It's not just a one-year working holiday anymore! Australia and Canada have come to an agreement on a new two-year visa, which allows Australians 18-30 to work, play and stay with no previous job offer required. It’s not a one-time deal anymore; Aussies can come back to Canada under the same program for more fun and adventures! The working holiday visa is now called the International Experience Canada (IEC) visa, which combines the working holiday visa, Internship and Young Professional programs. At the Painted Turtle Guesthouse we have had many guests stay with us from Australia, and use us as a home base to plan their ultimate Canadian experience. Vancouver Island is a great place to start (or end) your travels. There are a lot of exciting jobs, especially in the tourism industry. Imagine working at one of our ski resorts, snowboarding and snowshoeing on your days off, or guiding other travelers on whale watching or grizzly bear tours! All year around the opportunities are endless. Stay at the Painted Turtle and let us help you get your adventure started! Use us as your home-away from home as we have free wireless access, computer stations, kitchen and laundry facilities. Book now!
