Understanding A Valid Job Offer For Canada Express Entry!

valid job offer

Job offer is highly valued when it comes to immigrating to Canada. Several programs, such as the PNPs, mostly depend on job offers. Additionally, a valid job offer can get you 50 to 200 additional CRS points in Express Entry. However, the lesser-known fact is that a fraudulent or fake job offer can deem you inadmissible to Canada. And, this can put a ban of five years. This article will help you understand and identify a valid job offer. 

What is a valid job offer in Canada?

 A job offer under the Federal Skilled Worker or the Canadian Experience Class is considered valid if it is: made by an employer, is full-time (30h/week), non-seasonal, and in NOC A, B, or 0. Moreover, to get arranged employment points for permanent residency, you must meet one of the three criteria: 

  • Your employer must have a positive LMIA that approves your offer, names you as the employee under the specific NOC A, B, or 0 jobs. Certain fraudulent employer or consultants deceive applicants with neutral or negative LMIA; “OR”
  • If you are working in Canada on an LMIA based NOC A, B, or 0 jobs, your employer must offer to continue to hire you for at least one year after permanent residency; “OR” 
  • If you are on a LMIA exempt but employer-specific work permit working in NOC A, B, or 0 jobs and have:
    • One year of experience working under the same employer, and
    • Your employer continues to employ you after permanent residency for at least one year.  
How to identify a valid job offer? 
  • Do not make recruitment-related payments to any immigration representative, consultant, or anyone promising employment.
  • Do not trust a verbal job offer, especially for immigration purposes, for which you will need an offer letter containing your employment details. 
  • Research the company, you can check the company’s website, online reviews, and the Canadian Business Registry or Provincial Business Registry to verify the company.  
  • Do not share your details, such as your home address or SIN number. Your SIN number is required after getting hired.
  • Review necessary details and supporting documents in a job offer, including:
    • Offer letter on the company’s letterhead.  
    • The offer letter includes details such as working hours, pay, responsibilities, and location. 
    • The LMIA or registration “A” number under the International Mobility Program.

Remember that a fraudulent job offer is considered “misrepresentation.” It will not only result in application refusal but will also forbid entering Canada for five years. Moreover, place you on a permanent record for fraud and can take away your permanent resident or Canadian citizen status.
