International Experience Canada: Extend your participation or change your work permit

COVID-19: workers changing jobs or employers

You may not need to wait until your new employer-specific work permit arrives to start a new job or work for a new employer. If you’re eligible, you may start working after you get an approval email.

You can only extend your participation or make changes to your International Experience Canada (IEC) work permit in very specific situations.

Why do you want to extend your participation or change your IEC work permit?

  • My job has been extended
  • I want to change employers
  • The expiry date on my work permit is wrong
  • I got a new passport
  • I need to remove medical restrictions
  • I’ve extended my health insurance
  • Other
