Work permit visa?

Are there any options (grants, exchange programs, ...anything) to get work permit visa in Canada for EU citizens?
Other than finding a company here that would sponsor you.
Legal way only.

Here's the straight poop directly from the governing body

Either you go through channels and face the backlog of 200,000 applicants or you jump the line with a guaranteed sponsor for your chosen profession.

There's a working holiday visa that lets you work in Canada for up to one year. It's non-renewable and there are some conditions - I believe you have to be younger than 30.

Apart from that, there's the option of applying for permanent residence as a skilled worker but the selection criteria are pretty restrictive.
