Application Process for all RO IEC Applicants
Make sure you read all the instructions before submitting an application. Please do not submit multiple applications. We will filter applicants by their latest submission, so if you apply several times, you will be moving your application down on the list. Make sure you have all the information with you before you apply.
1. Update Your Resume
Make sure you provide an updated resume through our application form, including the following information:
- Current address (including city and country)
- Education and work experience. Please include the country – indicate any stays of six months or more outside your home country so that we can help you identify any additional police certificates required for your application.
- Contact details (email, phone number)
We will not contact applicants that submit outdated resumes or that resumes don’t match the information provided through our application form. We will not consider an incomplete application.
2. Complete Our Application Form on Stepwest.com
Make sure you complete the application form selecting the right program:
- RO Working Holiday 2022: for the Working Holiday work permit category.
- RO Young Professional 2022: for Young Professional work permit category.
Do not select any other option from our program list if you want to be considered for our Recognized Organization Program, as we won’t be able to find your application and you will not be considered for our RO program.
Make sure to take the time to complete our application with your most updated information so we can review your details and contact you if you qualify!
3. Confirmation Email – Wait for Our Response
Due to the high volume of applications, we are unable to contact each applicant individually regarding the status of their application, so please bear with us. We aim to support as many applicants as we can, but unfortunately, our quota is very limited, so we will not be able to help every single applicant that applies.
Submitting an application and receiving a confirmation email does not mean that you have secured an invitation under our RO Quota. Once we have received your application, we will carefully review it and if you match the requirements and our quota per country, we will contact you to organize an online meeting to go over the details. Only after that meeting, and after providing the required information, will you receive official confirmation of acceptance into the program.
4. Meeting With Stepwest
Once you are officially accepted into the program you will be able to create your IEC profile, following these instructions. We will need you to send us the “Welcome to the Pool Letter” that you receive after submission so that we can get your Application Number.
An IEC application profile number starts with a “W” followed by 9 digits and can be found on the letter you received from International Experience Canada when you submitted your profile into the RO Stepwest pool.
Please note that if you have not been accepted under the RO program through us, being in the RO pool will not make a difference.
