Hi! I don't know of any off hand, but our area (Okanagan Valley in BC) is known for our fruit orchards and wineries. Perhaps the Summerland Research Station which produces new strains of fruit for the world market, as well as other interests, might be beneficial to contact.

I can't provide you with a link as I'm new to the site, but try to Google
"Agriculture BC government, BC Tree Fruits and Summerland Research Station/Ornamental Gardens"... hopefully these will give you some assistance.

Good luck!

Hi all My name is David and i am considering a move from Ireland to Canada (possably Calgary). I am an architectural technician in Ireland and do not relish the prospects of working in Ireland during the recession we are currently in now.

I would like to continue to work as an Architectural Tech in Canada if possable but i am also qualified as a carpenter which i could go back to if i have to.

Hi all. My name is Emma and my husband and I are thinking of moving to Canada. I am a beauty therapy lecturer and my husband is a personal trainer.... does anyone have any knowledge on employment for us.? I's really hard to know where to start. We have been in touch with a company who we can apply to for a visa but we're unsure about the process. Why does it take so long to process? Any advice is much welcomed.

Hello Hello!
My name is Annie and I moved here in May to marry the love of my life! I did two volunteer summer internships at a youth camp in BC where my hubby was employed as a full time carpenter. I was finishing my bachelor's degree in Recreation, Park, and Tourism Sciences (thus why I was interning). So I finish school and married my hubby in September 08....applied for Permanent Residency (via Family Class spousal sponsorship).....and here I am, job-less, bored, and without even a shred of a reply from Immigration....yuck! My husband was laid off (yay economy!) and is now washing dishes at a restuarant while he looks for another full time construction job. The frustrating thing is, I am allowed to live here, I sent off all my paperwork, paid my fees months ago, and Immigration hasn't even sent a letter to acknowlege me! GRRRR!

Any advice on
1) Speeding up the PR process (I really just want to legally work!), how long has it taken for you?
2) Jobs I could do without my PR? (yes, I know cleaning and babysitting)
3) Staying sane in the meantime?? We live on the sunshine coast and its pretty lonely up here, especially when your hubby works all the time and you are stuck at home with no car!

Hi Dean and family,

Welcome to the forum. What sort of maintenance engineering do you do? Have you yet any thought on where in Alberta most appeals or is it just a case of following the work (which is probably the best strategy)? What sort of visa is your immigration consultant suggesting that you target?

IF Alberta ends up being your destination, we hope you settle in well here. It is a fine place to live.

Kind regards from Okotoks, Alberta,

Eamonn & Janet.
