The age limit for working holidays to Ireland and Canada has been raised from 30 to 35 for Australians and vice versa in order to strengthen ties between the countries.
Updated Updated 1 November

Young workers have been given an extra five years to seize the opportunity to travel to Ireland and Canada on a working holiday.

Australians up to age 35 are now able to go on working holidays to Ireland and Canada as part of a new reciprocal arrangement announced by the federal government on Thursday.

The age limit for Irish and Canadian citizens wanting to spend a year working and travelling in Australia has also been increased by five years from 30 to 35.

“Both Canada and Ireland have been part of Australia’s Working Holiday Maker program since it began in 1975 so it is fitting that they are the first countries to become eligible for the extended age range,” Immigration Minister David Coleman said.

The purpose of the program is to strengthen the “cultural exchange” between the participating countries by creating more opportunities for young people to travel.
