What Is Canadian Experience Class?
The Canadian Experience Class (CEC) deals with Canada’s foreign employees who want to get permanent residency. Persons who are on temporal work positions are perfect candidates to apply for permanent residency. Since these people have gained work experience in Canada, they do understand Canadian society and must have made several networks within the community and their professions.
