Canadian Experience Class

The Canadian Experience Class (CEC) is a category that allows individuals to submit an Expression of Interest for the Express Entry pool of qualified candidates for permanent residence (PR) based on their experience in Canada as a temporary foreign worker.

To qualify for the Express Entry pool under the CEC category, applicants must have at least 12 months of full-time work experience in Canada or the equivalent in part-time work experience within the 36 months prior to the date of the application. The work experience must be in an occupation identified under the National Occupational Classification (NOC) type O, or skill level A or B.

All applicants in the CEC category are required to demonstrate that they meet minimum language proficiency criteria in either English or French.
