Skilled work experience means that you’ve worked in 1 of these National Occupational Classification (NOC) job groups:

  • Managerial jobs (skill type 0)
  • Professional jobs (skill level A)
  • Technical jobs and skilled trades (skill level B)

You must show that while working in your primary occupation, you performed the duties set out in the lead statement of the occupational description in the NOC. This includes all the essential duties and most of the main duties listed.

Your skilled work experience must be

  • in the same type of job (have the same NOC) as the job you want to use for your immigration application (called your primary occupation)
  • within the last 10 years
  • paid work (have been paid wages or earned commission—volunteer work or unpaid internships don’t count)
  • at least 1 year of continuous work or 1,560 hours total (30 hours per week)—you can meet this in a few different ways:
    1. full-time at 1 job: 30 hours/week for 12 months = 1 year full-time (1,560 hours)
    2. equal amount in part-time work: for example 15 hours/week for 24 months = 1 year full time (1,560 hours)
    3. You can work as many part-time jobs as you need to meet this requirement
    4. full-time at more than 1 job: 30 hours/week for 12 months at more than 1 job = 1 year full time (1,560 hours)

Free Canada work permit:

Canada operates the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) and the International Mobility Program (IMP).

The difference between the two programs is the TFWP requires a labour market test, known as the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).

There are two types of work permit programs in Canada:

  • Temporary Foreign Worker Program: A Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) is required for a foreign national to obtain a work permit
  • International Mobility Program: An LMIA is not required for a foreign national to obtain a work permit

You can get a Canada work permit Here.
