Federal Skilled Workers

Must you work experience be accumulated continuously on a full-time basis?

It is required that you have at least a minimum of one year full-time continuous work experience within a profession that is at a skill level that is recognized by Citizenship and Immigration Canada. Your work experience can also be equivalent to the full-time hours but completed in terms of part-time, as long as it is accumulated, this may take you twice the time to gain the required amount of experience but it can be done.

An example of this would be:

A standard full time week is equal to 37.5 hours. So if you are working a part-time position for approximately 20 hours per week, this will be counted and considered to be approximately one year of full-time experience.

What if you don’t have an Arranged Employment?

If you don’t have an Arranged Employment, it’s okay! You will still be required to have a minimum of one year work experience in order to qualify under the Skilled Worker Category.

There is also provinces and territories within Canada that have their own specific requirements under the several different Provincial Nomination Programs that may be beneficial to you.

What is the purpose of Arranged Employment?

Arranged employment is set out to do the following:

  • It will make you eligible and qualified even if you are not on the priority list
  • It will support you for Permanent Residency- which will speed up the process of immigration
  • It will give you and/or the skilled worker an extra 10 points that will go towards the score or arranged employment
  • It will allow you to waive the requirements in regards to finances for a Permanent Resident application- There will be no proof that will be required for funds

What are the requirements for Arranged Employment?

There are several requirements of Arranged Employment and they are:

  • That the position must be a permanent and full time one- seasonal work does not count
  • The position must be a skill type 0 which is known as Managerial Occupations, or skill level A which is known as a Professional Occupation or, B which is known as a Technical Occupation, and;
  • The wages and the working conditions should be the same when they are compared to positions that are offered to the citizens and permanent residents of Canada that are working within the same company
