On October 4, 2019, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) held the last invitations round for all categories and pools of the International Experience Canada (IEC) for the 2019 season. In the last week of the season, IRCC invited 738 candidates to apply for a Work Permit in the IEC. In this round, Canada issued 229 Invitations to Apply (ITA) to Working Holiday candidates from Australia; 202 ITAs to candidates from Ireland; 65 invitations to candidates from New Zealand, and 46 ITAs to candidates from Japan. The remaining 196 ITAs were issued to candidates from the other pools and participating countries. All old profiles will be removed and candidates who were not invited in 2019 will have to create a new profile when the pools reopen again. GCkey accounts of the candidates will remain valid. In total, in 2019 Canada invited 136,480 ITAs under the IEC. The 2020 season may reopen in late December 2019 or early January 2020.
