Default CEC 1 year work anniversary question

Hi Everyone,

I am a long term admirer of this forum. I received very valuable advice and guidance. I am here one more time to seek your advice.

I am a Brit living in Toronto on IEC visa. I am aiming to apply for PR via the CEC route in early 2017. I have completed my ECA and CELPIP. My CRS is 505. I am on occupation list 0 (managerial) and profession list system analyst/manager.

The doubt I have is from when can I count my work experience.

I activated my IEC Dec 2015. I couldn't move to Toronto at the time so I went back to UK. I work for a multinational organization, I completed my UK contract in Feb 2016 and went on Canadian contract and payroll starting march 2016 (while still in uk). I moved to Canada in April 2016.

When applying for PR, from when can I start counting March or April?

Thank you in advance for reading my long question and your feedback.

Wishing you all the best festive period.

Cheers
Shenkor

Someone may correct me but I would say March as that is when you starting working for a Canadian company on their payroll.

Thank you so much. That's what I was hoping for. This means I will apply at the end of Feb 2017.

Not a correction as such but an observation. Being put on a payroll just means that. Was the company paying him and was he actually working for the company in March? If yes then I agree but if not then it would be the actual date he commenced duties in April.

Thanks Former Lancastrian.
To give more context- as I mentioned I work for multinational org. My work is not exclusively with one particular office but with approx 10 offices distributed globally. One of the office I worked with was Canada (8 years-remotely) even when I was based out of UK. I am still working the same way as in the past, but I am now based out of Toronto office. The TO office benefits from me being in the office (experience and speciality of global business knowledge of the organization)

Payroll, benefits and contract is Canadian.

Will this make a difference for CEC application?

Cheers
