It’s great to find this community!
I have been considering moving to Canada for a while, with the main reason being that family reunion (with parents) is almost impossible here.
Due to personal reasons, I am looking to minimize the time I would need before I am eligible to sponsor my parents. Currently, it’s 3 years on federal level (outside Quebec) and 1 year for Quebec. Therefore, Quebec is a clear winner as for my purpose.
To go to Quebec, I have considered 2 options:
Directly applying for a job there, find a company who is willing to sponsor a LMIA, move there, work for some months and then go with the Quebec Immigration Program (Arrima). After a year of working, I can apply for the sponsorship.
Go with EE, land in Canada first, after becoming a PR, try to find a job in Quebec , move there and then work for a year.
Both approahces have obvious pros and cons, but with approach 2, the question is: Is it even possible at all?
After all, EE states clearly that the candidate should not intend to live inside Quebec, I know once one gets PR one has the rights to freely move within Canada, but what if I want to apply for other immigration procedures afterwards? Will Quebec then find out that I migrated through EE and hence consider me untruthful and my sponsorship appliction undesirable?
Though it’s a pretty long-term plan, but as you can see, the answer to this question will decide for now what my focus should be: IELTS or landing a job in Quebec.
Thanks for your read & I appreciate any disucssion/replies!
