FAQ’s

How much spending money will a guest need?

  • This is a difficult question to answer because it depends on your eating & drinking habits. Plan on perhaps $100 – $200 Canadian per week.
  • Can a guest get a job while in Canada?
  • Yes. However, there is one option that is easy & legal
  • To work legally a guest can apply for a travel / work visa. This costs ~$300Can$ and is obtained via a Canadian High Commission or Consular Office (see link below). These are good for 1 year but there are limits of how many are issued.
  • In the past some of our imports have done odd jobs around the city to earn a little extra spending money.
  • The options are to our guests. A thing to keep in mind is the club will make every effort to assist in a job search but it will make no guarantees. The harder a guest works at finding work, the more work they may find.
