    Why use our Premium Canada Working Holiday Service?

    • Through our comprehensive consultation process with you, arrival orientation and ongoing support, you will have piece of mind knowing you have the best possible chance to secure a placement opportunity either before you arrive, or shortly after your arrival (if you are traveling first) and that you will have local friendly assistance during your entire stay in Canada. 
    • During the placement search we take into account your objectives and personality and seek placement opportunities based on this; whether these are gaining experience, or meeting people, or snowboarding, all of these objectives are assessed so we can assist you in finding the most suitable placement.
    • You will have accommodation options that will allow you to have a place to live and this will be organised prior to your arrival or shortly after you land. We have an extensive online social community to help you get in touch with other participants before, during and after your stay.
    • We will tell you all of the inside tips on great things to do all over the country and you will have access to events in key locations throughout Canada, which are exclusive to our participants and give you more opportunity to meet other people in the same situation as you and have an awesome time together! 
    • In addition to organising the most affordable way to reach your placement, if you would like to travel during your time here you will have exclusive access to our "participants only" travel desk. 
    • All these things add up to saving you loads of time and money



    Wondering When To Go?


    For Premium Service applicants, there are two seasons: Winter and Summer. 

    • Winter is from November – April. 
    • Summer is from May – October. 

    You need to be able to arrive for the start of the season, and commit for the full season.          

    No matter how bad the snow, how flat the light, how tired your legs, or how crowded the hill, every day skiing has something unique to offer. Whether it’s the new trick you mastered, the stranger you met on the lift, or simply the time spent with all the incredible people you’ve met in one short season, climbing out of bed is all it takes for an exceptional day on the hill.

    Costs for the Premium Service Program

    • Winter Pre-Arranged Job placement   $999 NZD - Payable at time of application
    • Summer Pre-Arranged Job placement  $850 NZD - Payable at time of application

    Ski Resort Canada Typical Wages & Jobs

    Minimum Wage by Province

    Canada is a tipping nation. Food & Beverage, Kitchen Work and select Service positions can expect $2-5 extra per hour based on season, location and company.

    So was it worth it? Was cramming all my earthly possessions into the “Passat Hound,” and voyaging north without so much as glancing at a Whistler trail map worthwhile? Unconditionally, yes. I learned this year what four years of university never taught me, and collected two fistfuls of exceptional stories along the way. But most importantly, Whistler made me a skier. And I’m damn proud of it. Andrew Sprowell
