Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone else is planning to sign up to the 2008 Work Canada program with Bunac. I'm planning on getting out there and it would be good to network and share ideas, research etc.

My plan is to get out there and get straight into a job (after a few days dossing). Maybe move around a bit but the sooner I can settle the better! After the year is up I intend to either stay in Canada (if I like it and they'll take me...) or travel south to south america for 6 months or so.

Vancouver seems a likely choice to begin with but I'm still not completely sure what city/place/resort would be best. I'm a a web designer and would like to stay in that field if possible.....

Cheers ears!

i'm not going on the 2008 programme but just thought i would let you know that I did Bunac work canada in '98 and had a great time. I would recommend Vancouver over Toronto as its a great city- mountains, beach, nightlife, shopping etc - its pretty much got everything a city could want, and the climate is much more temperate than toronto. BC is a beautiful state with loads to explore, and afterwards I headed down to Seattle and San francisco which was great. vancouver island is well worth a visit as it's beautiful too.

Oh right cool. I've heard good things about both Bunac and Vancouver. I'm thinking that I will definitely settle into Vancouver for the first 6 months and perhaps move from there. It seems to have everything right there that I want but I would like to see more of Canada over the year.

Thanks for the wise words. Its priceless!
