Canadian Experience Class (CEC)

The Canadian Experience Class (CEC) is an economic immigration program that requires work experience in Canada. Applicants must have a minimum of 12 months of full-time work experience in a skilled occupation in Canada within the last 3 years.

The CEC Express Entry program is a popular choice for foreign workers who have accumulated work experience in Canada and international students who have found employment in Canada after graduation, all of whom aspire to fulfill their Canadian immigration dreams. This program is not suitable for foreign nationals without any prior work experience in Canada

Nomination from a province or territory

If you receive a nomination from a province or territory through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), your CRS score will significantly increase, giving you priority in receiving an invitation to join Express Entry
