Take me back
The best thing to come out of our Canada manifest circle since Ryan Gosling’s cheekbones, JENZA is given an annual allocation of Recognised Organisation (RO) letters for Aussie and Kiwi passport holders. If you’ve already used your first Canada working holiday visa (IEC visa), the RO is a second chance to live and work in Canada for another two years while you’re still 18-35. Applications for RO letters are usually released in Dec/Jan each year, are on a first come first served basis, and will shift quicker than a hungry bear in salmon season.

Why does JENZA get RO letters?
Our Canada partners, SWAP, are a Recognised Organisation (RO) of International Experience Canada (IEC), the government program that facilitates Canada’s youth mobility agreements. Because they’re awesome humans, they send RO letters our way - exclusively for JENZA travellers.
Visa alert Our 2023 RO letters have all been taken for this year. Check back soon for our 2024 allocation - usually announced and released in Dec '23 or Jan '24.
Why is the Returner Canada more expensive than Work Canada
Returner Canada inclusions
What’s not included
We don’t recommend booking flights until your visa is approved.
Support funds (CAD $)
You are required to show proof that you can access CAD $2,500.
Travel insurance for Canada
You may be asked for your policy documents at immigration, so you must take out comprehensive travel insurance to cover you for your whole stay. For example, if you book a six-month policy to save money, you run the risk of your visa being stamped for that duration – not the full duration of your visa.
In-person biometrics appointment
This is a condition of your visa and currently costs CAD $85.
Canada police background check
You need to provide a police check for every country you have continuously lived in for 6+ months since the age of 18. The process and cost varies per country.
Visa fee Canada
This is paid directly to the Canada Embassy and currently costs CAD $261.

What our Canada roadtesters had to say
Before you’re even let loose on one of our JENZA experiences, it’s trialled by either a JENZA roadtester or member of our Youth Advisory Panel. Because if it didn’t fly with them, it’s sure as heck not going to fly with you. Meet Mia and Laura, and their 2-4-1 advice on moving from Oz to Canada. It will give you chills.
