The Canadian Experience Class is for skilled workers who have Canadian work experience and want to become permanent residents.
The minimum requirements are:
- At least one year of skilled, professional, or technical work experience in Canada within 36 months of the application date
- Language proficiency in English or French – CLB 5 for NOC B jobs and CLB 7 for NOC A or O jobs
- Plan to live and work outside of the province of Quebec
Note: Self-employment and work experience gained while you were a full-time student (for example, on a co-op work term) does not count under this program.
