The Canadian Experience Class (CEC) is an immigration program that allows individuals who have worked in Canada for at least one year to immigrate permanently. CEC is a part of Canada’s Express Entry immigration system.
For Canadian Experience Class candidates there are three distinct advantages, and one possible disadvantage, under Express Entry
Have at least 12 months of Canadian work experience in NOC 0, A or B profession within the last three years.
This experience must have been obtained while on a valid work permit
Reach a minimum of Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level 7 on an approved English or French language test
A minimum of a Canadian high school diploma or the equivalent in foreign education
Applicants under the Canadian Experience Class are not required to show proof of settlement funds, as FSWC and FSTC candidates are.
