I wouldn't say it's a major requirement but it sure is a good way to get in. It is mostly sales here so and the certification give you rights to talk about mutual funds which is a big part of the everyday sales here. There are tons of certifications you can look at as it solely depends on what area of banking you want to go into.
If you're aiming for something in Toronto Head offices, it will be a different ball game. I just did mine to get into the system. As soon as I settle well into the job, I'll start making career change moves. Everybody in my branch except the tellers have at least one sales certification. It's kind of regulated here so you need certifications for financial planning to be a financial planner etc.
For the question about entry, I don't really get what you mean by "...where entry seem much easier". I submitted my application in 2014 via the FSWP stream and I finally got my visa in 2018 . The idea then was that you could land anywhere. Has that now changed?
For the website, it is csi.ca. Take your time to read through the site as there are different career paths for the exams.

Pls how much is the course and which did you do or would you advise one to do btw CSC and IFC

The exam cost me a little over $500 because I added study packs to it for test simulations. If you go with the hard copy book, it is even more expensive. It's cheaper if you do just soft copy but i will advise anyone who wants to do it to add study pack.
CSC is IFC and more. In other words, it is more advanced...equities, derivatives etc.
If you just want to get in and move later, it might not be worth it stressing for the CSC. Most people I've met started with IFC though.

Another neighbour here oo. Destination Milton too�. Landing in March. @Philip3 How are you enjoying Milton? I don't know what to expect because i have no friend/family there.

The town is feeding off people moving away from Toronoto due to high house prices which in turn has raised rent. Its closest to Mississauga and Oakville.

It has a feeling of being a small town with a bigger town being superimposed over it.

I have been here not up to a year but the number of new houses and apartment buildings opening up is amazing.

In terms of jobs i would score it low. A few manufacturing companies and the type of jobs that go with that.

Lots of parks close to where I stay for the kids anyway.

Has a GO station with buses and train that goes into Toronto and back.

However its internal bus system is the wackest I have seen. I just cant explain it. Uber suffered me.

Its also about 40mins to an hr drive to the Kitcherner axis.

As for attractions I am not the outgoing type so dont know if there is any to be honest.

Go for after Degree Nursing ... It's two years (6 semester) but it full time and intensive (Check out university of Alberta)

All in all, Nursing is a lucrative field in Canny. There are prerequisites but with your educational background most likely it would be waived.

Good info, thanks...

I have my degree in Anatomy too, would definitely consider this option, I believe SOPA can help in this regards for fund right?

Google will give you additional info, some school offer part time.

Good day everyone. Please I'll like opinion on this. I just got married to my husband here in Nigeria. My husband is Canadian and I am Nigerian. He is planning to sponsor me to Canada as his wife (spousal sponsorship). I just want to know if anyone had a successful application and how long exactly before cic gave them visa? Did anyone had to wait for a year? And also I would like to know what documents were required exactly. I have done change of name and looking forward to getting a new international passport. 
And also I've been denied visiting him before we got married I will therefore like to know if I can apply for visit while the application for spousal sponsorship is ongoing?

If I tell you say sabi which one hard pass, na lie. I honestly don't think it can get more difficult that CSI's IFC. People in the bank fail it but it's passable with adequate practice. Remember I said I did nothing else but study,eat and sleep for about 7weeks. If you wanna combine it with work, it might take you longer to prepare. It is also advisable that you pick a date for the exam before you're done studying but please be sure you'll be done studying by the date. The reason for this is because the dates are usually fully booked in advance.

a friend of mine got married to a Nigerian - Canadian, he applied for spousal sponsorship months ago. Last I heard, his file has been moved to Accra, though he resides in Japan. I could find out from him what docs he sent and the latest update.

I think your marriage gives you a better shot for a visiting visa now, and the two applications can run concurrently.
