Working Holiday Visa Program

Working Holiday Visa Program
Have you heard about Canada's Working Holiday Visa program? Simply put, it allows you to travel to Canada and at the same time you will be allowed to work for any jobs depending on on what you want to do and how hard you want to look for a job.

Canada's Working Holiday Visa Program is part of an exchange agreement between Canada and selected countries through which their citizens between the ages of 18 and 35 (some countries limit it to 30) can have a travel, work and life experience in another country. Citizens of participating countries will then have an opportunity to enjoy an extended holiday in Canada while undertaking temporary casual work to supplement their holiday funds.

Unfortunately, it does not apply to Philippine passport holders.

This is applicable to Australia, Belgium, Chile, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Rep., Latvia, New Zealand, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Spain, Switzerland and United Kingdom.

Canadian Working Holiday Program is administered by the Canadian Visa Office responsible for each participating countries.
