Hi

My brother is an Australian citizen and currently in Melbourne and I live in Mississauga ON

I wanted to ask the senior members that my brother would like to come and work here in Toronto on an open work permit, he is a Massage Therapist. If he gets an open work permit, can his Canadian work experience be counted towards permanent residency if he plans to apply for immigration to Canada, and also can an IEC (international experience class) be counted as Canadian experience and be applicable for Canadian immigration

Thanks in advance
Muhammad Soofian

He can't just get an open work permit. If he qualifies for IEC, he can apply. The work experience would count.

Note that massage therapy is generally quite regulated in Canada, so he will likely have to go through accreditation and possibly testing that could take quite some time.

thanks for ur reply , so on IEC he can also find other type of work too , yes he will be processing his accreditation too before coming here and sit the exam here as he wants to apply for immigration to Canada too. He wants to come here and see if moving to Canada is a good option or not

Thanks again
