Canada Experience Class

If you want to become a permanent resident of Canada, you should take the Canadian Experience Class. You will be a part of this curriculum if you are a professional worker and meet the basic criteria.

Starting with the basics, see if you fit into any of the categories listed in the Canadian National Occupation (NOC) list.

Aside from that, you must pass the language requirement test and achieve a minimum score. After that, you must also have evidence of your job experience.

Although there is no required educational equipment for this programme, a strong educational background will help you earn bonus points. Every province has its own set of criteria, so if you want to work in Quebec, you’ll need to fill out a separate form.

Before you begin the procedure, gather all of your documentation and gather all of the information you need.

Who is it for?

The Canadian Experience Class is for experienced employees who have worked in Canada and want to stay in the country permanently.
