Wanting to move to Canada, any help is greatly appreciated!

Post Posted: Tue Jan 24, 2017 2:22 am

Hello,
My girlfriend and I met in 2015 at a summer camp in New York and I want to know what options I can look into to move over to Canada and work/live there. She has applied for a masters in Edinburgh so hopefully they'll accept her and I'll have a year + to work on this dream. I've lived with her in total for around 7-8 months in total in Canada since October 2015 and we've been together just over 18 months.

- Graduated with a 2:1 in 2014 - Business Studies with Accounting
- Worked as a butcher for my whole time at university and then worked at a summer camp in New York for 2 summers. Travelled after that around America and then lived with her.
- I have funds too, around £15,000.

I am more than willing to work on any schemes that will help me in making this a reality and as I have mentioned if she gets in to Edinburgh I'll have around 2 years to plan this and work on it.

Thanks for any ideas/input you guys have!

Where are you coming from and what nationality are you both?


When applying and filling in the forms they need to have proof of how long you have been together so keep any emails and Facebook messages showing this along with any flights you may have booked together or holidays ect.

Have you both thought of studying in Canada on a student visa? There are routes in this way too. Lots of information on the CIC website. Good Luck to you both.
