Canada

Those expatriates here who are dying to immigrate to Canada often take the ‘experience’ factor for granted. But quite often, it is these small and seemingly insignificant issues that the potential immigrant stumbles on or loses points due to their sheer negligence, notes a top Canadian immigration consultant.

“The criteria for skilled workers appear very simple and for certain factors it is straight forward. However a clarification of some of the factors may be useful,” Brian Telfer (CSIC #M041185), managing director of ISIS International Management Consultants, said.

“The experience factor is the one most people take for granted and award themselves the full 21 points. The rules are quite detailed on how a specific occupation is identified and which code number to use, when claiming experience points.

“Also and more importantly how this experience is evidenced, if it is not done correctly, zero points may be awarded and the application refused,”

He said the education points are based on the qualification, as well as the years of study. “A Master’s degree must have taken 17 years of full time study or equivalent part time to be awarded 25 points. However, a Master’s degree from Bangladesh, Pakistan or the Philippines usually take 16 years, and so it would be awarded only 22 points,” Brian said.

A close blood relative earns 5 points, provided the relative is living in Canada. If the relative is a Canadian citizen but living outside Canada, no points are awarded. The language factor can earn 24 points for applicants fluent in English and French. No points are awarded for fluency in any other language.

Brian noted that many applicants consider themselves fluent in English, yet over 80 per cent fail to score full marks in the English (IELTS) test. “This is more a reflection of the applicants’ ability to pass IELTS, than their proficiency in English.

Immigration officers can award up to 15 points for HRDC (Human Resources and Development, Canada)-approved job offers, from a Canadian employer. However, generally no points are awarded, as many such offers are fraudulent or simply purchased from the employer.

There is a RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) investigation into job offers and HRDC are reviewing approvals they had previously made. Therefore, it won’t be a good idea to fall for advertising of such job offers, Brian noted.

“This should be taken into consideration, when answering the self-assessment on the CIC (Citizenship and Immigration Canada) website. It is, however, safer to check with a CSIC (Canadian Security and Intelligence Community) member or Canadian lawyer before filing an application for Canadian immigration as a skilled worker.
