Canadian Experience Class (CEC) is an immigration program for people who have worked in Canada and want to transition to permanent residence. CEC is one of three programs managed under Canada’s Express Entry Immigration System. Admission Hub provides you with everything you need to knows about the CEC.
If you are eligible for the CEC program or one of the other Express Entry programs, you will get a score based on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). The CRS awards point based on skilled work experience, education, age, official language skills, and other factors.
IRCC holds regular rounds of invitation, issuing Invitations to Apply for permanent residence to the highest-scoring candidates.
After you submit, an IRCC immigration officer will make a decision on your application. If you are approved, the last step is to complete the landing process and officially immigrate to Canada.
The CEC program is encouraging more temporary foreign workers and international students to build their life in Canada. Skilled workers and international students can:
One year (or 12 months) of work experience is defined as at least 1,560 hours of skilled work in Canada. The 1,560 hours can be obtained through full-time and/or part-time work.
Applicants can remain in Canada throughout the application process. However, the Canadian Experience Class is also open to individuals who are no longer in Canada, provided that they submit their application within three years of leaving their job in Canada.
The Canadian Experience Class requirements are based on a pass or fail model. If the minimum requirements are met, the applicant is eligible to enter the Express Entry pool.
Note: Self-employment and work experience gained while you were a full-time student (for example, on a co-op work term) does not count under the CEC.
International students who go on to graduate from an eligible educational program in Canada are the main group of individuals who gain permanent residence through the CEC. Here is the most common way:
Temporary foreign workers can become eligible for the Canadian Experience Class program after obtaining one year of professional work experience in Canada. Here is step-by-step how to become a permanent residence as a temporary foreign worker:
