The Canadian Experience Class (CEC) is a permanent residence category for people with skilled work experience in Canada.
Are you a skilled worker with Canadian work experience and want to become a permanent resident? You may be eligible.
- at least 12 months of full-time, or an equal amount in part-time, of skilled work experience in Canada in the three years before you apply
- the required language levels needed for the National Occupational Classification (NOC) skill level of your work experience in each language ability: speaking, reading, writing, and listening
There are no education requirements for the Canadian Experience Class. However, if you want to improve your rank in the Express Entry pool, there are two ways you may do this:
- you went to school in Canada: you may gain points for a certificate, diploma or degree from a Canadian secondary (high school) or post-secondary school
- you have foreign education: you may gain points for a completed foreign credential, and an Educational Credential Assessment report from an approved agency showing that your education is equal to a completed certificate, diploma or degree from a Canadian secondary (high school) or post-secondary school.
