This file must contain:
a curriculum vitæ presenting your skills and accomplishments
original or certified copies of:
– your diplomas, course transcripts, proof of studies and other educational certificates
– your certificates of continuing education, training internship or upgrading
– a description of the duration of the courses and internships you have completed
– permits to practise your profession or trade and certificates of occupational qualification
– proof of employment and work experience, job descriptions and letters of recommendation from previous employers .
Prepare a curriculum vitæ (CV); a Canada CV style.
If you already have a CV, you will probably need to adapt it so that it can be understood by individuals who generally are not familiar with the institutions or companies where you acquired your skills.

Create your network of contacts
Networking is one of the most effective methods for finding a job. You can start creating your network of contacts even before your departure by talking about your plans to settle in Canada with friends or acquaintances you already have in Canada.
Acquire or perfect your knowledge of English or French.
Before you can be admitted to a general, vocational or technical study program, the school board or college must ensure that the languages studies you completed outside Canada fulfil the minimum admission requirements of the program in question.

The Exploratory travel guide :
If you apply to immigrate as an entrepreneur, it is recommended that you make an exploratory trip to Canada. Although it is not compulsory, an exploratory trip will enable you, depending on the program component selected, to take charge of your business project and further develop the main components of your business plan. You will then be better equipped to defend your project during the selection interview. In fact, your project’s credibility and feasibility are factors that will influence your selection as an entrepreneur. We organize Canadian travel and tour packages , contact us!
