Level of Education

In order for your Canadian credential to qualify:

  • You must have been physically present in Canada and have been enrolled in full-time study for at least eight months.

  • You must not have studied French or English (as language classes, not studies in French or English) for more than 50% of the program of study.

  • You must not have received a scholarship or fellowship that requires you to come back home (your country) at the end of your studies.

  • You must not have studied in a program in which distance learning amounted to more than 50% of the program of study.

Language abilities

You need language test results (less than 2 years old) to prove your proficiency in French or English.

The work experience must be:

  • acquired in an occupation under NOC TEER 0, 1, 2 or 3

With a certificate of qualification, you can work in some skilled trades in Canada. But these certificates can only be issued by a competent provincial, territorial, or federal authority. You can learn more about skilled trades and certificates of qualification here.
