Working Holiday International Experience Canada

IEC Working Holiday Program

Working Holiday participants receive Open Work Permits that allow them to work anywhere in the host country to support their travels.

You can earn money to fund your vacation in Canada with temporary work; the type of Work Permit you get for Working Holiday is an open work permit which allows you to work for any employer in Canada, except for an employer who is listed as failing to comply with work conditions or an employer who offers striptease, erotic dance, escort services or erotic massages.

You can qualify for the Working Holiday Program if:

  • You don’t have a job offer
  • You are willing to work for more than one employer in Canada
  • You are willing to work in more than one location
  • You want to earn some money so that you can travel around Canada

    International Experience Canada IEC is an international agreement with Canada and 34 other countries for young adults aged 18 to 30 (inclusive) to work and travel abroad for up to 2 years. Some countries allow for young adults aged 18 to 35 with the exception of Mexico which only allows young adults from the ages of 18 to 29. Please contact our office to find out which age bracket your country falls under.

    How to Apply for a Canada Working Holiday Visa

    To apply for a Working Holiday Visa you must be a citizen of one of Canada's 34 partner countries. Canada's IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) allows eligible candidates who enter the IEC pools to apply for a work permit. These are called rounds of invitations.
