You must have a valid internship offer in Canada in order to apply for this work permit. Participants must have a signed letter of offer, or a signed contract of employment before submitting their profile to the pool.
You not only need the internship offer, but your employer must follow the requirements from International Experience Canada (IEC) and pay the relevant fees, so you become eligible for this work permit.
If you have an internship offer, but your host employer is not willing to follow the process and pay the fees, you will not be able to apply. Our Internship programs guarantee you the internship offer in Canada with employers willing to follow the required steps for you to get your internship, so we’ve got you covered!
