What is the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) Program?

The Canadian Experience Class Program is a category of Canadian immigration under which temporary foreign workers in Canada may qualify for a Permanent Resident Visa in Canada.

How can I qualify under the Canadian Experience Class?

As an individual applying for Permanent Residence under the Canadian Experience Class, you must: Be a foreign worker who has accumulated a minimum of one year of full time skilled work experience in Canada within the past 36 months, and intend to settle in Canada.

Does my work experience have to be related to my education in order to be recognized

No. For international graduates, your work experience does not have to be related to your education, as long as you have accumulated the work experience after graduating from an approved Canadian post-secondary educational institution.

Am I eligible to qualify under the Canadian Experience Class even though I have already returned to my home country?

Yes, provided that you submit your application to the Canadian Immigration Visa Office within 2 years of having left your Canadian employment.

Can I still qualify for the Canadian Experience Class if I have acquired a one-year degree or certificate from an approved Canadian post-secondary educational institution?

When considering education, all candidates must have acquired at least two years of academic study in Canada and must have graduated from an approved Canadian post-secondary educational institution to qualify for the Canadian Experience Class. One year of qualifying work experience is required for CEC.

There is, however an exception to this rule. You would still be eligible for the Canadian Experience Class in the event that you have completed a one-year Master’s degree after completing another program that is one year in length and from an approved Canadian post-secondary educational institution in Ontario. Therefore, you may qualify for Ontario PNP program. The programs must be completed within two years.

Are my English or French as-a-second-language courses counted towards my education requirements under the Canadian Experience Class?

English or French-as-a-second language courses do not count toward education requirements under the Canadian Experience Class. However, if your education in Canada includes a second language component, that education can be counted provided that the second language component does not make up more than half of your course load.

Can I apply directly for permanent residence under the Canadian Experience Class?

As of January 1, 2015, candidates who are eligible under the Canadian Experience Class must make an expression of interest in immigrating to Canada permanently through the Express Entry selection system. Candidates are not able to apply directly to the program. If and when they are selected from the Express Entry pool and issued an invitation to apply, they may then submit an application for permanent residence. For further information, contact us.
