Therefore, applications for mobility visas for young people will not be accepted until further notice. This new agreement will improve access to the labour market for young Canadians and Italians aged 18 to 35 by allowing them to work and travel for 12 months. Applicants can participate twice for a total of 24 months. Teens can also gain professional work experience with the addition of 2 streams: International Co-op and Young Professionals. Committee of Ministers Resolution ResAP(1991) (Resolution ResAP(2003)1), revised in 2003, introduces a partial agreement on the Youth Card in order to promote and facilitate the mobility of young people in Europe. The partial agreement is part of the Youth Division of the Council of Europe and therefore follows the priorities and objectives of the youth sector and the Council of Europe as a whole. The partial agreement on the mobility of young people through the Youth Card was adopted in 1991 on the initiative of Catherine Lalumière, then Secretary General of the Council of Europe, following the Conference of Ministers of the Council of Europe responsible for Youth in Lisbon (Portugal). At this conference, ministers called for an increase in the mobility of young people between East and West. Note: The Canada-Mexico Youth Mobility Agreement is under review.
Therefore, no invitation to apply is currently sent. “The partial agreement aims to further develop the youth card system, in particular at European level, in the best interests of young people … with the aim of facilitating their mobility and access to the various goods and services necessary for their personal and cultural development. Youth cards offer young people – residents or travellers – access to advice, discounts and benefits in the areas of mobility, accommodation, culture, language courses and services, as well as online (by category, city or country) and offline products. Youth cards are issued by national youth card organisations. Canada has youth mobility agreements with 36 other countries. Thanks to reciprocal bilateral agreements, young adults can travel and work in these countries. Canadians can work in these countries and vice versa for citizens of other participating countries. Anyone under the age of 30 can become a holder of a youth card, a young person does not need to be a student or resident of a European country. To this end, a wide range of actors will be activated: governments, European institutions, businesses, experts, academics, youth NGOs, national youth card organisations and young cardholders themselves. Thus, Member States actively contribute to and benefit from the expertise of the Partial Agreement. Its mission is to engage in the improvement, knowledge, visibility and recognition of learning mobility in the youth sector, in particular in various forms of youth work. Canada and Italy have been partners in youth mobility since 2006.
This new agreement will be implemented after ratification in Canada and Italy. Note: Youth Mobility Visa: You can also submit your Youth Mobility Visa application to any German mission or immigration office after you arrive in Germany. However, we strongly recommend that a visa be issued in advance. Employment cannot be taken until mandatory approval. “This agreement, which aims to strengthen the exchange of experience and knowledge between Italian and Canadian citizens and to create new vocational training opportunities, responds to a need deeply felt by today`s young people. I am sure that this will help to further strengthen the already excellent bilateral relations between Italy and Canada. – His Excellency Luigi Di Maio, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of the Italian Republic Note: The French government has launched the Volunteer International in Enterprise (VIE) program to give young French people the opportunity to: Gain professional experience in an international environment. .
