Subject: Reference letters compulsory? -- Sharon, pl help
  I am planning to submit my application for skilled worker from India. I have have the following questions:

1) Are reference letters compulsory? CIC does not say so but visa office forms apparently say so though not directly. I already have appointment letters, relieving letters and experience certificates of my previous organizations. Also I am unable to get reference letters on letterheads. Please let me know if thats fine

2) Do the PR card need to be notarised in Canada? My uncle has taken PR in Canada but will move to Canada after 1 year.
3) Can shares be considered for funds?
Thanks

Does the appointment letter state your job responsibilities in detail? If not you should get a reference letter. The letter can also be taken from a co-worker if your boss or the HR department is not willing to give such a letter. If nothing works out provide the evidence you have and write an explanation letter as to why you were unable to get reference letter.

2) Do the PR card need to be notarised in Canada? My uncle has taken PR in Canada but will move to Canada after 1 year.

Documents can be notarized anywhere.

Rakesh:

Unfortunately you are from India and your case will look rather suspiciously if you don´t attatch experience letter. Why is this?

If this is from single employer and you can give a valid reason for not doing so; it may be OK - but the reason will have to be valid. And even then you must instead submit your paystubs and income tax return forms.

However, if it is from multiple employers? Forget it man... CIC is going to see it very suspiciously. You would have to be highly skilled to go through that net...

PR Card copy is sufficient. It does not need to be notorized.

Yes; stock are a valid form of asset. However; these will have to be in your name and current.

Employer not willing to provide a reference (in reply to: Reference letters compulsory? -- Sharon, pl help)
Hi Sharon,

I am a claims adjuster, been in the industry for 9 years my former employer was downsizing for which I was let go... and others as well. I have interviews coming up and they are asking why is my former employer not willing top provide a referenc? I inquired this question to my former employer directly over the phone.. they indicated that it was against their company policy? What should I do?
