Finding the career of your choice in Canada is a process and with the right approach it is not difficult to land in your field of expertise .
Most of us have studied in Indian Universities . Although the Universities like IITs are in the top Univ of the world, In Canada there is not so much awareness of IITs and other Indian Universities.
The most important step in this process is to get your qualification acquired in India accredited by the Canadian Universities.
In Ontario there are a few agencies which offer this service. One such is Comparative Education Service (CES). They provide assessments of international academic qualifications and compares them to those offered in Canada, which helps employers to better understand our clients' credentials. CES letters of assessment are highly valued by employers and immigration agencies throughout the world. For example, our letters are often requested by US Customs officials for the purpose of obtaining a TN Visa to work in the United States.
