Hi All,
Ive recently posted about moving the USA but that has came up with nothing, So my next option is to move to Canada.

Im 19 but will be 20 when i leave england to move to canada, Now im not very sure on Visa's. Im planning on getting a Work Visa for the first year and then Getting another Work Visa which is for people that have worked in canada before. But to get Permanent Residence you have to stay there for 3 years if im correct?

Anyway my main question is in regards to criminal records. I do have one from 5 years ago now. it was a youth thing.. Would that hinder my chances of getting into the Canada?

Also after ive been in canada for a few years i was going to see if i could immigrate to the USA from canada. Would that be easier than UK>USA ?
