    Posted: 19 Aug 2018 at 9:21pm

I have an offer as an independent professional under CETA for 2 years from a Canadian company. I am also in the express entry pool with a CRS of 422 with limited options to further increase the score.
If I accept the offer I should be granted an LMIA exempt work permit valid for 1 year with the possibility of extension. I have the following questions :

1) How long will the WP application last for CETA independent professionals (I will apply from Canada)?

2) Does the year spent working as a contractor for a Canadian company counts as Canadian work experience in the CRS and I can get the 35 additional points? 

3) After the first year, a written offer from the same employer counts as a valid job offer in the pool (if my work permit is extended of course)?

Thank you.
