IENA Made my Dream Internship Possible

9/10

I had already arranged a research internship but had a substantial amount of difficulty obtaining a work permit. Applying through IENA turned out to be a lifesaver and made obtaining a work permit and completing my internship possible when all other avenues failed. The representative I spoke to from IENA was invaluable in helping expedite the process.

How can this program be improved?

I thought that the price was a little high, considering I only needed an organization through which I could go to obtain a work permit. The insurance was helpful, though.

A Humbling Experience

10/10

From being a paraprofessional working with autism to planting trees in unknown lands with a bunch of strangers, my world was flipped upside down. Slept in a tent, black flies destroyed me, and I loved it.

How can this program be improved?

IENA did an amazing job assisting me the whole way to get my work visa in Canada. It was much more helpful than International Experience Canada (IEC), and the staff put up with every and all of my questions. No problems whatsoever.
