Do you want to work in Canada?
Every year since 1975, SWAP has welcomed thousands of international youth into Canada through our programs and partner organizations. If you are between the ages of 18 to 35, you can travel to and live in Canada to experience our culture and gain international work experience. We'll make sure that you have all the resources you'll need to ensure your time in "The Great White North" is the best it can be. We can advise you on everything from the best way to find a job to the most efficient ways to travel across the country, and everything in-between.
Young citizens of any of the countries listed below that are interested in coming to Canada for a work and travel experience can inquire about what opportunities are available by contacting our local partner organizations, who will be happy to help you.
If your country is not on the list above, that's OK, you can register here!
