Canadian Experience Class

Are you already in Canada on a study permit or work permit? If so, then you’ll be happy to know that the Canadian Experience Class is a new immigration program aimed to help temporary foreign workers and foreign students to use their managerial, professional, technical or trade work experience towards their applications for residency.

The time that International students and skilled workers spend in Canada while contributing to Canadian society will now assist in their eligibility to stay permanently.

Do You Qualify To Transition From Temporary Residence To Permanent Residence?

Under the Canadian Experience Class program for International Students to transition from temporary residence to permanent residence, they require:

  • At least two years post secondary education in Canada and
  • One year full–time Canadian skilled work experience in specific job categories and
  • Language proficiency (English or French) needed for occupation.
  • Temporary Foreign Workers with
  • At least two years of recent [in the last 3 years] full-time Canadian skilled work experience in specific job categories and
  • Language proficiency (English or French) needed for occupation.

Application Procedure for CEC Class:

  • Applicants can remain in Canada throughout the application process, or apply from elsewhere within one year of leaving their job in Canada.
  •  Selection will be based on a pass/fail system.
  • Applicants will be selected if they meet the parameters noted above, have legally come to Canada to work or study, have valid temporary status in Canada at the time of application, and have moderate official language proficiency.
