The Canadian Experience Class is for foreign skilled workers who have work experience working in Canada and are looking to become a permanent resident. Applications are processed through the Express Entry selection system. The applicant must make an expression of interest by creating an online Express Entry profile.
To be eligible for the CEC, you must meet the following requirements:
One year (or 12 months) of work experience is defined as at least 1,560 hours of skilled work in Canada. The 1,560 hours can be obtained through full-time and/or part-time work.
The Canadian Experience Class requirements are based on a pass or fail model. If the minimum requirements are met, the applicant is eligible to enter the Express Entry pool.
