      I am a Nurse in my country and it is a regulated profession here in Canada. I have submitted my application with National Nurses Assessment Service and paid the fees. I also have my schedule for my English exam which is called CELBAN ( Canadian English Language Benchmark Assessment for Nurses. The earliest available slot I got is on September 26. NNAS will start processing my file when all the documents are completed which includes my English exam result. Thanks to Manitoba Start for the instructions on the requirements and the information available online at NNAS and CRNM website. has provided other information and the online workshop is helpful in discussing some information and experiences related to the topic. I used to watch videos and read stories of immigrants who have been successful in Canada, thanks for the links provided here.

      Hi everybody! I would like to be considered for the position of Electrician (NOC 7241) in Winnipeg. The skills and knowledge that I have gained through my Master’s degree in the sphere of electric and power engineering and the diversity of my work experience make me well qualified for that position.
      To legally work in this trade in Manitoba, I must be a registered apprentice or have a Certificate of Qualification and hold a Journeyperson Electrician Licence.
      Firstly, to become an Electrician, I must find a qualified employer to hire me as an apprentice. Then I will need to be registered as an apprentice. After my application is approved and my apprenticeship agreement is registered, I will learn the skills of the chosen trade by working closely with certified trades professionals in the business. For the work I do, my employer pays me wage.
      The apprenticeship is four years consisting of four levels. Practical and technical training is a minimum of 1800 hours per level. About 80 per cent of the time is spent learning practical on-the-job skills under the supervision of a certified journeyperson and 20 per cent consists of learning the theoretical and technical aspects of the trade through in-school training.
      When I successfully complete all my required levels of practical experience and passing the required exams, I will receive my Certificate of Qualification. Then I will achieve 70% or higher on my final exam, I will qualify for an interprovincial or “Red Seal” endorsement.
      For general information about apprenticeship trades, training and certification in Manitoba I will direct my inquiries to Apprenticeship Manitoba.
      I can not start the official licensing process before my arrive but I could prepare information about potential qualified employer to hire me as an apprentice. Also I can learn about how I will register as an apprentice.
