Our situation is a bit convoluted. So I hope someone can guide us to the right direction.
After completing my undergraduate and masters studies, I have moved to Montreal to start my PhD in Computer science this Fall. My wife is in the process of completing hers masters program (Biological science) in US. She will be done in the coming December.
Both of us can show job experience of more than 1 year through our internship/teaching assistantship/research assistantship during our time at the US.
My question is can my wife apply for Express Entry in any province other than Quebec? My concern is me, as a spouse, staying in Quebec will give red flag on my wife’s not having intention of moving to Quebec. So, this is what we are considering:
- My wife finishes her MS and apply for Express Entry as primary applicant to Ontario.
- Once she gets approved she will land to Ontario (and possibly move to Quebec)
Is this possible? As I said my concern is whether it’s the best course of action at this moment.
NB: Quebec announced they will have their own version of “express entry” but the details are still not well documented.
