I'm moving to Canada from the US. Please tell me how to apply for a work Visa and other details I might need.

I would appreciate any details for obtaining a work visa for working in Canada as a US citizen. Website references would be awesome, as would instructions or testimonials from people who have done it or know how to do it. Also, any job, apartment, cell phone, insurance websites particular to the Vancouver/Langley British Colombia area would be very useful. Basically, any information for what it will take to live in Langley as far as cost of living and resources for finding those things. Thanks in advance.

It is not easy getting a work visa. I looked into moving and working in the US and the best options were having skill/education that would get you a job that could not be filled by a citizen. The other options would be marrying a citizen or possibly going to school and get a student visa. Langley is about a 45 minute... More
