What kind of jobs are eligible for the Young Professionals work permit?
The job you will do in Canada must be classified as a National Occupational Classification (NOC) Code Skill Type Level 0, A or B and C. Use the Government of Canada’s website to Find your NOC.
Additional requirements apply for NOC C jobs, i.e. intermediate jobs that usually call for high school and/or job-specific training—you must prove you have a relevant post-secondary diploma, certificate or degree in the field.
All candidates must prove that the job offer is relevant to their studies or work field. For instance, if you work as a system manager, you won’t be eligible for a Young Professionals work permit if you find a position as a baker.
Ultimately, it’s up to Government of Canada employees to assess your duties and work and decide if your job or work experience meets the “skilled” jobs criteria, i.e. NOC Skill Type 0, A or B.
