If you come to Canada unprepared and start applying for jobs the minute you land, you will likely be told by a potential employer that, while your skills are impressive, you unfortunately have “no Canadian experience.”
In order to prove the merit of your international skills or educational credentials to potential Canadian employers, you may want to or have to go through a credential evaluation, a process to measure your level of education to the Canadian system. You may also have to get your credentials evaluated if you plan on going back to school to get further training.
After immigrants land in Canada, they are often surprised by how many barriers they face in getting hired. That surprise comes in part because they were approved to come to Canada based on their education and professional experience — and in industries that are said to be in need of more workers.
