What Makes Us Tick!
As Banff based owners and operators we have been established here for many years, successfully coordinating seasonal accommodation, Gap Years and work programs. By creating a welcoming, social and warm atmosphere our group quickly become locals in Banff, and not just “visitors” in town. We continue to share our passion for the mountains, and give the insiders edge to connect you quickly so all the pieces of an epic season fall into place. Gap Year Canada was developed to provide young, adventurous, enthusiastic and outgoing students from all over the world the opportunity to discover the magic of the mountains. Live in another country, gain lifelong friends, skills and experiences that will stay with them forever.
We pre-arrange all the small details for your season away: chalet accommodation, work visa’s, resume’s, job placement, travel, and airport transfers. All the big decisions are left to you; which mountain to shred, which line to rip, and what club or bar to hit that night!We coordinate seasons for Canadians along with applicants from the other 32 countries that Canada has a reciprocal working holiday visa program. (including: Australia, New Zealand, UK, Ireland, Austria, Belgium, Chile, Czech, Denmark, France, Greece, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Norway, Switzerland, Sweden and more).
Whether you are on a gap year, taking a break from the working world, or finishing university and not quite ready for a career, we coordinate the experience of a lifetime.
Learn or master a lifelong sport, live in one of the world’s most favourite mountain destinations and gain experience working in another country.
