Help! I am 29 (nearly 30) and seeking an opportuniuty to work and travel in Canada for a year. I have a good degree, a post grad diploma and good work experience to offer - but I can't seem to crack the visa jungle

From what I can gather from the Canadian Embassy website I can apply for the youth mobility programme during my 30th year. What it doesn't tell me - and what other sites dont seem to have info on - is:
- Are there any restrictions on the type of work I can get?
- Do I need a job offer before I go? (most info says no)
- Are there restrictions on the maximum length of temporary job I can take e.g 6 nmonths

The main problem seem sto be where to find reliable up to date information - I hope you can help! Any suggestion welcome.


Thanks

Emilie

I think what your looking for is something along the lines of the BUNAC programme. If you google BUNAC their website should come up, its got a great FAQ section and lots of good info, hope this helps!

I am applying as well! Have you found what you were looking for yet or do you need any other information? I think the website is pretty much complete and you should find answers to your questions in the FAQ section!


Good luck,
Deb
