Canadian Experience Class: Do You Qualify to Live in Canada Permanently?

If you are currently in Canada temporarily as a student or worker, you may have the opportunity to make the transition from temporary residence to permanent residence with the Canadian Experience Class program.  Your time spent in Canada, along with the contributions you have made to Canadian society, will assist in your eligibility to stay permanently.

Although you have an advantage over other applicants who have not lived in Canada yet, your documents and history in Canada must be organized properly for your immigration case to be approved.  In addition, the CEC application package must be prepared perfectly and submitted to the correct immigration office.  This is why enlisting an immigration lawyer is essential when applying for Canadian Experience Class.  At Niren & Associates, our lawyers have over 30 years combined experience in assisting foreigners to become Canadian permanent residents.
