Reopening of International Experience Canada (IEC) Program for 2017 Season

Canada (IEC) ProgramCitizens of 32 countries would get the opportunity to live and work in Canada on a temporary basis under the IEC program for 2017. The candidates who are eligible for the same can apply for the pool by creating a profile for their respective country and category. Some of the countries which are eligible for the program are Australia, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany and Hong Kong.

Working holidays, Young professionals and International Co-op are the three salient categories for this program which are made available to the candidates. The applicant can also apply for more than one category depending upon the country and citizenship. However, the category of Young professionals has proved to be very beneficial for the people from a really long time. The best part about this category is that young people who are intended to stay in Canada on IEC permit decide to stay longer or even permanently. Another advantage is the opportunity to travel across Canada for different purposes under the IEC program.

A person has to create a profile to apply for the open work permit in the season of 2017. To submit the application successfully, one must receive an ITA before submitting the application.

There are no discrimination done on the basis of the ranking system but all the candidates get an equal chance of being issued the ITA. Candidates who are interested to apply for the pool, need to apply as soon as possible in order to increase the chances for being issued with an ITA.

The dates for the first round have not been announced yet, but people are looking forward to this program. A notice period of five days would be given before the final round for any country and category. All the three categories have the different duration period of issuing the work permit and that too for the different reason. The application would be processed within 8 weeks.
