It’s Remembrance Day here today so Service Canada and Banks etc are closed, I’ll apply for my SIN and all the other stuff tomorrow.

      Hi @Annelisef. For your NOC, the main focus would be on the responsibilities/duties, and not the education background. I myself studied Civil Engineering, but my NOC was for a actuary/mathematician/statistician. Even my NOC said that a degree in Maths/ Actuarial Sciences are usually required, and had no problems at all with an Engineering degree. As I said, most important is to ensure that the duties are in line with what your husband does.

      @BobbyV I saw you mentioned something along this way. Are you able to give some advice?

      We are using DocAssist for our police clearance, but we are already now in our sixth week of waiting after DocAssist received our fingerprints. It seems pretty slow so far.

      SAIPA or SAICA? I think if you are registered with SAIPA it is a lot more than redoing tax exams, but that is just from what I've read? What is your designation, AGA (SA)?
