The Canada working holiday visa is a program also known as International Experience Canada (IEC). Every year there is a quota agreed between the participating countries. This regulates the number of Canadian working holiday visas available. Being one of the accepted candidates will allow you to live, travel, and work in the country for a period of 12 months.

Important for the Canadian IEC – Quota Places

Last year working holiday program spaces for both Ireland and the UK were sold out in a matter of minutes. Therefore, it is very important that you are prepared as much as possible when the program opens. Visa First team of experienced visa professionals will take care of the paperwork around your Canadian Working Holiday visa starting from informing you when the program is about to be open, assisting you with the preparation of your IEC application and fully processing your CIC work permit. 

Requirements Overview

  • Holding a passport from an eligible country (see requirements tab).
  • Age limit: 18-30 years inclusive (up to 35 for Ireland citizens) at the time your application is received.
  • Clean criminal record – Canadian Immigration Authority will check your criminal history for any serious crimes, convictions, or restrictions to enter foreign countries.
  • Provide proof of sufficient funds (C$2,500) to support your stay in the country.
  • You will be required to undergo additional medical examinations if you are willing to work in the health services field occupations, primary or secondary school, teaching or childcare.
