Applying for jobs in Canada can be an exciting experience. If you are 18 to 30 years of age and from an extensive list of participating countries, you can apply for an International Experience Canada (IEC) visa to live, work and travel in Canada for up to one year. There are only about 5,000 of these visas granted every year so applicants must be organised and ready to apply when told to do so. Once an IEC visa has been granted you then have up to 12 months to enter the country and begin your adventure.
Cities with the most jobs in Canada include Toronto, Montreal, Calgary and Vancouver. An interest in a finance career will most likely take you to Toronto, oil and gas experience will lead you to Calgary, Montreal is great for those with a French-speaking background and Vancouver is for those who believe in eco-friendly industries. Of course there are many other vibrant cities you can choose to work, stay or play in. A little research might be required to find out which is best for you.
