Freelancing + Express Entry

Hi all,

I’m a freelancer Product Manager. I’m associated with a startup (full-time) in SF bay area and been working with them since last 2+ years. We are relocating to Canada next month. I’m planning to continue my freelancing job from Canada. I would like to know whether my freelancing work experience can be counted in as valid Canadian work experience for Express Entry program.

Any personal experience or pointers will help.


Perhaps not related to your question directly. But I have a question for you . How do you plan up handle taxes when freelancing for a US company from canada . Also how do you intend to get paid from them, directly via check or via a 3rd party middlemen company ?
