Working Holiday Visa

With a growing number of young adults and adults deciding to take time off work or to take a break before starting college, many look into various destinations worldwide to explore and create their own adventures. The Working Holiday visa is just what the doctor ordered!

With a Working Holiday, you can enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience by traveling and working in Canada for up to 12-24 months. This temporary immigration program is available to people from all over the world between the ages of 18-35.

The two major benefits of this program are the freedom to spend a year abroad exploring a new country and its rich landscape, and the opportunity to gain work experience while doing so. Many people take up jobs in the entertainment and hospitality industries, but there are numerous different options to choose from.

What is the pool?
To be included in the pool you must qualify for one of the specific immigration programs listed under Express Entry. You must also score a minimum of 67 points on your immigration profile. Points are awarded for educational and professional qualifications, work experience, age, language ability, and more. The Canadian government selects the most suitable candidates from the pool and issues them with an official invitation (known as ITA) to become Canadian residents.
How many points do I need to get selected?
The Express Entry system uses what it called the Comprehensive Ranking System, a formula that takes into account your education, skills and experience, those of your husband/wife or partner, and whether you have a specific job offer. These factors go to build up your score out of a possible maximum of 1200. As mentioned, the higher the points you score, the greater the possibility to be selected from the pool.
How long does it take to move to Canada?
The idea of starting a new life in Canada is very exciting. But please be prepared that getting selected for an immigration program takes time. This is why the Express Entry program is extremely popular - the Canadian government aims to select candidates within 6 months. Time may significantly vary between immigration programs; the individual process of each program, government policies, the complexity of your case, and more, may affect the time it would take you to move to Canada.
Are there any goverment fees?
Like many other countries worldwide the Canadian government charges fees for the processing of immigration entries. Depending on the specific program you entered, the size and age of your family, and more – you may need a few hundred to several thousand Canadian dollars. Please note that all government fees are non-refundable. This is one of many reasons you should prepare well for your immigration process, gain as much knowledge as you can, and if possible, seek help from professionals in this field.
