Post Moved: skilled worker-category specific or not

Is it possible to apply for a job in a different category to the one we applied in as a skilled worker.

After arriving with PR status - yes

Before getting PR status - yes, but you'll need to prove experience in that job in order to be granted LMO

I've been through the whole LMO process - but my job was in the same NOC code as SW application. You can definitely apply for jobs outside your SW NOC code, but you're going to have trouble proving experience necessary to get LMO.

Give us a few more details - what jobs are we talking about, what part of canada, and how far down SW application are you??

I have approximately 2 years to go before they look at my application. My job is Depot Supervisor for a Concrete batching depot, however my background is as a Joiner, which because of what i do out side of work i am basically Jack of all trades. The only way i can prove of my ability is through references for work i have done for peaple and demonstrate the building works i have done to my homes i have renovated. The other option for me is that i have a class one licence for Heavy goods vehicles, the downside is that you can spend 20 plus days out on the road in Canada/USA routes 2 nights a week would be fine ,but we are supposed to be going for a better way of life and spending time with the wife and kids is a must. Plus to top it all we want to live in Ontario, unfortunately they dont have much call for peaple in my industry and getting a job offer is almost immpossible because of this. Said that i am sure there is a job waiting for me, its just a case of keep on looking.
