Visa and/or Work Permits Application Fee
There are 3 type of visas (work permits) available for Australians via the International Experience Canada initiative (http://www.canadainternational.gc.ca/australia-australie/experience_canada_experience/index.aspx)
The international co-op visa is sometimes used for Student Internships but it does require the internship offer letter, meaning that placement must be done prior to you being able to apply for the visa.
It is easier to go for the working holiday visa, which can be done right away and has the least requirements out of the three visa options. As it is an open work permit, it allows easy replacement in case of issues, and also allow unpaid interns to get a job on the side and work to financially support their experience in Canada.
We recommend contacting your local destination’s visa office for confirmation as details can change without warning.
