Youth Mobility Agreement

“This agreement aims to create new opportunities for vocational training” Note: The Canada-Mexico Youth Mobility Agreement is being revised. As a result, invitations to apply are not currently sent. Under the bilateral youth mobility agreement, Canadian and Italian youth can participate for 24 months in a 12-month work and travel program in which applicants can participate twice. Canada has formal youth mobility agreements with 36 foreign countries and territories, including many European countries, in addition to other countries such as Australia, Chile, Mexico, Taiwan and Ukraine. Canada supports youth mobility through the International Experience Canada (IEC), which manages bilateral youth mobility agreements. These rules allow Canadians to travel and work in partner countries and territories and allow international youth to do the same in Canada. Business France, the French agency for the development and promotion of business exports, manages the VIE programme. Young French people who participate in VIE do not receive a salary or a salary, but a scholarship or a monthly allowance paid directly to them in France by Business France. This assistance helps life participants to cover the cost of living in their host country while maintaining housing relations with France.

Participants must return to France at the end of their mission. Business France also ensures that life participants will not place a financial burden on their host country by providing housing and covering health costs. The International Experience Canada (IEC) program facilitates the process of young people gaining valuable international work experience and travelling abroad. Although the COVID 19 pandemic has resulted in a series of temporary measures, including travel restrictions, this agreement with Italy will open up new opportunities for future work and travel as soon as conditions permit. At that time, only youth with up-to-date and valid job offers will be able to travel to Canada under the CIS program. The second objective is to take into account the interests and needs of member governments in terms of youth mobility and youth cards. The work programme is designed to generate and mobilize knowledge on these topics, exchange best practices and thus propose better political solutions (seminars, workshops, symposia, etc.). These activities are followed by publications of best practices and recommendations on specific actions to member states and national AECA member organisations. The European Platform for Learning Mobility is one of the activities of the partnership between the European Commission and the Council of Europe in the areas of youth policy, youth research and socio-educational animation.

“The partial agreement aims to develop the card system for young people, particularly at European level in the interests of young people […] In order to facilitate their mobility and access to the various goods and services necessary for their personal and cultural development. The partial agreement on youth mobility by youth card was launched in 1991 at the initiative of Catherine LalumiĆ©re, then Secretary General of the Council of Europe, following the Council of Europe`s conference of youth ministers in Lisbon, Portugal.
