Canada Work Permit Licensing Process
There are a lot of questions about the licencing process in Canada, certain trades require a licence before you can actually work under that trade.
What if the intended occupation differs from past employment meaning if you applied under the permanent residence under the express entry route or economic routes and your occupation differs from the actual intended work experience.
If you have work experience as an accountant and you want to apply under the express entry route with a different occupation because you have a job offer as a painter and the employer is willing to employ you and he has successfully received a Positive Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA), then you definitely continue as the painter under the Express Entry route. Meaning your occupation or job offer in Canada doesn’t have to be the same as your work experience outside of Canada. But in order to be successful you must demonstrate your skill set.
Do I need to secure licensing before applying for Permanent Residence (PR)?
This is a question related to your Permanent Residence (PR). If you are a painter for example and the province you are applying for requires you to have a license then you do not need to secure that licensing prior to applying for PR. If you were a painter back home and have the work experience and like to continue in this category you may do so without securing any licensing in that particular province that you may reside in. Another example, would be engineers certain engineers require a license before they work in the field, when applying for PR you do not need to demonstrate that you actually have it
What if the intended occupation requires registration or licensing?
It is different when you ask the question what if the intended occupation requires registration or licensing. The difference here is in relation to a Work Permit if you have applied for Work Permit then the answer is yes. if you are physically working in that province based on that LMIA that has been approved, you’re going to need that licence because you’re going to tell Service Canada that you have the credentials, you have the background, you have the province licence registration to approve your LMIA application. So for a Work Permit you do need it but for a PR application you do not.
