IEC Working Holiday Program Temporary Halt
To manage the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), Canada has put in place travel restrictions that impact work and travel with International Experience Canada (IEC).
The working holiday program for international young workers to come to Canada has been temporarily delayed. This will impact workers already in Canada who need to renew, and new applicants to the IEC working holiday program.
You do have options. Ackah Law has some strategies we think will help you extend your working holiday work permit status while this temporary halt is in place so you can remain in Canada.

IEC Working Holiday Program
Canada's IEC Working Holiday program participants receive Open Work Permits that allow them to work anywhere in the host country to support their travels.
You can earn money to fund your vacation in Canada with temporary work; the type of Work Permit you get for Working Holiday is an open work permit which allows you to work for any employer in Canada, except for an employer who is listed as failing to comply with work conditions or an employer who offers striptease, erotic dance, escort services or erotic massages.
