  10. 10. Connections & Partnerships Success story: License to Architecture leads to Integration Success Arindam Bose, “CIIP played a significant role in our preparation for Canada. The two most important insights we received were, understanding the cultural sensibilities and the employment scenarios.” “I spent a significant amount of time understanding the licensure requirements in my profession in Canada and especially Ontario. I contacted the Ontario Association of Architects (OAA) and they gave me extensive guidance on the first steps. I didn’t want to wait till I got to Canada to start my licensing process, so I got my degree evaluated by the Canadian Architectural Certification Board while I was still in Qatar. This sped up my process immensely.” CIIP helped me … •Begin the licensing process while I was still outside Canada •Identify pathways to licensure and connecting with the right agencies •Help me notice the important aspects of transferable skills Arindam now works for one of Canada’s top five General Contractors.

It will ensure that everybody going to Canada becomes economically active almost as soon as they step on Canadian soil...
