Default Exam waiver information: CAS, CIC or SOA?

Hello everyone,

I am a candidate writing from India. I am a member of Institute of actuaries of India. I have cleared three papers:

CT1 - Financial Mathematics
CT3 - Probability and Mathematical Statistics
CT7 - Economics

I will be moving to Canada soon. I look forward to work in the actuarial profession in Canada.
I want to know that which is the best society to get exemption for my papers.

I will be really glad if you can help me with this.

If you are moving to Canada, you will need to be recognized by the CIA, so I'd look there.

CT1 and CT3 get you credit for Exams 1 and 2 for the CAS.

Welcome to Canada! Are you on the Life & Health side or the Property & Casualty side?

I contacted CIA. But they don't recognize exams from IAI. Nor does SOA.
CAS is the only one who can provide waiver for my exams.
I want to know is it any worth in Canada? or I should start from the scrath from CIA?

The UK exam system also recognizes the Indian exams. Although they are changing the structure for next year.
