What is the International Experience Canada?

The International Experience Canada (IEC) program is a unique initiative tailored for young adults from participating countries. It offers them the chance to live and work in Canada for up to two years, facilitating cultural exchange and skill development. Eligible individuals, typically aged between 18 and 35, can apply for various pools within the program, such as Working Holiday, Young Professionals, and International Co-op (Internship).

Invitations to Apply are issued in a specific order, prioritizing categories like International Co-op (Internship), Young Professionals, and Working Holiday. Candidates with profiles in multiple pools may receive invitations based on their eligibility and available spots in each category. However, receiving an Invitation to Apply does not guarantee automatic issuance of a work permit.
