We may also ask for a letter from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada stating that you are licensed in a particular specialty.
The program criteria can change at any time, but we will use what was on this website when we get your application.

If you want one, you must make sure they are a lawyer in Canada in good standing with a provincial law society or licensed by the Government of Saskatchewan. Visit Using an Immigration Representative for more information or see a list of approved immigration consultants.
