THE DETAILS

Job Placement

We have developed relationships with several companies throughout Canada to ensure we find you the ideal job.  You are given the opportunity to learn about our employers, their locations, and the jobs they are offering.   During the application process, you will complete a Job Preference Form listing your top choices of employers, jobs and locations to assist our placement team in finding the right match.  We guarantee your gross weekly income will average $300 to $600 CAD or more per week for 30 - 40 hours per week. You will receive normal rostered days off which will allow you plenty of time to see the sights.

Visa Assistance

CCUSA’s licensed Canadian Immigration Attorney will assist you with applying for the appropriate visa for Canada.  The visa process will depend on the job and location of the job you will be applying for, but you will be directed every step of the way.

Travel Assistance

Your local CCUSA office will put you in touch with their preferred travel agent to ensure you get the most competitive airline flights available.

Travel Insurance

You are required to obtain comprehensive travel insurance for a minimum of three months.   If your employer does not provide insurance after three months, you will be required to purchase insurance for longer than three months.  You have the option of purchasing a CCUSA insurance plan, so you are safely covered while you are travelling and working in Canada. The fees involved vary based on length and type of coverage you choose.  Check with your CCUSA office for more details.

Arrival Assistance

When you arrive in Canada, you will be provided two nights’ accommodation in your arrival city.  This will give you the opportunity to adjust to the new time zone, see the sites and organize your employment documents.  CCUSA will provide you detailed instructions on obtaining your Social Insurance Number and opening a Canadian bank account.  From there, you will be given travel instructions to your final destination.

Accommodations

Either your employer or Work Adventures Canada (WAC) will help you find accommodations during your contract. Many employers accustomed to hiring Temporary Foreign Workers usually provide staff housing for a small fee.   

Support

CCUSA will offer support and resources through every step of the process.  You will have access to our WAC private Facebook group to keep you connected with WAC participants all over the world and in Canada. You will have access to our exclusive interview, job hunting and resume tips to give you the competitive edge needed to get the job you want.  You will have a number to call that gives you 24/7 support in case of emergencies or for just ordinary questions.  You will never feel alone!
