International Experience Canada is no longer accepting applications for 2013. Applicants with active WTNs can still login to their IEC Kompass accounts. Information regarding the opening of the 2014 International Experience Canada initiative will be posted on this page at a later date. Thank you for your interest!
The 2014 application process will be conducted in two stages. The first stage will be conducted completely online through IEC Kompass account, including the submission of all supporting documents electronically. Paper applications will not be accepted.
To start your IEC application, consult the Application Step-by-Step Guide.
Starting 2013, two significant changes will be made to the International Experience Canada initiative for Irish citizens:
Previously, Irish citizens were permitted to participate twice, each time up to 12 months. Starting 2013, Irish citizens who had participated in the International Experience Canada initiative (including through USIT) for a period of up to 12 months will be eligible for another participation of up to 24 months. Those who had participated in the International Experience Canada initiative (including through USIT) more than once (i.e., beyond 12 months) will not be eligible.
Please note that no third party organization/vendor can guarantee you a spot in the IEC 2013 initiative.
We hope to welcome you to Canada soon!
