Im a 24yr old NZ female and I AM going to Canada for a Working Holiday in June....(early June) So Im hoping to find a travel buddy who's doing the same thing.
Someone who is willing to backpack or travel this majestic country with me (cheap cheap lol)
This person definately has to be someone fun not moody!

If anyone is interested let me know!

I'm not going there, but I'm from there. Feel free to shoot me a message if you have specific questions on a region or topic and I'll do what I can to help. Can't promise I'll be particularly quick responding, as I'm travelling, but I will get back to you. :) I might be able to help you connect with locals depending on where you're going too.

Im rob 21 from uk.
im going to canada, hopefully in February, possibly with a friend, but probably not. So i am looking for a travel companion. If i am going with my friend we will get jobs in a ski resort until the weather warms up, then start to travel around the country, however if i am travelling alone i think im going to live in a city for a while till it warms up then start travelling. Either way, i hope to be well into my travels by june if your interested

Vancouver is one of the largest cities, so there are different options for work. Is there a particular type of work you're interested in?

Is a very multi cultural city with a lot going on. Rated as one of the most livable cities in the world for the past few years, and has a relatively mild climate by Canadian standards - warm winters with very little snow (mostly rain). It's close to the mountains as well.

There are a number of major resorts near there - ski hills, etc. If you're interested in that Rob. Check around whistler. Although, if you go solo and plan to stick with a city, the east might be easier for you to fly into and have some options as well.

Further into the mountains are beautiful though, and quite a few travelers will be working on the various mountains for the winter, so even if you go alone, I'm sure you'd meet quite a few people.

I know a few people in Van, but they all work out of town, so won't be much help there. Sorry.
