FAQs sample filled lmia application form
What is your craziest Canadian immigration experience?Immigrating to Canada turned out to not entirely be what I expected.Part 1:I landed in Toronto-Pearson International Airport (YYZ) this past Monday afternoon, excited to begin my yearlong journey as an AI Resident at Uber ATG. Everything mostly went according to plan initially - I got off the plane, filled out the customs form, told the border officer I was applying for a temporary work permit, and went into the immigration room. Here the wait time was longer, but I waited ~40 min and got called up by an officer. Then I gave him all the necessary materials to process. After ~10 more minutes, he told me to go to the cashier to pay the work permit fee.The cashier and I had a short conversation. Then he asked me what I’ll be doing. “I’ll be doing AI research on self-driving cars,” I said.“Didn’t those self-driving cars kill someone a while back? And you’re bringing them into Canada?”“Well…”“I swear to god, if one of these self-driving cars comes and hits my house…my car…my family…my cat….I’m coming after you.”He also said some other things that I’d rather not repeat. He said all of this in a laughing manner so I laughed along but in the back of my mind I was thinking “Does he actually know where I live I just got here I don’t wanna die.”I took the receipt and went back to the immigration officer processing my application. As I’m standing there I see the cashier come out of his office, around the corner to where the immigration officer is sitting, and then point to me: “Do you see this fucking guy? This fucking guy is working on self-driving cars - he’s gonna kill us all.” They both laughed. “Remember, if you hit anybody in Canada, I’m coming after you,” the cashier repeated.I’m not the type of person who’s easily offended and to be honest the whole situation was pretty funny (I don’t actually feel threatened), but still that conversation was a bit strange. It was not a conversation I expected to have with Canadian immigration. Anyways, I got my work permit and headed out to the arrivals floor, and that was that! Right?Nope. While weird, my interactions with the officers didn’t cause me any actual inconvenience. But my immigration experience wasn’t over.Part 2:I woke up bright and early the next morning at my Airbnb and went down to the nearest Service Canada center at 8:45am to apply for my Social Insurance Number (SIN), which is similar to the SSN in the US. I need to have a SIN for basically everything involved with a long-term stay in Canada: getting paid, opening a bank account, signing a lease, paying taxes. I waited half an hour until my number was called, and then I went to the desk of the service rep and gave my work permit and passport.Within 30 seconds she told me that the country of birth on my work permit was incorrect. I double checked my permit and indeed it was. Somehow the immigration officer had filled it in wrong, even though the country of birth was listed right there on my passport. “Unfortunately you’ll have to get your work permit revised, and we can’t give you a SIN right now,” she said. Jesus.There was a number that I could call in the back of my permit for more information. I tried to call with my cell phone and got an automated message saying something like, “Your number is blocked because it’s not from a recognized area.” My phone plan had free roaming in Canada, but my number was still a US number. So I went back to the Service Canada center and asked if I could borrow the landline. Luckily they had one available. I sat in the chair and called the number again. After spending a bunch of time navigating through the phone menu, I finally found the number to speak to a human. “There are too many calls in the queue right now, please call back at a later time.” I waited 5 minutes and called again. “There are too many calls in the queue right now, please call back at a later time.”“Do you need any help?” The lady who assisted me asked. She picked up the phone and called the number for the third time. Somehow this time it finally got through, and she handed the phone back to me. Estimated wait time: 30 minutes. I sat for 30 minutes in this cramped chair, clutching the landline in the Service Canada office, waiting for a human to respond.Finally someone picked up. I explained to him my situation.“The only way you can make a change to your work permit is by mailing it in,” he said gruffly.“Um ok. How long would that take to process?”“1 month.”“1 month?? Are you serious (are you fucking kidding me)?? Can I not just go back to the airport?”“It won’t work.”“Are you sure?”“They can’t fix the work permits there. You can try, but it won’t work.”I hung up the phone. I was starting to panic. It was now 10:45–11am, and I had planned to open a bank account / start viewing apartments later that day; all those plans had vaporized. I double checked the web instructions for mailing the work permit in. In order to even mail in the work permit, I had to print and fill out two other forms and send everything in an envelope. How did postage even work in Canada? Also if it took 1 month for me to get the work permit fixed, I wasn’t even sure if I’d be allowed to be employed at that point. The research program was only supposed to last 1 year, and this 1-month delay would cut into that substantially. How was I going to live in this country? Was I going to be shipped back to the US?I frantically emailed my recruiters telling them about my situation. I then remembered that the immigration firm Uber partnered with, who helped me apply for the work permit, left the contact info of one of the lawyers, so I immediately called the number. Both times he didn’t pick up, and the second time I left a voicemail. In the meantime, I was pondering my backup options. One option was to actually mail in the work permit, but that was less than ideal. Moreover I didn’t entirely trust what the human operator said; it seemed ridiculous to me that the border agents couldn’t give me a revised work permit, given that they created the initial copy for me. I was contemplating going back to the airport to speak to the border agents anyways.5 minutes later, the lawyer called me back.“Go back to the airport to get your work permit fixed,” he said. “We’ll work everything out.”Oh my god. Something in his calm, assured voice told me everything was going to be alright.I walked out of Service Canada and took an Uber straight to YYZ (these Ubers aren’t cheap either, they’re about $50 CAD each) to the departures hall of Terminal 1. I followed the lawyer’s instructions on the phone to go to the back of the terminal, behind the bathroom, around a few corners, and finally to a metal door with a buzzer. I called the buzzer and said I needed to get my work permit fixed. The immigration agent let me in and told me to take the elevator down one floor.While the departures hall was bright, modern, and lit with sunshine, this room I stepped into was dim, cramped, and small. I told the border agent behind the glass barrier that I needed to get the country of birth on my work permit fixed.“I’m not sure this is possible to fix here,” he said. “Have you tried calling the number in the back?”“Yes I did.”“Well I don’t know if we can help.”“But I was on the phone with our immigration firm and they told me I could come here. Would you be able to take a look and just see if it’s possible? Please?”I was practically begging at this point. He took my work permit somewhat reluctantly and went into a back room. I waited. And waited for about 40 minutes.Finally, a separate border agent came up to the glass window. “We’re on the phone with [the immigration firm],” she told me. “We’ll try and get it fixed.”Thank god. I waited another 30–40 minutes and finally the agent came back with a new work permit. “You’re all set now.” I checked the new permit and indeed, the country of birth field was now correct. I then spent some time looking over every other detail so I didn’t have to go through the same experience again. I breathed a giant sigh of relief.By the time I got back to the Service Canada office, it was around 2pm. I immediately booked another appointment and managed to get my SIN that same day, though I didn’t have enough time afterwards to make an appointment to open a bank account before the bank closed. But that wasn’t a big deal. I was just incredibly relieved and happy that I would actually be able to work in this country.There are a few people that I wanted to thank. Thank you, Uber’s immigration firm, for helping me get my work permit revised in a timely fashion. They essentially helped me bypass a ton of official government bureaucracy; I’m honestly not sure what the border agents would have done if I had just shown up at the airport without the firm’s help. Thank you border agents for actually helping to revise my permit on the spot. Thank you Uber HR for responding quickly and helping to loop the relevant people in. Thank you to the service Canada rep who asked how I was doing and helped to give me advice. And thank you to the two Uber drivers to/from the airport who I was venting to.Moral of the story? I’m not sure, but maybe double check that your signNows are correct right after you get them from immigration, because getting them fixed is a huge pain. I was incredibly fortunate that I was able to work with an immigration firm, and I understand that many others are not so lucky. I was also fortunate that I had not yet started work, and so had ample time to get set up - figuring that out while working would have created an additional mental burden and taken much longer. I’m still befuddled that a small mistake by an immigration officer can seriously affect your ability to live and work here if you don’t have the right means to tackle it.
How can you get a job before getting PR status in Canada?Getting a job in Canada before getting a PR status is very difficult, but not impossible.Below, I will explain a few ways people I currently work with and know have done this.Take note that in some cases, if you are on a work permit in Canada, employers may not give you a full time job. Because a work permit is not considered “permanent” they will be hesitant to invest in a full time position for someone who does not have a guaranteed residency in Canada.But contract work is still possible. Here we go:OPTION 1: The luckiest and riskiest way - Your company in India transfers you on a special projectAt the company I currently work at, our IT division is outsourced to HCL. Project Managers and IT engineers from Bangalore and Noida are currently based out of our Brampton office. They were hired as “temporary foreign workers” from Canada’s International Mobility Program for a couple of years. After 1-2 years of experience, they may be eligible for permanent residency from one of the following programs:Canadian Experience Class (CEC) program – “I have 1 year of full time work experience in Canada, in a job that is classified in the Canadian National Occupation Classification (NOC).”Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) – “I have 2 years of full time work experience in Canada, in a job that is NOC classified, and the company loves me so much that they are willing to nominate me to apply for permanent residency.”The reason this is a risky choice is because you are not in control. Ultimately, you’re relying on the good will of your company and its success to dictate if you stay in Canada or pack up back to India.One of my colleagues in my team, Balaji, has been working with us for 2 years now. He is on a contracted project from HCL Bangalore. He has even brought his wife here on a sponsored work permit. Very soon, he will apply for permanent residency with CEC and I’m sure he will get it.OPTION 2: The expensive way - Apply for educationA friend of mine, Manjeet, moved from Pune to Canada and applied for a public relation course in Seneca College for $7,000.Once he completed the course he was given an open work permit for a year, and was given an opportunity to do internships with PR companies. This is standard for most educational institutes in Canada. He still had to formally apply for the job - internships are also like applying for normal jobs.During that one year, he networked like crazy. Called people, knocked on doors, attended events, seminars. He really took the time and effort to understood the PR market in Canada even though he had 7 years of experience doing it back home. I really admire his courage and drive.The company he applied for the internship for gave him the job.They loved his work and his personality. They will apply for PNP for him and he will get his permanent residency through them. (At his expense)Networking is one of the most effective ways of finding jobs, especially in the hidden job market. I have written a blog here, specifically on how you can network in Canada, especially as a newcomer.OPTION 3: The useless, time wasting way - Apply for jobs online at Monster, Workopolis, Indeed, LinkedIn etc.Imagine you are a HR hiring manager working for Tata Consultancy Services in Delhi. You have a job available and you receive 20 resumes. 19 are from HR professionals with great experience and fit the requirements, and they all live in Delhi. One is from a HR professional with great experience and fits the requirements, and she lives in Canada. Would you hire the Canadian?Please don’t waste your time applying for jobs on the online boards. Your resume is either not being looked at all, or is being tossed aside. Unless your skills on signNow are so rare and exceptional and no one else living in Canada applying for the same job has it, you have no chance of securing a job in Canada this way.There is only one use for the job boards online. You can review the job descriptions of what is being asked in your line of work, and notice if there are any gaps that you can fill from now till you land. If you’re planning to get into project management for example, and you’re seeing “PMP is an asset”, get it done now while you have the comfort and support of your home base.Another use for the online job descriptions is if you’re in a regulated field. If you’re in the engineering, medical, teaching, accounting, HR field and some others, prepare to go back to school. In Ontario for example, you can view the list of bridging programs here. Colleges and universities generally host these programs. Whether you can do them online while you are in India, I do not know. You will have to contact the respective training institute to find out.So what’s the best choice?Most people should fall in the Option 2 category but they make the mistake of relying on option 3. The reason I stress on networking is because in Canada, it’s not about what you know, it’s about who you know. There are 300K immigrants per year + 1 million college students + 6.5% unemployment rate in Canada – lots of competition! The job is awarded to the person the hiring manager trusts, and trust is most likely given to the person they know first hand.I have given a detailed explanation on how you can get a job offer while in India here.Networking is not just a one time activity, it’s a way of life. Regardless of which choice you pick, get into this habit while in India, while you still have time before the big move, so you can leverage this network after you land.Indians will have many challenges to face when looking for jobs, specifically because there are cultural difference between India and Canada.It doesn’t matter how many years of experience you have in India. As a human being, you have been raised with a specific culture. How you act, think and interact with others in the work place forms part of that culture.Cultural differences between Canada and India you need to knowIn Canada, more importance is placed on experience and accomplishments. Not on education.It doesn’t matter if you have a bachelors or masters or PHD. Recruiters firstly have no idea about the education system in India. Even if you state your WES equivalency, it’s not about your education, it’s about whether you have done the same job before.In your resume, it is very important to highlight your accomplishments and support it with numbers.For example, if you are an IT engineer, just listing “I resolved general IT problems for the staff” is not enough. State an accomplishment - “I resolved IT problems for the staff and reduced the incident count by 15% per year.”Also in Canada, people are specialized. If your resume promotes you as a jack of all trades and a master of none, it will not win any hearts of the Canadian recruiters.For example, if you are a civil engineer and your resume states you can build and fix anything, it’s not specific enough. Look at this link to see the various job titles for civil engineers. Likewise, you can Google “Job Titles for xxxx job in Canada”I have created a Canadian friendly resume template with guidelines on my blog. Go to any blog and you will be prompted to download the document.I continue my research on job search strategies to help new Indian immigrants like yourself at my website Zero2Hired. I write weekly Canadian-friendly job search tips and interview successful Canadian job finders as well, as they share their stories.I also share job search tips and advice from other experts on Twitter @connelvalentine

What is the step-by-step procedure to apply for Canada PR?After having lived through the horror of my own immigration process, and seeing countless other people making the same mistake, I thought its better to lay out the most effective, easy to understand and follow, approach to Canadian immigration.Some basic info on Canadian ImmigrationFor all immigration purposes, the Canadian Govt. has developed a really good website that you’ll need at every step of the application here on - Immigrate to Canada. Thanks to this website, you don’t need an attorney or consultant.Canada offers multiple channels for immigration, that you can make use of:Express Entry: Most popular and fastest immigration route, run by the Federal govt.. Meant for skilled people. Manages three economic immigration programs:Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSW) - Skilled workers with foreign experience. All professionals in sales, marketing, IT, finance, legal, medicine, etc. fall under this category.Federal Skilled Trades Program (FST) - People qualified in a skilled trade with foreign experience. Chefs, bakers, equipment operators, etc. fall under this category.Canadian Experience Class (CEC) - Skilled workers who have Canadian work experience.Provincial Nominee: Second most popular channel. Meant for people who do not have sufficient score to clear Express Entry. Run by each individual province. Program opens on ad-hoc basis. If you get nominated, then you must spend 2 years in the province, before you can move to any other province.Family Sponsorship: Existing permanent residents can sponsor their relatives, including their spouse, partner, children, parents, grandparents, and others to immigrateQuebec-selected skilled worker: Immigration program run separately by the province of Quebec. Meant for people who want to live in Quebec specifically.Start-up Visa: Have a start-up idea and can bring in local jobs? Canada will give you a PR, if your idea is accepted by a designated organization and implemented.Self-Employed: Can contribute culturally or in athletics to Canada.Atlantic Immigration Pilot: Immigrate by graduating from a school or working in New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, or Newfoundland and Labrador. This program is meant to boost the economies of Atlantic provinces that usually don’t see much immigration influx.RefugeesMajority of the applicants apply via Express Entry, Provincial Nomination or Family Sponsorship. For this answer, I’ll focus exclusively on Federal Skilled Worker Program.Canadian immigration is entirely points based. Every applicant is awarded fixed points for their education, age, language abilities, marital status, spouse’s qualifications, etc. The system that awards these points is called the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS).Every month, the Canadian Immigration Agency - IRCC, announces a cut-off score. All applicants with CRS score above this cut-off receive an invitation to apply for permanent residence. The ones that don’t qualify remain in the pool.STEP-BY-STEP PROCEDURE TO APPLY FOR CANADIAN PRSTEP 1: Check your eligibility (Cost: Free, Time: 10 mins)Use this quick online tool from the Canadian Govt. to check if you are eligible to apply. Do you want to come to Canada, or extend your stay? Scoring Criteria >> Eligibility to apply as a Federal Skilled Worker (Express Entry).STEP 2: Gauge your chances early (Cost: Free, Time: 15 mins - 2 hours)If you are eligible to apply, then I strongly recommend you to check your CRS score with your info and hypothetical scores for IELTS >> Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) tool: skilled immigrants (Express Entry). At this stage, there are some important factors that will adversely affect your application:IELTS score: You need to score at least 8–7–7–7 (Listening, reading, writing, speaking respectively), to sufficient points to compete in the pool. Anything less than this, will cost you tonnes of points.Education: If you have a Bachelor/Masters, do some background research to check if World Education Services (WES), the authority that will assess your educational qualifications, will consider your university degree equivalent to a Canadian Bachelors/Masters. Reason why I say this is because if you have a Masters from a tier 3 college, and if WES does not find it equivalent to a Canadian degree, then you will end up being recognized as an applicant with only a Bachelors degree, losing crucial points in the process. Doing this check at this stage will save you a lot of money and trouble.Age: Every year beyond the age of 30, applicants will lose 5 points. So if you are planning to apply at a later date, then be sure to keep this mind.Work Experience: While claiming for work experience, note that Canada assumes that you have always worked in the same job classification, as denoted by your NOC code. If you were a Marketer for 3 years, and an Interior Designer for 2 years, then you cannot claim a combined work experience of 5 years. Choose whichever experience you want to claim, and stick with that corresponding NOC throughout your application.Spouse: It is not mandatory to have your spouse take the IELTS and verify their educational credentials. But if your CRS calculator shows you with points in the range of 400–430, then consider entering hypothetical IELTS scores for your spouse, and also entering their educational credentials.Try multiple permutations and combinations of the above factors in the CRS tool before you even begin your PR journey. Now, go through the CRS draws announced in the past few months with this link >> Express Entry rounds of invitations. This will help you get an idea about where you currently stand.For e.g., for this entire year, the draws have always been around 440–445. So look for a hypothetical CRS configuration that will help you score more than this cut-off.Everyone with a CRS score of 400+ should proceed to the next step. Others who aren’t scoring as much, should do a little bit more research and consider alternative immigration methods.Protip: I suggest taking a free mock IELTS test to actually check how much you score. Your entire application may rest on the laurels of your language abilities, so I would give particular attention to this.Another ProTip: If your spouse is younger than you, or has higher educational credentials, then please let them be the primary applicant instead.STEP 3: Educational Credentials Assessment (Cost: INR 20,000 per person, Time: 30–45 days)Dipak has an excellent step-by-step process on how to do this >> Dipak Maheshwari's answer to What is the process to get Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) for Canada PR from WES? This assessment will take you approximately one month, so get started at the earliest. Some things to keep in mind:I chose the express shipment via UPS at CAD 85 to receive the document. People who have chosen the cheapest delivery option have had mixed results. So take your chances.I also chose to have my university send the transcripts and degree certificates directly to WES, with the reference number mentioned. Works flawlessly, saves time.STEP 4: Take the “IELTS General Training” test (Cost: INR 11,500 pp, Time: depends on test date availability)While you initiate the WES ECA process, also start looking for available IELTS test dates in your city. Considering the heavy demand for IELTS for both immigration and education, test dates are at least 20 days away in many cities around the world. Having said that, I strongly suggest that you take a test date that’s at least 30 days away to give you ample time to prepare for the test.ProTip: Some tips to score well on your IELTS examSTEP 5: Start saving money in your bank account as Proof of FundsAs part of the PR process, Canadian immigration rules require you to have sufficient funds to manage your living expenses when you first arrive. Through the PR process, applicants need to prove that they have the necessary funds in their bank account. For more details on the amount, type of funds, etc >> Proof of funds - Skilled immigrants (Express Entry)In case you don’t have the sufficient funds, consider saving the required funds in your bank account at the same time you decide to apply for PR. Its best to show a gradual accumulation of funds in your account, rather than sudden, bulk transfers.ProTip: If you have a salary account, maintain the account balance with every monthly salary credit. Use your spouse’s income for other expenses.STEP 6: Create your Express Entry profile (Cost: Free, Time: 1 hour)After you have received your ECA and IELTS reports, go ahead and create an express entry profile. IRCC has a fantastic and easy to understand guide on creating your Express Entry profile. Submit an Express Entry profile: Online form. Submit your application. You’ll receive a confirmation via email, and within the application inbox inside the CIC portal. You’ll also receive the CRS score that the system has given you, and will be placed in the Express Entry pool.From here on, keep a close eye on the draws announced by IRCC. If your CRS score clears the cut-off, then you will receive an Invitation to Apply within 24–48 hours, via email.In case the cut-off appears to be far beyond your signNow, and if you feel there is nothing more you can do to add more points to your profile, then consider applying for Provincial Nomination Programs instead. Am not an expert in PNP process, but you can seek help through a legion of fellow applicants over at CanadaVisa forums >> Provincial Nomination Program ImmigrationSTEP 7: Post-ITA Documentation (Cost: INR 10,000 pp, Time: 60 days)Congratulations on receiving your ITA! You have now successfully completed the major hurdle of your immigration journey. All that is left now is to provide the documentation expected of you within the time limit, and if everything is in order, you’ll receive your PR confirmation.The documents you will need to prepare at this stage are:Medical Exam at a IRCC authorized center. (INR 8500 per person in metros)Police Clearance Certificate from Passport Seva Kendra (INR 500 per person) >> (How to get a PCC)If you have lived in a foreign country for more than 5 months cumulatively, then you will have to procure a police clearance from those authorities. This can take a while, so get started on this first. (Note: IRCC says 6 months, but I have seen people with 5 months of stay also being asked for PCC)Reference letter from employer. (More Details)Bank Statement & Digital PhotosSTEP 8: Application Submission and PPR (Cost: INR 50,000 pp, Time: None)After having prepared the documents, you need to submit these in the system and make the final payments.INR 26,250 - Application Processing fee: CAD 550 per personINR 23,400 - Right of Permanent Residence Fee (RPRF): CAD 490 per person ~ (Note: this can also be paid when you are landing in Canada)INR 7160 - Dependent Child: CAD 150 per childIf you have successfully paid your fees and submitted the application, you’ll receive an Acknowledgment of Receipt (AoR) via email and within the application inbox.From here on, all you need to do is wait for an email from IRCC requesting your passport. Among the immigration community, this is called PPR - passport request. At this stage, you can be 99% sure that your PR has been confirmed. Once you receive this email, you visit the nearest VFS Global center, submit your passport and photos, and await for the final visa stamping.ProTip: Paying your RPRF will reduce the processing time by 4–7 days.STEP 9: Pre-arrival and landingAlthough you have received the PR confirmation in Step 8, the process is not yet officially concluded. One year from the date of your medicals, your immigration visa will expire. Within this time, you and your dependents must enter Canada by Flight or car at the border crossing, and complete the formalities. >> Sandeep's answer to What are the first steps after signNowing Canada?ProTip: Signup with settlement agencies like SOPA or PlanningForCanada that will help you with orientation and other useful information. Also plan to land 3 months after receiving your PR.This concludes the step-by-step process for obtaining a Canadian PR. All the best, folks!P.S.

What should I do to settle in Canada?I lived and worked in Canada for more than a year which probably qualifies me to answer your question.I assume to settle down, you mean getting a permanent residence status. Canada recently changed its immigration laws which makes difficult to get PR for those also who are already in Canada and also studied there.Express entry is a point based system. Draw happens every month usually. This draw is simply minimum point requirement for invitation to apply. Your points depends on lot of things. You can find many express entry point calculators which will give you idea what your score is. Score depends on a lot of factors like your education, work experience, age, marital status and more.If you can secure a job in Canada and get LMIA (labour market impact assessment), it makes your chances of getting an invite from CIC much bright for PR. LMIA will add 600 points to your profile where the current draw is doing rounds nearly about 450.But first and foremost, you need to give language test. Getting a good score in language test helps you score more points. If your education is not from Canada, you are required to verify your credentials. You can do that with WES.Once you do these things, you can create your express entry profile on CIC website. I am not very sure but if you are not in Canada then you cannot apply under provincial nominee (I shall update you on it).Once you meet the required points criteria in express entry draw, you'll get the invitation from CIC to apply for PR. You will be required to submit a lot of documents which CIC will verify during its process. You will also need to submit security clearance certificate which you need to get from your embassy. You need to make sure your documents doesn't contain any mistakes. If there is any mistake from your part, it'll delay your processing time.If everything goes well, you will hear from CIC within 6 months. If you are granted permanent residency, you will be asked to submit your passport to CIC and they will return you the passport within 2-3 weeks with Canadian visa (if you require).You'll receive then PR approval letter and instruction on how to get your PR card.P.S. You will be required to pay the fees for application ;)Next: Congratulations on getting a PR !! :)Hope this helpsEdit 1:One important thing is, you are required to create a job bank account on cic job bank.

How worth is doing MS in Canada?I can answer the question from the viewpoint of a Masters in one of the Engineering schools from any of the top Universities in Canada (UToronto, UBC, McGill, McMaster, UofA, Waterloo etc.)There are two types of Masters in Canada - MEng (Course based) and MSc (Thesis based). There’s generally no MS degree as such that I have heard of in Engineering.The MSc students are generally paid a stipend of around 1800–2300 CAD per month on an average depending on your thesis supervisor in return to working as a Research/Teaching Assistant. You could negotiate for a fee waiver altogether or the differential fee waiver (which is the difference between what Canadians pay and what international students pay) with your supervisor, but these are usually difficult to get. Nonetheless, what you get in the end is generally sufficient for a single person in their twenties and living with roommates to survive fairly well in any of the cities without much indulgences.The MEng students don’t get any stipend but they generally end up working part-time for a minimum wage which can potentially cover their living expenses, so they have to pay the fees from their own pockets. In the end these Canadian Univs, being public institutions, have very reasonable fees (8–10k CAD per annum). Even if you end up with an education loan, it’s not going to be a huge stress factor in your life.The quality of teaching is fairly good. The quality of research depends entirely on your supervisor, but is generally very very good in Canada. Most of the MSc students I interacted with in my time ended up with 1–2 publications in fairly impactful journals. If you are really interested in research, this can be the best time of your life.But on the flip side, if you are not interested in research, then this can be the worst time of your life as well. Whether you get your degree or not can be a little too dependent on your adviser, which is a sticky area. If you don’t have a good relationship there, this can add a lot of stress and heartburn to your life. Graduate students are cheap labor for the Univs and a lot of profs don’t want to let them go. Some students in my time had their MSc’s extended to 3 years and go through a tough time. Make sure you research your supervisor well from ratemyprof or any other source of info before committing to a thesis with them.After finishing your degree, you get an open work permit which allows to stay and work for any employer and which is a pathway to getting a PR in the country. Once you start applying for jobs in the real world, it will be entirely different ballgame. The Canadian industry is very limited in the scope of doing business and opportunities are far and few between. A lot of the Masters graduates have to wait for 3–6 months after the degree to get a job. I have seen some people return to India in this period. The chances of getting a job in your area of expertise is generally minuscule and most people just end up getting a job in any general engineering enterprise. Thus, the awesome knowledge gained during the Masters is offset by the lack of opportunity to apply that knowledge in the real world.The industry has its own set of rules and politics that has to be navigated and Masters graduates often find that their peers who join with just a bachelors get the same, if not more, impetus at the workplace. So in effect, the Masters degree doesn’t really get you any edge in the industry.
