Canadian Experience Class

As of January 2015, there is a new system for people to apply to this program. It is called Express Entry.

If someone is eligible to immigrate under the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) program, they can submit their Express Entry profile.

An eligible candidate:

  • will be placed in a pool with other eligible candidates and given a score,
  • is then ranked using several factors based on Comprehensive Ranking System, and
  • if they rank as a top candidate, they will be invited to apply to be a permanent resident of Canada.

*IRCC will issue an Invitation to Apply to the highest ranking candidates from the pool through regular “rounds of invitations”

  •  if an applicant is invited, they will have 90 days to apply online for permanent residence.

Express Entry profile will expire if an applicant is not invited to apply in those 12 months.
