has anyone worked in canada?

i am thinking about going to work in canada during the next winter ski season. has anyone done this or knows anything about it? I have seen there are a few organisations (OWH etc) which can organise jobs for you and accommodation. is it worth paying them to do this or better to just find a job when u get there?

it is better to find a job when you get to canada because some of the organizations end up taking some of your pay check as payment for finding you the job...if you want a job for the ski season here in canada go to vancouver or wisler or banff BC...so yeah find a job when you get here....

Well you could work as a ski instructor or something to do with the ski season.

My friend just got back from Canada and they give you accomodation and everything.

Well, if you can ski

yeah the organisations make u pay about $A600 then they get u a job. I wanna work in a bar or hotel or something on the mountain. I enquired about being a ski instructor but u need to pay to do a course over there-even if u know how to ski. think i'll just go over there and see if i can get a job wen i get there, cos they'll surely have lots of work going, as it will be their busiest time of year
