Hi,

Migrating from the UK to Canada?

Are UK degree qualificatins recognized in Canada?
Would a BSc and MSc in Computing be enough for an entry level job? ....... or would I need certifications to get an entry level job (SCJP)?

UK degrees are recognized in Canada.

The market isn't great, but I've seen IT jobs appearing again in the Careers section of the Toronto Star, for the first time in years. Canada doesn't have the equivalent of the H1B and is actually an offshoring provider, it's called "nearshoring".

There seems to be a lot of demand for "embedded processor" work requiring C skills, and of course the usual J2EE and .Net stuff.

The attitude to certificates is typically American, not much interest.
