In order to qualify, applicants must have a minimum of one year of full-time skilled work experience in Canada in the three years preceding the application, meet certain language requirements, and intend to settle outside Quebec. The program is managed through the Express Entry system, which uses a point system to rank assess candidates. Top ranking candidates who meet the program criteria are invited to apply for permanent residence through the Express Entry system
Please be advised that qualifying for the Canadian Experience Class is only the first step in immigrating to Canada. Applicants who qualify for the Canadian Experience Class must create a candidate profile in Express Entry and receive an Invitation to apply for permanent residence before submitting their application.
