CEC) 1 year work experience from two different NOC?

  1. This is true only for foreign work experience, it is not true for Canadian work experience. If it is in-Canada work experience, more than one job / NOC can be used to meet the one-year requirement. Only the FSW program has a "continuity" requirement of 1 year.
  2. This is only true for when studying in Canada under a study permit. Graduate students in different countries are often considered full-time employees of the university; even if working only part-time, the work experience can be used to count as foreign work experience.
  3. Once you have completed at least one year of Canadian experience, yes, you would be eligible to submit a profile. Yes, you can combine the work experience gained in different NOCs to meet the one year requirement, if the experience is in-Canada experience.

    Not clear if you expect to apply under FSW or CEC. If you expect to apply under FSW, no. If you expect to apply under FSW and you just want to use this for CRS points - unclear. The ministerial instructions regarding the CRS system do not indicate a 1 year continuity requirement / single NOC for using foreign work experience to gain points - I think this means that you CAN use the experience (for CRS points only). I do not know if the profile will award points for this or not, tho.
