Hello all,
I am just writing to know that next month i am going to apply under CEC.
I have two job offers with same NOC code A.
I did masters from canada and i have already finished my IELTS exam. So my questions here are following:
1. Do i need to do education credential assessment. I have a master's from canada and bachelor's from India.
2. Am i really eligible to apply under CEC because i have worked for two employers in one year term.
3. Can i apply next month or CEC is no longer accepting applications.
4. I am also confused with LMIA. I have two job offers and that are valid. So what exactly here LMIA is? My employer told me you don't need LMIA but i am not sure.

I would really appreciate for answering my questions. Thanks for lending a helping hand.

No.

2. Am i really eligible to apply under CEC because i have worked for two employers in one year term.
I don´t know if you are eligible, but you can combine two or more jobs in Canada to meet the one year requirement.

3. Can i apply next month or CEC is no longer accepting applications.
I do not know if you are eligible to apply next month, but you can certainly submit an express entry profile. A profile is not the same thing as an application. You cannot submit an application until your profile receives an Invitation to Apply (ITA). You cannot get an ITA unless (a) you are eligble for one of the programs (e.g. CEC), and (2) your "comprehensive rranking system" (CRS) Score is high enough to be included in a draw.

4. I am also confused with LMIA. I have two job offers and that are valid. So what exactly here LMIA is? My employer told me you don't need LMIA but i am not sure.
You may have a valid job offer for employment purposes or for work permit, but that is not the same thing as a valid job offer for PR purposes (to gain extra CRS points). You have to meet specific criteria to be eligible for the points for having a valid job offer.

If your job offer is LMIA-exempt, then you need to
(1) have worked for the same employer for at least one year,
(2) have a current work permit with the employer´s name on it (closed work permit), and
(3) have a written offer of FUTURE employment of at least one year after you become a permanent resident.

It sounds like you have not worked for a Canadian employer for at least one year, so you would not be eligible to claim points for having a valid job offer.


BTW it would really help if you stated what kind of work permit you currently have.

Would need to know the date you applied for the PGWP, the NOC codes, and number of hours worked per week to say if you were eligible...

To clarify about the LMIA, you do not need it to be eligible to apply. However, as you are on a PGWP, you would need an LMIA to have a valid job offer.
