When should I come to Canada on the IEC program?
International Experience Canada participants can arrive at any time of the year. However, we recommend that applicants wanting a seasonal job should arrive at least 2-3 months before the season starts to secure their job. If you want to work in the summer, you should aim to arrive between March and May. If you want to work in the winter, you should aim to arrive by October to November.
