Destination Canada

Destination Canada 2017 is presented by the Embassy of Canada in France with support from Citizenship and Immigration Canada and in partnership with public agencies for employment and international mobility:

Most will be eligible for an LMIA exempt work permit under International Experience Canada (Young Professionals, International Coop Internship, Working Holiday) or the new "Mobilité francophone" stream which launched on June 1st 2016. Some candidates will already have an open Working Holiday permit or Permanent Resident visa and be authorized to work from the day they arrive in Canada, without any administrative steps required on the part of employers.

Instructions will follow to post job openings. The positions can be permanent, temporary or seasonal.
