CIC helps immigrants to assess their qualification
Applicant Immigrants can assess their qualification and experience with the help of CIC
The immigration system in Canada conducted a survey to find out if the system needed any improvements or it was working fine. In the process the major findings support a change in the processing system for the immigrants to settle down faster and smoother.
Most of the immigrants planning to come to Canada have a required qualification; in fact they are required to have one.
The applicant who wish to arrive here, sometimes stand their applications rejected merely because they fail to identify the category in which they should make their applications. In spite of being well qualified it is quite disheartening for them to experience their forms getting rejected.
To help these immigrants avoid any such discouraging result, Citizenship and Immigration Canada has prepared plans to ensure that immigrants identify their correct category of making application which is only possible if they verify the standards of their education and degree obtained.
First things first
Before getting your qualifications assessed, you need to decide whether you would be choosing a regulated occupation or you will be opting for a non-regulated one. Requirement for Regulated occupations are decided by the Provincial and territorial Government and there is regulatory body which decides the required qualification or experience.
However, if you’re selecting non-regulated occupations the choice and preference largely depends upon he employer. Here the qualification and experience both are largely taken into account.
The procedure of getting your qualification assessed
1. You can consult National Occupational Classification to find out the details of all the requirements you need to meet to get through this category.
2. You can then find out the availability of jobs or demand of your profession in the province you intend to move.
3. You can communicate with the regulatory body in the province to get the further guidelines.
4. In case of non-regulated occupation the requirements will solely depend upon the employer, hence the experience will also be different from one vacancy to another.
CIC has experienced cases wherein the immigrants have arrived in the country and then they had to settle down for a job which was nowhere closer to their qualification. Not only that, in some cases frustrated immigrants have taken up jobs only to meet their survival needs, because they have no means to return back to their own countries.
This step of CIC is proving to be a great help to the Immigrants.
