If you intend on submitting your application without the support of a representative, there are a couple of factors you should keep in mind.
As with most applications you will need to demonstrate your proficiency in either English or French. You will need this to demonstrate to an officer that you will be able to communicate effectively in your work. This too will help you adjust better to life in Canada and assist you in adapting to Canadian culture.
You will need to provide the results of an eligible language test. The tests that are acceptable are:
- - CELPIP (Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program) General Test
- - IELTS (International English Language Testing System) General Test
- - TEF (Test d'Évaluation de Français)
Depending on the test you take, the scoring rubric is different. For example, the minimum score for the CELPIP exam is 2H for listening while the minimum score, in the same category, for the IELTS test is 4.5.
Your employer will need to submit an employment reference letter so that you may submit this with your application. Make certain that the reference letter meets the standards and definitions in order to be considered acceptable. It should be signed, date and on company letterhead. Further, it should touch on the following matters:
- General Holidays and General Holiday Pay
- Hours of Work, Rest Periods and Days of Rest
- Maternity and Parental Leave
- Minimum Wage
- Overtime Hours and Overtime Pay
- Payment of Earnings
- Reservists Leave
- Termination of Employment and Termination Pay
- Vacations and Vacation Pay
