Express Entry – Canadian Experience Class (CEC)

The Canadian Experience Class (CEC) is a permanent resident category for individuals with Canadian skilled work experience. It was developed for foreign/international graduates and temporary foreign workers with qualifying Canadian work experience.

The Canadian Experience Class makes it easier and more convenient for international students to apply for permanent resident status in Canada. If you have graduated from a post-secondary program at an eligible Canadian educational institution, you may be eligible to apply.

To qualify under the Canadian Experience Class, the candidate must:
• Have at least 12 months of full time (or equivalent in part-time) skilled work experience in Canada with the proper authorization in the 3 years before they apply. The work experience must be in a managerial (Skill type 0), professional (Skill Level A), and technical or trade (Skill Level B).
• Meet the required language levels needed for the job for each language ability (speaking, reading, writing, and comprehension)

As of January 2015, potential candidates interested in applying to the Canadian Experience Class must go through the Express Entry system.
