The Programme

Having chosen to be based in Vancouver or Toronto, you'll touchdown in either west or east Canada and will have time to get to grips with your surroundings as you spend your first couple of nights right in the city centre.

Our team will help you with all the practicalities; getting you signed up to our jobs database, making sure you're hooked up with a Canadian phone SIM, helping you sort out accommodation following your first two nights, going through your CV with you, and helping you prepare for interviews, as well as introducing you to new friends, showing you around the city, and getting you involved with some fun optional activities. They'll be there to advise, support, and guide you as and when you need them for the duration of your stay in Canada. 

Excursions and Activities

As well as all the practical stuff, you'll get to have fun and make new friends at a whole heap of social events, including:

  • Pub nights
  • Curling tournaments
  • Canoeing trips
  • Hockey games
  • Cultural excursions and trips

Types of Work

Our jobs teams in Vancouver and Toronto are the best port of call to find work, whether you’re looking for seasonal work, flexible hours, or something in a specific industry.

Some examples of roles that are most commonly available are:

Hospitality - front of house, kitchen, restaurant, events
Tourism - ski resort jobs, housekeeping, lift operators, guest services
Retail - head office staff, sales, warehouse, floor staff
Office - admin roles, customer services, human resources and more!

Free Time

Depending whereabouts you're based in Canada, activities can range from east to west. Toronto, in the east, is great for visiting museums, various gardens, and to get to Niagara Falls. Vancouver, in the west, is perfect for water-top activities, spotting monuments and statues, and being bowled over by beautiful scenery at close by national parks. But wherever you find yourself in Canada, you'll never be stuck for things to do.


Make the most of your time in this gorgeous place by covering as much ground as possible – whether you've got a couple of days each week to explore your local area, or plan to work your way from east coast to west. We've got some great tours that could help you make your time here count. Check out our Canada trips page for some inspiration.
