What do you suggest to start the process??

You can likely apply under our express entry process as a skilled worker. You don't need a job offer first but you application is stronger if you have one.

Here is a link to the information what you will need:

And here is a link to an online assessment took that will give you a good idea as to whether you will be successful or not:

after applying with express entry. How long will it take to know whether my application is successful or not? And also can you tell if there would be any one who can help me in this whole process.

It takes 6 months.

You can retain an immigration lawyer to assist you. What province do you want to move to?

Ask Your Own Canada Law Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I am not sure of that. I have no idea of the provinces over there so

That's a pretty big decision.

It would be moving to the US and saying you just want to move to the US.

So you should do some reading and figure out what you think would work best for you.

Then you can find a lawyer in that province. In most provinces there is a lawyer referral service you can use. So google that when you are ready.
