International Experience Canada Opening 2015

 

Refer to the table below to see invitation dates, quotas, number of invites sent so far per country for IEC 2017, and more.

We are back! Just as we did during International Experience Canada IEC 2015 & 2016, during the IEC 2017 season we will keep you updated about quotas and opening dates for each country! We were amazed about the number of views of our video-guide (with more than 7,500 reproductions) and the number of visits of our online guide How to apply for a Canadian Working Holiday Visa 2016.

So let´s get IEC 2017 season started: We think that it MAY look like IEC 2016 season once again, but it’s important to remember that it’s ultimately dependent on the International Experience Canada decisions. We still want to keep you updated with our updated IEC Guide 2017 about How to apply for a Canadian Working Holiday during International Experience Canada 2017!

As of today, except for Mexico and Ukraine, where there are still no news about their IEC 2017 openings, ALL other countries are accepting applicants to their pools for each category (Working Holiday, Young Professionals, International Co-op) .

So if you are wondering “When will the International Experience Canada IEC start sending invitations for my country?”, we have the answer in our summary table belowWe will be updating this table every Friday, so make sure you check this blog regularly! We will be doing so at the same time as IEC will be updating their numbers on CIC website. IEC will provide at least five days notice before the:

  • first round of invitations, and
  • final round of invitations.

Several rounds of invitations may take place between the first and last rounds. If you are in a pool, you could receive an Invitation to Apply any time after the date of the first round of invitations.

We’re looking forward to meeting you all in Vancouver Canada, whether it be for our Internship ProgramsWorking Holiday Programs, or even for our Education Programs

NOTE: First rounds of invitations won’t start until end of November 2016, but you can submit a profile already for IEC 2017 season!
