GENERAL OVERVIEW

Work Adventures Canada is one of CCUSA’s newest programs, which provides Canadian employers with qualified international staff for positions that are temporary or seasonal.  Our international staff come to you with a “Working Holiday Visa”, which enables young people the opportunity to work while they travel.  It allows them to experience day-to-day life so they can gain a deeper understanding of the culture and people. The Working Holiday Visa is an open work permit allowing international staff to legally work in Canada for up to 24 months.  This visa is issued to young adults ages 18 – 35 years old.

You will not need to worry about your CCUSA international staff coming to you unprepared.  They are provided with extensive information before their arrival on the exact steps they need to take to get ready for their new job in Canada. 

Pre-Departure Orientation
CCUSA participants are provided with a one-on-one virtual Pre-departure meeting 5-days prior to their departure.  During this time, CCUSA staff assist them in getting their SIN and Bank Account.  They help answer any questions they might have at the time.  They review their arrival check-list to ensure a smooth entry into Canada and to their new job.   

Social Insurance Number
CCUSA Participants are instructed to apply for their Social Insurance Number (SIN) once they arrive in Canada.  They can locate the nearest Service Canada Center by going online to http://www.servicecanada.gc.ca/tbsc-fsco/sc-hme.jsp?lang=eng.  They will need to have their passport, work permit and employer address with them to apply.  Once they have their SIN, they will be able to open up a bank account in Canada. 

Insurance
All CCUSA participants are covered by a travel insurance policy which covers accidents and illnesses.  Each participant has been provided with an insurance card with policy information, a copy of the insurance policy and access to claim procedures before their departure to Canada.  Should you have any questions regarding the insurance information, please contact CCUSA at 800-999-2267. 

2-week Notice Policy
All Work Experience Canada participants have the right to change jobs while on the Working Holiday Visa.  CCUSA requires that participants work for two weeks prior to providing a mandatory 2-week notice form to their current employer.  We will provide employment assistance to Work Experience Canada participants.
