How to apply for Canadian Experience Class

The Canadian Experience Class is an immigration program made to assist temporary foreign employees and international students to apply for permanent residence as per their work experience and training. This program facilitates the transition from interim to permanent status by taking into consideration the time spent in Canada by an international student or skilled worker contributing to Canadian society.

Express Entry

The Canadian Experience Class is one of three economic programs available through the online Express Entry system. The Express Entry pool oversees permanent residence applications for migrants who can fill positions when qualified Canadian employees are in short supply.

Canadian Experience Class Requirements

The Canadian Experience Class Requirements that must be met in order to be eligible for CEC are as follows.

  • Be in Canada during the 36 months preceding the filing of the computerized Application for Permanent Residence (eAPR).
  • Your job tasks in Canada are classified as NOC Code Skill Level 0, A, or B.
  • Work experience in Canada must be legal and for a fee.
  • An applicant’s job experience gained while enrolled in full-time study in Canada cannot be included.

Canadian Experience Class Language Requirement

You must do the following:

Satisfy the Canadian Language Benchmark 7 for NOC 0 or A positions OR the Canadian Language Benchmark 5 for NOC B jobs as a minimum language level

Take authorized language examinations in the following areas:

  • writing
  • reading
  • listening
  • speaking

Your language tests must be valid on the day you apply for permanent residence and are valid for two years following the date of the test result.

Because of the enormous potential that such a visa provides, the rate of application is quite high, and not everyone who applies would get a chance. While the CEC Application method has its benefits, it also has a number of challenging issues that one must manage in order to have a successful case. From start to end, the application forms, processes, and paperwork must be done flawlessly.
