Canadian Experience Class

The Canadian Experience Class (CEC) allows temporary foreign workers with at least one year of full-time skilled work experience* (or an equal amount in part-time) in Canada, to apply for permanent residence in Canada. The experience should be gained in the three years before you apply.

All CEC applicants must meet the program’s language proficiency requirements to qualify.

If you gained your skilled work experience in Canada in a NOC skill type 0 or A, you must meet the minimum level of CLB7 in either English or French for all four language abilities. The minimum International English Language Testing System(IELTS) score requirements are:

Speaking Listening Reading Writing
6 6 6 6

For applicants with Canadian work experience of NOC skill type B, you must meet the minimum level of CLB5 in either English or French for all four language abilities. The minimum International English Language Testing System(IELTS) score requirements are:

Speaking Listening Reading Writing
5 5 4 5


One of our licensed immigration consultants can speak with you in person, online or on the phone about your unique immigration situation and to give you a breakdown of your options.

  7. Eli says:

    I think the CLB table is not correct.
    According to CIC the IELTS score for skill level 0 and A is 6 for all the ability, but you mentioned 5.5 where its not correct.

    • CICS Immigration Team says:

      As it has been mentioned, the table is the score in IELTS. Best, The CICS Team

      • Eli says:

        Thanks for your reply:

        I got score on IELTS L/R/W/S – 6/6/6/5.5

        And immigration lawyer told me that CIC will refuse my papers due to Writing is not 6 on IELTS and need to sit exam again.

        Btw, I completed my 1 year full time paid work on skill A .

  104. Jak says:

    Dear Sir/Madam

    I am a work permit holder working as a postdoctoral fellow for more than two years in Canada and more than one year in Ontario. I have a foreign Masters and PhD.

    Masters and PhD from Europe: I have got an equivalent Canadian Degree from WES.

    According to the requirements of CIC, applicants may need to submit IELTS score for immigration purpose. If I am correct, the eligibility criteria requires an IELTS band of 6 (each section).

    For these reasons, I took the exam two times and got the following scores:

    First time: Listening: 6.5
    Reading: 6.0
    Writing: 5.5
    Speaking: 8.0
    Band Score: 6.5 (i.e., Average)

    Second time: Listening: 6.0
    Reading: 5.5
    Writing: 6.5
    Speaking 7.5
    Band Score: 6.5 (i.e, Average)

    As we can see from the second exam, I have improved the writing section by 1 point, but I still hurt the reading section.

    Please note that my work on the postdoctoral fellow is on electrical, electronics and telecommunications domain where I usually work on mathematics and engineering problems. I think this affects me from getting good English score.

    Also I have more than 20 international technical published papers (IEEE papers).

    I am writing this letter to request the expert to help me on the possibilities to apply the any PNP program with the current IELTS scores. Is it possible to provide the full list of my published papers to compensate the 0.5 point loss of IELTS. Please also note that I also have other skills such as presentation, tutorial, and leadership and social skills which could possibly help to strengthen my application.

    Other information:

    Work Experience:

    Canada: 2 years as a postdoctoral fellow in electrical, electronics and telecommunications
    Europe: 5 years as a research assistant in electrical, electronics and telecommunications
    Africa: 2.5 years as junior electrical engineer in telecommunications

    Age: 35
    Financial status: More than 35000 CAD
    Civil status: Single

    Thank you very much for reading this long explanation carefully and providing me valuable information.

    Please note that I have already uploaded my profile with the old IELTS and I have 457 score by putting my work experience as “2241 – Electrical and electronics engineering technologists and technicians”.

    However, my profile is not eligible for PNP and FSW? The other thing is that does the requirement of the IELTS must be satisfied by one exam, or it could be obtained from the other. I mean in my case, the reading is 6 in one of them and 5.5 in the other, and the writing is 5.5 in one exam and 6.5 in the other? (If one takes the maximum scores from the two exams, the requirement will be okey)?

    Thank you for the explanation.

    • Sam says:

      You have to submit only one IELTS score. Its better to take the exam again and get min. 6 band in each section. Best of luck

    • Sam says:

      You can directly talk to your college or university, they will take an english exam in college. There is no need of IELTS.

      Another option, if you already study in Canada before then no need of any exam.
