- Research the name of your occupation in Canada. Job titles and descriptions are not universal. What your occupation was called in your home country may be different than what it is called in Canada.
- Develop a resume. Before you arrive, develop a
resume that you can use in the Canadian

regulated occupation will require a licence whereas a
non-regulated occupation does not.
