Hi, feel free to private message me on this if you want, I don't have MSN.

it's a legal requirement to fill in the tax return forms, you will get a refund if your employer over-taxed you whilst you worked here - which is probably if you do not intend to work for the full year.

and yes, layout of your CV is important, as is grammar and spelling. i found all my jobs through the internet. as for how easy is it to get a full-time job? that's a tough question to ask and depends on many factors, as I've already said before, what sort of work you are looking for, the qualifications you have etc. Reply to this

moreover, my concern is that if i stay by homestay, when applying for a job, my address will probably let the employer know i am not going to stay for a long time there therefore , a full time job is hard to get, right ?

I rent my own place with a friend. A short term address won't affect your chance of getting a full time job. It's all about the skills. Do you have the skills and personality they are looking for? Reply to this

i'm working full time with benefits but i kind of made a white lie and said that I was looking to get a permanent residency when my working visa was up.. with 40% of canadian graduate architects un-employed, it was the only way I could see myself having any chances of getting a job.

but if you're looking for short-term contract jobs and casual jobs in tourism/hospitality, you're probably better off telling the truth because they may look on working holiday-ers favourably as you might not be looking for long-term prospects with the company. Reply to this

In Vietnam, I am an expert in Tourism. do you guys think that I also have chance to get a job in this industry? I am in love with this so cant think of any others. If I had chances, what are the qualifications you think that the employer with require from me???? That is important for me...

Thanks for your suggestion... Reply to this

Are you guys still in Canada ???

Will you file the tax in the coming April next year before leaving Canada ?

then you will get back the tax paid in the paid cheque , right ?

Take care. Reply to this

It works exactly like I assume it does in HK. The tax department will work out how much tax you're supposed to pay the government. If you've paid too much, you'll get a tax return. If you haven't paid enough, you'll have to pay more. You will not get every cent back that you paid in tax, that is not how it works in any country.

And no, you don't need an IELTS certificate or language certification of any kind to get into the country. Reply to this

There are two distinct ways to qualify for a Canadian Immigration (Permanent Resident) Visa under the Federal Skilled Worker category and there are different requirements throughout the immigration process for each, Oasis Immigration Network will assists you in navigating the Canadian Immigration System, which is a FREE service to immigration applicants.

I am still here in Canada on the Working Holiday Program. I am loving it and will be re-applying again at the end of the year for another two years.

Q: I am currently in Canada on a WHP work permit, can I re-apply to the WHP? I have previously worked in Canada on a WHP work permit, can I re-apply to the WHP? I am currently in Canada on a SWAP work permit, can I apply to the WHP? I have previously worked in Canada on a SWAP work permit, can I apply to the WHP?

A: Yes to all. The current policy has no limit to the number of times you can participate under the program as long as you continue to meet the age criteria and all other admissibility and eligibility requirements. You do not have to wait for your current work permit to expire before reapplying but the earliest you may mail a new WHP application to our office is 12 weeks before your current work permit expires. You must submit the correct Program Participation Fee with any new application. To re-apply, please go to http://www.whpcanada.org.au/apply_online.shtml.

Q: Can I apply to a visa office within Canada? Can I be in Canada while my application is being processed? Can I be in Canada when my application is approved and my LOI is issued?

A: You cannot lodge your application to an office located in Canada. However, you may be physically residing in Canada and submit your application to the Sydney office. Once you receive your Letter of Introduction via email, you must physically leave Canada and on re-entry present the Letter of Introduction to the officer at the Port of Entry (POE) or border crossing for validation to activate your LOI and be issued your 24-month work permit. If you plan to leave and re-enter Canada through a US/Canada shared POE, you will have to meet US immigration requirements (to be allowed entry to the US) and you should check with the nearest US Embassy or US Consulate before leaving home. Please also refer to U.S. visas. Reply to this

Hi there! I'm from Vietnam and I know about Working Holiday Program. But I think it's not for Vietnamese. I confuse a lot because the agent in Vietnam said that it's new to Vietnamese and some competitive agent so the partner (means Go International) of one company don't post the information(that allow Vietnamese to join) on their website to make the agent in Vietnam unique!
You guys think Vietnamese can join Working Holiday Program?! Reply to this
