The CEC is a component of a coordinated initiative by the federal and provincial governments of Canada to entice more foreign students and temporary workers to establish their futures in Canada.
Candidates with Canadian experience also have the opportunity to qualify for extra Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points through Express Entry, in addition to this incentive. This raises their likelihood of being granted permanent residence.
Third, Express Entry-qualified CEC candidates typically receive their permanent residency status within six months after being accepted.
A fourth key advantage of the CEC is that, in contrast to the other two Express Entry programmes, applicants who are successful under the CEC do not have to show the IRCC that they will have enough settlement money to support themselves financially once they have obtained permanent residency.
You must fulfill the criteria given below in order to be eligible for the CEC:
Express Entry is how IRCC manages applications for three programmes, including the CEC. You may be a strong candidate for the CEC if you have previously lived in Canada and accumulated relevant job experience here. Additionally, if you have a background in a trade, you can potentially be qualified for the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) and the Federal Skilled Trades Program.
Submit an Express Entry profile on the IRCC website if you meet the requirements. The IRCC conducts Express Entry lotteries roughly every two weeks to offer invitations to permanent residence to applicants with the highest CRS scores. The CRS scores are based on the human capital qualities of each candidate, including their age, education, language proficiency, work experience, and Canadian experience, among other factors. You must submit a finished application to IRCC by the deadline if you get an invitation to apply (ITA) for permanent residency. Applications should be processed by IRCC in no more than six months.
