Question Wanting to Emigrate (UK Canada)

Hey guys,
So for a while I've been interested in moving to Canada (or north North America). No area in particular, just not the City, closer to the country. I'm from the UK, but I'm really interested in moving out there - not any time particularly soon (funds... lack off...) but in time.

What I want to know is, are there any bureaus or anywhere I can find out some info: Cost of living, cost of bringing the horses over, length of quarantine, cost of houses and land, if I'd have to retake my exam as a Dental Nurse (Dental Assistant), average wage for the same job Etc

So, is there anywhere I can find all this out? I know in a few years or whenever I do have the funds, it may have all changed, just looking for a bit of info :)

Thanks in advance

Sorry it's all typed a little hastily and a bit random, just wondering if anyone can help :)

You'd find it really hard to get into the US without a job to come too and unless you have some really high end qualifications and experience no company here would be able to claim that they couldn't find a US citizen that could do the same job just as well
I'm not sure but I think you'd have to re-take at least some of your qualification as a dental nurse too
You would probably find it easier as a UK citizen to get into Canada, Australia or New Zealand

Thank you for your advice :) To be honest I would be more keen to move to Canada anyway, I just mentioned Northern USA as I wouldn't mind there either if it would be easier to move to. Do you know of any bureaus or anybody that I could get in touch with that could give me more information?

I would suggest that the High Commission of Canada in the UK would be the place to start as they handle all immigration into Canada from the UK
If you are really serious then you should probably try to afford a long holiday in the country and see for yourself what life's like there.

That's a great idea, I will contact them, and also consider the long holiday there too :)

You might PM Goldenhorse on here. She immigrated from the UK to Canada and just got her Canadian citizenship a few months, or maybe a year ago...

I immigrated to the US from the UK, and the short answer is, that you can't really come to the US just because you want to.
You will be issued a 3 month visa if you come, and it does not allow you to work as you won't have a social security number.

In order to work here, you need to be able to prove that an American can't do your job, or that your job is in short supply. That's not easy. If I were a brain surgeon, then an American brain surgeon could do my job.

I was married to an English guy who was transferred out here by Ford, we remained friends and we timed our divorce to match my marriage to an American, or I would have had to leave.

I can't speak for Canada, I have no idea what it's like there. But as far as America, then I'd suggest you give up on your goal.

Canada is a huge place, and there is a different feel in every province,what do you want to do for work?

We moved 7 years ago, came from the UK to the prairie province of Saskatchewan as farmers. We came through the Provincial Nomination Program which gave us a fast track immigration process because the province needs farmers.

If you Google the different provinces you will be able maybe to narrow down where you want to be, then you can check the skill shortages in that province and see if you will be able to get a fast track entry.

A couple of reading links for you
