The Canadian Experience Class is for applicants who have at least one year of Canadian work experience in a skilled, professional, or technical field. International students who plan to apply for permanent residence under this class should start preparing the application three years before the submission date. There is a specific list of job categories included in this program. Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada outline how international students can qualify for the Canadian Experience Class program.
There is no education requirement for the Canadian Experience Class. One must meet the minimum language requirements which are CLB level 7 for NOC O or A jobs and CLB level 5 for NOC B jobs. There are ways applicants can improve their rankings in the express entry pool for immigration purposes. Please note that one must plan to live outside the province of Quebec to apply under this category.
