between Costa Rica and Canada
The Bilateral Agreement between Costa Rica and Canada on Youth Mobility promotes the opportunities for young citizens of both countries to travel for a period of one year, in order to complement their post-secondary education, to obtain employment or practical workplace experience, or to improve their knowledge of the other country’s language, culture and society.
If you are a Canadian citizen, between 18 and 35 years old, you could participate in this program, under one of the three following categories:
- Young Professionals. This category is designed for young professional Canadian citizens, including post-secondary graduates, who wish to obtain working experience, training and career development in Costa Rica, under a pre-arranged contract of employment.
- Internship: This category is designed for young Canadian citizens who are registered students at a post-secondary institution in Canada, and who intend to complete part of their academic curriculum in Costa Rica, by doing a pre-arranged internship or work placement, including in the context of an inter-institutional arrangement between post-secondary institutions.
- Working Holidays. This category is designed for young Canadian citizens, including registered students, who intend to travel in Costa Rica and to work to supplement their financial resources.
