Q. Could anybody tell me why Police Officers are on the list of eligible occupations when
my husband has been told he will have to re-train from scratch in Canada.
What is the point in meeting all the performed duties on the NOC if they
don’t count when he applies to get in the Canadian Police?

Answer: The premise of the current Regulations is to admit persons who have certain attributes that make them likely to successfully settle in Canada. The application is no longer based on a specified intended occupation, and it is not necessarily expected that all applicants must pursue employment in the field of their prior experience. It is, however, expected that those applicants that are successful will be able to readily find suitable employment in Canada.
