We continue to share our passion for the mountains, and give the insiders edge to connect you quickly so all the pieces fall into place for a successful season, or year out living and working in Banff.

Gap Year Canada was developed to provide young, adventurous, enthusiastic and outgoing 18-30 year olds from all over the world the opportunity to discover the magic of the mountains.

Living in another country provides an unparalleled expereince - you will meet so many new people, gain lifelong friends, skills and experiences that will stay with you forever.

Gap Year Canada pre-arrange all the small details for your season away: where to live & work (with job offers arranged prior to departure), and assist with planning  details like visa’s, insurance and flights so you can make all the big decisions; which mountain to shred, where to hike or bike, and what club or bar to hit that night!

We live in one of the most beautiful places in the world, with nature, sports and the mountains on our doorsteps, and look forward to sharing the season with you!
