    Boost Your Chances: Criteria & Application Tips

    Since 2008, the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) has provided a major pathway for candidates who have worked in Canada and want to move to Canada permanently. The Canadian Experience Class has grown into one of Canada’s largest immigration pathways for skilled workers, and it is regarded as a resounding success by governments across the country, communities, employers, and immigration candidates themselves. For temporary foreign workers and foreign graduates who go on to acquire Canadian job experience, the Canadian Experience Class is a well-known option. One of the three initiatives overseen by Canada’s Express Entry system is the Canadian Experience Class.
