International Exchange Programs (IEP) Reviews


I first heard about IEP through a friend, who had previously taken part in their program and highly recommended them. In 2016 I signed up with IEP to help me get a job on their Work Canada program. It was the best decision I have ever made. They helped me with everything, from getting a visa to making an international resume. They were always really quick to reply to emails and were great to chat to on the phone during office hours! No question was too small or stupid and they really reassured you and encouraged you, and of course told you how amazing your trip was going to be. IEP interviews are set up with potential employers in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney. I live in Perth, so I flew to Melbourne for my interview. IEP provides you with a great package of information on all the potential employers so you get a great idea of what will be the best fit for you! Once you have done your interviews and you have picked your resort of choice, they help you with booking flights, getting connecting buses, travel insurance, setting you up with other people going to your resort and they sign you up with a group called SWAP. SWAP is an organisation that helps you get ready for living in Canada including setting up a bank account, getting your SIN number, cars and licenses etc. I have been in Canada for a year and a half now and they will still help me out with any problems I have! I recently had to update my travel insurance and they helped me with that too, two years after signing up for their program! If you're from Australia or New Zealand looking for a job in Canada, you seriously can't go wrong. These guys are the best!

Hands down best experience

IEP is by far the most helpful company to get you over to Canada and kick start your working holiday! They take care of everything and arrange a job suit for you before you leave your home country. They’ve been helpful since I’ve been in Canada and have been sure to let me know that they’re always there to help with any questions I may have or any assistance I may need. My time in Panorama ski resort has been nothing short of amazing and I’m now sticking around for summer I’m loving it that much!! This is an experience of a lifetime and I’d encourage anyone who is eligible to just do it! You will not regret it!!
