GENERAL OVERVIEW

Work Experience Canada is CCUSA’s latest program to be launched which provides Canadian employers with qualified international staff for positions that are temporary or seasonal during the winter and summer months.  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 a work permit allowing international staff to legally work in Canada for up to 24 months.  This visa is issued to young adults age 18 – 35 years old.
