“I can say it was an unforgettable experience. I can highly recommend it. It's a way to see more of this beautiful country Canada.” - Cecile Villiger, Working Holiday in Canada
If you’re a Danish citizen and are between the ages of 18 and 35, your next life adventure could take you just about anywhere! Why not travel and work in Canada through International Experience Canada?
Travel and work holidays are a great way to:
The work portion of your trip lets you earn money while in Canada so that you can fund your travels during your extended stay. Although you may not make enough for savings, you could have enough for side trips and accommodation while you’re in Canada.
Canada has an arrangement with Denmark that enables the Government of Canada to issue work permits to Danish citizens who wish to travel and work in Canada for up to one year through International Experience Canada.
The Working Holiday category is designed for Danish citizens who intend to travel in Canada and who wish to find temporary paid employment to help pay for their stay (maximum 12 months).
To be eligible for the Working Holiday category, you must:
Admissibility (for work permit)
Every person who enters Canada as a temporary resident (visitor, worker or student) must meet general requirements for temporary entry as set out by Canada's Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and Regulations.
At any time during the processing of your application, Citizenship and Immigration Canada may request additional information or documents to determine your admissibility.
As a Danish citizen, you have two Working Holiday options:
Independent Travel in Canada
Have your dream year-long holiday in Canada already mapped out?
Please note: International Experience Canada does not help with financing, travel plans or your job search.
