Default Canada - Year working holiday through BUNAC

Hi I'm a 23 year old IT engineer. Hoping to go to canada for a year through Bunac. Does anyone know if you can get this extended at the end of the year? If you have a steady job and things?

My hope would be to go for a year...and then just keep extending it until I can apply for citizenship.

Thanks

To extend you would have to find an employer that is able/willing to get a Labour Market Opinion from HRSDC after advertising the position and then convincing HRSDC that any Canadians/PRs were not qualified for the position. Then you would have to apply for a work permit extension.
You should be looking at Immigration rather than citizenship, you have to become a permanent resident before you can apply for citizenship.
