Planning your OE? Welcome to International Working Holidays
Canada Ranch Stay Program
Our very cool Ranch Stay program offers you an unpaid job opportunity on a farm or ranch located in some of the most beautiful places in Canada.
You’ll help on the farm on 5 days a week between 4-6 hours daily hand in hand with your host family. This experience is a very unique one and recommended only for those, who don’t mind getting dirty.
If that sounds like you, then you’ll be a member of the family, and be treated with respect. You’ll experience the beauty of the Canadian scenery while sharing ranch work with your host family.
Experience a very cultural Canadian lifestyle experience first hand.
On your arrival day in Vancouver you stay for at least one night in the city, because your final destination is most likely too far away to continue your journey on the same day. On your final travel day we will pick you up from your location in Vancouver and bring you to the bus or ferry. The transfer to the ranch is included.
Our application form will help us find you the most suitable ranch or farm. It’s important to find you the most suited farm or ranch, because your expectations and wishes are important to us.
We have many different ranches and farms and will be able to find a good fit for you.
Types of Farms & Ranches
Our farms are very different. From cattle farms to horse ranches or little organic farms, the spectrum is wide. That’s why duties vary from place to place. All of them are family owned businesses, taken care of with love, because the farm or ranch is their livelihood. Many farms are involved in organic agriculture and we have built trusted relationships that sometimes reach back more than 15 years with them. Horse lovers can request to be placed on ranches and after work everyone is welcome to discover the area, or even ride horses in the breathtaking terrain.
All Host Families are well screened by our partners in Canada. They all are met in person and undertake a police check.
