One of the most difficult aspects of the immigration process is the interview. However, the interview doesn’t have to be as challenging if you’re prepared for it. Remember that the interview is designed to verify your personal details. You’ll also be tested about your knowledge of Canada if you plan to move to Toronto. Passing the interview is essential to your immigration, and it will likely make you nervous. However, you’ll be less stressed about the interview and will answer the questions accurately.
When you’re getting ready for your interview, make sure you have all the necessary documentation. Before you get to the interview site, ensure that you have all the paperwork you need and that it’s filled out correctly. Get the location of the interview and arrive early. If you have to rush to get your interview, you’re likely to be flustered and may not be able to think through the answers to the interview questions.
It’s also very important that you communicate thoroughly during the interview. Listen to all the questions carefully. If you don’t understand a question, ask the interviewer to repeat it. Speak clearly when you respond so that the interviewer can understand you.
You should also be dressed appropriately for your interview. This helps you make a good impression. Your interviewer will see how you’re dressed even before you start speaking. Your clothes should be neat and ironed and you should dress as though you’re going to a job interview. The way you dress indicates how much you value the interview, and the person asking you questions will judge how important you feel the interview is by the way you present yourself.
You can also prepare for your immigration interview by thinking about the questions you may be asked. Review the information in your immigration application and think about the reasons you want to move to Canada and the challenges you may face as a Canadian resident. You should also research information and history about Canada, since this will be part of your interview as well.
Here are some of the questions you’ll be expected to answer during your immigration interview:
What are your reasons for moving to Canada?
Tell the interviewer about why you want to come to Toronto. Explain that you’re coming to the city for a new job or want to attend school in Canada. If you already have relatives or close friends in Canada, you can mention this if you’ll be staying with them temporarily or will rely on them for your social network.
Did someone help you with your application?
Be honest with your interviewer about whether you had the help of an immigration consultant to fill out your paperwork. If you went through the process alone or had a relative help you, be honest.
What religion are you/what are your religious views?
The interviewer will ask this to get more information on you and what your morals are to determine whether you will be a threat to others who live in Canada. You’ll also be asked about this to determine which religious organizations you’ll be affiliated with when you’re a Toronto resident.
