Changing Employer MPNP

Apr 27, 2022

Hi all,

Got my MPNP nomination 2 months ago and have already applied for Express Entry PNP Stream. I was wondering if I can change my employer if the new one pay me higher wages? However, the new job will be NOC C with a different occupation than my current employer(NOC 0) which supported me for my MPNP Skilled Worker application.

Thanks in advance.

I assume you applied through the skilled worker stream. If so, a change like this isn't possible and will result in your PR being refused.

Yes, I applied under skilled worker stream. i spoke to an MPNP officer today, over the phone, he said we have no issues as long as you have a valid reason to switch employers. He wasn’t sure about my express entry file though. If my nomination remains valid then I don’t think IRCC will object anything

You want to change employers for a higher wage, even though the one paying you a lower wage is helping you get Canadian permanent residency?

Yes, why not? It's not that I begged them to help me, I worked there day and night. You have to move on for your future. Plus, my current employer is not dependent on me. Here, people get replaced within days.

You're bold! I feel like if someone helped me with PR I owe them but that's jut me, I work in a job where I'm on 50% of the salary I had back in my home country, but they're supporting my PR. And when Canadian citizenship has so much more value than merely money, I felt I should stick it out but each to their own.

The main issue I see here is that OP will be dropping from a NOC 0 role to a NOC C role. Not sure that will be accepted once IRCC starts the Express Entry processing portion.

Wouldn't be an issue once he meets the minimum requirements.
