Hi All,

Under express entry there is a question do you have a certificate of qualification from a Canadian province, territory or federal body?
I am working in the IT sector now in my home country. I have applied for certification from CIPS(Canada's association of IT professionals). Is this certification recognised in Canada as a certificate of qualification? Anyone applied for certification from CIPS before? Would appreciate your advice on how i can use this qualification.

Regards
Ken

Certificate of qualification only applies to certain NOC's that involve trades (carpenter, plumber, electrician, etc), even if you have such certification it will not add any CRS points.

What about teaching? If I get a certificate will my score change?

It does add 50 important points! And are you sure that they won't count CIPS membership for a province?

I think you can select yes as you have cleared the exam and obtained the certificate.

My NOC is B, does the Food Handler certification is considered a Certificate of qualification?
Im afraid to say “yes”.

“Do you have a certificate of qualification from a Canadian province, territory or federal body?

Note: A certificate of qualification lets people work in some skilled trades in Canada. Only the provinces, territories and a federal body can issue these certificates. To get one, a person must have them assess their training, trade experience and skills to and then pass a certification exam.

People usually have to go to the province or territory to be assessed. They may also need experience and training from an employer in Canada.”
