Hi all I need some assistance. I am a married man with a wife and 2 kids. I am 34 yrs old and my wife is 36 years old. My son is 3 and a half and my daughter is newly born. I have a british passport as well as lebanese and my wife has a lebanese passport. My kids have both nationalities. I current have 10 yrs management and hotel experience and my wife has worked in school. We are currently living in Lebanon.

I have a marketing degree from the UK and a MBA from Lebanon. My wife also has a bachelor in french and an mba from lebanon.

Lebanon is currently is a deep political and banking crises with people unable to withdraw money from their own accounts. Now I know to migrate to Canada as a family you need atleast 19000 usd to immigrate. However as of 2 years i have withdrawn all my money and am not willing to put it in the bank for fear of being unable to withdraw anything or losing it if the banking system fails. I do have 2 houses registered in my name ( will that help) which i rent.

So now that my situation is a bit clearer please advise me what is the best option and which province in canada is best suited to my situation

You will have to research whether you qualify for PR plans. You will need to prove that you hav3 funds in the bank. Perhaps you can open a foreign bank account in country. Have you determined your CRS score? CRS scores above around 470 are being accepted. It really comes down to what you qualify for not what province is best for your family. You are getting ahead of yourself.

If the situation is so dire, why not immigrate to the UK since you have British citizenship?
As mentioned you're jumping the gun in what's really entailed in immigrating if that's the route you want to take

Yes I could move to the uk however I am leaving it as a last resort when all options are not available. Also I do believe throught my research, living in the UK and throught conversations with friends that canada is better to raise a family
Similar issues in both countries. The UK has more hotels. Living on one income is incredibly hard in many Canadian cities unless you have one very good income and the cost of raising young kids is especially high because of high childcare costs. Once your children can stay at home alone at least you don’t have to worry about daycare, before and/or after school care, summer camps, maternity leave when you only earn a fraction of your income, etc. Have you actually researched li in ing costs, how easy it will be to get a job in hotel management, what salary can you expect, etc. Many of the hotel jobs will be in areas where the costs of living is high. Major cities and resort areas like Whistler. Have you visited Canada? Deciding to immigrate somewhere needs to rely on more than a friends opinion. Would research the programs to see if it will be feasible to immigrate. You will need a bank account if you want to apply.
