The following class and programs are the most popular routes of Express Entry:

Canadian Experience Class (CEC)

Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) uses the following criteria to assess CEC applications filed under the Express Entry system:

  • Candidates must have skilled work experience for at least 12 months (or the equivalent in part-time) in the three years prior to applying;
  • Candidates must meet required language levels for speaking , listening, writing and reading abilities; and
  • Candidates must gain their work experience with proper authorization.

It’s important to keep in mind that not every type of work experience qualifies under the CEC category. This is where a North York immigration lawyer Ronen Kurzfeld can help you make the best decisions for success.

Federal Skilled Trades Program

CIC uses the following criteria to assess Federal Skilled Trades Program applications filed under the Express Entry system:

  • Candidates must meet required language levels in reading, speaking, listening and writing abilities in either English or French;
  • Candidates must have a minimum of two years of full-time work experience (or the equivalent in part-time) during the five years prior to applying;
  • Candidates must meet the job requirements set out by the National Occupational Classification (NOC) for that particular skilled trade, except for qualification certificates; and
  • Candidates must have a full-time employment offer for at least a year, or a certificate qualification in that skilled trade provided by a Canadian territory or provincial authority.

Ronen Kurzfeld, an immigration lawyer in North York, and his team have vast experience in the Federal Skilled Trades category and with helping clients acquire the appropriate trade certificates from relevant authorities.

Federal Trades Worker Program

CIC uses a point system to determine a candidate’s eligibility who is interested in immigrating to Canada as a skilled worker.

Applicants need to acquire a minimum of 67 points to qualify. Points are awarded based on the following six factors:

  • Education (max. 25 points)
  • Language Ability in both French and English (max. 24 points)
  • Work Experience (max. 21 points)
  • Arranged Employment (max. 10 points)
  • Adaptability (max. 10 points)

In all of the above programs, there are chances that you are inadmissible due to criminal, medical or security reasons.
