Canadian Experience Class (CEC) 

One of the three streams included in the Express Entry system for Canadian immigration is the “Canadian Experience Class.” It specifically targets candidates who have at least a year of professional work experience in Canada.

Over 35,000 invites were sent out by Express Entry Canada in the year 2022 alone in all program draws.


The prerequisite for this stream is having at least one year of skilled-level work experience in Canada.
