Welcome to the information page for the Working Holiday Program.



Ambasciatore Andrea Meloni

The Program makes it possible for young Canadians to spend up to twelve months in Italy, where they may seek and obtain paid temporary employment for up to six months, and get to know first-hand the country and its people, its culture and traditions. It is a unique opportunity to share in the Italian way of life, learn the language, make friends, and gain valuable work experience.

As with any program of this kind, there are forms to fill out and requirements to be met, but I urge you not to be deterred by the process – it is less involved than it may appear. Keep in mind that staff at the Embassy and the Consulates are available to answer your questions.

Best wishes to all those who apply; buone vacanze e buon lavoro.


Andrea Meloni
Ambassador of Italy to Canada
