Provincial flags in a breeze

Q. Does part-time volunteer count as the “working experience” in the PR immigration application?

Answer: There is nothing in the Regulations which bars the assessment of unpaid work experience in the evaluation of a candidate’s qualifications. Such experience, as with any other experience, must be consistent with the applicable definitions, and the applicant should meet the minimum requirements set forth in the NOC.
