Here's my brief bio.
Hi I am Louise, orginally emigrated to Canada from the UK in 2003, I was the primary applicant under the skilled worker category. Came with my husband and son (Oliver 18 months at the time)
Six weeks after arriving had a major family tragedy which threw me into complete turmoil, homesickness, dilemma, etc etc. Really took the edge off of our exciting move, and I just felt unsettled after that.
Anyway was offered a really good job back in UK in 2005 so returned there for a couple of years. Got bored with life there, and came back to Canada, (Canmore AB) in 2007. Now settled and very happy
I am glad I had the spell back in UK because it helped me to quantify what I really wanted and how I was going to get it. I would be quite happy living in UK or Canada I love them both.
I really look forward to sharing your journeys !!

Hi everyone!

My name is Emmanuelle, I am 33. I emigrated to Vancouver from France back in 2001.

Default Hey there everyone.

I'm Chris, I'm 22 and I live in London, where I work as a Reception teacher.

I'm looking at emigrating to Canada at some point in the next few years, and am in the early stages of researching what it takes to do so successfully (any hints and tips on the process will be greatly appreciated )

Hope you're all enjoying the holiday season and (a slightly early) happy 2009 to you all.

hi everyone. time to introduce.

my name is teresa and i live in scotland with my husband and 2 kids (6&7) and dog.

been thinking about canada for a while now. i visited vancouver for a couple of days in 1996 while on work experience in nw america.

getting started is troublesome - not enough money to go through an agent. deciding where to go. what will the family think if we leave and reading the immigration advice sites is confusing at best with so many ways of entering the country and differing requirements depending on your skill level.

is all the time money and stress worth it in the end??

Hi Teresa,

Firstly welcome to the forum. Your post is great because it voices so many peoples concerns, you are not alone in feeling this way.

To answer your question is it worth it? it was very much worth for me and my family. Although we did move back to UK and back to Canada again so took quite a while to realise what I really wanted!!!

I think the best way for you to start is to get very clear in your motivations for emigrating. Think about what kind of life you want for you and your family. What is important to you all, and why having it will make life better. Don't think in terms of Canada at all just what you really want.... (I have a great little exercise you can use to help with this if you PM I'll email it to you)

Once you have this list, lots of things will begin to make sense. Because you are clear, you will begin to find places that suit your needs, you will realise if the stress, time and effort are worth what you will gain, and you will have the reasons you need to explain your decision to family. You will also gain the motivation to research how you are going to achieve it.

Best Wishes Louise
