Canadian Experience Class

The Canadian Experience Class (CEC) is for those individuals who have already been residing in Canada, while either working or studying, and have a good sense of life in Canada.  Under this program, the applicant may have lived in Canada for a certain period of time, possess the necessary English and/or French skills and the right kind of work experience.  All of these factors will contribute to helping a potential candidate under this program integrate successfully into Canada as a Permanent Resident.  A successful applicant will have the tools and skills required to permanently take part in the Canadian economy.


CEC Information

A temporary foreign worker or a foreign student, together with the right skilled work experience in Canada, may qualify under this program to shift from temporary to permanent residence.  The primary goal of this program is to attract those individuals that have the necessary work experience in Canada, so that they can become Permanent Residents and contribute to the Canadian economy.  There are several requirements that you must meet to be eligible under the Canadian Experience Class (CEC).  You must:
