Serve in Discrimination free environment in Canada
In Canada, Federal and provincial labor laws protect your rights as a worker. The Act protects most workers in Canada. It ensures that no one may discriminate against you because of your age, gender, religion, race or sexual orientation. Any employer who discriminates against you for these reasons is breaking the law.
You as a worker too have responsibilities under the law too. You have to learn how the laws can keep you safe and healthy at work. If you want others to treat you fairly at work, you need to learn what the laws say.
If you apply for a job or an educational program, the employer or school may ask you for proof of your level of education or training. The employer or school will also want to know how your training compares to diplomas or certificates given in Canada.
You may need to get a credential assessment to show them. Credential assessment means getting your educational credentials compared to their Canadian equivalents. When you get your educational documents Employment assessed, you will get a written report or letter that describes each of your certificates, diplomas or degrees. This letter should tell you what the Canadian equivalents are for your marks and documents.
If you want to work in a profession or trade and use the professional title (such as an Engineer or a Hairdresser) you must have a license or certificate. To get this license, you need to register with the association that regulates your occupation. Like some schools, these groups have their own assessment process.
Credential assessment costs money. Talk to the employer, school or regulatory association of your occupation about what kind of evaluation they need before you pay for an assessment.
An evaluation prepared for an employer may not be the same as one that is prepared for an educational program.
When you come to Canada, look at different evaluation services and their reports before you use their service. You may need assessments for employment, immigration, higher education, licensing and apprenticeship training. Try to get one report that is useful for many purposes, instead of buying a different one for each of these purposes.
