Work & Travel Canada – The Ultimate Guide

To combine work and travel in Canada is an excellent way to experience this big country. My work and travel guide will show you how to do it.

I know from experience that work and travel across Canada are the best and cheapest adventures ever!

You work for a while and then move on to new places. This teaches you to be flexible and adapt to the Canadian way of life. Working in Canada gives you the opportunity to be part of the local crowd and it helps you to travel on a budget.

You don’t need to be rich to spend a year or two in Canada if you fund your trip with short-term jobs.

Do You Want To Work In Canada But Not Sure Where To Start?

Coming to Canada with a  Working Holiday Visa will give you plenty of opportunities and options how to spend your time. To make it a great experience you have to know what to expect and where to find help if you need it.

Arriving in Canada with a Work Visa Canada is one thing, but you also want to be informed about the job situation and what steps you have to take to find work.

To find work in Canada is not easy,  therefore, it’s good to come prepared!

You need a resume and references to apply for a job, as well as work experience for most jobs. To find work takes time; expect to be busy job hunting and going to interviews.

There are many job opportunities in Canada, especially in the backcountry

I don’t want you to get stuck in Toronto or Vancouver for too long during your work and travel Canada trip. Remember what you came to Canada for; to see the backcountry and to experience Canada’s rugged wilderness and the adventure.

For travellers to get stranded in a big city happens much too often. They get casual work at Starbucks, or in an office or shopping mall during the day, and every night they go out and spend their money in a backpacker bar or pub. A couple of month down the road they have not more cash than what they came with, and they haven’t seen anything of Canada yet.

City life is not cheap, so beware of getting stuck there! Canada has interesting cities, but that’s not what work and travel in Canada are about!

You might not be aware of the opportunities that exist outside the cities. Big cities don’t differ much from country to country; they make it easy for us to adapt and feel safe.

If you venture out of the main cities you will be surprised how many restaurants, motels, stores, have Help Wanted signs in the windows.

When you leave the city you come to realize how different Canada is; that’s where your real work and travel Canada adventure begins. Leave the cities behind, go and see CANADA, work AND travel Canada! Work will be as much of an experience as travel will be.

Do something different from what you do at home! Go and see the country, meet the country folks, work and have fun, it’s worth it.

Work and Travel Canada TentingWhat Kind Of Jobs Are Available

There are plenty of job opportunities for travellers in Canada but sometimes they are not easy to find. Mastering the English language helps. If your English language skills need improvement, you have the possibility to combine your work and travel with a few weeks of language studies at a unique Wilderness Langage School.
