OK so I spent 3 years having the best time travelling and working in Oz, NZ and Asia. Been home over a year now and it sucks- can't settle back in and feel I just need to get back on the road again. I'm thinking about Canada as It's easy to get a visa but I really need a bit of advice. I'd be going with not much money- I did this in OZ and NZ easy- picked up work where ever I went but I'm not sure if Canada will be the same..

If anyone's been there or lives there and has any ideas or info- mainly about the working side of things it would really help me out!

Hello Ben,

What kind of work are you looking for. Depends on what cities you're travelling to.

I would recommend checking out and check out the individual cities you are going to visit just to see what kind of work is available.

I live in Vancouver and work 2 jobs and have never really had a problem finding work but it all depends on who you are and what you will be doing.

I live in Vancouver as well, and although I'm Canadian, I can attest that there are a load of foreigners working here.

While some sectors are feeling the economy and not hiring as often or paying as well, anyone with café, restaurant, or manual labour skills should be able to find work quite easily.
