Canadian Experience Class
Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
The Canadian Experience Class (CEC) is an immigration program that allows individuals who have worked in Canada for at least one year to immigrate permanently.
The government of Canada acknowledges the deep pool of talented workers already working in Canada, and wants them to become permanent residents. These are the individuals and families, who have expressed their interest for settling in Canada and have made plans for their future in Canada.Prior to 2015, Canadian Experience Class applications were managed on a first-come, first-served basis. Since 2015, however, Canadian Experience Class applications are processed under the Express Entry immigration selection system.
