Will local big 4 audit experience be valuable in another country?

I'm currently an audit senior 2 in one of the big 4 firms in Singapore. I plan to apply for a similar role in the big 4 or other smaller audit firms in Canada when I get my visa next year. Do you guys think my experience would be valuable to them? I'm an ICAEW member [CPA equivalent in the UK] and hence should have no problems in becoming a CPA in Canada.

I will probably be leaving my firm as senior 2 this year as well due to personal issues. Any help is highly appreciated, thanks!

Official qualifications normally go through a service like WES before you apply for the visa. If you received a visa without qualifying first then you'd have to see how the private market accepts that certification.

While Canada is a great country for expats, they are not always the best or easiest in recognizing international degrees, experience or qualifications.
