Hey was just wondering if any of you have some experience with this or have any info...
My husband has a Bachelorīs degree from a private university here in Mexico...in International Commerce, he has his cedula profesional and everything. We are thinking it probably wonīt be valid in Canada. But where can I go to find out for sure? Or is there like a course he could take to make it valid in Canada? Should he get his degree translated here etc...? I just have no idea even where to start looking to find out more about this.
I'm pretty confident that International Commerce isn't a regulated profession in which you have to register with a provincial governing body in order to practise your profession (such as engineering, medicine, architecture, etc.) So his degree is valid and he can work wherever he wants.
The problem though, is going to be finding a job that will hire him, this is something very common with recently arrived immigrants. Just like anywhere else, most foreign degrees are held to a lower standard than local ones. Canadians think their universities are better, same with Australians, Europeans, etc. So that might be a problem. Now is he willing to go back to school? If he is, then he can probably get most of his credits validated and just go to a Canadian university for a year or so, this will greatly increase his employment opportunities.
My recommendation would be to check with a university in your city that offers this programme, and ask them what's up.
