Rattan Immigration For Canadian Experience Class

The CEC is a permanent resident category for individuals with skilled work experience in Canada. It was developed for temporary foreign workers and foreign graduates with qualifying Canadian work experience.

The candidate under CEC can apply his application under Express Entry. Express Entry is Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s (IRCC’s) system for managing the intake of economic immigration applications submitted on or after January 1, 2015, for the following classes:

Minimum requirements

To qualify under CEC an applicant must

  • Have at least 12 months of full-time (or an equal amount in part-time) skilled work experience holder in Canada in the three years before you apply,
  • Have gained your experience in Canada with the proper authorization,
  • Meet the required language levels needed for your job. For each language ability (speaking, reading, writing and listening),
  • Plan to live outside the province of Quebec.

Note: The province of Quebec does not use Express Entry. They select their own skilled workers.

Canadian Experience Class

Skilled work experience

Self-employment and work experience gained while you were a full-time student (for example, on a co-op work term) does not count under this program.

To be considered for the Canadian Experience Class, you need to have Canadian skilled work experience within three years of applying. According to the Canadian National Occupational Classification (NOC), skilled work experience means:

  • Managerial jobs (NOC skill level 0)
  • Professional jobs (NOC skill type A)
  • Technical jobs and skilled trades (NOC skill type B)

Your experience must be at least 12 months of full-time (30 hours of paid work per week or more) or an equal amount in part-time hours.

Full Time

30 hours/week for 12 months=1 year full time (1,560 hours)

Part time

15 hours/week for 24 months=1 year full time (1,560 hours)

OR

30 hours/week for 12 months at more than one job=1 year full time (1,560 hours)

You must show that you did the duties set out in the lead statement of the occupational description in the NOC, including all the essential duties and most of the main duties listed.

If you do not show that your experience meets the description in the NOC, we will not accept your application.

Find out the NOC code, title and skill type or level for your job.

If your existing work permit is about to expire, you may be eligible for a bridging open work permit. If you are eligible, this permit can let you keep working while you wait for a final decision on your permanent residence application.

Education

There is no education requirement for Canadian Experience Class. But, if you want to earn points for your education under Express Entry, you either need:

A Canadian secondary (high school) or post-secondary certificate, diploma or degree,

OR

A completed foreign credential, and

An{Educational Credential Assessment (ECA)}report from an agency approved by CIC. [The report must show your foreign education is equal to a completed Canadian secondary (high school) or post-secondary certificate, diploma or degree.]

Language Ability

Applicant must:

  • meet the minimum language level of Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) 7 for NOC 0 or A jobs OR Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) 5 for NOC B jobs, and
  • Take a language test approved by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) that shows you meet the level for speaking, listening, reading and writing.
  • You must show that you meet the requirements in English or French by including the test results when you complete your Express Entry profile. Your test results must not be more than two years old on the day you apply for permanent residence or you will need to retake the test.

Principal applicant

If you are married or live with a common-law foreign national partner in Canada, and that person also meets the requirements, one or both of you can fill out an Express Entry profile.

The person who is invited to apply and submits an application is the “principal applicant.”

A common-law partner is a person who has lived with you in a conjugal relationship for at least one year. Common-law partner refers to both opposite-sex and same-sex couples.
