Due to the projected labour shortages, the Canadian Government has designed a special immigration program to retain skilled workers who have Canadian work experience. This program is of particular interest to Temporary Foreign Workers and International Students with high-skilled work experience in Canada.
Eligible applicants are those who gained one year of full-time or full-time equivalent Canadian experience in managerial, technical, professional or trade fields in the last 3 years with proper authorization. In addition, applicants have to prove good language proficiency on the basis of the official language test results issued by the designated agency.
Note: Qualified applicants can no longer submit their permanent residency application directly to this program. Instead, applicants have to go through the Express Entry (EE) system by creating a profile and entering the pool of prospective immigrants. Visit our webpage “Express Entry” or contact us directly for information on the application process under the CEC.
