I have done Bachelors of Engineering from one of the top 10 engineering colleges in India and Master of Science in Industrial Engineering from USA. I will be applying under Information Technology Category based on my IT work experience.

I am in my initial stage and gathering all the information from CIC website. My spouse has done Masters in healthcare and Bachelors of physical therapy.

1) I have studied Canada immigration CIC website but I am not very clear, if getting my spouse education assessment is mandatory or ONLY when we need to get points for her education then only her education assessment is needed ?


Also I don’t know French but if I learn French would it make application stronger ?

1) if you want the points for your wife's education experience, you need to get an assessment done.

Please keep in mind that because of the difference in standards between India and Canada, Masters and Bachelor's degrees granted in India may not be assessed to be equivalent to a Canadian Bachelors and/or Masters degrees.

2) It isn't necessary for you to learn French at this point in time. There is no way that you'll be able to learn enough French in a short time to score well in the assessment tests... I am Canadian born and educated and I took some French classes in high school and at university (in the 1990s) and I occasionally speak French with my husband in our home - I would have to revise for a couple of months before I would be confident enough to sit the exams and, even at that, I would likely be hard pressed to get a high grade.

- We don't want points for her for some reason. Though she has done master's can we still mention "None" in education question for spouse ? Would it mean we are giving false information or just we don't want to get points for her so not showing her education.

I am not able to find link to send message to you only as I have more query related to my spouse assessment. Could you please share your email id if possible ?

Why wouldn't you want the extra points?

Why not just post your question here. There is no need to email people privately.

In one of the links of assessing authorities of CIC website, I am surprised to see that my spouse Bachelor's college is showing as blacklisted....not sure what is the reason...She did her bachelors around around 13 years back....She has done Masters also......I am not clear if for assessment of both Bachelor's and Master's degree is needed or just masters....if both are required then I was thinking to better skip her education assessment if it could create any unnecessary issue later.....

Education assessment for college in India

Please clarify if both bachelors and masters degree assessment is needed ? If yes, does the college has to send transcripts etc from directly to canadian assessing authorities or we can send after signed and sealed from college ?

I have done Bachelors from India and Masters of Science from USA in same field so asking college in India to send marksheets directly to Canada might not work out so concerned.
