Canada Experience Class Immigration: Are T4 slips really necessary?
I'm planning to apply for Immigration under the CEC from outside of Canada.
I have a 2year college diploma, and 2year work experience in ON.
So it seems like I qualify... except one thing...
My previous work did not issue T4 slips. But T4 slips were on "document checklist" ....Do I absolutely have to have T4 slips?
Or is there anything I can use as a substitute??
Thanks A.J. :)
I did make more than $500 for sure.
but my ex-employer doesn't issue T4 slips to any employees. I guess I was freelance in point of tax....
Then, I'm not sure if freelance (self-employment?) could be considered as a full-time.
I'd love to call CIC myself and ask questions, but I cannot find #s I can reach outside of Canada... I called Canadian Embassy in my country but they don't help me at all...
Please let me know if you have a good idea!

All employers in Canada are legally required to provide T4 slips unless you made less than $500 annually.
Your employer should have filed on directly with CCRA also, so you should be able to call CCRA and get a copy. Your employer should also be able to send you one.
If you can't get one, call CEC and ask them this question. I would have to assume it's pretty rare for someone to have worked in Canada for 2 years and not get a T4, so you would need to check with them directly.
