help,advice and more advice

This forum is for all the jumbled up info about Canada. We've asked that, on the info forums, you please post on the relevant forums, start new threads for new topics, and please keep on topic. Otherwise the info is too hard too find for those coming after, and the already overworked Mods end up having to repeatedly answer the same questions. (If your posting is locked in here, please feel free to post again in the appropriate place.)

Right Paul and Jo,

first of all, you need to do the on-line test to see how many points you have and how you can boost that if you need to.

This bit's helpful:

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/ ... ly-who.asp

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/ ... /index.asp

and

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/ ... /index.asp

If you have sufficient points then you can start the process of immigrating to Canada.

If you have insufficient points, then you can endeavour to boost the points with more education or by other methods, eg finding a wanted occupation, PNP, a job here to get you extra points etc. All the information is on that CIC site.

This is your basic first step.



That's what I think, anyway.

Good luck.

thanks for that jessica,did the test and passed,we are going to to learning france as we only speak a very little bit so that is one area to get better points scored,im doing a plumbing course at the moment so by the time the application is fininshed i would be qualifide by 2 yrs so again would mean a higher points score,but thank again

Hi paj91, and welcome to the forum :D

Can I please suggest that before you send off any paperwork that you check your grammar?

- Sentences start with a capital letter
- It's French, not france you want to learn
- It's Plumbing, not PLUBBING (see your profile)
- It's course, not corse
- It's practitioner, not practiconer
- It's Manitoba, not manatoba
- It's minute, not minate
- It's qualified, not qualifide
- It's Canada, not canada

You might think I'm nit-picking, but mistakes like these don't look good on an application form...

You asked for advice - I gave it. An application form scattered with as many grammatical errors as your posts would give a very bad impression, and could lead to you being rejected. I'm sorry if you don't see this a useful advice.

@ pag91

Our members do try to help people achieve their dreams of a new life. However, people have to help themselves a bit too. Quite honestly I find some of your postings almost unintelligible.

Mark was giving you good advice and rather than thanking him, you accused him of not having good manners. This is unacceptable to me. Mark is an incredibly helpful Site Admin and does not deserve abuse such as you gave him.

I suggest you apologise to Mark. Otherwise, I'll just remind you that this is a free service, to which you have not contributed anything, and if you don't like it or can't be polite to our Mods and Admins, then you are FREE to go somewhere else.

At the risk of being shot at :hide: I think that both Jessica and Gozo Mark have given great and useful advice.

I appreciate that you may have taken the advice the wrong way but all we have to go on is what we see and read on here.

If we spot lots of mistakes then we do not want you to make those again on your application form. It would be a shame to lose points on a detail like the English Lang / Lit - CIC are so nit picky that as mods and site admins we would be amiss not to forearm you.

Think of it from another perspective - say you are rejected due to spelling and grammer - would you not ask "why did no one ever tell me".

Good luck in your quest.

Personally my advice:
1/ Always check the CIC web site and the Canada House web site as they are constantly updated.
2/Check your spelling and grammer - we all make mistakes - I am an Eng Lit Grad and I get it wrong as well at times.
3/Decide if you like beaches or lakes.
4/ City or rural
5/Is public transport important to you.
6/Rent or buy
7/Land or back yard.

There are plenty more but that's a start.

Hi paj - I'm sorry you interpreted my posts the wrong way, I was only trying to help. I'm guessing English isn't your first language. We all make spelling mistakes whilst typing, and thats why hitting the "spellchecker" before posting (as I tend to do) is a good idea. No hard feelings I hope :D

Whereas for someone who is marginal on points, and doesn't own a geriatric chicken (both issues I suspect are true in this case), it could make the difference. It could also make a difference to a prospective employer who came across this forum.
