Good evening house, can anyone tell me if one can apply as a single mother via EE please

Nothing stops you from applying, you can go ahead as long as you have done IELTS and passed sufficiently and you have your qualifications evaluated.

They talk about needing certification and licencing in the regulated field, licenced here or have to be licenced in Canada?
i dont have the required number of years to get licenced here but i have over 1 year experience required in my prefered NOC as specified by CIC.
i need clarification, i am NOC 2131.

If you are yet to apply, then don't bother. The spaces are filled already
Re: Canadian Federal Skilled Worker Program-timelines Here by abyurla(f): 1:50pm On Jul 03, 2015
I don't have certification or license there either. I've been told that criteria applies to applicants based in Canada. If you have the minimum score 60, go ahead and attempt to submit your application, I'm hoping that it's still open.

Re: Canadian Federal Skilled Worker Program-timelines Here by abyurla(f): 1:53pm On Jul 03, 2015
@meta4 No harm in trying. I will say go for it, unless the system doesn't allow you to submit the application. I saw this post on Canadavisa forum after my initial post. Guys go on and apply, you never know.
Refer to this if you run into issues

Hello house, i'm a newbie on this thread although i've read through most of the posts to learn the ropes.
Please can someone help do a list of steps to take to promise land on the EE?
I mean from application stage to when you do medicals and eventually qualify and travel.

I want to apply for express entry with my Wife.
We have two kids between us (Aged 4 and 2).
I have done a self assessment and my work experience and age give me good points as well as my spouse.

However,i still need to do ECA and i don't know what stage this will become necessary.
I'm also aware of the need to have a valid job offer (I don't know if it's compulsory).
Re: Canadian Federal Skilled Worker Program-timelines Here by Julietdanny: 4:03pm On Jul 03, 2015
Thanks dear, but where do I address my credentials to for assessment please, I am a bit confused with how to go about this whole thing.
Re: Canadian Federal Skilled Worker Program-timelines Here by nis70: 7:15pm On Jul 03, 2015
JesusDWay:


I will advise you use the link below to first do a pre-assessment of yourself, click on each of the selection factors and see your grading. In most cases, a one year work experience may not earn you sufficient qualifying points except when age is on your side. Besides, i think i've once read it somewhere that a National Service is not counted as work experience(kindly research it yourself as i'm not too sure). In addition, your work details must be classified under an NOC Skill Level 0 OR Skill Type A or B. Also, how do you plan proving you earned sufficiently enough within that one year to have the required proof of funds? You can go ahead and apply but these are salient issues you'll need to find how to address. Use the second link to find out the NOC Type your work experience falls under

http://www5.hrsdc.gc.ca/noc/english/noc/2011/welcome.aspx


@ jesusDWay that was really an eye opener. I might jst hv to hold on a bit. I'm in my late 20's nd my Specialization is also listed on the NOC. Thanks a bunch.

On your travel update,you don't need to inform them.
On the Surname issue,from my conclusion,it seems your former surname and new surname are all contained on the generic form...
If this is so,no issues regarding it....these are not the type of issues that results in denial of application.
I wouldn't mind if you explain better your usage of your new and old surname in your application.
I want to be sure you have included a document that showed the change of name from old to new....
Does the documents you used contained the old or new surname?
Which of it was used on your birth certificate?
For myself,my surname is a shortened form of my surname...but the shortened form of my surname reflected on all my official documents and my birth certificate despite filling parents's name and siblings with my original surname....and there was no issue......so are you in the same scenario?....if yes,you are cool.If no,explain better.
Not that the issue is a serious one,just want to be sure of how you used the names in your application so that we can be sure of raising a CSE or not.
Don't also forget that,most applicants will be asked to update some forms especially during medicals.
Cheers.






Thanks for your kind reply.U and ur crew are doing a great job here.

Let's assume A is the old surname and B is the new.And they are totally different not a shortened form.

All my documents and application is in A.The only place B appeared is in generic form where they asked a name one has used before.I had to cancel it at last minute because I have never used B for anything before but the Barcode page didn't change and I had to submit it like that because I would have missed the deadline.
Meanwhile,my birth certificate reads A for me and my parents but in the application their name has B.
I didn't include any name change document because technically am not known or have ever used it.

I would estimate 100k per applicant. So for the two of you, it is 200' naira. This includes paying to send your transcripts for evaluation, paying for the evaluation and writing IELTS test only once.
@vivichocs, personally: ielts 39k, wes; 60k, peripherals(husling for schl to send my credentials twice. the twice means initial documents review [/b]and the other for [b]final documents evaluation): 20k. i would estimate the range of 110k to 120k. i wrote my ielts last weekend at Ibadan, and my ECA is now in Evaluation stage.
all the best.
Now, learn from my experience>
1. speed post is actually fas[/b]t, but i paid 10k for a package that arrived 4-5 days after.... on the second run, I used registered nipost mail for 500 bucks which arrived 8 days later(meanwhile, i was told it may take 14 working days at the post office.) if you wanna save some bucks, our own [b]registered Nipost mail is economical if you have time on your side.
2.nipost may mess up at times. the tracking number on my package was changed without notifying me, it was not until i called the Nipost customer care number that i found on their website, that the new tracking number was given to me after one or two verifications.

despite the mix up at nipost, i wished i had used them instead of the speed post i earlier used.

3. this is not an experience, it is still happening, it is an 'PRESPERINCE' grin, i live in osun state, with 6 months salaries unpaid cry

Hello @damkollins:
Please I have an ECA already. But I just obtained a masters degree from University of Portharcourt and i want to get another ECA that will be evaluated on the Masters degree I just got. I used ICAS to get the ECA i have now but their processing time takes more than 20 weeks (about 6 months). I dont want to continue with ICAS for this reason. my questions are:
1. I heard WES doesn't evalute certificates from university of portharcourt. is this true? WES has the fastest processing time
2. Since i already have an ECA from ICAS, will sending my just obtained Masters degree certificate alongside one original copy of the ECA report i got from ICAS to WES or CES be enough or will i need to send every certificate and transcript I sent to ICAS ?

[b]1.I was sure till the end of last year that University of Portharcourt certificates is not been evaluated by WES...its always displayed in red whenever you choose Nigeria as a country.Funny enough even though I cant seems to remember,I read someone who said WES evaluated the certificate for him/her....in all fairness,I cant confirm this to you.
What I have noticed on their website unlike before is that its no more displayed on their website that they are not doing evaluation for them.I will advice you to send an email to them (contactca@wes.org) before you make an informed decision.
2.I want to believe CES is out of your oprions because as of few minutes ago,its been displayed that they do not do evaluation for Uniport.The options you have is that of ICAS or WES...but WES is subject to confirmation when you send mail to them...while we all know that ICAS will take time.
I have a friend who used ICAS to evaluate his Msc certificate,He got the evaluated copy exactly one year from the day he initiated it cheesy

Yes it is completely normal. It's just a system glitch that occurs when a CIC officer views your profile.

Thank you so much.. We're just two, my spouse and I. how much do we need each?


Also, how do i get a list of schools whose certificates are evaluable by WES? Can't seem to find that on their website.
Can one send professional certificates like SAP, BOSIET, HSE etc alongside certificate for verification? will that add additional marks?
Then, wch does WES evaluate, Certificate or Transcript? And must the certificate/Transcript be sent directly by my school to them?

I really appreciate y'all.. Please don't get bored by my questions. . Still a newbie.

in Nigeria the only school exempted is Uniport. when you are registering on the website you would see that. You are expected to have ur WES ref number on your package, and you and ur husband would have personal ref number. logically, you should send the certs on different envelops, I mean separately. costly but safer.
