HI From Vivienne.

Post Posted: Fri Jan 27, 2006 1:37 am

Hi I am Vivienne and I was wondering if anyone could help me ....I am Scottish and my fiancee lives in Bedford Nova Scotia we have been together for 3 years we spend our lives between Scotland and Canada as we are only allowed 6 months in each others country....I am on disablity in Scotland and we want to marry and hope to live in Canada but do not know how to go about putting our plans in motion ...we went to imigration but no one would see us and we were told to phone a certain number which we did and all we got was an automated service which was not directed to any of our questions ....

I was wondering if anyone could tell me if I could bring my disablity benifiet with me from Scotland ....
Any info about marrying and being together in Canada would be most welcome ....
Regards
Vivienne

You could get married in either the UK or Canada, B U T > Canada will probably not allow you to Immigrate here, if you are on a disabilty pension in the UK. We are interested in people who will be able to work full time here in Canada, and contribute to our economy thru paying taxes.

Canada does not welcome those adults who will be a potential drag on our social welfare system, and our medical care system.

I see that you have been visiting back and forth, why not get married in the UK and live there? Sponsor your b/f as a Immigrant to the UK, and maintain the pension, that you all ready have there ? Surely he is employable there?
