Canadian Experience Class (CEC) – Transitioning to Permanent Residence with Ease
At Think Future Immigration, we recognize the invaluable contributions of individuals who have gained valuable work experience in Canada. If you have acquired skilled work experience in Canada and wish to transition to permanent residence, the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) offers an excellent pathway to achieve your goal. As a licensed immigration agency, we are committed to helping skilled workers like you navigate the CEC program and make Canada your long-term home.
What is the Canadian Experience Class (CEC)?
The Canadian Experience Class (CEC) is one of Canada’s federal economic immigration programs designed to facilitate the transition of temporary foreign workers and international graduates to permanent residence. The CEC prioritizes individuals with Canadian work experience, as they have already integrated into the Canadian labor market and demonstrated their ability to contribute to the country’s economy.
Eligibility for the CEC
To be eligible for the Canadian Experience Class, you must meet certain requirements, including:
Skilled Work Experience in Canada: You must have at least one year of full-time skilled work experience (or equivalent part-time work) in Canada within the last three years before applying. The work experience should be at skill level 0, A, or B of the National Occupational Classification (NOC).
Language Proficiency: You must demonstrate proficiency in English or French by taking a language test approved by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
Plan to Live Outside Quebec: The province of Quebec has a separate immigration selection system. If you plan to live in Quebec, you must apply through their immigration program.
Admissibility: You must be admissible to Canada, meaning you must not have any serious criminal convictions or medical issues that would hinder your entry into the country.
The CEC Application Process
The Canadian Experience Class operates within the Express Entry system, an online immigration application system that manages the profiles of candidates for three federal economic immigration programs: CEC, Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), and Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP).
To apply for the CEC, you need to create an Express Entry profile, and if you meet the eligibility requirements, you may receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence.
At Think Future Immigration, we will guide you through the entire application process, ensuring all necessary documents are compiled and your application is submitted accurately and efficiently.
