I am from Ireland. My application for a Canadian working holiday visa has been accepted (through the IEC programme, I have my Port of Entry letter).
I plan to go to Canada later this year to start this (e.g. May 2015). It is a 2 year visa.
Can I visit Canada now to see a friend without affecting my working holiday visa? (e.g. for 2 weeks in March 2015, not working.)
I want to avoid any risk of invalidating my working holiday visa.
