Plan your trip to Canada
In terms of visa - to Canada or the USA?
There is no question that immigration policy in Canada is a lot friendlier than in the US. The J1 visa for an internship in the States costs almost 1000 euros and you need to proof excellent English skills to be eligible for it. However the working holiday visa, which is one of three entry tickets to intern in Canada, is definitely more affordable with a fee of only 110 euros. But what about the waiting times? As well as for the States, you need to be patient to apply for the working holiday visa to do an internship in Canada. The Embassy in Canada takes their time to announce the quota that is available for each country each year and the it may take about 2 months to receive the visa. However, the application process is much easier and implies less bureaucracy than in the U.S.!
"Welcome to Canada" or "Bienvenue au Canada" - Learning French or English?
Even though English and French are official languages in Canada, they are not commonly used in all Canadian provinces. Only in the province of Quebec, French is spoken in addition to English. Those who wish to improve in either French or English during their internship in Canada, are given the perfect opportunity here! Thus, Quebec magnetically attracts international students who would like to test themselves in a French-speaking environment while interning in Quebec.
In particular, the city of Montreal, which is located in Quebec, is a great city to start a global career. Many growing international companies have settled in Canada's second largest city and give it the typical European character. For European students an internship in Montreal is therefore the first choice, especially when it is their first long term trip abroad.
Travel without a working holiday visa to Canada
As there is only a small amount of visa available and they are exclusively issued by the Canadian embassy since 2016. This is how it works: You register at their homepage, create a profile and then all you need to do is wait. The embassy then sends out random invitations on a regular basis and you will need to wait for that invitation to be applicable for the working holiday visa. But as the number of applicants usually exceeds the number of visa, you may not be on the lucky side! However, there is an alternative to the working holiday visa, that you may use for an internship in Canada! The so-called C50 visa would be an option for you, if you do an internship in a charity organization in Canada. Even though these internship are usually unpaid, they can also be accepted as a professional internship from your university.
