Default Hello Hello

Hello everyone,

discovered this forum today and here I am...

I'm originally from Croatia, currently living in the UK but am planning on moving to Canada at the end of this year/beginning of next one.

I'd appreciate any tips regarding Canadian immigration.

Thanks!

Hello G-Mo,

At the moment I'm 25, work as a carer/personal assistant and work part-time as a customer service for a social network.
My educational background is in travel and tourism and I have a certificate t teach English. I have another post in Canada topic, where I wrote a bit more about myself but can't link to it as I'm a new member!


Thank you!

You should take a look at the IEC visa as you are under 35. Given your residence status, I'm not sure if you need to apply via UK or Croatia:

Travel and Work in Canada | Temporary Work Visa For Work Holidays in Canada for Students and Youth | International Experience Canada

Hi, thanks for your suggestion! I know about it but as this year's quota is full I will have to apply for next year.

The criteria changes from country to country, Aussies get two year visa's and there is no quota

Diff countries get different allowences
