Not sports related in any way, shape or form...apologies if you were expecting that. Instead, here's a little section from the WHP Canada/Australia website:
"I am currently in Canada on a WHP work permit, can I re-apply to the WHP?
Yes. There will be no limit to the number of times you can participate under the program as long as you continue to meet the age criteria and all other admissibility and eligibility requirements. You do not have to wait for your current work permit to expire before reapplying."
That means as soon as the 2010 permit stuff goes up, I can reapply and all I have to do, from reading the rest of the FAQ list, is go to the Sumas crossing and get a new shiny permit. I'm rather chuffed now :D
