New IEC Draws 2023


International Experience Canada

A number of programs known as International Experience Canada (IEC) allow young people from participating countries to visit Canada temporarily to live and work there. If an international applicant completes one of the IEC programs successfully, they will be qualified to apply for a work permit in Canada without the need for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). With the acceptance of work permits, IEC permits temporary stay in Canada for a maximum of one year.

EC work permits are authorized using a system of random draws. Not all foreign nationals who indicate interest in the program will be chosen. Success chances depend on the quota for each program and country. There are three separate programs administered by the IEC. Interested applicants should confirm the requirements for the various programs even if IEC has general standards. Each program has its own requirements and may lead to a sure kind of work authorization:

  • Working Holiday
  • Young Professionals
  • International Co-op Internship
