Step 7: POE

  • IRCC will deliver a “Correspondence Letter” to your GCKey account. This is the work permit approval you’re waiting for.
  • Yay! Congrats! 
  • The POE is the approval of the Working Holiday application. It is officially called Port of Entry (POE) Letter of Introduction. It is a letter that you will be issued a work permit at the Canadian border if you meet all the requirements. 

You can find a lot more information on the POE > here <

Make sure to print this letter, or save it on the PC in three places, because the POE will automatically disappear from the account after some time. It is the most important document in the whole application process. Without this POE letter, there is no work permit at the border in Canada.

You have 12 months to travel to Canada to activate the work permit
