UCI stands for “unique client identifier.” It is also known as a client identification number (client ID). It’s on official documents you receive from IRCC.
It has either:

  • four numbers, a hyphen and four more numbers (Example: 0000-0000), or
  • two numbers, a hyphen, four numbers, a hyphen and four more numbers (Example: 00-0000-0000)

You will not have a UCI number yet if you are applying to IRCC for the first time.

New Canadians face struggles trying to establish a career in Canada. They often leave very successful careers in their home country, only to arrive to realize they are not qualified to work in their field of specialty. This session will highlight resources available to newcomers on growing their career. Guest speakers will share their stories, success and provide insight to participants. This program will be presented by Brampton Library in partnership with the BMC - Brampton Multicultural Community Centre.

And if you follow the steps in the following article, chances are they will hire you.

Vaisakhi is the beginning of the Sikh New Year and the first day of the month is usually celebrated on April 13th or 14th. It was an established harvest festival, even before it's religious dimensions. But it also celebrates 1699, the year Sikhism was born as a collective faith.
