Hello,

I sent my CEC application last month but now there are few questions I have.
Quick background about me: I graduated from McGill University and have been working in Quebec with my PGWP. Since I need to reside outside of Quebec with my PR application, I am moving to Ontario by the end of this month while working remotely. However, I do not want to quit my job due to the current job market. Please note that I have been applying to jobs in Ontario but no luck so far.

Will my remote work from Ontario for the Quebec employer result in the refusal of my PR application or cause trouble during the citizenship process in the future?
Also, my employer cannot transfer me to another branch outside of Quebec so that wouldn't be an option...

Thank you in advance.

It seems ok remotely as long as its canadian experience within Canada also as long as you have one year experience meeting your exact job description
