Canada Immigration News from the CIC press release released on 23/05/2023. New arrangement expands work opportunities for Canadian and South Korean youth 
Good day ladies and gentlemen, this is IRC news and I am Joy Stephen, an authorized Canadian Immigration practitioner bringing out this special edition of Immigration news from CIC press release, . This news was released by the government on 23/05/2023. I am coming to you from the Polinsys studios in Cambridge, Ontario. Today is the 24/05/2023 
The Government of Canada is committed to strengthening ties with South Korea, a key partner for Canada in the Indo-Pacific, as we mark the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between our two countries this year. 
Today, Ali Ehsassi, Member of Parliament for Willowdale, on behalf of the Honourable Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, highlighted the signing of a new Canada–South Korea Youth Mobility Arrangement. Under this arrangement, youth from the two countries will have more options when applying for international work and travel opportunities in each other’s respective country through International Experience Canada (IEC) or the South Korean equivalent. 
The new arrangement features a number of improvements over the existing memorandum of understanding signed in 1995: 
The eligibility age will increase from 18–30 to 18–35. 
Two new streams—International Co-op (Internship) and Young Professionals—will be added to complement the existing Working Holiday category. 
Most youth will also have the option to participate twice in the program—each time for up to 24 months. 
The Government of Canada anticipates implementing the new arrangement in 2024. It will open up new opportunities for future work and travel, and further build on our countries’ people-to-people ties while improving labour market access for Canadian and South Korean youth.
