HOW TO GET A CANADIAN WORKING HOLIDAY VISA

One of the most popular quotes in this day and age is ‘all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy’; this is simply because it justifies the need for people to take a break from hard work and simply relax and have fun. One of the many ways to take a break off work is by organizing a working holiday. Working holidays are all the rage, affordable accommodation is hard to come by and sometimes backpackers need a little extra cash to cover costs.

Most people are not used to hearing working and holiday in the same phrase simply because you leave work to go on trips but this does not have to be the case. If you want to let your holiday in Canada finance it self completely, then here is what you need to know.

A specific Visa

First and foremost you will need to apply for a special visa that will not only allow you to go into the country and travel freely but will also allow you to work there legally for the period of time you will be there. Canada is one of the few countries that give out working holiday permits alongside some European countries such as Ireland and the United Kingdom.

Proper planning

You have options in this case; one, you can decide to do the planning yourself or you could decide to hire a travel agency to do the planning for you. However, if you are going on a working holiday am sure that you are trying to save as much as you can so it is best to take time and do the planning yourself in order to maximize on your savings.


The main disadvantage of doing everything yourself is the massive paper work you will have to do; here is where having a travel agent is advantageous because they can do that for you. In the end it’s all about what you prefer.

Health Insurance

Quality overseas insurance is quite important before you begin your working holiday. As much as we don’t like it, accidents do happen despite which part of the globe you are in. In most cases the insurance plan you have in your home country will not be able to cover you while you are on working holiday in Canada.
These are the main things you should be aware of before you decide to go for a working holiday in Canada. Of course there are other things to be put into consideration but once you understand these you can make a decision.
