  10. Hi..Me and my wife want apply to immigrate to Canada. We have different professions. She is nurse and I carpenter. Which profession of these is better to apply with?

  11. My cousin in Canada has found immigration consultant who can said he can get me a job in Canada and prepare the immigration application for $12,000. Is this a normal price because it seems like quite a lot? Is it worth it?

    • Whether its worth it depends on if he actually knows what he is doing and whether he can actually get you a job. In either case though that is a ton of cash. Try looking for a job on your own and either preparing the application on your own of hiring someone who charges more like one or two thousand. For jobs look at: jobsaloon com, workopolis.com, monster com, etc. Remember though that you need to find companies in Canada that hire international workers.

  12. Here you go. You’re welcome.
