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.
The government of Canada recognizes a lot of talented workers already working in Canada, and wants them to become permanent residents. These are individuals and families who have put down roots and made plans for a future in Canada.
Prior to 2015, Canadian Experience Class applications were managed on a first-come, first-served basis. Since 2015, however, Canadian Experience Class applications have been processed under the Express Entry immigration selection system.
