Here are some of the most unique jobs hiring in Canada right now.
Sugar Bush Tapper
We might call this the quintessential Canadian job that you can still get year after year. After all, there are few things more Canadian than maple syrup. And, as a tapper, you’ll spend all day messing around (aka working) across 750 acres of pristine maple forests.
This might be a more modern Canadian job, but the bones are the same. Canada was one of the first countries in the world to legalize cannabis, and that means we’re also at the forefront of the commercial cannabis wave. Cheech and Chong fans, eat your hearts out.
Parks Recreation and Resource Officer
That actual posting in Alberta is more just a placeholder, reminding you that we’ve got some of the most spectacular parks in the world. If you just want to experience some of the best backyards in the world, then this might be the area for you.
Lead Video Game Producer
Just recently, the video game company EA announced that it had opened a new studio, specifically to create Skate 4.
