Agreement reached with Canada on mobility of young people

Slovaks aged 18-35 will be allowed to upgrade their higher vocational or university education, take part in vocational training with internship, go on working visits, acquire work experience, or expand their knowledge on local culture by travelling to Canada, a new bilateral agreement between the countries states.

The agreement was approved by Slovak Government at its session on August 1. The same benefits are available for young Canadians planning a stay in Slovakia.

However, stays are restricted to one year. Those interested may apply twice, but not consecutively, and the two stays must be different in nature.

The agreement concerns graduates and university undergraduates, students at educational institutions and citizens who want to sign up for vocational training or get a temporary job in the partner country. In the first year, and on a reciprocal basis, as many as 400 citizens may take up the opportunity.
