Notes on Work Experience selection factor for the Quebec Skilled Worker Program:

  • Work experience must have been accumulated during the five years preceding the application date in an occupation with a TEER category above "5" as defined by the National Occupational Classification (NOC).
  • Work experience includes paid employment on part-time or full-time basis. Work experience acquired during an internship (paid or unpaid) may be counted towards the work experience requirement if the training leads to a diploma being granted.
