Hi, I have an enquiry related with WES credential result. My result is mentioned below:
01. Bachelor of commerce:
Canadian equivalency : 3 years
bachelor degree
02. Master of commerce :

Canadian Equivalency: 4 years bachelor degree


03. Master of business administration:
Canadian equivalency: 4 years bachelor degree.


In the "educational terms used in WES evaluations" states that for a Master's Degree, a post-baccalaureate degree in a specified field, awarded on the basis of completion of coursework (usually 1-3 years of study) and often a written thesis or project. Based on this, in my case, I have done Master of Business Administration (MBA - 2.5 years) and done a project under this course which is equivalent to 2 courses/course code: MS100 project work as per the Indira Gandhi National Open University mark list. So, kindly advice am I eligible for a masters degree and how can I approach wes for the same.

Hi there,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

You may find helpful information in the Settlement.Org article, How can I find a family doctor?
Here is an excerpt:
Here are a few ways you can look for a family doctor:
  • Ask a friend or family member if their doctor is accepting new patients.
  • Register with Health Care Connect. This program refers you to a local doctor or nurse practitioner who is accepting new patients. You need to have OHIP to use this service and must not be currently registered with an Ontario family health care provider. It is run by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. You can register with this program by filling out an online form or by calling 1-800-445-1822 (TTY 1-866-797-0007).
  • Use the Doctor Search found on the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario website. This search is helpful for finding doctors that speak your language or have a specialization you may need.




There are more options listed in the article. In case you don't have a health (OHIP) card, you might be eligible for services at a Community Health Centre (CHC). Some doctors accept patients who have private health insurance or who pay for services. Many settlement and community agencies can help you find health care. To find help in your area, use our Services Near Me tool.

You may also want to dial 211 on a phone to speak to an Information and Referral Specialist to see if they can refer you to the nearest community health clinic or a low-cost walk in clinic.

211 is a free service that is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

We hope this information is helpful.

Sincerely,
Your Settlement.Org Team

Hi There .

We are in the process of renewing the PR card for our underage children's and wanted to know if in the question # 20 regarding to the work and educational history inside and outside of Canada in the past five years. do we have to include the time they have been going to school since they arrive in Canada or not.

Other question is will they need to submit fingerprints? we came here in January 2016. My understanding is not , but I would like to make sure.in order to avoid delays .
and third., given the fact that their PR cards are about to expire and we are planning to travel in summer and we meet as well the requirements for citizenship but knowing that citizenship application process is taking longer tan usual . Can we apply for both at the same time ?

Thank You.

Hi there,
Thank you for reaching out! We will be happy to answer your question.
In terms of education history, you will need to include all the time they have gone to school, either within or outside Canada, in the past five years. If they have been permanent residents for less than five years, you only need to include the time since they became permanent residents. More detailed instructions about the individual questions can be found online.
Your children most likely do not need to give their fingerprints for their PR card renewal. In general, PR card applications do not require fingerprints or other biometrics. The exception to this would be if they were under the age of 14 at the time of their PR application, are over 14 now, and the application was submitted after July 2018. Assuming from your question that the applications were submitted in January 2016, fingerprints would not be required. If you are unsure of your specific circumstances, Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada has an online tool that may help.
You are able to apply for citizenship at the same time as PR card renewal. Due to delays in the processing of citizenship applications, it is unlikely that the application would be processed before you travel in the summer. If you travel outside of Canada while your citizenship application is still in process, you will need a valid PR Card to return. After applying, you can submit the application for citizenship.



Sincerely,

Hi there,

Thank you for sharing your question and situation with us.




It sounds like you are looking for information on whether or not you have met your residency requirements to maintain PR status, you may also be interested in the Settlement.Org article, What are the residency requirements for permanent residents (PRs)?

To meet these residency obligations, you must be physically present in Canada for at least 730 days (2 years) in every 5-year period. The 5-year period is assessed on a rolling basis. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will look back at your time in Canada over the previous 5 years.



In terms of travelling, permanent residents can only use a valid PR Card or PRTD to return to Canada. Usually, a Travel Document can only be used once. You may want to read more about travelling without a PR card in this Settlement.Org article, I need to leave Canada but do not have my PR card yet. What should I do?

Here is an excerpt:
The only official documents that permanent residents of Canada can use to travel back to Canada on a commercial carrier (by air, land or sea) are the PR card or a Permanent Resident Travel Document (PRTD), also known as a Travel Document (Permanent Resident Abroad) issued by a Canadian visa office abroad.

If you are entering Canada in a private vehicle, such as your own car, and you do not present your PR card, you may be able to show other immigration documents.


If you are outside of Canada or plan to leave Canada and have immigration questions, you may want to contact the IRCC Call Centre or use their web form.

You may also want to contact a Lawyer or a reputable, registered Immigration Consultant who is familiar with Canadian immigration law for some advice specific to your situation.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to post them here.

We hope this information is helpful.
