If I am issued a POE Letter but do not use it, will I get a refund?
Your fees are not refundable once we issue your Port of Entry (POE) Letter.
If you choose not to come to Canada:
- this will still count as one IEC participation, and
- you will not get a refund.
If your Letter of Introduction expires and you still want to come to Canada, you may submit your profile again. Check the eligibility criteria for your country of citizenship to find out if you are able to participate more than once.
If you withdraw your work permit application before we issue your POE Letter, your fees will be refunded.
