With a tie-breaking rule applied by IRCC in the Express Entry, Canada immigration hopefuls that received invitations in the latest federal IRCC draw were those –  eligible for the CEC,  with a minimum CRS of 368, and  that had created their profile before the tie-break applied.
|The CEC is for skilled workers that have Canadian work experience and intend taking up Canadian permanent residence.|
Here, towards the calculation of the work experience acquired in Canada, the candidate must have a minimum of 1 year’s skilled work experience in Canada in the previous 3 years before applying to IRCC Express Entry.
The work experience can be either –
- full-time at 1 job only,
- full-time at more than 1 jobs, or
- cumulative work experience that includes an equal amount in part-time work.
The total work experience in Canada must be for 1,560 hours. For anyone working full-time at 1 job that would mean 30 hours’ work in a week for 12 months.
Do keep in mind that any work above 30 hours a week will not be considered by IRCC.
As per IRCC, an individual will be ineligible for the CEC if their work experience in Canada had been got –
- while working without due authorization for the same, or
- without a valid temporary resident status in Canada.
Self-employment will not be considered for meeting the work experience requirements for the CEC.
