Each immigration program has its own rules and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) is no exception, and although seemingly simple it has its complications. To qualify under the CEC, the candidate must work in Canada for at least one (01) year in a qualified job (NOC 0, A, or B) and meet a level of English or French between 5 and 7 in the Canadian standard depending on the job classification (NOC) to which your job corresponds.
Free trade agreements
As a result of a positive LMIA (Labour Market Impact Assessment)
Under the postgraduate work permit program
As a dependent of an international student or a skilled worker
Under the International Experience program (Working Holiday)
But what does have a direct impact on the CEC and that can disqualify the person from obtaining permanent residence are the conditions of each type of permit and even more so the work that he performs.
Those who arrived in Canada with a work permit obtained under an LMIA, have to demonstrate at the time of application for residency that they worked with the employer who brought them, that they paid the salary reported in the LMIA, that they worked the number of hours stipulated in the LMIA, who performed the functions stated in the LMIA and who worked at the site specified in the LMIA.
In other words, if the LMIA said that the person came to develop software, in Toronto, with a salary of $ 35.10 an hour and working 40 hours per week, this has to be shown documentation - T4, employment reference letter, and in some cases, lease of the site where the company operates and emails or work orders to prove the functions performed.
