Ideal destinations to explore during working holidays

Every year, thousands of Canadians go abroad to discover a country thanks to a working holiday program that makes life easier for them by granting them a work visa. For example, International Experience Canada (IEC) allows young people aged 18 and over to work and travel in more than 30 different countries. Here are 4 perfect destinations to explore in working holiday mode.

Costa Rica

Of course, many Quebecers have already visited Costa Rica and spent great vacations there. But how many have had the chance to work there and live life like a Tico (Costa Rican)? Dive into the heart of this larger-than-life country for a professional or leisure experience that is very "pura vida".

Hong Kong

China is not necessarily a country that you immediately think of when you are looking for destinations to work in on a working holiday visa. However, there is a bilateral agreement between China and Canada that allows 200 young Canadians (aged 18 to 30) to travel to Hong Kong each year to gain experience. Some of the places to visit include the bustling Lan Kwai Fong district, the Kowloon Boardwalk, the Avenue of Stars and the fishing village on Lantau Island.


To study, work or discover the country, Chile is a destination of choice. The country welcomes more than 26,000 foreign students every year. The landscapes and climates are very varied, as are the activities that can be enjoyed: diving, skiing, surfing, hiking and more. The Torres del Paine National Park, the Atacama Desert, Patagonia or Easter Island are all must-see places to discover.


The Working Holiday program between Austria and Canada will be presented. If you have always wanted to visit this European country with its immense cultural, musical and architectural wealth, now is the time to find out more. Follow in the footsteps of Freud, Mozart and Klimt.
