You may be wondering…
What format is the book in?
The book is a PDF file. It can be read using a computer, iBook and e-readers (Kindle, Nook).
Isn’t most of this available on your site for free?
No. Indeed, a small amount of this information is available in its bare form within half a dozen Canada working holiday related blog posts on offtracktravel.ca, including the popular IEC Application Guide. This book is far more than just an ‘extended version.’ As mentioned, it includes over 34,000 words total.
As mentioned, it includes over 34,000 words total. This is a full-length e-book taking the reader from the initial IEC application all the way to filing taxes and travelling Canada while on their working holiday. The last section is particularly unique, providing eight recent experiences of the working holiday program, as told by solo travellers, couples, ski resort workers and city dwellers.
I’m not from the UK, is this still relevant to me?
Definitely! I have purposely written the book in such a way that the majority of the advice, tips and information would be relevant to non-UK citizens. I would estimate that at least 90% of the information could be taken advantage of people not from the UK.
How often is this guide updated?
The book is checked and updated every six months. I also update the book as and when there are changes to the IEC application process. The version on sale right now was updated 29th June 2017, so a new version will be out in November/December 2017. I send the new copy to anyone who purchased within the last two weeks from the release date.
Why would I buy this book?
This straightforward guide provides the where, what, why and then what for both first-time and experienced travellers. It is my personal belief that anyone who can go on a working holiday, should. I want to help make the idea of a working holiday less intimidating for the many people who would ordinarily never consider one.
