Rounds of invitations – International Experience Canada

We will regularly invite eligible candidates from the IEC pools to apply for a work permit. These are called rounds of invitations.

The number of candidates invited to apply during each round varies. Rounds will take place until there are no more spots available or the IEC season closes.

Schedule for the 2017 season

The numbers on this page are normally updated on Fridays.

Where are you from?

The quotas for this country have been re-distributed. This gives applicants a better chance to be invited in their category of choice.

As of Monday, October 17, 2016, at 10:00 am Eastern Daylight Time, this pool is open. If you’re eligible, you can submit your profile now.

Final rounds of invitations for the 2017 IEC season will be from September 25 to 29. Pools will then close for the season.

Dates of rounds of invitations

The quota and dates of the first and final rounds of invitations will be updated, as this information becomes available.

We will provide at least five days notice before the:

  • first round of invitations, and
  • final round of invitations.

Several rounds of invitations may take place between the first and last rounds.

If you are in a pool, you could receive an Invitation to Apply any time after the date of the first round of invitations.

During the final round of invitations, we plan to invite enough candidates to meet the quota for the season. Sometimes, a large number of:

  • candidates decline their Invitations to Apply,
  • candidates let their Invitations to Apply expire, or
  • applicants’ work permit applications are refused.

To meet the quota in these cases, we may issue a very small number of Invitations to Apply after the final round takes place.
