CEC is managed under the Express Entry system and uses the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) to rank interested candidates. Applicants who have competitive CRS scores will receive invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
In order to be eligible for CEC, a candidate must have at least 12-months of full-time (or an equivalent amount of part-time), skilled work experience in Canada. The Canadian work experience must have been acquired within the previous three years from the date of the application.
CEC is not an option for foreign nationals who do not have recent Canadian work experience.
In order to count your 12-months of Canadian work experience towards your CEC application, it must meet the following conditions:
An applicant cannot count work experience obtained while engaged in full-time studies in Canada.
In addition to the Canadian experience requirement, CEC has several other eligibility criteria which must be met in order to submit:
