Immigration Lawyer Toronto & #1 Canadian Immigration Lawyer Ronen Kurzfeld
When a candidate receives an invitation to apply to the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) under the Express Entry system, Citizenship and Immigration Canada use the following criteria to assess the application:
- Candidates must have at least 12 months of full-time (or an equal amount in part-time) skilled work experience in Canada in the three years before applying;
- Candidates must have gained the experience in Canada with the proper authorization; and
- Candidates must meet the required language levels for each language ability (speaking, reading, writing and listening).
Please note that calculating full-time employment or its equivalent can be tricky in some cases. In addition, please note that NOT every employment qualifies under the CEC category.
Applicants and their immediate and accompanying family members will have to take a medical examination before coming to Canada.
Only a designated medical practitioner can conduct the medical examinations. The examinations are only valid for 12 months.
Each applicant over the age of 18 must provide police clearances for all countries and states in which he or she has resided for more than 6 months.
If you have criminal convictions or charges pending, contact us to find out whether you are criminally inadmissible.
