Canada

Canada is increasingly becoming a popular alternative to Australia for students wishing to take a gap year. UK citizens up to the age of 30 can apply for a work permit to do temporary work for up to 24 months, whilst travelling.

Whilst unemployment is low, there are restrictions on getting a permanent job in Canada. Check out the list of shortage occupations if you are interested in moving on a more permanent basis.

The resources below provide information on applying for work and what it's like to live there.
