Why a working visa?

Travelling can be incredibly expensive, so by applying for a temporary working visa in Canada you can fund your own trip. Not only does it help you to earn money whilst you explore a whole new country, it also allows you to encounter various experiences that you otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford.

You can also gain a range of new skills and knowledge by working in a different country; absorbing their working culture and taking that back to future careers and roles within your home country.

What kind of jobs can I do?

You may take up any type of job in Canada on this visa. The type of job that you take on whilst you are living and working in Canada will really depend on where you decide to base yourself during your time there. There are a number of different job opportunities scattered through the cities and the more rural areas too.

Basing yourself in the city will allow you to work in more standard roles, i.e, restaurants, cafes’, bars and shops. This means that you can use skills and experience that you already have to find and secure work. Whilst this is a great way to meet people and be social, you may find that you want something a little different. If this is true for you then why not head out into some of the more rural areas and see what type of jobs are out there? Organic farms need fruit pickers and ranches may need some cowboys to help out. The possibilities are endless! Complete our assessment to find out if you would qualify.

 

What makes it so great?

Working and travelling through Canada is a great way to spend a year or two. It is a stunning place full of amazing people and culture.

If you solely travel the area then you are likely to spend most of your time meeting other tourists. You may never really get to see the real people that call Canada their home. By choosing a base and working, you can meet new people, uncover the real Canada and develop a greater understanding of its amazing culture!
