PR/Skilled Worker & taking CCA?

  1. 0
    Hi everyone,

    this is my first time to write and finally decided to join in the forum.
    I applied for the College of Registered Nurses of Manitoba (CRNM) roughly by the end of 2008. and the whole year of 2009 was spent sending documents and competing other requirements (IELTS and IQAS to name a few) required by the college and as instructed by my Representative who reside in Ontario. A Canadian immigration Lawyer, who act on behalf of me with the College. and after all the long wait and the patience-is-a-virtue ideology, it was just early this year I received the result of my assessment from the College and it states that as an IEN under the Practicing Registered Nurse Registration I have to undergo a Clinical Competemncy Assessment or CCA inside Canada before I can be Eligible to sit for CRNE. CCA will provide the nurse opportunity to demonstrate that they meet entry-level compemtencies in Manitoba and is completed over 3-5 day period.

    Is this similar to the SEC assessment in other provinces?

    I have already received my Invitation letter addressed to the Canadian Consulate, for the said Assessment. and I am applying for a Permanent Resident/Federal Skilled Worker Category and my Representative in Canada is already working with my employer to come up for my Arrange Employment Opinion (AEO) before we can file my Immigration.
    Is this the correct process?
    My Representative will file it there in Ontario and not here in Manila. Is this possible? I have already sent the PR forms and documents and payments with it. and aslo my IELTS will expiring this december 2010. Will be there any issues if ever the process of my application for PR/Skilled Worker will go beyond this year? Im afraid they havent file my immigration yet since they are waiting for the HRSDC'S file number for my AEO.

    Do you have any idea on how much long this will take? ive been waiting for 2 years now since I applied for CRNM. AND STILL my PR/Skilled Worker is just about to be filed. How much waiting is there more?

    Please enlighten me with my dilemma.
    Thanks fellow nurses

    Does sound like it is something similar to SEC.

    Processing times will vary especially now that things have changed and all documents have to go to CIC Sydney NS first including language exam

    CCA and SEC are essentially the same thing. The only differences will be minor and location-specific.

    thanks, silverdragon and janfrm.
    was really hoping to hear from you guys.

    yea, thats was my dilemma before when I was conversing via email to the registration dept of CRNM; though my hours of practice is valid for the past 5 years, still I have to take CCA/ Clinical Competency Assessment and she said that mostly of IENs are advised to take this. and later on, it turned out that I have to take it when I received the assessment result of my application from CRNM and is valied tor 1 year aswell

    the thing is, I cant get inside Canada until my immigration papers are done. my PR/fed skilled Worker category is just to be filed and my representatives in Canada is working with my AEO's approval from HRSDC.

    have an idea how long is the processing time for PR in Federal Skilled worker Category, with an Offer by an Employer approved by HRSDC?

    I don't see how your representative can do what he said he's doing. First, no employer can offer you work since you're not yet qualified for a nursing job nor eligible to write CRNE yet. Second, you can apply for Permanent Resident/Federal Skilled Worker Category in a country only where you have legal status. And regarding your IELTS, my understanding is that the Centralized Intake Office (task to have initial evaluation of your papers) requires that IELTS should be valid for 1 year or more. I suggest that you should thoroughly do research at official CIC website and be cautious to unscrupulous immigration lawyers whose only after your money. I'm really sorry for the bad news but it's not yet too late to turn things around.

    Already posted CIC website that you need to look at. English exam (or French) is required when you send in your initial application (this has been the case now for 2 months) You can fill for PR if you are skilled worker with 12 months paid full time employment
