Hilmarie posted a topic in ApplicationHi, I have a question regarding the spelling of my given name on express entry profile and PR application. On my passport my given name ends in an "é" but because a lot of online systems does not allow one to use any special characters my name on e.g. my IELTS certificate and WES letters ends in an "e" and not an "é". According to information on the CIC website "If a document used to identify a name contains a name with rench accents such as "é" in the VI, the spelling can be used when establishing a name record in CIC's system of record. My question is two-fold: (1) Should I spell my given name exactly as on my passport i.e. with the "é" or just with an "e"? (2) Will it cause problems if my name on my EE profile is spelled with an "é" while my name on my IELTS and WES forms is spelled with an "e"? Thank you.
