What else should I budget for?

Accommodation

Hostel or home stay accommodation can be arranged for you. Please talk to us about costs. 

Visa

Depending on your situation, you may or may not need to obtain a visa. If you do, full information about how to apply for the visa will be provided once you book onto the program.

U.S passport holders are visa-exempt travelers and do not need an eTA (tourist visa) when entering Canada by land or sea, you can therefore undertake an internship for up to 6 months without a visa. 

Employer Specific Work Permit

If however your internship is going to form part of your academic program (for example, if you are required to undertake a placement as part of your university course) and you are in at least the 2nd year of a college, university or apprenticeship course, then you can intern for up to 12 months on the Employer Specific Work Permit. This costs $150CAD.
