Our Story

SWAP Working Holidays is an organization that has been working for over 48 years to promote cultural exchange opportunities to Canadians. We started in 1975 and have been going strong ever since. Back then (a time before internet, selfies, and #hashtags), we sent 7 brave Canadian youth to work and travel across the world to New Zealand. All they had to do was strap backpacks on and we helped them with everything else. We made sure their paperwork was in order and that they were taken care of when they arrived. After that successful trip, feeling proud to have been part of such a life-changing initiative, we realized there were other Canadians who wanted the same type of supported experiences in other countries. The rest is history.
