IEC announces its Last Round of Invitations for the Year 2023

International Experience Canada (IEC) 2023 pools are now closed as it sent its last round of invitations on Monday, October 23, 2023. Over 2,967 invitations were sent to apply for work permits as at October 23, 2023 bringing it to a total of 131,541 work permit invitations sent by IEC since January, 2023 under the Working Holiday Visa Category, Young Professional and International (Co-op) Internship categories.

All invited candidates can still complete their applications, however profiles of applicants that did not receive any invitation in this season will be deleted from the pool.

The pool for 2024 will probably open in December of 2023 and applicants will be able to create a new profile. The GCkey account of candidates in pool for 2023 will still be active at that time so it will not be necessary to register for a new GCkey or make a new account for IEC 2024 season.
