Default Employment Status

Hi,

I'm applying for PR to canada as a skilled worker and am currently filling out the forms.

I will be applying as an industrial electrician-Noc 7242 with 3 yrs experiance, i started working as an electrician in 2006 and was made redundant in november 2009, and currently i am unemployed which i have stated on the Schedule 1 form, question 11-personal history. will me currently being unemployed have an effect on my application?

hope the above make sense!
thanks

Remember that most people in Canada are still asleep now, so the forum won't normally get busy until afternoon UK time.

Anyway, no you being unemployed won't have an effect on it. As long as you have one years experience as an electrician in the past 10 years, it makes no difference what you are currently doing. Assuming you meet the other criteria (points score, pass the medical, proof of funds, no criminal record etc) then you should be fine.

Good luck.

May not make a difference for PR, but for his licence here in canada he will need to have 9000hrs to be able to sit the test...........

9000hours or you can do the third and fourth year of your apprenticeship in canada, you can challenge the first two years if you have less that 9000hours experience, which im going to have to do, as soon as i can get arranged empoyment so if you get there and find a job and im still looking for a job you can set me up arranged employment as a third year apprentice

apprentice wages do suck i have noticed, but they suck no matter which country your in. looks like if stuck in the uk for another few years to get them 9000 hours, if its possible for me to ever get a job over here again. but i would rather be in vancouver tbh.
