CEC (Canadian Experience Class)

Manitoba (PNP) Program / IELTS Training Classes in Ahmedabad

The Canadian Experience Class (CEC) is an immigration program that allows individuals who have worked in Canada for at least one year to immigrate permanently. Seeing as temporary foreign workers are most likely already settled in Canadian society with support networks, they can easily transition to becoming permanent residents and eventual citizens of Canada. CEC is a part of Canada’s Express Entry immigration system.


Canadian Experience Class candidates have built up at least one year of Canadian work experience. This is a highly-valued factor under the CRS, and, as such, gives these applicants access to CRS points for their Canadian experience.

Because the required documentation is minimal, Canadian Experience Class applications are processed quickly, often within three to four months.

Applicants under the Canadian Experience Class are not required to show proof of settlement funds, as FSWC and FSTC candidates are.
