    What is the Canadian Experience Class Program?

    The Canadian Experience Class (CEC) is a program that allows foreigners to obtain permanent residence as a result of at least 12 months of previous work experience in one or more NOC 0, A or B full-time occupations.

    Prospects who have engaged in full-time employment, under the conditions stated above, may apply for Canadian permanent residence as long as the work experience was acquired no more than 36 months before the application is received by the case processing center.

    Canadian Experience Class Program Requirements

    Work Experience and Status

    In order to qualify for Canadian Experience Class, a person must have worked in Canada as a skilled full-time worker for at least 12 months or a total of 1,560 hours.

    Those who acquired work experience while being full-time students, or under different circumstances, do not qualify for CEC.

    Work experience must be gained while being in Canada as a temporary resident and have worked under certain work classifications.

    NOC Classification

    Canada uses the National Occupational Classification (NOC) to classify and describe occupations found in the Canadian labour market. Jobs are grouped based on the type of job duties and the type of work a person does.

    In order to qualify for CEC, a person must have worked a full-time job for at least 12 months in a job classified under NOC 0, a or B.

    Language Proficiency

    CEC goes further than Canadian work experience. In order to fully qualify for the program, an applicant must meet certain language requirements depending on the NOC.

    Applicants must take a language proficiency test and meet a certain score by the Canadian Language Benchmark for English or the Niveaux de Compétence Linguistique Canadiens (NCLC). NOC 0 or A job applicants must have a minimum score of 7 to 9. NOC B job applicants must have a minimum score of 5 to 6.
