About 300,000 people apply for immigration to Canada every year.
Under the Canadian Experience or Skilled Worker Class, Immigration Canada requires all applicants to take Language proficiency test, even those who have graduated with Bachelors, Masters or PhD degrees (even in English Literature) from recognized Canadian Universities.
The tests (IELTS, CELPIP, TEF) cost about $250 before tax & are often booked up well in advance, rendering the application process more expensive and needlessly cumbersome.
We, the undersigned, urge Immigration Canada to eliminate the requirement of language tests for applicants who have successfully completed full-time education (as defined by Immigration Canada) in recognized Universities of Canada.
