The 2015 IEC season will not open before January 2015. Be assured that opening information will be posted on the IEC website as it becomes available. We ask that eligible participants from IEC countries and Canadian employers refrain from contacting the IEC team as it will not have any information available before it appears on the IEC website. Please continue to check the IEC website for updates and any details on the 2015 opening.
If you wish to explore other options for coming to Canada, please visit the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) website.
In 2014, the quota will be separated in several rounds.
If a round closes before you had time to submit your IEC application through your Kompass account, you will be able to apply in the next round.
To start your IEC application, consult the Application Step-by-Step Guide.
You must enter your Family and Given Name(s), passport number and date of birth into your application, as shown in your passport. Any applications submitted on December 17th, 2013 or at a later date, will be refused if the names, passport number or date of birth do not match the information written in your passport. The date of birth must be entered in the format requested in the IEC form no matter what the format is in your passport.
IEC processes applications on a first-come, first-served basis. If you withdraw your application, you will lose your place in line.

We hope to welcome you to Canada soon!
