6 posts in this topic

I fish the sioux narrows kenora area 3-4 times a year. I live in chicago now, and am seriously thinking of getting a working visa. I have a painting business in chicago, interior exterior. it would not be that hard. I hope, to do the same there. I guess if you are a skilled worker it makes it somewhat easier. I also have a brother in law, that has a cabin on the lake. in that area, so I could live there, what are my options is this feasible.

I would say that getting a work visa would almost be impossible for you, unless you bought a painting business or something similar up here.

I own 2 resorts and employ 15 fulltime and 6 parttime employees and I still have a hard time each spring getting my work permit/visa.

They offer all the open jobs to Canadian willing to the work. If there are no Canadians that can fill the position, then you may have a chance. There is a skilled worker clause in there as well, if your trade is a highly skilled trade then are exceptions. You can try, but I really doubt you will have any luck. Best of luck though, you would be best to go the Canadian gov HSOforum and contact them and get the info first hand.

It is possible to do, very very timely and hard, I researched it for a while not worth it for me to attempt.

Robert, I would stop by the Human Resources office here in Kenora. It's located in Market Square, and they would be able to direct you, I would think. The ladies there have been great. (My wife is American, so they've helped me get through the transition stages)

    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.   
    • I put a few miles on this weekend as well. Out on the lake and back a few times. But, I was about a mile out!
