chemgal has indicated that this thread is about Canada

I have just got my WHV for Canada and heading to Vancouver at the start of July. Does anyone know how easy it is to get a job in Canada? I am keen to find something in the Yukon or in Churchill, Manitoba.

I know you will have a much better chance of getting a job in the Yukon over Churchill. Also, the Yukon will have a lot more interesting things to do over the summer. I was trying to work there myself this summer, but I now have a job in Nunavut instead.

Your not looking to see Polar Bears by chance are you? =)

For real though, the Yukon will have a plethora of jobs, and it is really really nice up there too. Only drawback is it's a bit expensive, being so isolated, but your usually fairly compensated yourself so it allll works out. Just go up there and start applying.

Where you from anyways?

Oh give good ol' Manitoba a chance. I have no clue what jobs would be like there. And you are comparing a town to a whole province, so maybe it depends on where in the Yukon?

I am sure you can find out about jobs ahead of time via the internet, but most likely wouldn't get them until you could apply in person.

Good luck.

Hey everyone,
Thanks for the replies!

Kevin - I'm from New Zealand and of course I want to see the cuddly (?!?) polar bears. I would even just like to work in Churchill for a couple of months during the busy season.

How did you get the job in Nunavut mista2kool? I'm interested in the Arctic and indigenous people so would be interested in working there too!

It's really easy to get a job in Nunavut. I've heard they are short-staffed all the time, especially during the summer and they'll take anybody. I was even offered one there before I went working north of Vancouver. I don't know what type of job you're looking for but I think most of what they need is waiters and people working in the tourism industry.
