Few months ago I was participating in the IEC (International Experience Canada) contest in the category of WH (Working Holiday). I got the opportunity to visit Canada at the end. However, the contest is about my job permit and 1-year visa only.
The question is:
Can I work as a web developer in Canada?
I care about two cases:
- Working as a freelancer while being in Canada;
- A company hires me for a full-time job in Canada.
- I find out that "Web developer" falls under the category of "Skill Level A". This is what I found about "Skill level A" education requirements:
These occupations require a university degree (bachelor’s, master’s or doctorate). For example, such occupations would include physicians, nurses, pharmacists, engineers, etc.
- Another place states this:
Skill Level A — professional jobs. People usually need a degree from a university for these jobs. examples: doctors, dentists, architects
- And after all:
A bachelor's degree, usually in computer science, communications or business
or Completion of a college program in computer science, graphic arts, Web design or business is required.
Experience as a computer programmer or graphic designer is usually required.
