When you say subs list, are we talking about long term subbing or just a sub on call? some days they work and some days they don't.

On call I would think. Never heard of a full time sub in BC.

Long term subbing comes off of the TOC list (Teacher on Call), usually based on seniority (yes, even on TOC there is seniority).

Subs regardless of short or long term come off the daily contact list.

That cost is a bit disingenuous. Theres really only a couple costs and the lion share of the total is the application fee (CAN$395) the rest is the IELTS exam (about USD$225) and the translation of a few documents (your Uni transcript, secondary diploma and identification document).

Plus WES evaluation 200$, sending the transcripts 50-80$, and the other translations you mentioned so it will end up being $1000

$50-$80 for sending transcripts, thats grossly unrealistic, who are you using for mail, Santas off duty reindeer? WES isnt required for the BC credential, its part of the immigration scheme to get your points for a visa. Yes is you want to combine credentialing costs and immigration costs then sure its USD$1000+.

Check Fedex and Dhl mailing costs from Europe to Canada.

I've just had three transcripts sent between provinces and one from the UK sent to the same place. Total cost including mailing - CAD$45.

I have, and? If youre sending the transcripts (and its not your Uni sending them directly), why would you use DHL or FedEx, just send it post. If you want to inflate your costs by overpaying with extravagances thats your choice but thats selected costs not required costs.
