OK, but according to your first post, you worked on IEC from July 2013 to June 2015 - that's not two full years? "- I activated my IEC in July 2013, I left the country in June 2015"

If you're scoring 489 then you're laughing and can apply now surely? Or even 464 if it's one year's work experience? That's more than you originally said, I haven't checked your answers to see what's changed but if you're sure about that score then I'd get a wiggle on and apply asap!

That's my score if my BTEC is eligible as one years post secondary. I am going to apply for the ECA Monday, we'll see what they come back with!

And you are right, it was 23 months, not quite 2 years (although the company did keep me on as a remote worker until September...). I think I'll rather not risk it and put down 1 year, as it still garners me enough points if I can get the points for education.

Remote working doesn't count, only work experience actually in Canada counts, so 23 months would be 1 year as only full years count. But as you say, you may have enough anyway - fingers very tightly crossed!

Got home from work and thought "screw it" so I've applied via WES for an ECA. I'll let you know in a month or so how it goes

Good for you! Fingers crossed for the next month then (it'll be awfully hard working and cooking dinner for the kids with them crossed, but hey ).

Budget for a couple of months. As with most Canadian businesses, their quoted timescales mean very little unfortunately, at least if my experience of them was anything to go by.
