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.


2016 quota was announced this December and new applicants are urged to apply as soon as possible due to the big interest. Register with us and start your IEC application!


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 this year. 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.
