Have you made headway with how you are going to apply?

Well I am hoping to get a career break in April of next year, and, like yourself, hoping to got on a recee to Edmonton, for about a year.

I'm not too sure how I apply for say like a 12 month "holiday" visa???

Can I work on a holiday visa, say for cash in hand??

A holiday visa is 6 months and i suppose if you were risky you could work whilst on one and look for perminant work, but i wouldn't recomend it. Work isn't that hard to find depending in where you want to go, so getting a job and applying is safer and easier

What about you Guys?
I work in Telecoms and Deb in accountancy. We went over to Toronto about 4 years ago and just got hooked on Canada. We've not been back long from our Western Canada tour, which took in various places except Edmonton. Would love to have gone there but my lack of funds and time of work kinda meant we had to give it a miss. We'd love to get out of the UK (especially Milton Keynes) asap.... I've been here a while, so I've done my time

Isn't it funny how we share the same attitude in wanting out of MK??

How did you end up here?

So will you be heading to Toronto as a place to live?

Born and bred I'm afraid. The concrete cows and I go way back
Undecided on where we want to live at the moment. We originally thought that we'd end up in either Calgary or Vancouver (like a lot of ex-pats I suppose). But after visiting both we found Calgary wasn't really what we were after and Vancouver to be really pricey. So we're hoping to take a holiday to Nova Scotia and see what that holds. I'm kinda expecting to be totally different from Vancouver...
