Why do a working holiday in Canada?

Canada has become a go-to destination for working holidaymakers who want year-round adventures, liveable cities and decent salaries. Aside from the fact that the national dish is fries covered in cheese and gravy (enough said), Canada offers the perfect work-life balance. Surf in the morning before work, hit the slopes at night after work, and spend your weekends exploring mountains, beaches and lakes.

Now here’s the best bit. You can do all of that on a working holiday visa until you’re 35 –because Canada is just cool like that. And on our Ultimate Canada option, we hook you up with a 4-6 month ski season or summer resort job before you go – because we’re just a bit cool like that.


Get winter wrapped up at our Canada winter job fair.

Canadian working holiday (IEC) visas are open for 2024. For three days only... get hired on the day at our in-person JENZA x BUNAC Canada winter job fair in London, 31 May-2 Jun. Four of our favourite Canada employers – Four Seasons Whistler, Blue Mountain, Panorama and the Fairmont – are jetting in to do face-to-face interviews. There are 200 jobs up for grabs – from servers to ski instructors. Interview slots are filled on a first come first served basis, so book Work Canada now to secure your spot. Based elsewhere in the world or washing your hair that weekend? Virtual interview dates coming soon! Chat to our Jobs team for more info. 

The pools are open!

And with the 18-35 age increase for UK passport holders, the visa pools are set to be busier than ever. The earlier you enter the IEC Canada pools, the more draws your name will be exposed to – increasing your chances of getting a working holiday Canada visa. Meaning you’ll be ready with your visa as soon as employers start hiring. Alternativel, virtual interview dates coming soon.
