What is Canadian Experience Class?
The Canadian Experience Class is designed for skilled workers who have worked in Canada and want to become permanent residents. This is one of the 3 federal programs managed through Express Entry.
The Canadian Experience Class program was created to assist short-term foreign employees & graduates in their acquisition of permanent residency in Canada for candidates with at minimum of a year of Canadian job experience. Candidates with Canadian experience also have the opportunity to qualify for extra Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points through Express Entry, in addition to this incentive. This raises their likelihood of being granted permanent residence.
Since then, the Canadian Experience Class has expanded into one of Canada’s most significant immigration routes for talented workers, and it is widely recognized as a great success by Canadian governments, communities, employers, and immigration applicants themselves.
