International Experience Canada Work Permit Program Opens For 2023

Canada has announced the opening of the 2023 season of the International Experience Canada (IEC) work permit program. Invitations to apply are already being issued to candidates in the pool, with 90,000 young people set to come to the country via the program this year. Canada hopes the expansion of the program, announced in December, will help fill labour shortages. “Our government supports international youth to work and travel in Canada, effectively helping employers find the workers they need,” said Immigration Minister Sean Fraser, who announced the IEC 2023 opening on Monday January 9. “By giving youth the opportunity to gain international travel and work experience, we are strengthening our economy and creating a win-win solution for everyone involved.
