Canada, 20th November: Canada Experience Class Applications refusal may be due to many reasons.
Let us see these reasons in detail here for the benefits of Canada Experience Class Applicants and aspiring applicants.
Canada Experience Class—Canada Experience Class happens to be a highly favorite immigration route for foreigners wanting to become Canada permanent residents. However, for this, foreigners need to possess Canada work experience while being on a Canada temporary work permit.
So, Canada government offers immigration to skilled foreign workers through Canada Experience Class program.
<blockquote> Canada Experience Class applications may get refused due to varied reasons. </blockquote>
Eligibility requirements for Canada Experience Class—
- Applicants must have a minimum of one year of technical work experience, skilled or professional work experience in Canada within a period of 36 months of the date of application;
- They must have surpassed or cleared a Canada language Benchmark threshold of 5 or 7 based on the job level;
- They must be willing to live and work outside Province of Quebec(those wanting to live in Quebec need to apply under Quebec Experience Class).
Applicants should have worked in any of the following capacities in Canada—
- On an open work permit under an international exchange program; or
- On an open work permit as the spouse of a partner who has worked in Canada; or
- In an LMIA(Labor Market Impact Assessment)-exempt category; or
- Have received a positive LMIA; or
- On a post-graduate work permit, and finished full-time studies in Canada’s designated institute.
Reasons for refusal under Canada Experience Class Program—
- Discrepancies in NOC Code—Applicants under Canada Experience Class need to present a NOC code to CIC(Citizenship and Immigration Canada) for each skilled occupation held by the applicant in his or her career. NOC code includes duties’ list that are typical for anyone working in the given position.
Meanwhile, it may happen that after getting a positive LMIA with a specific NOC code, an individual may end up working in a role that reflects duties of another NOC code. This can lead to refusal.
Another reason—no precise match of documents—Supporting documents submitted by the applicant under Canadian Experience Class related to work experience(resume, work reference letters from current and previous employers, positive LMIA, taxation papers etc.) may not match precisely.
For example, work reference letters may not be giving clear description of duties correlating with job description set by Canada immigration department CIC. This could lead to rejection of application.
