Those who do not have these Canadian certificates but have foreign, they will have to undertake ECA to validate their worth to the Canadian educational system.
On the job offer category, candidates should possess a job offer that is from an employer located in Atlantic province, have been reviewed by the province, and non-seasonal. They have grouped high skilled workers into levels 0, A, and B, which will be the preset condition for candidates.
