The Canadian Experience Class is a new program of immigration for qualified temporary foreign workers and foreign student graduates with professional, managerial and skilled work experience in Canada. The Canadian Experience Class (CEC) started on September 17th, 2008. Unlike other programs, the program allows an applicant’s experience in Canada to be considered a key selection factor when immigrating to Canada.
There are options for international graduates and temporary foreign workers in Canada to become permanent residence through Canadian experience classes.
You can either apply under the federal program or, you can make your application through Quebec or one of the provinces that have programs for students and/or workers. There are several options for you to consider as listed below:
If you are currently working in Canada on temporary basis and want to settle down there permanently then Canada Experience Class is for you. The individuals, who are having work experience in Canada and living there legally, are eligible to apply for this visa. The CEC is processed through Express Entry system. This program is ideal for those who have seen the Canada by living and working over there and want to resettle there.

A candidate is required to first submit an expression of interest in immigrating to Canada. After that you need to create an Express Entry profile in preparation for creating an Express Entry profile the applicant should have their foreign post-secondary educational credentials assessed for their Canadian equivalent and if CIC founds everything positive in your application then you will get an Invitation of Apply (ITA) for Canada Permanent Resident.
If you are having working experience in Canada and want to apply for CEC visa program, then you must meet with the following required eligibility criteria.
