In case you missed it, Prince Edward Island issued 158 invitations to apply (ITA) under their Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP) last October 17, 2019

Out of this total, 146 applicants were under the Express Entry – Skilled Worker category of the program.

Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP)

You can check the PEI PNP website to learn more about this provincial program. You can also read their PEI Express Entry Application Guide for more information.

If you feel you qualify and is ready to apply, head on to their Expression of Interest system to create your profile and indicate your interest.

Good luck! Hopefully you’ll be one of the lucky few recipients of the PEI PNP invitations to apply to the program.

This article deals with the receipt of your Invitation to Apply (ITA) from NBPNP. It is a part of a series of posts called “Our Canada Immigration Journey“. We will be releasing a number of posts under this series in the next weeks.

We hope that this series will help guide you in your own journey of achieving that dream of living your life in Canada.

At this point of your application, you’re probably still waiting to qualify in the next draw of CIC.

As you might have realized by now, it’s going to be a bit of a wait. Especially if you have relatively low CRS points. That’s primarily the main reason why people look for Canadian provinces that still have open Provincial Nominee Programs.

Believe us when we say that Provincial Nominee Programs work. This was the pathway that worked for us here in Roadtripping Juans.

Now, if you followed our previous article in this series, your Expression of Interest should already be with New Brunswick. Or any province of your choice where you submitted your application.

For New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NBPNP), it will take approximately 2 months for them to provide you with an Invitation to Apply, if you’re successful. This is because NBPNP staff performs an initial review of your application to ensure your job experience and qualifications are a match to their forecast labor requirements and future demand.

The Invitation to Apply, at least in the case of New Brunswick, is in the form of an email similar to the photo below. With recent updates in the program processes, the format might be different from ours.

Your Invitation to Apply ITA

For us, we only had 45 calendar days to complete and submit our application. It will probably be the same for you. In any case, do take note of that as NBPNP is a stickler to timelines. Although there are ways to extend it as needed.

Once you have your ITA from NBPNP, it’s time to make sure you have all the evidences that support the qualifications you claimed leading to your ITA. We hope that you have, at least, the majority of the requirements already with you prior to applying.

We’ll discuss most of the requirements and the process of submitting your documents in our next article.

This article deals with the receipt of your Invitation to Apply (ITA) from NBPNP. It is a part of a series of posts called “Our Canada Immigration Journey“. Check often with us here in Roadtripping Juans for more on this series.

October 14 is Thanksgiving Day in Canada and we took advantage of the long weekend by attending an event called the Festival Of Colors in Crabbe Mountain.

Fall has always been my favorite season. The explosion of colors. The sweet smell of autumn in the air. It is really an experience to behold.

Last weekend, we had an opportunity for a quick family getaway. As such, we took the opportunity to take the 45 minute drive from Fredericton to Crabbe Mountain for their Festival of Colors event.

For those who are not familiar with Crabbe Mountain, it is mostly known for its excellent downhill skiing slopes during the winter. During the summer, the terrain is mostly used for hiking and mountain biking as it has an excellent number of adventure trails. If you’re into hiking, it’s a good place to indulge in your hobby.

Upon arrival, the parking lot was packed. We managed to find parking at the far end of the lot and just walked to the entrance.

Right by the entrance, you’ll see a number of animals in a holding pen. Young visitors enjoyed themselves just petting and feeding the animals.

If you want to feed the animals, you’ll have to spend $1 at a feed dispenser for a handful of animal feed. At first blush, it looks like a lot. However, if you’re looking to feed that camel in the picture above, he’ll do short work of that handful.

A little further in, we found a number of tables where kids were busy decorating their pumpkins. This particular activity is free of charge. Just choose your pumpkin, find any available paint and brush and away you go. It’s a simple yet fun activity with the kids.

The highlight of our visit here was the trek downhill. It’s the Festival of Colors because it’s a chance to enjoy the explosion of color that autumn brings. As such, the best way to do that is by walking your way downhill through lush trees and vegetation.

You’ll find a number of smaller, quiet paths similar to below where you’ll get to see the bright colors of autumn around you.

Along the way, you’ll get to enjoy breathtaking views similar to the above. That picture doesn’t do the beauty of autumn any justice – it’s simply breathtaking and is a sight to behold.

The only complaint that I personally have during our adventure here is the distance that you have to walk downhill. It’s probably a couple of kilometers down a rocky and grassy path.

And how steep it is? Very steep. Halfway down the walk, my legs started shaking with every step. And my knees started acting up. Made me realize I am getting old.

The only redeeming factor of that hike? It was the roughly 20-30 minute ride in a ski lift that will bring you back up the hill.

Overall, it was a tiring day but well worth it. It’s only a one day event so, if you missed it this year, you’ll have to wait for next year to experience it. The wait is worth it so make sure to mark it in your calendar next year.

PS: It’s been 2 days since we went to Crabbe Mountain and my legs are a bit sore from the walk. Sigh.

This article deals with the submission of Expression of Interest to New Brunswick PNP. It is a part of a series of posts called “Our Canada Immigration Journey“. We will be releasing a number of posts under this series in the next weeks.

We hope that this series will help guide you in your own journey of achieving that dream of living your life in Canada.

Our Expression of Interest Submission

The day after the info session that we attended, we quickly submitted our Expression of Interest (EOI) to New Brunswick. As mentioned in our previous article, having attended an info session in Manila, we were feeling pretty confident that our EOI will be successful. Therefore, we did our best to submit our EOI as soon as we could.

As recommended by a New Brunswick representative during the info session, we submitted the following documents:

  • EOI form
  • Proof of registration to the info session
  • IELTS score
  • WES report
  • CV/Resume

Officially, the EOI form and your Proof of registration to the info session should be enough. However, we already did our IELTS and WES so we thought that including those documents could help us. As such, it won’t give the person doing the evaluation a reason to reject our application. We just want to give ourselves a better chance in getting that Provincial Nomination.

The EOI form will ask for the same set of information that CIC usually require from applicants. However, it has an additional question – “Why are you a good candidate for New Brunswick PNP?“. Your answer should be as simple as “With more than XX years as a XXXX, I have the necessary experience, expertise and education to allow me to successfully settle in New Brunswick“.

We emailed the completed form and our supporting documents to entree.express.entry@gnb.ca. For those who attended info sessions like us, you should place in the subject line something like “NBNP Information Session/Manila; MM DD YY“. This will allow NB staff to quickly identify and prioritize your application accordingly.

Next, once they have your application, you should receive an acknowledgment from New Brunswick on your application.

Update: Expression of Interest Submission for NBPNP

As what you might have noticed in the previous section, the process we went through when submitting our EOI is a bit old school. Although via email, that mode of submission is still what we call a paper-based submission.

As of September 2019, New Brunswick moved from their traditional way of accepting applicants to a better web-based version of it.

Expression of Interest

New Way to Apply, Same Requirements

To start your application to NBPNP, you need to go online and visit the province’s own immigration portal – inb.gnb.ca. Assuming you don’t have an online account yet with New Brunswick, you need to click on ‘Register‘ to create your own profile. Otherwise, just enter your username and password to log in.

Registering is easy and can be done quickly. Once done, you’ll get an email similar to below:

Expression of Interest

Once in the portal, you should be able to see pertinent details such as your Candidate ID and status of your submission. If you’re a new applicant, click on the button ‘New‘ within the My EOI Registration section.

Expression of Interest

Afterwards, you’ll be presented with open streams under NBPNP that you can apply for. Take the time to click on each of the available streams. The system will provide you with an overview of the high-level requirements for each.

Expression of Interest

If you’re like us, you will be choosing ‘Express Entry Labour Market Stream’ and then click on Start My EOI.

This will lead you to a series of fields requiring you to input all of your details including your spouse. Take note that you need to input your actual results based on your WES report and IELTS results. Keying in the incorrect information might be construed as misrepresentation. And it might get your application rejected.

Continue with your online application until submission.

Note:

Together with the new portal, New Brunswick also introduced the following requirements as part of EOI submission:

Submission Acknowledgement

Once done, you’ll be brought back to your dashboard. However, this time, you’ll notice you have an existing application at the bottom of the page. It will also show you the current status.

Expression of Interest

Also, you’ll notice at the top right corner is your Notification Center. It will notify you if you have any message or communication from New Brunswick.

For example, since you just submitted your application, you’ll receive a confirmation message from New Brunswick acknowledging your submission. Clicking on the message will show you something similar to below:

Expression of Interest

Final Thoughts

There you have it.

You’ve successfully submitted your Expression of Interest to New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program. Don’t forget to frequently check your email. New Brunswick’s application portal will be informing you via email if you have a new notification. You will then have to log in online to retrieve the actual message.

As always, good luck!

It’s the flu season and I got hit with the flu bug last week.

As such, I would like to apologize to regular readers of Roadtripping Juans for a bit of delay in rolling out new articles. When I say regular readers, that means my wife and 2 kids. They are practically the only ones I know who has enough patience to read through my weekly ramblings.

Anyway, I got the flu bug last week. It seems too early because, well, it is. Flu season usually sets in during late fall or early winter season.

I guess, sometimes, you can also be hit by the bug as soon as school season starts. In North America, that means September. Your child can pick up the virus from school. Before you know it, it has already spread through the household.

Luckily, in Canada, most provinces have health programs (i.e. Medicard) that cover the cost of flu shots. All you need to do is make an appointment with your family doctor, present your provincial health card and you’ll get your flu shot. Your doctor will charge the cost of the vaccine to your province.

In the Philippines, we don’t have such programs. You need to either have your own private medical insurance or be covered by your company’s own health benefits. Either way, you need to ensure that regular flu vaccines are covered for you and your family.

Personally, this was one of the major selling points when we were deciding to move the family from the Philippines to Canada. Free public health services and coverage of Canadian provinces are top-notch.

Going to New Brunswick’s Kings Landing http://www.roadtrippingjuans.com/going-to-nbs-kings-landing/ Sat, 28 Sep 2019 03:22:21 +0000 http://www.roadtrippingjuans.com/?p=1769 We’ve always wanted to go to Kings Landing and do a tour around the place....

The post Going to New Brunswick’s Kings Landing appeared first on Roadtripping Juans.

We’ve always wanted to go to Kings Landing and do a tour around the place. However, the price of admission has always been a hurdle.

Luckily, we came across an end of season promotion. The promo calls for a visit to any New Brunswick Public Library where you can get your free pass. You will need to present your library card in order to get the freebie.

As such, we went to the library at downtown Fredericton to claim our tickets – 2 adults and 2 kids. That’s around $70.00 in value. Great!

Anyway, we cleared our calendars last Saturday and decided to use the free tickets.

New Brunswick’s Kings Landing is set up to be a living history museum with original buildings from the period 1820-1920. It is set up to depict life in New Brunswick during a period when early Anglo-American settlers live together will Scottish, Irish and English immigrants.

The intention was for Kings Landing to represent rural New Brunswick during the 19th and 20th century. It was never intended to replicate an actual village.

Kings Landing
Not about Game of Thrones, folks…

Kings Landing is located in Lower Prince William, New Brunswick. It’s around 30 kilometers from downtown Fredericton.

After a short 25 minute drive on a leisurely Saturday afternoon, you won’t have any problem finding a spot to park in. They have space big enough to accommodate everyone – even during peak season.

Getting off the car and walking to the front desk, you’ll walk by two markers shown below. Click on the pictures in the gallery below for a closer look.

Kings Landing Visitors Area

Kings Landing
Kings Landing Lobby

Once inside the lobby, you’ll be met by friendly staff standing behind the counter. They’ll accept payment for entry tickets and will issue you a sticker to indicate that you’re a paid guest.

Kings Landing
Exhibit Hall near the Reception area

At the left side of the counter you’ll find a small exhibit that display artworks depicting period life and also a collection of artifacts and restoration items. It’s well worth a quick walk around the exhibit room. It’s interesting!

Inside the lobby, you’ll find various educational displays similar to below. Click on the pictures in the gallery below for a closer look.

Inside Kings Landing, you can explore the village…

Once you’ve paid and is through the entrance doors, you’ll be met by the view below.

Kings Landing
View from near the entrance of Kings Landing

It’s tempting to assume that that initial view is everything there is to see in Kings Landing. However, the real treat can be found further downhill. You will have to wait for a horse drawn carriage to transport you to the village.

Kings Landing
Your transport to the village downhill…

The carriage will drop you off near the edge of the village. From there, you’ll get a chance explore the entire village and look around the place.

Kings Landing
The town church

Click on the pictures in the gallery below for a closer look.

Or, you can visit the workshops…

There are various workshops where you can drop in and watch the residents at work. When we arrived, a blacksmith and a carpenter were busy working at their respective shops. And when I say ‘working’, they were really hard at work. I mean, the blacksmith’s really working and showing us how the craft worked during the 1800s. He even showed us how a small coat hanger was made back then. Cool!

Kings Landing
The town blacksmith
Kings Landing
The town carpenter

Or, you can drop by and visit one of the houses.

A visit to Kings Landing is not complete if you don’t drop by the houses scattered around the village.

At each house, you’ll see housekeepers in different degrees of preoccupation. When you walk in, the lady of the house might be busy with the dishwashing. In another, another might be busy with some needlework.

This is really the definition of a ‘living history museum’.

In one house we visited, the housekeeper just finished preparing spaghetti squash. We were offered a small plate to try and it was delicious. Tastes different – but still delicious. First time for me to try that dish!

There’s a lot of houses that you can visit! Don’t hesitate to explore, drop in, and have a chat with the residents.

Kings Landing
Their fireplace…

Click on the pictures in the gallery below for a closer look.

A treat from start to end.

At the end of the day, near closing time, we started doing a beeline to the nearby clearing that serves as a waiting area for the horse carriage back to the Visitors Area.

While waiting, you’ll get to watch – and even participate if you want – to a song and dance performance with the residents of Kings Landing. Watch the video below:

Below is a picture of the nice staff of Kings Landing:

Kings Landing

Overall, it was a fun and educational day – especially for the kids. Well worth the 25 minute drive from Fredericton, for sure!

According to their page, the free passes promotion is only for the whole month of September. As such, you still have time tomorrow to get your free passes!

In case you miss it this year, I do believe this promotion is an annual thing at Kings Landing – especially right before they gear up for their Fall season of activities. So, mark it on your calendar so you won’t forget next year!

In case you missed it, British Columbia issued 481 invitations to apply (ITA) under their Provincial Nominee Program (BCPNP) last September 17, 2019.

Out of this total, 97 applicants were under the Express Entry – Skilled Worker category of the program.

Visit their website to read more about the BC’s Provincial Nominee Program.

Good luck! Hopefully you’ll be one of the lucky few recipients of the BCPNP invitations to apply to the program.

As housewives, one of the challenges that we will encounter is around thinking of what to cook for our family. And we all have our own menu planning scheme that we employ.

When we get home from work, we still have to deal with various household chores. Keeping the place tidy, preparing the laundry and looking after the kids and their school activities. It’s already a full time job.

But that doesn’t stop there… we still have to prepare dinner for the family. But, what to cook?

In the Philippines, when you don’t have time to prepare food, there are always those carinderias down at the corner or take-out kiosks on your way home. Here there are no turo-turo, binalot or whatever. Fastfood is not that accessible and definitely NOT that “fast”. Also, it can get real expensive, real fast – if you do it regularly.

Although there are those ready-to-cook frozen food available and ready to pop in the microwave, of course you don’t want to feed your family with processed and preserved food all the time.

So, you cook. At first, it’s easy to think of something. Whatever you’re craving for or whatever food is you kid’s favorite. That will be on the menu. But as time goes on, the kids will tire off the same food on the table. Eating again what they had few days ago.

To avoid this, I came up with a menu scheme.

Color Coding in Menu Planning

You know you grew up in the Philippines when your kitchen menu is based on how traffic is managed in Manila.

As the name implies, the menu is based on the appearance or dominant color of the food.

Orange – These dishes are mostly tomato-based. It can be anything with tomato sauce or atchuete. From menudo, afritada, caldereta, giniling and to any orange food you can think of.

Brown – dishes that are usually soya sauce-based, be it a dash or spoonfuls, falls under this category. You can include typical Filipino dishes – adobo, beef steak, humba, asado, etc.

Clear – This group includes nilaga, sinigang, tinola with a combination of different vegetables or any add-on that is avalable in the kitchen.

Green – These are dishes where the main ingredients are vegetables. Sauteed beans or spinach, brocolli with oyster sauce, chop suey, and pinakbet are some of the dishes that fall under this group.

Fried – Most kids’ favorite. Fried chicken. Who can ever miss that? You can also include fried fish fillet, pork chop or tonkatsu. Add in a fried egg or scrambled egg in there as well..

You can vary the meat for each dish as well. Alternate between pork, chicken, beef and fish. Just to diversify it a bit.

If I’m too busy and tired, some canned goods like spam, sardines or corned beef will do. Ocassionally, I will cook bacon, ham, sausage or hotdog as the last resort.

It is best to prepare the menu ahead of time to avoid last-minute preparation. But, of course, if my kids are craving for a specific dish, one that is not planned, I am flexible as long as they will be able to eat healthy and nutritious food.

Share with us your insights and any other ideas on menu planning.

In case you missed it, Manitoba issued 347 invitations to apply to their Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) last September 12, 2019.

Well, officially, they call it as ‘Letter of Advice to Apply‘. However, it is the same as getting an invitation to apply (ITA). They’re essentially telling those recipients to formally apply to them since their declared credentials qualify them to the program.

Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP)

Currently, Manitoba is issuing these invitations to those who fit one of 3 criteria under their MPNP:

  • Skilled Workers in Manitoba – you should already be living and working in Manitoba;
  • International Education Stream – you should be a foreign citizen graduating from an institution in Manitoba; needless to say, you should already be in Manitoba;
  • Skilled Workers Overseas – these are individuals living and working outside of Canada who wants to migrate to Manitoba;

In addition, all of the above have a requirement that your job experience should be in their In-Demand Occupation list. You can check out their website for a list of occupations that are in demand in Manitoba. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to see the list.

Found your occupation? You think you’ll qualify via MPNP?

If yes, you should go ahead and submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the province.

You start this by going to their Expression of Interest Submission page. In this page you’ll find details around the MPNP process, Manitoba’s scoring and ranking system, and instructions on how to apply. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on ‘Apply Now‘ to start your application.

Good luck! Hopefully you’ll be one of the lucky few recipients of the MPNP invitations to apply to the program.

You should read our article about the different Canadian immigration programs. The article touches on the Provincial Nominee Program. And it also details how important it is to your Express Entry profile and immigration application.
