How to Immigrate to Canada as a Manufacturing Engineer
The first stage in your Canadian immigration process is to calculate your Canada Immigration points for Express Entry using the Canadian Comprehensive Ranking System.
CRS Points are awarded for (amongst other things)
Your partner’s skills
As well as providing you with important CRS points these factors also count towards your overall Immigration Points score which must equal or exceed a total of 67
Once you receive an ITA (Invitation to apply) from Canadian Immigration as a result of your Express Entry application you’ll only have 60 days in which to lodge a formal application so under no circumstances should you lodge an Express Entry application ‘claiming’ to have certain points without first having all of your points verified through different testing, education equivalence certificates and Professional Qualification assessments.
Once you are invited to apply for your Canada Visa you cannot go back and have these things verified retrospectively, they must be done before you claim any points for them and given that your express entry profile is only valid for one year it makes sense to present the best possible case right from the start.
Manufacturing Engineering Skills and Qualification Equivalence Assessment
The process of getting your Manufacturing Engineering skills, experience and qualifications verified is called Skills and Qualification Assessment and it serves two purposes.
1: To claim the requisite points on both the Express Entry CRS and eventual Federal Skilled Trades application.
2: Used for your relevant professional registrations so having your Manufacturing Engineering skills is assessed.

As part of your immigration process, your dedicated Manufacturing Engineer Canada account manager will arrange for your Professional Qualification equivalency process so there’s no need to worry about how to move to Canada; we’ll have you covered from the moment you get the ball rolling.
Can I immigrate to Canada as a Manufacturing Engineer without a job offer?
The answer is a resounding yes, providing you have a reasonable total CRS score on your Express Entry application. More so if you can meet the 67 immigration point threshold for your Canada Federal Skilled Worker Visa.
Technically there is no minimum CRS score required to submit a Manufacturing Engineer Canada Express Entry profile.
Of course, securing a job offer will give you an instant CRS boost of 600 points so it makes sense to start this process as soon as is practical.
