So far proposed rules state that Canadian experience must be obtained after graduation, if one wants to use 2-years education and 1-year experience rule.

Co-Op (depending how it is set up) was rarely counted as work experience as it usually is part of education program. And it is not full time anyway as it is alternated with classes.
Thanks Andrew for all the info. I just want to know why does the work experience have to be obtained after graduation? If the work done was full-time, paid, for more than a stretch of 12 months, and fits in the NOC Levels of 0, A and B, shouldnt it be equally credible as work done after graduation? Has this been proposed to the cabinet so far?

If the rules are finalised as stated, a lot of international students who have worked hard to secure top notch internship jobs and contributed to the canadian economy will be at a disadvantage and those that have simply obtained a degree without similar achievements and been lucky enough to get hired after graduation will go through. This simply seems unfair. What do you think?

Hi Andrew,

I need your suggestion.

I have PGWP as well as the LMO.... and I qualify under both SW and CEC(with its current requirements) classes.

Which way should I be selecting, should I wait for CEC or go with SW class now?

Actually I am trying to ignore any US visits for Interview and I do not want to give the IELTS test again ....so should I wait for CEC?

Please also let me know if you have any update on CEC (when they will gonna implement this class).

Thanks in advance....

Still a lot of people who meet CEC requirements will select CEC route over SW with arranged employment or PNP route for various reasons, despite stiff requirements.
I thought on the report from last yr it says the target range from CEC route is 10000-12000. am i wrong about this?

Same with those who cannot extend their work permits anymore but want to apply (better late than never) for PR now.

I don't see a problem with filling up the quota, providing of course that CEC is implemented well before Summer ends.
ME!!!!CEC ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!

I just received a CIC email invitation for input/suggestions about proposed CEC regulations that were published on August 9th. The consultation period is 15 days from that date.

Thus don't take anything for granted yet, at least until final version of Regulations is registered and published.

Hi Andrew,do you know the exact date CIC publishes their final version of regulation. Diane Finley is making an announcement tomorrow in Waterloo. Is she going to disclose implementation dates and other details?

Timu, when the final regs come out from CIC they will be published in the Canada Gazette which publishes new Regulations now in force in the section called PART II which is published on every other Wednesday. So keep your eye on the Part II editions of the Canada Gazette. The ones we just read were in Part I which is for proposed regulations so that people can read them and contribute comments.

You will never get "a clear view" about anything from a politician.
