Within the last two weeks, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has issued a fewer number of invitations under the International Experience Canada program. Although IRCC has been inviting around 5,000 candidates for the last few months, this figure has dropped to just above 1,000. Despite the Government of Canada has not made any announcements on this issue, it is assumed that this may be due to the Government’s aim to reduce the backlog of nearly two million applications in all immigration streams.
