"Congratulations!

You have earned 94 points which means that you could potentially immigrate to Canada as a Skilled Worker, and you would therefore have a good chance of being successful in this application based on your skills, qualifications and work experience."

Well...I mean...maybe a weekend in Vancouver is in order.

If you're thinkin' Vancouver you'd best be thinkin' multiples of "CAD$ 12,164"

Ooo I got 89 - I don't want to shift but I was curious about my chances.

I know so many people working here from other countries, there’s got to be a way in. I think the biggest is if your job is in demand. A lot of others were already here in visa’s when they got in with a company that would sponsor them.

I would like to think it wouldn't be terribly difficult given my profession?

Canada's demographics are dependent on net immigration. You're young, you're educated, you have a high earning potential which means you're likely to pay a lot of taxes. Canada Wants You.

Yup! We’ll take you in!

Here are things that add you your points:

- young

- educated

- married

- young kid

- speak English

- speak French (disproportionately a lot of points if you want to come to Quebec)

We have a lot of space and no people so... welcome!

This is only true outside of major city-centres, though. If you want to live in Vancouver or Toronto, for instance, you'll need to be prepared to spend a lot of housing.

I feel that’s true for all major cities in the world. But as a country we have PLENTY of space. Especially in the Atlantic Provinces. They have a pilot immigration program right now where if you get literally any job and live there for 2 years they grant you a permanent residence status.

I met an Environmental Engineer at the bar the other day, worked for Parks Canada. No idea how in demand that is though but I know we have them in the mountains aka. best place on earth.
