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)

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
