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. We will issue more invitations during periods of higher demand. Rounds will take place until there are no more spots available.

Schedule for the 2016 season

The number of spots available and invitations issued to date are updated on Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time.

Where are you from?

If you are eligible, you can submit a free profile to this pool at any time as of December 7, 2015.

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.

Your chances of getting an Invitation to Apply

The Working Holiday category is very popular. This means there are usually more candidates than spots available. All candidates in the pool have an equal chance of being invited. There is also a possibility that you will not receive an Invitation to Apply before the end of the season.
