Hi

After getting married, my girlfriend and me want to move to Canada to work.

My girlfriend has a BSc in Countryside Management and really wants to work in this field of work in Canada. She is also thinking of doing her MSc, preferably in Canada.

Is there a step by step guide to find out what way there are to go about it? I have seen a few guides on some other websites, but I would rather get the info from people that have been there and done it, rather than someone who just wants to sell me something.

We hope to visit next year when we are on our honeymoon, is there anything we could/should do when we visit?

Thanks

Catterson,
I'm a Public Land Manager in Alberta which I beleive is comparable to Countryside Management. I've been in canada since I was a child so I'm not able to provide you useful information about the actual process of immigrating or coming over for a MSc degree. What I might be able to help out with is in choosing a university or picking a specific line of study that would be relevant and applicable in the Canadian workforce (at least in Western Canada). I work closely with numerous land resource based consulting firms and large industrial corps, many which are trying to fill positions. Does your girlfriend have a specific type of Land Management background? Biologists, botanists, soil scientists, reclamation specialists, hydrologists and geologists are in demand. Most Land Managers over here have a degree in one of these areas of study as well as professional credentials with the appropriate professional associations. I'm a professional agrologist but my degree is in pedology (soil science).

Check out this link. Home Page <> Alberta Institute of Agrologists

The alberta institute of agrologists is typical of the professional associations for the different sciences. It has a employment section with jobs listed that might be compatible with her education.
