Each province has its own website which you will have to go through and determine your points. Good luck.

But one needs the skills points, the right education level and under 35 in the link you gave seems to accumulate more points.
