If you get a chance to immigrate to Canada, will you like to miss it? Obviously the answer will be no. There is no end of the applicants who are eager to become a Canadian permanent resident. If you are one of those applicants who aspires to become the Canada’s resident, but do not have much knowledge about the eligibility for Canada PR, then certainly this piece of article will give you some relevant information on the same.
Here we will talk about one of the most popular economic immigration programmes of the country, the Canadian Experience Class (CEC). It is essentially for the trained skilled workers who will like to call themselves Canadian Permanent residents.
Temporary skilled workers are most valuable for the growth of the country’s economy, and are ideal for becoming permanent residents. As they have already gained work experience and are well aware about the country’s culture, they are more expected to easily settle into the national society and contribute towards the country economic and social development. Hence the category is extremely popular among those who have gained some handy work experience and are eager to settle in Canada permanently.
The visa application for the CEC can be processed via the system Canada Express Entry as well. Aspiring applicants must create an online profile followed by Expression of Interest (EOI). Eligible applicants are picked fast and are issued an Invitation to Apply (ITA) once they clear the crucial stage Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) and will get 60 days to claim Permanent Residency (PR). Through Express Entry, applicants get a fair opportunity to compete on the basis of their attributes.
Canadian Experience Class Eligibility for Canada PR
Applicants must fulfill the following requirements:
- They must have at least one year of Canadian skill experience in the last three years from the date the application is submitted.
- They must meet the language benchmark as per the job level, i.e., 5 initial intermediate, or 7 adequate intermediate proficiency.
- They must aim to settle permanently outside Quebec. Those with Quebec work experience or intention to settle in the province must apply for Quebec Experience Class.
Candidates can submit their visa application while they are in the country. However the category is wide open for those who are no longer in the country but have submitted their application within three years of resigning from their job.
The CEC is a popular option for overseas students as well. It’s a quick and a simple pathway to acquire the Canada PR Visa. Its process is clearly based on fail or pass norm, if the applicant meets the minimum eligibility criteria, then he enters the Express Entry Pool.
Note: Those with an experience of being self-employed or while they have worked as a student is not counted under the CEC.
