    Hi Cocoy. how's your work permit? any news?

    as for me ALL of my papers are now with CARNA and i'm just waiting for my eligibility status. GH sent me forms (police form, embassy form, etc.) and was told to start with them.

    if i get my eligibility status i'll have to turn up a gear all the things i need to "dispose of" like my TV, PC, etc. and will start inquiring on the best place to rent a flat. but i think GH will be providing me a "physical acccomodation" and not just money to rent for a month or so then i will be ;eft to find a place on my own....

    If i were you i wont do anything ...wait until you have your medical exam.

    It can be a long frustrating wait. Trust me ..look at the other post where you said you are buying new mobiles to use in Alberta. I told you before i have been waiting since 10th of June for my permit. Its already 3 months. Nothing has happened.

    Just imagine if i resigned in June and start selling my things ..then i wont have any money and nothing in the house. I will wait until i see the permit with my eyes then i know i am leaving.

    Bye

    Sounds like you already work in Alberta! I know nurses who are leaving positions to work "casual" for the same reasons. They all want m-f day shifts...

    so, would you advice me or agree with me if i say i would resign even before i start applying for that work permit or atleast wait till i get my eligibility status?

    hi Gino

    My advice is NO at the moment. Think well cos its not easy just doing bank shifts for months. No annual leave and no sickness. If you are financially OK my answer would still be NO. Save your money for the hard times in Alberta.

    Bye

    Hi Gino

    Even though I got my TWP i have not resigned yet cos i am supposed to start on 5th January 09 at Foothills Medical Hospital. I am planning to leave the UK by 31st Dec +/- a few days. My notice period is 8 weeks so I will submit my resignation by beginning of November.

    I am feeling quite nervous to leave everything behind. I have put my house on sale here in London but the price is not good so i intend to rent it to cover my mortgage costs.

    I understand you are heading to Edmonton so we can still chat online. How's your resignation gone? Still planning it ot have you submitted it?

    Good luck anyway.
