    Hi all.

    Well I am currently living in the UK, which I am not going to lie I do not like at all.
    I want a new start in life and I would love to move to Canada as I have been there on holiday and I thought it was amazing!
    I just have no idea on how to go about trying to get the journey started, how much money you need, the process to get a visa, I am just wondering if anyone can give me some tips.
    A girl I sit next to at work her friends went and worked at a placement for 7 months i a bar and after this was able to get his permanent visa.

    Any advice would be great.

    Thanks all.

    Not really the right forum - try the travel or gap year ones.
    If you are under the age of 30 and a British citizen you can get a one year working holiday visa for Canada through BUNAC, and from January 2011, directly through the Canadian High Commission You'll have to pass a police check and pay a visa fee. You can also get another one year student working holiday visa through BUNAC if you are currently at university or within one year of graduation (this is the one I'm going to take next year)

    To get a more permanent visa the most common route is to be sponsored by an employer or a Canadian citizen (spouse, or a sibling who is already a citizen for example)

    Well worth completing a working holiday program. The main fall point for people is the significant gap between holidaying in a place and living in the place. There would be nothing worse than pulling off all of the immigration requirements and moving everything there, only to find you don't like it.

    Check out BUNAC.. http://www.bunac.org.uk/workcanada program will re-open at some point in January

    Hey!

    As previous posters mentioned, BUNAC's Work Canada programme will be opening during this month. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions. The advantage of going through BUNAC is having a support network in Canada, pre-departure advice and help with finding work and accommodation on arrival.
    You also have the option to take group flights where you can meet and travel with other BUNAC members.

    Feel free to get in touch if you have any other Qs.

    Thanks www.bunac.org.uk/workcanada
