INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE CANADA – RECOGNIZED ORGANIZATIONS

Updated: Apr 22

WHAT ORGANIZATIONS ARE RECOGNIZED BY INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE CANADA?


International Experience Canada (IEC) is a program that allows young foreign nationals the opportunity to travel to and work in Canada. In order to participate in the IEC program, you must come from a country that has an agreement with Canada to apply for an IEC work permit. Alternatively, you may use a recognized organization.


Recognized Organizations (ROs) offer support and advice to travellers; they can also help you plan your trip and find work in Canada. Recognized Organizations are private companies that charge a fee for their services. They are, however, authorized by the government. Canada has agreements with over 30 countries and territories. Listed below are all of the ROs approved by the Canadian government.
