Canadian Experience Class Interview | Canadian Experience Class

The Canadian Experience Class is a category that may be of interest to you if you are working in Canada or have recently worked in Canada on a Temporary Resident status and you are not looking to establish a permanent life in Canada by obtaining Permanent Resident status.

If you are applying under the Canadian Experience Class, you will first need to ensure that you meet the requirements of the Category so that you are eligible to apply.

Generally, an immigration officer can assess your eligibility straightforwardly without any problems. The officer will make a determination on your eligibility based on the information and documentation you provide in your application. However, in some cases, your matter may not be as straightforward, and an interview may be required.

When Will An Interview Be Used?

When an immigration officer is having some trouble or has some concerns with your eligibility or any other type of requirements for the Canadian Experience Class, you may be asked to go for an interview with the officer.

Additionally, if the immigration officer has any concerns regarding the accuracy or authenticity of any of the documentation or information you provided in your application, will be communicated to you. You will have an opportunity to address these concerns.

An immigration officer will conduct an interview you with you for the following reasons:

  • To ensure that the information you submitted in your application is truthful and complete
  • To detect and deter fraudulent information and documents
  • To clarify specific information
  • To conduct quality control

An immigration officer cannot conduct an interview to assess your language skills.
