Can I participate in International Experience Canada more than once?
You may be able to participate in International Experience Canada (IEC) more than once. It depends on the agreement between Canada and your country of citizenship.
If you're allowed to participate a second time, you may have to wait a specific period of time before doing so. This waiting period applies to citizens of the following countries:
The waiting period starts after your first IEC work permit expires. If you apply for an IEC work permit before the waiting period ends, we'll refuse your application.
Check the eligibility requirements to find out:
- if you can participate a second time, and
- how long you need to wait before participating a second time (if this applies to you).
