Work In Canada

Are you concerned about finding meaningful work in Canada?

For almost everyone, the Canada immigration process is about establishing yourself and your career once you arrive in Canada. We understand that you want to find work in Canada related to your education, training, and experience.

Beyond preparing for your arrival in Canada, finding work in Canada may entitle you to other benefits, such as:

  • Becoming eligible for and/or gaining more points under the Skilled Worker/Professional program for Canadian permanent residence;
  • Speeding up your Canadian permanent residence application process; and/or
  • Qualifying under one of Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program.

To obtain that first job in Canada, you will need to know:

Which Canadian employers are hiring?

There are plenty of good Canadian employment opportunities. Each and every day more than 50,000 Canadian job postings go unfilled. CanadaVisa has a tool enabling you to locate and have access to Canadian employment opportunities, from outside of Canada.

How do I have my educational and training credentials recognized?

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is committed to working with the provinces to develop, in consultation with Canadian professional and trade associations, criteria for obtaining equivalent Canadian professional status and transition programs for the integration of new arrivals into the Canadian workplace.

What can I learn about the Canadian Labour Market?

Like most industrialized nations, Canada has legislated Labour Standards that establish minimum requirements that must be followed by Canadian employers in their relations with employees. The purpose of the standards is to ensure that employees work in an environment that is safe and responds to their needs.

How do I write a resume for a Canadian employer?

Canadian employers will expect your resume to conform to specific industry standards.

Are there different types of job offers that a Canadian employer can make?

Yes. There are essentially two types of job offers that a Canadian employer can make:

  • A temporary job offer is an offer of Canadian employment that is made for a specific period of time – six months, one year, etc… Individuals can only begin working, in most cases, after they receive a Temporary Work Permit.
  • A permanent job offer is an offer of Canadian employment that is made for an indeterminate period of time. Individuals can only begin working after they receive a Canada Immigration Visa.
