Canadian Experience Class

Immigrate Permanently and Work in Canada

Canadian Experience Class

The Canadian Experience Class (CEC) is an independent immigration program for applicants who have at least a year of full-time skilled work experience in Canada or over one year of part-time skilled work experience in Canada

UW assists you in applying for the Canadian Experience Class visa right from registration to the end. Here’s how we’ll assist you:

  • We assist in creating your CEC profile once you meet the eligibility criteria
  • CRS ranking guidance on how to improve your score if less
  • Once ITA is received, we will assist you in applying for Canadian PR
Eligibility Criteria

Candidates must have at least 12 months of full-time (or comparable part-time) competent job experience in Canada during the last three years to obtain a valid work visa.

The work experience must have been gained while on a valid work visa and must have been in one or more jobs categorized as skill types 0, A, or B by the National Occupational Classification (NOC). The one year of experience can be obtained in two distinct NOC codes as long as they are skilled occupations.

To live comfortably, candidates must meet the required language levels for each language ability for the job (speaking, reading, listening, and writing).

Canadian officials perform a background to ensure that the applicant has not been involved in any criminal matter and there is no criminal case proceeding against them in a court of law.

Roadmap to Canadian Experience Class Success

Canadian Work Permit

Acquire a Canadian work permit, whether it’s an open work permit or an employer-specific one, to apply for the CEC.

Express Entry Profile

This step is completed on the IRCC website. You will be required to supply certain personal information, some of which will be self-declared (such as your employment history) and some of which may require documentation (such as your proof of language ability).

CRS Ranking

The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) is used to rank skilled worker candidates who wish to come to Canada through Express Entry. The CRS assigns candidates a score based on factors such as their age, education, language abilities, and job experience.

Invitation to Apply

You will have 60 days from this moment to submit a full application. When IRCC performs one of its draws from the Express Entry pool, ITAs are issued.

Medical and Background Check

All Canadian Experience Class candidates are subjected to medical and criminal background checks. You must submit proof of a medical exam with an IRCC-approved panel physician with your application. Furthermore, present a police background check (clearance certificate) from each nation you have resided in for at least six months since the age of 18.

PR Status

When permanent residency is granted, an official at a Canadian port of entry or an IRCC office signs and dates this document.
