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 2017 season

The numbers on this page are updated on Fridays.

The first rounds of invitations won’t start until the end of November 2016.

Where are you from?

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.

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.
