What is Work Adventures Canada

Canada has long been a popular destination for many international students and young adventure seekers from around the world. Each year thousands of people take advantage of the IEC (Working Holiday Program), SAWP (Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program), Temporary Foreign Worker Visa and Study Permits. Working in Canada offers international work experience and amazing travel opportunities. It allows individuals to grow their professional network, expand their skills and make new friends.

We have a few different programs for you to choose from depending on the type of job you are looking for, your experience, the length of time you want to work in Canada, your personal interests and eligibility.
