You’ve always dreamed of spending a year living and working in Canada. Maybe you want to work at a ski resort in Banff… gain valuable work experience in the financial district in downtown Toronto… or do an internship entirely in French in Quebec City.
International Experience Canada (IEC) manages Canada’s youth mobility arrangements and agreements with different countries around the world. These arrangements and agreements make it easier for you to obtain a work permit to travel and work in Canada for up to one year.
Work permits under IEC are available to young people aged 18-35* who are from one of the countries that have a bilateral reciprocal youth mobility arrangement or agreement with Canada. Consult the list below for participating countries to see if your country of origin has a bilateral reciprocal youth mobility arrangement or agreement with Canada. Click on the name of your country to be re-directed to the corresponding Embassy of Canada website for specific application details.
