Default QUEBEC ASC

Hi guys,

I got my Quebec ASC application pack today from the Hongkong office
after sending the preliminary application earlier about 6 weeks ago.
I'm just looking at what is required to submit the application and it
asks for letters from all employers stating length of employment,
responsibilities etc.. however, i only have a simple letter from my
ex-employers stating my title (Associate) and length of employment.
They don't provide any detailed letters of reference. Would this be
acceptable to the Quebec immigration office?

Anyone with similar experience?

Thanks.

Hi

Usually most of employment letters do not provide detailed information
about the work performed by former employee. My personal oppinion is
that such letters should be enough, given that you described in
details what you've done at particular company in your CV which must
be attached to application. If the interview is scheduled, it wont be
difficult for interviewing officer to find out whether your CV
corresponds reality or not. But again, its my personal opinion only

Provided that the letters are on company letterhead. That should be
sufficient. However if your occupation requires registration,
accountant, engineer, nurse etc, then you maybe required at a later
stage to provide further details. Just to note, I applied through
Hong Kong and it took about 6 months to receive my CSQ. I did not
have an interview.

Thanks Ashley. Do you fall in the preferred occupation list? At which
stage are you in your application? Thanks again. This was helpful

george, you don't state which country you submitted the CSQ
application from.

Even if the hong kong SIQ office has the jurisdiction to consider your
application, if you do not live in hong kong or another country close
by, and if an interview is required, you will be put in the interview
queue of the canadian consulate, in your country of residence, unless
there is an unreasonable delay in obtaining interviews. (this is what
happened to me.)

Canada Immigration officers who interview you, would try to obtain
independent confirmation of your job duties at your place of work, as
the CSQ is considered a skilled worker category. Therefore, if your
boss at your work place gives a wrong answer with regards to your job
duties, your CSQ application could be in trouble.

I agree with Ashley and would suggest you prepare a colleague at your
work place to parrot out whatever job duties you claim in your
application.

Now I got confused...I thought the CSQ was enough, and all the Federal
Government did
was security and medical checks. By security I assumed things such as
credit/criminal
checks et al.
I plan to apply for my CSQ next year, after I visit Montreal to learn
French. Under
the Federal schemes I would be nowhere near the 75 points, but under the
Quebec
system, my chances look much better under the Employability and Mobility
Scheme.
Can anyone clarify if this is correct (CSQ enough assuming medical and
security checks
go ok)?
TIA
Luis

i'm currently in singapore as a PR here and i'm applyng through Hongkong.
do you actually mean that the Quebec immigration officials would contact my
workplace to obtain confirmation of my work experience? thats craZy! what if
it's not in my best interest for my boss to know about my immigration plans
or what if my company's policy is not to reveal much information to anyone,
as it is for many firms???????????????????????

Luis,

After CSQ is issued, Canada Immigration is responsible for considering
addmissibility. Admissibity includes checking to see whether an
application adheres to all rules found in the Quebec immigration act
for that particular category. These checks include medical, police
clearance, background, education, employment etc..

Hope that helps..

Thanks for your reply....so, providing I don't try and embellish things,
there should be no problem. It does seem silly to me to do all the checks
twice though!
