Where Are jobs available in Canada?

There are many ways to look for a job in the Canada, we have listed the most relevant below.

Finding a job

Internet: Over the last decade the online job market has exploded into the mainstream and in the  Canada it is now the most popular way to apply for work, especially among younger people and graduates. Online recruitment websites allow you to search according to your criteria, such as sector, salary and region. You can also post your CV on websites so that companies looking for specific skills can find you.

Newspapers & Magazines: Broadsheets such as Toronto Star, Globe and Mail, Toronto Sun, etc all have job offers, mainly for executives and professionals, as well as sections dedicated to specific professions, i.e. teaching, computers, media. In Ontario, check out the Toronto Sun (mainly for business and secretarial positions), Metro and  www.poss.ca  for lower level jobs.

Recruitment agencies: Most agencies specialize in a particular field such as computers, nursing, secretarial work, accounting, catering, construction, and so on. There are also “Head hunting” agencies which are hired by big companies to recruit executives, managers or professionals. Others deal solely with temporary staff (temps), and can find you work in an office or as a babysitter, cook, gardener, security guard or any other type of job. To find an agency you can either look in the “employment agencies” section of the yellow pages or go to xxxx  for a list of agencies and their specialist fields.

Career fairs: A good place to get started is to visit a career fair. Fairs usually have a range of employers and concentrate on a specific sector. Usually you apply by sending in your CV and employers decide who they want to meet in advance. As well as getting general information on employment perspectives in different companies, it is often possible to arrange interviews.

Speculative applications: If a specific company is of interest you can send a speculative application. Applications are retained and checked against positions as they become available in some companies.

Chambers of Commerce: Contact the local chamber of commerce of your home country in the  Canada, as they are often asked for candidates and sometimes have a database of open job positions. Often a chamber of commerce will have a list of companies from your home country doing business in the  Canada, which can make good targets for speculative applications.

Jobcentres: They can be found in every town and focus mainly in jobs for the non-professional. They usually have databases of local, national and European vacancies and know about local employers and their needs. Their advisers can help you with all aspects of finding work. They normally have newspapers, books, leaflets and Internet access to support you in your job search

Networking: Sometimes getting a job is about knowing the right people or being in the right place at the right time. You could join an expats club or attend social gatherings where you think you could meet people that are well connected. Just mingle as much as you can and make sure you let everybody know you are looking for employment.

How to Get job in while out of canada Part II

Let’s say that you just arrived in Canada. Most people come to  Canada without knowing where to search for work.
In this short article I’ll provide few tips from my own client’s experience, even though he lives in  Canada only for 8 months, he consider himself  as a “professional Job seeker”.

There’s few things that you should have with you most of the time:

  • - Passport – They will ask you for it when you will try to open a Bank account and at any recruitment agency, and when you will want to rent a room/ apartment,
  • - Driving License – If you have one, maybe you don’t realize, but if you come from any US or any country that is a member of European Union your driving license is valid in  Canada, and for about $$+ you can exchange your driving license to a  Canada one – really useful in getting a job,
  • - Social Insurance or SIN Card – When you first arrive to  Canada you won’t have Canadian SIN, but once you get it, memorize or carry the card with you at all times,
  • -RESUME or  CV – Essential for getting a better job then manual one, and in some agencies they will ask for a CV whether you look for an office work or for a manual one. Get one great services here

Recruitment Agencies and such

Not many people realize that  Canada is a great place to find a job! It really is. You have not only Recruitment Agencies, but also government-sponsored companies that will help you with your CV (I’ll provide a good CV example in other article), with confidence during an interview, and that will advice you where to look for a job suitable for you.

Unemployment in  Canada exist only because of  some English teenagers who are too lazy to work and rather have two kids and live with parents and claim welfare or social assistance  then study or get a better job. I see it every day, 15 year old girls with a child or two and a young dude who isn’t even sure if it’s his kid. (Sorry for off topic)

As soon as you get to the place in  Canada where you would like to live sign up in every recruitment agency and remember that keeping good relationships with people who work there is essential for getting a job, because only from those people it depends whether they get you a job or no.

Call them often!

When you work for a Temp Agency, then sometimes they will have nothing for you, that’s why it’s best to sign up to few of them. But when you are without a job call them, once a day, just asking if there is ANYTHING you could do, they won’t mind, they are used to it, so you better get used to it too.

Of course, there are downsides of getting a job through Recruitment Agency. An agency earns money each hour that you work. They “sell” your work to a company that they cooperate with, so that company, pays let’s say 11$ per hour of your work, but you get only 9$, the  2$left goes to recruitment agency. It’s a good place to find first job, just to make some money for living, so you don’t die of hunger, but in a bigger perspective it’s best to find a job through Job Centre or Friday-Ad or any newspaper that posts job offers.

Keep improving!

In your town, even if it’s small, there has to be a library, there usually you will be able to find out about free courses. Maybe there’s Learn4Life, maybe something else, but there has to be something that will provide you with free improving your skills.
It’s very important to show your employer that your skills and personal development are essential for you and that you are willing to invest energy to learn new stuff.

Most people come to  Canada with some education and some skills and just stay same, get any job and generally stop improving. The key to a real success is to keep improving, learning new stuff, not to be stagnant.

More on this topic in few days when I gather more info and get used to my new job.

If you have an offer of temporary employment, you may be entitled to a Canada Temporary Work Permit. With a Work Permit, you could be in Canada in a matter of weeks to months. A work permit lets you work in Canada temporarily. Many foreign skilled workers who come to Canada on Work Permits can eventually qualify for fast-track Canadian Immigration (Permanent Residency) through one of the Provincial Nomination Programs, the Canadian Experience Class, or Arranged Employment.

 

 

Temporary Work Permits for Foreign Workers in Canada

One of the most often asked questions is how do I find a job in Canada? In fact many people ask us how they can secure a job here
in Canada before starting the immigration process so that they’ll have a job to go to as soon as they land in Canada.

Before we get into how you could go about doing that let’s turn the tables around and look at this from the perspective of the
owner of a Canadian company.

One day he gets a resume and cover letter in the mail applying for a position available at the company. The cover letter further
goes on to state that the applicant isn’t currently living in Canada but is planning to apply for immigration shortly and would
like a job offer from the company.

Now picture yourself as the owner of the company. You’re thinking great…. I’m going to offer this person a job even though I don’t know when they’re going to apply for Canadian immigration. If they actually do apply for immigration to Canada, I’m not the slightest bit sure that they’re even going to be here by the end of this year or the next, if they make it at all.

You are basically expecting a person to choose an uncertain, undecided potential worker over the hundreds of applicants he has
to choose from locally.

I’m sure you’d agree that going about looking for a job in Canada before you even immigrate is futile and a waste of time.

UNLESS….

One of the exceptions to this rule would be if you had a PhD or other invaluable experience in a very specialized field, and that
because of the extremely specialized nature of your work, local Canadian talent would be hard to come by. In cases such as these, get in touch with us and we should be able to expedite the entire immigration process for you with our legal referrals. link

So what does one do? I  tell you it’s either Action or Nothing.

Action

1. Be an Entreprenuer

2. Go for post secondary program for 2 yrs and you will have 3 yrs of work permit issue thereafter. During study you can work part time. ( Brandon University in Manitoba is the cheapest one to study)

3. Perhaps you need to get inside information of employers applying for pre-approval of hiring foreign skilled workers or
those employers applying for LMO to service Canada.Immigration consultant handling this type of employers application for pre- approval & LMO and placement companies involved thereafter hiring of foreign skilled workers( with pre-approval or LMO for employers) can get you good lead.This could be either for work permit for fix period or permanent job with AEO.ON,BC, NB, Nova scotia and Quebec itself are a tough provinces to get in, and its employers do not issue AEOs easily. However, I suggest you try and go for SK and MB. They are growing, a lot of new jobs in different fields are created there, and job offers along with PNP
certificates are issued pretty easily. Also look out for Canada recruitment fairs in Europe. You have to register in advance, they
are normally held in May-June and in November.

Do Nothing

Well, not absolutely nothing.

If….. as is the case with most skilled workers, you want to find a job before landing in Canada and you cannot find a job before
starting the process, then you can still act to mitigate as much risk as possible, by applying for jobs much later in the process.

That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do some research about the economic atmosphere in Canada, and about the industry that you
work in right now of course.

Start the immigration process first and then apply for a job when the immigration process is close to complete. We will tell you
that there should now only be 2 to 3 months or more before your permanent resident visa’s are issued and it should be at this time that you start to look for a job in Canada.

Why don’t you take your first step now by getting a Canadian style resume?

Once you’ve done that, take a look at this page, which will give you a brief overview of Ontario’s economy.

offers, they assist with the process of obtaining a work permit

Portable Business and Careers in demand in Canada

So which skills are most in demand? Here are 10 of the hottest:
 
1.  Information technology.  the fastest-growing category of keywords — including HTML5, Android, mobile app, and social media — were in IT, and for instance  we that Network Systems and Data Communications Analysts fits the bill.

The network systems and data communication analyst career field is projected to grow by 30 percent from 2008 – 2018. The rapid spread of computers and technology has demanded an increase in highly skilled workers to develop and maintain systems for new technologies. Systems analysts typically solve problems related to computer technology to meet organizational needs. Network systems and data communications analysts are expected to be among the fastest.

You don’t need a magic wand to notice that it is a  Portable Career and business  in demand in Canada.

The computer software engineer career field is projected to increase by 21 percent since the year 2018. Computer software engineers generally design and develop new computer software systems by incorporating new technologies in a growing range of applications.  Openings for software developers who specialize in applications will rise by more than one-third (34%) since 2018, we are in 2021….rising pay in these fields reflects the surge in demand. What would we do without computers and technology  today? it’s the hottest of all.
 
2. Health care professionals. Partly due to the aging in Canada, health care has been hot for a while now, and the trend shows no sign of slowing. not all Portables but the field of Medical Records and Health Information Technicians , Physical Therapist Aides,  opticians, Veterinary Technologists and Technicians and Fitness Trainers and Aerobics Instructors are. You can open many business with them too. Will the world move forward without health professionals? Nope…..remember you need all your organs, limbs and mind….The health field is always a good investment and it’s always in demand. Can you do much without health? i don’t think so.

3.  Bilingual Health care management and support staff. Don’t have the training or experience to work directly with patients? No worries. “People often overlook the fact that businesspeople run health care companies. “With all the change happening in the system now, there is churn as well as growth. We’re constantly seeing new openings in general management, finance, marketing, human resources, you name it.” Being able to communicate in another language is an asset and it’s very portable.
 
4. Engineers. Note to college students who want their pick of job offers when they graduate: Consider majoring in engineering. A whopping 88% of employers in a new poll by the Society for Human Resource Management bemoaned the difficulty of finding enough engineers to hire.  Civil engineers are in demand too.

 
5. Industrial skills. Think Canadian  manufacturing is slowing down? Think again. Electricians, carpenters, welders. Moreover.  “We’re seeing an increase in industrial hiring in logistics, supply-chain management, and plant management.” As more companies go global, demand for expertise in logistics — the art and science of moving stuff efficiently from one place to another — will continue to heat up.
 
 
6. Life sciences and biotech. Medical innovators ranging in size from Big Pharma down to biotech startups are on a hiring binge. As with health care companies in general, these employers will also need managers and support staff .
 
7. Salespeople/Customer representative. Selling has historically been the closest thing there is to a recession-proof career, and this economic downturn is no exception.  Since they’re the ones bringing the dough in the door, salespeople are often the first to be hired and last to get laid off.  
8. Accounting and finance. Demand for accountants and finance mavens (particularly forensic accountants and compliance specialists) has been climbing steadily for the past several years.
 
9. Discount retailers. “Not to mention any specific company names — everyone knows who they are, anyway — but the big locally discount store companies have flourished during this recession.

 
10. Private equity or wealth firms. Recruiters report that private equity firms are actively seeking management talent for their portfolio companies “across all industries and all functional areas. “They’re poaching already-employed, seasoned managers from big companies — people who can step into either a turnaround situation or a pre-IPO company and make it work. These are challenging jobs, and could be a real feather in a manager’s cap if he or she can bring it off successfully.”

Effective immediately, to be eligible to apply as a federal skilled worker, applicants must either have a job offer, or they must have experience in one of 29 in-demand occupations. These occupations were identified through analysis of updated labour market information and consultations with provinces, territories, stakeholders and the public.

but really the Canadian Government endures to receive requests in its general package of Federal skilled workers (FSWP) currently in 25 of the 29 occupations registered in governmental way.

Following 29 highly demanded professions come in new list.

If you are a skilled worker who has had one year of continuous full-time or corresponding part-time paid work experience in no less than one of the following eligible occupations within the last 10 years:

  • 0631: Restaurant and Food Service Managers
  • 0811: Primary Production Managers (Except Agriculture)
  • 1122: Professional Occupations in Business Services to Management
  • 1233: Insurance Adjusters and Claims Examiners
  • 2121: Biologists and Related Scientists 2151: Architects
  • 3111: Specialist Physicians 3112: General Practitioners and Family Physicians
  • 3113: Dentists
  • 3131: Pharmacists
  • 3142: Physiotherapists
  • 3152: Registered Nurses
  • 3215: Medical Radiation Technologists
  • 3222: Dental Hygienists & Dental Therapists
  • 3233: Licensed Practical Nurses

  • 7371: Crane Operators
  • 7372: Drillers & Blasters – Surface Mining, Quarrying & Construction
  • 8222: Supervisors, Oil and Gas Drilling and Service

For the detail in the description of each occupation and its various titles and offices, should consult the official website of the National Occupational Classification NOC.   The Canadian government uses the National Occupational Classification system called (National Occupational Classification NOC). This system categorizes occupations in demand in the Canadian job market based on the following criteria:  

• “O” in management occupations, positions in the management, coordination and supervision.  

• Proficiency Level “A”: occupations that usually require college education.  

• Proficiency “B” occupations that require technical education (college) or specialized learning.

 • Proficiency “C” occupations that require secondary education (high school) or specific training.

 • Proficiency “D” occupations where training is given directly in the work.   National Occupational Classification:

The following is a condensed version of the major professions, specialties and professions that require the Canadian labor market, on the basis of the “National Occupational Classification.” Professions are included only in the categories “O”, “A” and “B”, as these take into account the Canadian point system that evaluates the capabilities of potential immigrants.   The general areas of competence of this classification are:  

• Business, Finance and Administration  

• Natural and applied sciences and related occupations

 • Health  • Social Sciences, Education, Government Service and Religion  

• Arts, Culture, Recreation and Sport  

• Trade, Transport, Equipment Operation, and related professions  

• Raw Materials Industry  

• Processing, Manufacturing and Utilities   Computer professionals and highly skilled Systems  During 1997, established a pilot program that enables Canadian employers, attract highly qualified professionals in the technical areas of Computing and Systems (software). This approach facilitates the recruitment of these staff on a temporary basis, without the necessary validation of a Human Resource Center.   This plan responds to the shortage of workers exists in Canada in these specialties and the prevailing demand industries quickly get highly qualified professionals and computer technicians.  Graduates in branches of Engineering, Information Systems or other technology-related areas are encouraged to perform a formal validation of Canadian institutions that apply.  

Nursing:  Nursing is a profession with the highest occupational demand in Canada. The public health system needs to attract as many technical and health professionals. Therefore, the government makes great efforts for recruitment. It is expected that by 2011 and through 2012. The national deficit of nurses in Canada amount to 80 thousand professionals. This is a great opportunity for foreign workers who have experience in the area.  

Care Workers and Health Care at Home (“Caregivers”)

There is special interest in working in Canadian homes remain full-time care of children, disabled people and, especially, the elderly. Over 4 million people in Canada are over 65. In fact, 1 in 7 Canadians is part of the so-called third age.

Professionals in the field of health and health care are scarce in Canada, which opens up to foreign employment opportunities in this field.   To gain approval, you must also demonstrate that you have enough money to support. There are many other options to immigrate to Canada as a skilled worker. If you do not meet the criteria required by the Federal Government, we invite you to read our other sections on the various provincial programs and  A complement MI – 4 has made permissible for global PhD students to put on for enduring habitation in FSWP, however missing the further features of the unaffected FSWP.   It stood experiential that certain works fulfill additional nippily than others.

As of December 8, 2011, masses have been decided for four of the 29 occupations. This shows that the applicants to these occupations could no longer rub in further down the FSWP, till the CAP is re-established in July 2012.   Though, the 25 additional occupations are exposed now. Certain of them such as GPs and dentists are probable to be the next, with 350 requests previously putative by the CIC. Applicants for these occupations must act rapidly to safe a location in the lot of pay for this time.
