Find your dream job – work as a ski bum in Canada!

Canada is without doubt one of the world’s best ski destinations and is renowned for its amazing winter season. Perfect snow conditions, a lively nightlife, varied terrain and breathtaking scenery. That can be your everyday if you choose a working holiday in Canada.

But Canada isn't only a winter wonderland. The summer months are when the place really heats up and everything and everyone comes out to enjoy the incredible wilderness. We also offer summer packages if you prefer to kick start your working holiday adventure in the summer months. Or perhaps you want to do both?

Our Canada working holiday packages provide you with step-by-step visa assistance, guaranteed job placements and orientation on your arrival in Canada. And our team of experts are here to help with flights, plus any extra travel services you might need, like insurance and tours.

Where can I work?

Our world-class ski resort partners include Lake Louise and Silverstar. Tens of thousands of young people from all over the world travel to Canada every year for the ski season, so it's a good idea to make sure you have a job before you leave - not only to avoid being disappointed, but also to save a small fortune.

What type of work is available?

In collaboration with The Working Holiday Club, for Canada's winter season we provide job opportunities in ski rental, ski lift operator and other ski resort-related tasks, as well as restaurants, hotel reception to name but a few.

All positions are related to winter sports and ski resorts, and come with full training as well as salaries, discounts on accommodation, employee discounts, free ski passes and invitations to events and parties.

Biometric fingerprints are a must

In 2019, a change came into force, and it is now a requirement from the Canadian government that biometric fingerprints must be submitted as part of the application, which is currently only possible in London. 

Limited number of visas for the 2023/24 season

Please note that the Canadian Government offers a limited number of Working Holiday visas and they are popular, so we recommend that you consult one of our travel experts as soon as you know if this is right for you.

Are flights included in the package?

Airline tickets to and from Canada are NOT included in our Canada Working Holiday packages, but we have a lot of experience finding good deals and we’re always ready to help you find a cheap flight ticket to Canada.
