I went to Canada on intra company transfer and worked in Canada from August 2011 to December 2012. Later I came back to India and resigned from organization and I'm working for other organization.
Now I'm planning to apply for PR in CEC but I don't have reference and when I'm trying to get the letter they are not issuing. In meantime I'm able to get reference letter from the client where I worked.
Is it fine if I apply PR on client reference letter.
Thanks for any advice
The client reference letter is very important, if your work place was different from your employer's. This is because the client (Canadian) can attest to the job duties you actually performed, and hours worked per week, so it provides support for the skilled work experience.
It cannot replace an employer reference letter, tho, because the client did not pay your salary, so you also need the employer reference letter.
If you ALSO have the client letter, you might
be able to get away with not having the employer letter IF you can submit alternative documentation (e.g. contract, letter written to obtain work permit, etc.). You should include a written explanation of what you did to try and get a letter from your former employer, as well as their response.
