  1. I know this is forums name is based on UK immigration but I'm hoping there are Canadaians out there that are working through or have worked through the challlenges with Canadian RRSPs/RESPs and what to do when moving to Australia. Anyone can DM me some Tax accountants that have alot of experience with Canadian taxes and Australian taxes and how they match. I would really like to chat with you.. I'm about to move and I need to get this sorted out ASAP>... Thanks everyone !
  2. Hi everyone. First time poster. I was wondering if you'd be able to provide me with some insight... I'm seeking to immigrate to Australia and am wondering if 1) it is going to be possible, and 2) if it is possible, what path I look into taking. About me: I'm a single, childless, financially stable 38-year-old Canadian citizen who is currently has a career with my province's department of justice as a youth corrections officer. I have 5 years of experience. Prior to that I worked with developmentally-challenged youth and young adults in the community for 5 years. I do not have a university degree, although I do have some post-secondary education and am currently working on a BA in Asian Studies on the side to keep my mind stimulated. I'm also an artist working in the medium of photography, although that certainly won't get me into the country as much more a lifestyle than career. I did some looking into SkillSelect and got in touch with VETASSESS about having my career recognized for the points system. I was informed that I required a university degree in a related field in order to qualify despite my career and years of service. I asked about what other paths to immigration that I might take but VETASSESS were unable to provide me with assistance. To enter my career as a corrections officer, prospective employees do not attend university but instead are required to successfully complete 3 months of full-time training. So the long and the short of it is, I think I have a unique skillset, and a notable amount of experience related to that skillset, but I do not have a related university degree. Is there possibly a way I could still immigrate to Australia? Thanks for your time, J

    Canadian Criminal Check

    Hey Everyone... Just wanted to say how informative this website have been throughout this whole process. My partner went to Australia a month ago, had a job interview, and was hired a couple of days later. So, I am still here in the UK trying to gather all the stuff needed for a defacto partner visa application. As a Canadian, I need to send in an RCMP criminal records check. They have sent me an email stating that the present processing time is 15 to 16 weeks! I'm glad I foresaw how long it would take and sent my request back in mid-July.... Despite it being 3 months already, my information has yet to be entered in their system. Just wondering if anyone else has had similar problems? Thanks!! :biggrin:

  10. Hi.We are new to this Forum. Hopefully this is the 1st of may winters that we will be enjoying in Australia. Being semi retired it is time to get out and about. Since we are really 3 with 'His Nib's Guitar in tow, we are in need of a vehicle to purchase. Landing in Sydney on Nov 2nd then heading up to Coffs Harbour, Brisbane and then the Sunshine Coast. Grateful for any ideas.

    Canadian and want to move.

    Hello ! I was browsing around the internet, because I want to move for a few years in either UK or Australia. I'm not sure if this forum was intended for only Poms going to Oz, but I'll ask advice. So I'm pretty much in a dilemma over which place to choose, I'm fairly young ( 24 years old ), I'm mainly speaking french but I've been travaling a lot around Canada and got my english pretty good. My main concern would be the job situation in both countries. I currently work in a web hosting company, and would try to find a job in that domain. I'm planning to get my job once I get there and got money to live for a few months if things aren't turning out as planned. I'll be leaving around december 1rst. Since everybody here seems to have travelled between both countries, and actually love both, what advice would you give to a young fellow that wants to not settle his life in one country but will surely work and live there for a few years ? Thank you !
  12. Hi everybody ! This is my first post and i'm pleased to meet u and this forum. My situation is: I'm now in Canada working for a canadian company with a sponsor working visa valid untill june 2010. However, i got to leave CA to join my aussie girlfriend in Melbourne next month. My job allows me to work from just my computer, so i might keep working for them as im in australia. But i really wonder about legality of the thing. Can i come under a tourist visa and just working for my company who will pay me on my canadian account ? Or do i need a working visa in Oz ? (im eligible for a second whv if needed) I really have a hard time in my research to find an answer... Do i miss something about the whole idea ? if you have any clue, or links, advise etc, Please share Have a good one ! Poulos
  13. Hi All, This has been a great forum with tons of useful information, just thought we'd introduce ourselves, and join in the fun with all the up's and down's of the migration adventure to Oz. We're Scott and Dina from Toronto, Canada. After planning our future together, we decided on Australia as a good place to try and settle down as a new family. Neither of us has been to Australia yet, so we're sure there will be some new little surprises, but we're both flexible to make adjustments on the fly! We've submitted our application for 175 visa using Dina's skills assessment as an Accountant. We're not quite CSL yet, as we discovered that our IELTS had a 6.5 score, and it must be all 7's to qualify. We have applied online without an agent, and we've gathered some interesting insights that we'll share where we can on this forum... Couple of things that comes to mind: 1) Regarding Police Clearances... check how long it takes to get one from each country that you need it from (12 months residency or longer), and adjust accordingly. We decided to Front Load ours from Russia first since it can take months to receive the results. Canada can produce them in 4 days. Last thing you want is to tack on a couple months to the visa process unnecessarily. 2) Medical exams... even though it says to do your medical exams right after your application online, there does not seem to be any penalty for not doing it right away... by doing it so early we are at risk of having a short time window to fly over to validate the visas. This was the only thing that we found not clear about the online process. 3) Uploading documents with the online application. We found it more reassuring to submit electronic documents via email, since we automatically received a confirmation that the documents were received. 4) We are becoming experts with the IELTS test. Luckily in Canada, you can take it repeatedly, and usually with only 5 business days notice. 10 days wait for the results. That's it for now. Based on the ever-changing info/requirements, we think that we'll be flying over Sept / Oct 09 to Sydney to get set up. Can't do much for jobs etc until the visa is processed. Anyone else headed to Sydney in that time frame, looking forward to hearing from you. Cheers all, Scott & Dina
