The Canadian Experience Class (CEC) is an immigration program aimed to help temporary foreign workers and foreign students to apply their work experience and education towards their applications for residency. The Canadian Experience Class supports the transition from temporary residence to permanent residence, taking into account the time that the international student or skilled worker spent in Canada while contributing to Canadian society.
Both types of applicants (foreign graduates as well as temporary foreign workers) need to have work experience in Canada to qualify for the Canadian Experience Class. All of the requirements for the Canadian Experience Class are based on a pass or fail model. If the minimum requirements are met, the applicant is eligible to apply to this program.
Only 12,000 complete applications will be accepted yearly. AND There will be sub-caps of 200 applications for each NOC B applications.
Due to the tremendous opportunity such a visa allows its applicant, the rate of application is extremely high and not all that apply may be accepted. While the CEC Application procedure has its advantages, there are many difficult aspects to the application that must be addressed in order to have a successful case. The application forms, procedures, and documentation must be handled perfectly from start to finish.
Each year, Canada offers countless immigrants the opportunity of realizing their dreams through the trades and education they have acquired during their time in Canada. This can be you, but only if you take the proper steps to achieve your goals.
NOTE: On November 9, 2013 CIC Announced that for the CEC category there will be an annual cap of just 12000 CEC Applications until October 31st, 2014.
