Subject: Provincial Nominee Program & Funds
  Hi again

My wife and I got fantastic advice from you guys, which we have followed up with good results.

New question... If my wife IS accepted as a Provincial Nominee (which it looks like she will be), do we still need to prove our funds? We´re debating whether to hold onto certain monies or invest... will we still need do show available funds - as in cash money? (Bit embarrassing to ask the nice lady interviewing us!).

Thanks again for all the help guys.

If your wife gets PN through a job offer, then no you will not have to show proof of funds.

Which province are you guys thinking of applying to, BC? Sounds like you are pretty confident about aproval...good, I´m curious to know how.What have you found out so far.

good luck

I´m not 100% sure, but, as far as I understand it you have to prove you have the funds. This does not mean that they have to be in cash. They can be invested, but you will have to prove that your investment is worth that amount. This is where you may require a little bit more paperwork.

Hi IDO,

Well, we´ve been contacted by a couple of employers in BC who are telling us they will take care of lots of the paperwork during the move, and that it will take 6 to 8 months. Seems we´re very lucky - there´s a major shortage of specialist medical staff in BC and as soon as my wife sent her CV out, we were inundated with replies!

Good job about my wife´s occupation - I´m a sales guy. I can´t imagine BC has a desperate need for the likes of me!!!

That´s why I´m using this forum for advice - we don´t want to get too over-confident and excited yet! (I must stop looking at property websites!!)

If you have an offer of employment proof of funds it not necessary because you already have employment that would assist you with establishment. The funds are for six months which could be the rime frame to find suitable employment and to establish yourself.

OMG - we desperately need specialist medical staff. We need smart sales guys like you too. If your english is good - you won´t have any trouble. what area of sales are you in?

If you are motivated and flexible, there are lots of jobs out there.

Sharon,

I´m a Business-to-Business salesman, mainly in electronic and electrical components.

BC really needs sales guys? This just gets better and better!


ROY - great info, thanks. What if my wife has a job to go to but I don´t? (Worse case scenario hopefully.)

Since your wife would be the principle applicant, only she would need confirmed employment offer, even if you´re still searching.

Question: Did those potential employees mention how long it might take to obtain licensing for your wife. This could take a few months by itself (usually more than 4 months), before you can even apply for immigration...but even then, it´s till worth it.

If you wanna get there even faster, she could obtain a work permit, and you would also get one to work legally in Canada, and once you guys arrive, apply for provincial nomination/immigration etc.

Hi again,

These guys have just told us that they´ll take care of the majority of the immigration paperwork etc, and that it should take 6 to 8 months. That said, I´ve been looking at other posts on this forum and I´m realising that even 8 months may be a bit optimistic! I wonder if the route you mentioned (work permit first) is what our potential employers are thinking of?

Either way, we´ve gotten too excited now! I´m even looking at used car ads! Sheesh!! Must calm down!!
