Work Canada

Job description

Who said an office had to have four walls? The view of the slopes from your ski job in Whistler or window onto the Pacific Ocean from your hospitality job in Vancouver also looks pretty sweet right now!

With visa support, a pre-arranged summer or ski season job, and arrival week to get you set up with everything you need to hit the ground/slopes running - our Work Canada program is the ultimate way to earn money, enhance your CV and experience living in one of the most breathtaking countries on the planet.

The job bit: For peace of mind that you can start earning as soon as you land, our Work Canada Ultimate program includes a pre-arranged 4-6 month seasonal job. Plus, nationwide job support for the rest of your visa - usually 1-2 years depending on your nationality.

Our Global Jobs team source and vet hundreds of employers across Canada who are looking to take on working holidaymakers right now. Including working with some of the top summer and ski resorts in Canada, such as Four Seasons Whistler, Panorama Resort and Blue Mountain Resort.

Typical jobs include ski attendant, lift host, spa attendant, line cook, chef, front of house, receptionist, bar staff, barista, retail assistant, sales and more.

The money bit: All roles pay at least the minimum wage (between CAD $13-15 an hour depending on the province you're working in), with trained positions such as ski instructors and chefs earning even more. Many of the roles are in hospitality, so can include tips, lift passes and discounted staff accommodation - the best way to save money and meet people.

The visa bit: If you're from the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Germany or Ireland and are aged 18-35, you can apply for a working holiday (IEC) visa that allows you to work in Canada for up to 23 months (depending on your nationality). If you're from the UK, you must be aged 18-30. The application process for Canada can be a bit confusing, but our team speak fluent visa so will guide you every step of the way.
