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 Canada 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 shift quicker than a hungry bear in salmon season, so to make it as fair as possible, we have a ballot system where names are anonymously drawn. The first round of invites will be drawn on the 8 Jan, so for the chance to get an RO letter, you must register for the ballot now.

How do I apply
Due to the high demand for RO letters (think Glastonbury tickets in the UK, minus the mud), to make it as fair as possible, we have a ballot system where names are anonymously drawn. The first round of invites will be drawn on the 8 Jan '24, so for the chance to get an RO letter, you must register for the ballot now. If your name is drawn, you’ll then have seven days to pay your program fee.
Why does JENZA get RO letters?
Why is the Returner Canada more expensive than Work Canada
Returner Canada inclusions
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.
Visa fee Canada
This is paid directly to the Canada Embassy and currently costs CAD $272.
In-person biometrics appointment
This is a condition of your visa and currently costs CAD $85.

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.
