The IEC 2024 fees are CAD 172, with additional fees for some programs. 

Iceland and Finland are joining the IEC in 2024, and South Korean youth can participate in more programs this year. IEC work permit holders require health insurance during their stay. To participate, candidates must submit a profile and receive an invitation before applying for a work permit. Invitations are issued weekly, and applications must be made within ten days of accepting the invitation.

New Changes announced in the International Experience Canada program

Who can Participate in the International Experience Canada (IEC) 2024?

Your country or territory of citizenship must have a Youth Mobility Agreement (YMA) with Canada in order to participate in International Experience Canada (IEC).

Certain IEC-recognized organizations (RO) can assist a small number of youth from non-partner countries in participating in IEC in some cases. Some countries restrict your participation to one time. Others permit you to participate twice in different categories. Because each country is different, you should check to see if you are eligible to apply.

Even if you are invited to apply, you cannot participate multiple times per country. Following the submission of your application, an officer will evaluate your eligibility, including previous participation. Before submitting an application, make sure that you have thoroughly reviewed all of the requirements.
