    Thank you all. I am expecting the next few months to be quite frustrating, Police check forms gone off today, awaiting LMO so once all of these docs are together the application for TWP will be sent. I had best start reading up for the CRNE, :spin: M

    hi silverdragon, rgn1 and jan it seems such a long time since my original post (july 2008). the decision to relocate to alberta was made and i am now in the process of awaiting an lmo, having recieved an offer of employment with red deer regional hospital, alberta. hoping to be over in alberta in january with my husband for a recce and with any luck we should be there properly around april /may time. i did not use an agency in the end it was easier to arrange myself and to keep abreast of the processes so far. i would like to thank you for your advice and help. mandy

    Hi RGN1 Sorry for the delay, had PC problems. I have sent my CV off to a couple of hospitals in Alberta and hoping for the best. I had a reply from and agency 'Canadian Medical Recruitment Agency', they sound okay, but, I would be tied to an agency for 10 months and that, I fear would limit my choices. I understand from your post that it is usual to have a temporary work permit initially. How long does a temp permit last and what is the process to apply for a permanent permit? Regards Mandy

    Hi Silverdragon Thank you for your reply. We are thinking of Alberta. I am an experienced nurse, presently working as an Orthopaedic Nurse Educator for North Glasgow hospitals. But have varied experiences and qualifications in other areas of practice. I know what you say about my qualifications maybe not being recognised in Canada. I can only apply and hope for the best. How long have you been in Canada? How long did the process of getting to Canada and jobs etc take? Did you have a job and visa lined up prior to arriving? Sorry for the many questions, but it is as you know a big step. Thanks again Mandy

    Hi I am looking to relocate to Canada with my husband. I am an RN (Adult) in Scotland at present. Only in the process of fact finding before we make a positive committment to moving. Any tips from other nurses who have made the leap? Would I be best to go through a nursing employment agency or approach the health companies direct? Thanks in advance. Mandy
