Default International Experience Canada - question about age calculation

Hi,

This might seem like a pretty basic question - but how do they calculate the age requirements for IEC? For UK applicants, is it up to and including 35 years of age, or applicants who are already 35 are not eligible any more?

Also, if a person is born for example in June 1978, and they apply for IEC in January 2013 - they haven't turned technically 35 yet - but 2013-1978 = 35. So from the point of view of authorities, are they 34 or 35?

I have seen various authorities calculating the age both ways in different countries - that's why I'm asking.

Thanks

For UK applicants, it's up to age 31 (only Irish citizens get up to age 35 at the moment) and they must be 30 or under on the day they apply.

HTH.

It's always been different rules for different countries (for example, Aussies get 2 years rather than one), it's a reciprocal arrangement between each government.

Having said that, it's only just changed for the Irish, so you never know, they might do the same for the UK soon!

Cheers. I can see the UK government not wanting a similar reciprocal arrangement or it may cause a greater exodus from the UK
