The pandemic has had a significant impact on our ability to travel and work abroad. The impacts on youth travel are likely to be felt long after travel restrictions are lifted. This has kept young Canadians from gaining valuable immersive intercultural experiences. Join International Experience Canada for a virtual workshop on overcoming the barriers to youth work abroad experiences post-COVID.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Understanding of the youth mobility arrangements available through IEC
  • Identification of the post-COVID-19 barriers to youth mobility
  • Opportunities to restore youth confidence in travel abroad post-COVID
