Applicants who received an Invitation to Apply (ITA) can still complete and submit their work permit applications. Those who did not receive an ITA can create a new profile when the Government re-opens pools for the next season, using their current accounts and GCkey. In 2021, Canada issued 30,372 ITAs under the IEC Program.
