International Experience Canada
IEC provides foreign youth between the ages of 18 and 35 the opportunity to travel and work temporarily in Canada to fund their trip or to gain a Canadian work experience.
Canada has reciprocal agreements and arrangements that facilitate youth mobility with 32 countries and territories. IEC has three different streams: Working Holiday, Young Professionals and International Co-operation (Internship).
As of late 2015, one is now required to apply to a pool per region, where candidates will be selected during the year from this pool, as such, it is best to apply early in the year.
Processing times take about two months, once one is accepted as a candidate, you are must apply for a work permit, as per the normal requirements.
Depending on your nationality, you may also need a temporary resident visa.
