Hi there :)

I've been approved for my IEC visa and plan on leaving around May time next year ( a while off I know - need to save the £££ and also complete my Masters).

I was thinking of starting this thread for those who have either:

a) been approved and are planning to go
b) those who are already in Canada (if there are any)
c) those who've been in the past and can share their experiences.

I've spent two years in Australia in the past so not a complete newbie to the travelling game but unfortunately because the IEC visas are so few and difficult to get hold of, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of information out there (unlike say Aus/NZ WHV).

Myself specifically, I'd like to meet anyone who's looking at heading over there at around a similar time and also if anyone can give a hint as to what the job situation is like over there? (Are they fairly easy to find if you're looking for temporary/seasonal/hospitality/retail work? How about more career-minded jobs?)

Please feel free to join in with any and all info you might have and be able to share!

Rach :)

I have just been accepted for the whv also b which is very exciting!!! Not 100% sure of plans when to go etc as kinda ignored visa application until found out I had been accepted! - as you no had to get one.

Anyway I agree not a lot of information. Random question does your acceptance letter have a entry date requirement on it?
Where you thinking of heading?
