Who is eligible for a Canada Working Holiday Visa?

You must be either British or Irish to be able to bag yourself a Work Visa for Canada, and between 18-30 if you're British, or 18-35 if you're Irish.

On arrival, you must prove you have access to $2,500 (around £1,500).

How long can you stay in Canada on a working holiday visa?

The IEC working holiday visa is pretty over-subscribed, and is controlled on the discretion of Canadian immigration, for good reason. If you're a British citizen between the ages of 18 and 30, or an Irish citizen between the ages of 18-35, you can work and travel around Canada for up to 2 years.

What's the process of the Canadian working holiday visa?

5,000 visas are allocated to each the UK and Ireland each year. Because it's an over-subscribed visa, you should join the visa pool as early as possible, then once you've applied you'll either hear back with an invitation to apply or you won't (people are selected at random). Once you get an invitation you can then begin your formal application.
