Canada’s First CEC Draw of September 2021

Candidates with scores of at least 462 were invited by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to apply for permanent residence on September 14.

The CEC draw was expected on September 2. However, it came later than expected. According to IRCC, currently, CEC applications received in January are now being finalized.

What Is the Canadian Experience Class (CEC)?

The Canadian Experience Class is for skilled workers who have Canadian Work Experience and want to become permanent residents.

Minimum requirements

You must

  • meet the required language levels needed for your job for each language ability:

- Canadian Language Benchmark 7 for NOC 0 or A jobs or

- Canadian Language Benchmark 5 for NOC B jobs

  • have at least 1 year of skilled work experience in Canada, in the last 3 years before you apply. You can meet this in a few different ways:

- full-time at 1 job: 30 hours/week for 12 months = 1 year full-time (1,560 hours)

- equal amount in part-time work: for instance, 15 hours/week for 24 months = 1-year

full time (1,560 hours)

You can work as many part-time jobs as you need to meet this requirement.

- full-time work at more than 1 job: 30 hours/week for 12 months at more than 1 job =

1-year full time (1,560 hours)

  • have gained your work experience by working in Canada while under temporary resident status with authorization to work

There is no education requirement for the Canadian Experience Class.
