I don't think your too young. I came over to Canada when I was 21 straight out of university and I ll be 26 this month. Your doing the right thing by coming on a working holiday first, its not all plain sailing here.

I don't know about being too young to emigrate. But you are far too young to be the burned out husks your post indicates. Tired of the rat race at 22... pfft, the youth of today have no stamina.

We started saving at 22, put in the application at 25 and moved at 26. From everything I've heard, it's far easier while you are young and have no kids to worry about.

Perhaps I was the opposite.
At 22 and even less, I thought I was a prefect age to try out another country.
At that age I thought I was far too young to marry.
Each to their own.

A quick insight to me. Im 22, married but no children. My wife and I are sick of the rat race in this country. We have both always be attrced to moving away. Not for an easier life, just a better quality.

My wife is currently unemployed after recovering from a liver transplant. I am a qualified electrical maintenance engineer with 5 year experience.

We are in the process of trying to plan a working holiday to canada and maybe australia. But i guess my main concern is Canada accepting my qualification.

I guess my question is about te job prospects at my age? FOr the working holiday were hoping to get a job in a resort either in ontario or vancouver

If anyone has ever done this or something similar i would appreciate your comments.

Thanks

Become an outdoor adventure guide, a lobster fisherman or do a Ph.D in 13th century Chinese pottery. If you think the 'rat race' is bad in the UK you should try over here, its like retirement but with a job.

Lol, f**king love it.
I remember someone said moving to canada was like retiring to devon but in your 30s.

Surely its not that bad.
