Canada and Italy have signed a youth mobility agreement that will allow Canadians and Italians between the ages of 18 and 35 to work and travel in the other country for one year once COVID-19-related travel restrictions are removed. Candidates can participate twice for a total of two years. The program consists of three streams:
- Working Holiday participants receive open work permits that allow them to work anywhere in the host country to support their travels.
- International Co-op participants receive employer-specific work permits that allow students to gain targeted experience in their field of study.
- Young Professionals participants receive an employer-specific work permit to gain targeted, professional work experience that is within their field of study or career path.
