Default Mr.Humphries/ Mr.Metcalfe/ PMM - your comments please

I need your advice...

I am confused about intended occupations and intended destinations.


1) If an applicant indicates the following Quebec destinations, as the
final destination on IMM008:- Estrie / Montreal/ Montregie, could that
go against the principle of stating only a single intended
destination, on IMM008.

although I did not indicate the reasons for listing these places, I
selected them as they were within 2hrs driving time of each other, and
they surround the greater montreal region. Because, at this point, I
am unsure on where I will be able to find housing, or ultimately where
I would be able to secure a job offer.


2) Also, on IMM008 I listed two occupations that I was prepared to
follow in Quebec. However, after submitting IMM008, whilst
researching job opportunities and corresponding NOC requirements, I
now wish to pursue any job that I am qualified to do, after arrival in
Que..

This includes skill levels A, B, C, or if I am unable to find anything
else, skill level D occupations. I have completed training in the
areas of IT and electro-technology as per the NOC requirements,
therefore I was hoping to take up any position, at par or below my
qualifications, if required.

but would that be allowed? are there any technicalities that I should
be aware of ? based on your experience, would CIC or quebec
immigration take issue at that?

Hi,
Just say Greater Montreal as your destination. Choose the highest level
occupation you qualify for. After you land you can take what employment you
can find.

thanks for responding Jim.

I did forget to mention, I am required to attend a selection interview
with CIC.

In correspondence sent to the canadian consulate, after submission of
IMM008, I did indicate that I was prepared to accept any job in Que.,
as long as I met the related NOC employment requirements, and that I
was headed for Estrie/ Montreal/ Montregie.

As the Que. definitions specifically state that, skill level D
occcupations cannot be counted as professional experience, I was
unsure whether I should say that I am willing to take up skill D
occupations after arrival. So, would the interviewing officer be
required to assess my qualifications against each of my intended
occupations in Que.?

Also, during job search after submission of IMM008, I found more
positions in my intended occupations on Mtl island, rather than in
other region, and I was preparing to show the interviewing officer the
job ads.. It is also likely that I will settle in a location close to
place of work.

However, as I have already indicated Estrie / Montregie/ montreal as
intended destinations on both SIQ as well as CIC application forms,
would CIC consider applicants in my positon to be, unsure of their
intended destinations in Canada?

hi there,

always thought Quebec immigration was'nt as picky as Canada
immigration, about where people settled in the province and what jobs
they did, after arrival!

Mountain sights community centre in montreal has just won an award for
providing assistance to new immigrants, via providing assistance to
have foreign credentials assessed & mentoring. Maybe, once you get to
Mtl, they would help you secure a job in your chosen profession.

...I was only trying to be helpful. The present job market in mtl &
environs. is not what it used to be a couple of years ago. New
arrivals always find it difficult, even with support organisations. I
would say postpone your trip if you can.
