CCUSA: Work Experience Canada Programme

Work Experience Canada is a programme of CCUSA which provides Canadian employers with qualified international staff for positions that are temporary or seasonal in nature during the winter and summer months. 

We are currently recruiting participants from 7 different countries to work in Canada on the Working Holiday Visa giving 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 people age 18 – 35 years old.  

CCUSA is one of the most respected exchange programs around the world.  Our friendly, dedicated office staff have years of experience in international staff recruitment and program administration.  We offer participants from Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, The Netherlands, Croatia, Poland and Czech Republic and the United Kingdom the opportunity to work and travel throughout Canada for up to 24 months. 

We carefully interview and select our participants, choosing only those who are mature, motivated and possess a multitude of skills.  They pass through our selective screening process before being accepted to the program.

CCUSA international staff come informed and prepared.  We provide our participants with extensive information before their arrival on the exact steps they need to take to get ready for their new job in Canada.
