Subject: Right time to apply for FSW under AE?
  Hello:

I am a regular visitor to this website. I am currently working full time under my 1 year Post Graduate work permit. My employer is willing to get an Arrangement Employment Opinion (AEO) from HRDC and is ready to offer me a indeterminate job offer.

My question is - should I wait for the amendments to FSW application procedure as I understand that all the FSW applications are currently on hold?
Or will the new changes not affect me. And I should go ahead with my employer and get an AEO and file for immigration?

Thank you.

Will you be applying under federal or PNP. If PNP, Iw ould suggest you do it right away. The list wont effect PNP applicants.

Even with federal, if you have a job offer you should be ok, however, I am not completely sure on that.

My employer do not qualify for Ontario PNP as the gross revenues are less than $1 mn.

So, I will have to go for Federal Skilled Worker Class.
I heard that along with the new occupation list, the changes to Bill C-50 includes the changes in the procedure, requirements and processing times for all categories of immigration application. If this is true, will it affect how CIC will process FSW with AE applications?

I dont know the answer to that, maybe someone else can answer that.

However, you may also have an option to apply for CEC:

To apply under CEC, I need 2 years of work experience.
So, CEC is out of the question as i just started working.

Can you suggest me any PNP except for Ontario. I am looking at SK and MB right now. I think we need 6 months of work experience there before applying for PNP.

Have you not completed 2 years of studies in Canada?

Since I dont know your personal situation, its best of you read through the information on CIC´s website and find out the best program for you.

Joey, did you study in Canada? If so, I believe that 2 years study and 1 year´s employment qualifies you to apply under the CEC class. If this is the case, then this is the easiest and quickest option for you. If I am not correct, then it is 2 years study and 2 years work, but I am sure I have read somewhere that if you study 2 years and work for 1 on a post-grad work permit then you can qualify. CIC will have all the info you need.

Karen,

You are correct, it seems that Joey has not studied for 2 years in Canada.

No. I havent studied for two years in Canada.
I studied for 3 semesters and received a 1 year work permit.

So, what is the best approach to get immigration? i understand that I will have to work with my current employer (in Toronto) for 2 years to qualify under CEC.
I want to know about FSW with AEO? Is that better than to wait for two years for CEC?
