How can I prove I’m a resident of a country when applying to International Experience Canada (IEC)?
You may need to prove you’re a resident of a country or territory when you apply to IEC.
To do this, provide us with your mailing or permanent address in that country or territory. You don’t have to be in that country or territory when you apply.
Example: Elsa is a resident of Sweden, but she’s temporarily studying in France. She just needs to give us her address in Sweden.
If you’re an Italian citizen, you’ll also need to provide a residence certificate (certificato di residenza). Make sure you include a certified English or French translation of the certificate. Upload the certificate and translation in the Optional documents slot at the bottom of the Document Checklist page in your account.
