Hi,
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

As far as I know, letter from employer plays a very important role. I have seen in this forum that there are rejections due to missing employer letter. If you can't get letter from previous employer, then you can write an explantion letter with the reason for not including employer letter. But there are chances that it will be rejected, sorry to disappoint you.

did you have a worker status in Canada while you worked and you did get paid for 12 months? if yes, everything is possible.

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.
