We’re Stepabroad, a leading internship and working holiday placement agency passionate about helping you obtain personal and professional growth with guaranteed work abroad experiences.
Stepabroad gives Canadians, typically between the ages of 18 and 30, the chance to experience work and travel in four destinations around the globe. As one of Canada’s fastest-growing travel agencies based in downtown Vancouver, Stepabroad coordinates every aspect of the work/travel process.
We offer international internships and working holidays for young Canadians, providing the chance to gain the unparalleled growth and development that comes from travel – a factor that also stands out to potential employers upon your return.
Our agency is here to guide and support our working travellers and interns from the moment they decide to leave, throughout their stay, until they return home. We are here to provide a safe, enriching and beneficial experience – one that will remain with them for a lifetime.
Stepabroad is recognized and certified by the Government of Canada, and thanks to our Recognized Organization (RO) status designated by IEC (International Experience Canada), we are also able to offer exclusive work permits to countries without a Youth Mobility Agreement. Our inbound department, Stepwest, is also available to help foreign youth come to Canada for work and travel experiences.
Our mission is to provide exceptional, life-changing travel and work experiences to Canadian youth.
We know first-hand the value of travel – of seeing the world, experiencing new cultures and meeting new people, and what it means for building character in a young person. We aim to facilitate the process for young Canadians, to ensure they have the chance to live their dreams, from the coast of South America to the mountains of Japan, and to develop an adaptive and culturally knowledgeable generation ready to succeed in the workforce both today and tomorrow.
Stepabroad wants to be the leader in Canada for internships and work experiences abroad by providing Canadian youth of all backgrounds with opportunities for personal, career and cultural growth through affordable, all-inclusive work experiences.
We see a future where we can empower young Canadians, regardless of socioeconomic status, to work and travel anywhere on the globe cost-effectively, and foster the latest technology to share their experiences with others both in Canada and around the world.
We value the benefits of work and education, but at our core, it is the young people we are fortunate to work with that is our central focus. Our singular goal is to create the best possible experience – one that enriches and inspires. We want to take the stress out of travel and make it possible for young Canadians to live and work abroad, to grow professionally and personally, and we know just how beneficial travel is to that process.
We know the nuts and bolts, the fine details and not-so-fun paperwork that is required, and manage all of those details to ensure our young clients have access to the experience of a lifetime.
