I have been looking into how to migrate to Canada as a family
- Me: 47 years - developer with 22 years of experience (in my country)
- Wife: 38 years - graduates by Nov-2023 in Business Management
- Kid: 8 years (school)
Other details about me:
- I have presented the IELTS General with a overall score 7.0
- I have never worked or lived in Canada
- I have selected the range of $16,570 - $20,222 for 3 family members
Yesterday I followed the official wizard/form that it helps me to determine if I can use Express Entry with the above details and it told me that I was not able to use it (even when selecting that I had a job offer). The wizard I used is this one: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/come-canada-tool-immigration-express-entry.html
Someone has told us that a way to migrate is that my wife studies a postgraduate in Canada and that meanwhile I can work there, but what are the general steps to achieve that besides choosing a university program, getting the money and submitting the papers to the college?
For example does she need to get the visa first and then I submit my application to go there or is this an application that the both of us have to do together in single process?
Is that the better option for us? Is the above wizard reliable for this case?
We area planning on contacting an immigration agent for this case but I still want to understand our options.
