Picture your summers filled with paddling on emerald blue waters and your winters atop snowcapped peaks, sipping boozy hot chocolates and skiing on the freshest powder.

We offer the complete package and, most importantly, score you job interviews with awesome local businesses so you can stay longer and fund all your Canadian adventures!

We know that one of the elements of a successful working holiday is to find local, seasonal employment to use as a means to fund your travels around the country. We also know that only certain businesses and industries will even consider hiring a traveller. We develop and maintain partnerships with hundreds of local businesses that do hire travellers, so you can save yourself time, money and stress with our Guaranteed Interview Before Arrival* and Unlimited Extra Interviews* to make your working holiday the best experience it can be.

Completely immerse yourself in a new culture, meet lifelong friends and, best of all, break away from your usual routine back home.

Just in case it’s not clear already, we’re not an employment or recruitment agency, so please don’t book with us if that’s what you’re looking for. We sell and organise amazing international travel experiences for the purpose of cultural exchange & education. If a trip has a paid work option, this is not mandatory to do and is there as a means to fund your travels only, and no fee is charged by us for this component. All payments you make are for travel and local support services. If you’re still confused, please get in touch.


Trip details

Our Working Holiday in Canada trip is designed to get you set up abroad as quickly and safely as possible.

Simply, we're here to ensure your transition to working abroad in Canada is seamless.

Arrive into Canada with the confidence that you are many steps ahead of every other traveller starting off on their working holiday journey. You’ll have more time to focus on you and planning your adventures around Canada! With the hard work already done, you can relax into your first few days in Canada, see the epic sights and meet new friends before starting your first job opportunity. Our local Canadian team will support you throughout the entire journey and when it’s time for something new, feel comfortable taking off and exploring Canada knowing we’ve got your back when you need your next job interview.

When you work in Canada you become more than just a tourist. Spend more of your time exploring, seeing the breathtaking landscapes and road tripping with mates instead of sweating the logistical stuff. We’re here to save you time, money, stress and even the risk of returning home early! You can only get a Canadian working holiday visa once, so make your time count. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live and work in Canada and there will be heaps of ‘pinch me, I’m really here’ moments along the way.

Requirements

What extra costs will I have?

Flights, travel insurance, visa, criminal background check, souvenirs & spending money.


Trip itinerary

The beauty of this trip is that you have the freedom to create your own adventure and you can do it however you please. But, for a rough idea, this is how most travellers spend their first few days:

Day 1

Once you’ve touched down at Vancouver Airport, your own private driver will be waiting for you outside. They’ll take you into downtown Vancouver to your initial accommodation at a top-rated hostel in the famous ‘West End’ where we’ll cover the first 4 nights for you. Relax, make some new friends and settle in!

Trip location

Arrive in Vancouver so that you can attend your orientation and meet our local team at our Canadian office. After that, you’re free to roam as you please!

Top tier service! Would travel with them again. They have been very helpful with my flight and living conditions. The people on the phone have been very patient and my meeting at the Global headquarters went very smoothly. Can't say enough good things about this travel agency.
