We help hook you up with as many job as you want – now and for the two years of your visa


In our eyes, the definition of a dream working holiday job is the one that you don’t have to completely find for yourself. Once booked onto our Work Canada program, you’ll have access to our exclusive employment database – where you can search and apply for jobs across Canada. Can’t find what you’re looking for? Talk to us before you go or drop into our offices in Toronto and Vancouver – for help with everything from printing out copies of your CV to matching you to available jobs and prepping you for interviews.


Our Canada job database is full of employers looking to take on Irish working holidaymakers – with roles from carpenters to chefs, marketing assistants to ski lift operators. Salaries can vary from the minimum wage (between CAD $13-15 an hour depending on the province) to up to $40 an hour for skilled workers. Your IEC visa gives you the freedom to work for different employers or for the same employer for up to two years, giving you the option to take on casual jobs or pursue more long-term positions related to your career or trade.


They said, “We’ve got a job for you when you land with free digs and awesome new friends”. Seasonal work in the mountains is huge in Canada, with year-round opportunities for USIT travellers working in world-class resorts like Four Seasons Whistler or Blue Mountain Resort Ontario. If you’re not sure of your plans when you arrive but know you need a change of scenery; then seasonal work is a great way to earn money, get free accommodation, and have a blast on the slopes/in the après-ski bars. Clever mountains.


We have partners in both Toronto and Vancouver to help you get settled in and find a job. With regular flights to Canada from Ireland, pick a side (East Coast or West Coast) and let’s get down to work.


Read any guide to Vancouver and it will famously say that you ski in the morning and surf in the afternoon. It’s this proximity to natural beauty and healthy attitude that pretty much sums up life in Vancouver. One of the most liveable and beautiful cities in the world, Vancouverites have everything at their fingertips – a world-class farm-to-fork culinary scene, a sophisticated arts and music scene that hosts everything from Shakespeare to Indie festivals, and a milder climate to their East Coast cousin. But don’t be fooled into thinking that Vancouver is all clean living – it definitely has an edge: with a killer craft beer movement and underground live music scene that will rival most big cities.


Canada’s largest city, Toronto is a city for urbanites. Big, diverse and international – every food, language, culture and counterculture have a home here. You might be able to ski and surf in the same day in Vancouver, but in Toronto you can go out for an Aussie breakfast in the morning, a Korean BBQ on your lunchbreak and a Middle Eastern shawarma on the way home – all before or after watching a classical music recital in the park, a poetry slam in a dive bar and a drag show in a gay club. Eclectic and exciting, Toronto is definitely a place for city lovers. But it’s also not short of natural beauty – with big green parks, waterfront cycle paths and easy access to Ontario’s slopes, lakes and national parks.
