Canada is described as a paradise of the far west owing to the picturesque sceneries and booming work opportunities. Besides that it is a major tourist hub that attracts global citizens particularly youth. The Canada working holiday program provides an opportunity for youth from select countries to work while travelling in Canada.
The Canadian Working Holiday Visa programme is called the International Experience Canada. IEC is designed for individuals between the age 18-30 or 18-35 depending on their nationality. The duration of the visa is 12 months or 24 months depending on your citizenship. The IEC is in accordance with the reciprocal agreements between Canada and different countries of the world. Citizens of countries with a bilateral youth mobility arrangement with Canada are eligible for IEC work permits. The IEC visa allows youth to travel and work in any part of Canada during the validity of the visa. IRCC typically processes complete applications within eight weeks.
