Open Work Permits for Youth and Adults 18-35

This week the government has announced eligibility for work permits for youth and adults 18-35, under the international experience work permit category, if they are nationals of partner countries.  Processing of the work permit takes approximately six weeks.  Eligibility criteria is minimal and it is an excellent opportunity for youth to receive an open work permit to work in Canada.  For those with post-secondary education, seeking to immigrate to Canada, having Canadian work experience will also assist with eligibility for permanent residence to Canada.
