Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is improving how it processes International Experience Canada (IEC) work permits by expanding the use of automation technology. A new tool will help process IEC work permit applications by triaging applications based on their complexity and approving eligibility for routine applications. This will improve efficiency by making decisions faster for some applicants. It will also support the growth of IEC and facilitate work and travel for international youth in Canada.
International Experience Canada (IEC) gives youth the opportunity to travel and work in Canada for up to 2 years. There are 3 different kinds of work and travel experiences available – Working Holiday, Young Professionals and International Co-op (Internship).
