How to Find a Canadian Work Visa Sponsor Employer

The hardest part about coming to Canada on an employment visa has to be finding an employer to provide your visa sponsorship so you can come to Canada to work for them.  While it is possible to come to Canada to work without an employer sponsor, it is much easier to get a sponsor work visa.

Fill an Employers Need

Employers who cannot find the employees they need in Canada will be happy to find someone anywhere who can fill their need.  Look through want-ads and at job Listing pages for companies who are hiring many employees, or who have been posting the same job for months.  Those employers may be getting desperate and may be more willing to go through the immigration process to fill their employment needs.

Employment-visa Friendly Employers

Employers with a history of hiring foreign workers are more likely to hire you than employers who don’t have much experience with the process. There are large corporations with departments dedicated to bringing in foreign workers, and there are smaller employers who have had success in bringing foreigners to work in Canada. so they are more likely to do so again. Look through company directories to see if you can find foreign workers.  Read press releases from companies regarding hiring foreigners and keep your eyes open for employers who are advertising abroad.

Use Your Network

Start by asking everyone you know if they know anyone who has been hired by a company in Canada and find out who their employer is.  The next step is to contact those people in Canada.  Any connection you have in Canada is a person with whom you should talk.  Ask your Canadian connections if they can check job postings or if they can ask people they know about companies that have immigration departments or immigration attorneys on staff.  Those companies are most likely willing to hire foreign workers. 

Contact the Employer

Once you determine what employers might be willing to hire foreign workers, you have to reach out to them.  Use any names you might have as connections and try to have a name of a specific person at the employer to contact.  It will be your responsibility to prove to the employer that your skills and talents are worth the process they will have to go through to bring to Canada to work for them.

How to find work in Winnipeg, Canada

In Manitoba it is each person’s responsibility to find a job. The way of looking for work may be quite different than in your home country. There are government and community agencies that will help you learn job search skills and help you find opportunities.

STEPS in your job search

  1. Job search skills: Your first step is to have a plan. By knowing where to go and what to do you will achieve your goal.
  2. Resumé, cover letter, application forms: These are your basic “tools” to tell employers the skills and experience that you can offer.
  3. Where to find jobs openings: Now that you’re ready you need to find an employer who’s ready to hire you. Get in touch with Canadian companies advertising employment opportunities.
  4. Job interview: Meeting your potential employer for the first time is the crucial moment. Work experience, language and culture all play a part in this one-on-one meeting.

Winnipeg is pretty accepting of new immigrants. You won’t be mistreated or anything. Also, if you are from certain European nations, you might have easier time. Winnipeg has a large population of Eastern European immigrants and people who are descended from Eastern Europeans, mostly Ukrainians and a significant number of Russians.

Also, keep in mind that Winnipeg is a blue-collar working-class and middle-class city. Don’t expect things like a lot of trendy nightclubs or five-star restaurants or things like that. There are a lot of good restaurants serving North American cuisine and various ethnic restaurants, but they are very causal places. The Employment outlook in all Canada will vary depending on your profession. Research type of business/position are you in.

The upsides to Winnipeg are that it is a pretty cheap city and pretty accepting of immigrants, it is certainly less expensive than most cities in European and it is cheaper than many cities in Canada and the US. Housing is pretty affordable. Today you can find someone  paying about $500 a month for pretty nice one bedroom apartment in an area within walking distance of a shopping center and was surrounded by a number of convenience stores and so on.

Canadian Provinces Looking for workers

Canada is a favorite working destination for people of diferent countries. Many of them that come to work strive to improve their English or French speaking skills in order to be able to communicate well when assigned to a Engish or French speaking city in Canada. Canada has opened its doors for employment and immigration and this has attracted many inmigrants to migrate and work in the country.

Many Canadian companies also prefer hiring foreign nationals from certain places than from another as from their experience, those employees are more hardworking, patient, flexible and very serious with their duties and responsibilities than others.

We publish information about Foreign Workers job openings in Canada. it was reported that 165,000 workers are needed for British Columbia, Canada.  This is part I of a series on the issue for Alberta, Winnipeg and Saskatchewan.


In December 2008  the Alberta government announced that it will be investing more than CDN$5 million a year in order to increase the province’s nursing workforce. The province is looking for healhtcare workers.

 Nurses are not the only healthcare workers that Alberta is in desperate need of at this moment in time, though. The most recent data released by the Government of Alberta suggests that the province is currently short of 5,496 healthcare workers, including nurses. Pharmacists, health aides, speech language pathologists, physical therapists, and physicians are other healthcare occupations which are presently deemed to be much in demand in the province. The same government data also anticipates that there could be as many as 16,000 healthcare job shortages in the province come 2016.

One of the main ways in which the province od Alberta is attempting to bring workers are

1. A 22-day pilot offshore assessment programme that performed assessments for nurses in the United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates and Qata.

2. Working alongside health employers on international recruitment campaigns.

3. A new Health Workforce Action Plan.

4. Internationally trained registered nurses seeking to be licensed in Alberta can now  send applications to the College and Association of Registered Nurses of Alberta (CARNA).

5.  Learn and Apply through The Provincial Nomination Programme

6. Check Canada regional occupation lists or simple go direct where Companies vacancies are.

So whether you are a nurse, a pharmacist, a GP or a physical therapist Alberta is just one Canadian province that is likely to welcome your skills. And if the experiences of the doctors mention above are anything to go by, you’ll quite welcome Alberta, too.

Finding Canadian Employment Opportunities Is A Full-Time Job

Many people these days dream of being hired or  find an employment opportunity in Canada . Unfortunately, most people have no idea how to go about finding jobs or working abroad. Even the process of seeking overseas contract jobs–let alone permanent employment–seems intimidating, and they just give up.

The fact is, it’s difficult enough for many people to find jobs in their home countries. There’s no quick and easy way to find high-paying job in Canada, especially if you don’t want to commit yourself to moving forever into the country where you plan to live and work.

Why is it so hard to find international jobs? The same reason it’s hard to find jobs in other fields, where there are more qualified people than there are jobs to go around. Sure, many countries, such as the United States, are awash in job opportunities–for citizens. However, for an American to find work overseas and remain a US citizen requires no small amount of finesse.

Canadian  job opportunities are a matter of networking and “who you know” as much as they are a matter of your qualifications. This is true of most jobs, to some extent, but it is particularly true of employment opportunities abroad. Indeed,  employment opportunities abroad are often more a matter of vigorous research and social networking than they are of your qualifications for the job.

Many people fail to find the employment they want overseas because they are actually to restricted in their efforts. They don’t apply for jobs that they can do, because they think that they lack experience. However, with  opportunities abroad, it’s often less a matter of how much experience you have, than it is a matter of being in the right place at the right time.

Canadian employment opportunities are often inadequately promoted. If you look on a big job postings site, or into the “classifieds” section of the newspaper (how old-fashioned), you’ll find countless postings for jobs in your city, or in your country. You’ll probably find almost no postings for it and a lot of competition.

For Canadians itself, the surest path to short-term work is typically through the federal  and provincial government. However, like all governments, Canadian government tends to be considerably less flexible in how it runs itself than private organizations. This is as true of its hiring practices is as it is of any other aspect of its organization. The federal and provincial government and its subcontractors have a narrow pool of contractors from which they hire. Your tasks, as someone searching for a Canadian employment opportunity, is to insinuate yourself into that circle.

If you are not an Canadian citizen or Canadian permanent resident you must obtain a visa to live and work in Canada. How to get a visa? You apply for the most convenient one, under Canadian Skilled Migration Program; such a visa may authorise a temporary stay or permanent residence in Canada. There are several ways to obtain a work visa:

1. You may wish to seek to have an Canadian employer to sponsor you; this may be for a temporary work visa or permanent migrant visa.

2. You may wish to apply for a permanent migrant visa as an independent migrant under the  Skilled Migration scheme – without any sponsorship.

If you wish to pursue the employer-sponsored stream then please let us know the details of the job/s in which you are interested and we will make initial contact with the employer. Further involvement will then be between the prospective employer and yourself.

Under the employer sponsorship arrangements the applications including your visa application must be lodged with the Department of Immigration and Citizenship of Canada and we expect that advice on this will be given to you by your sponsor during the process. You should not lodge a visa application until you have an employer who has agreed to sponsor you and that employer has had their sponsorship approved by the Immigration authorities.

If you wish to apply as an Independent migrant you should fully inform yourself of the requirements, including qualifications assessment and the Points Test. Such visa applications are also lodged with Immigration of Canada.

Having given you this brief information we strongly recommend that you look up the website of Canadian Immigration Department – select “Visas & Immigration” and then “Workers” to obtain more detailed information on visa types and requirements.

Tanta es la angustia y la incertidumbre que provoca la falta de trabajo que mucha gente se tranca y encara sus búsquedas laborales sin ninguna estrategia. Se dan así casos de profesionales con un alto nivel de capacitación, totalmente “perdidos” y confusos pretendiendo encaran cualquier trabajo aunque de eso no sepan casi nada.

La mejor estrategia consiste en solicitar la entrevista explicitando que el objetivo de la misma es pedir informacion sobre su búsqueda laboral y recabar su opinión como experto sobre lo que está sucediendo en el mercado en esta época de crisis. Ahi debe  aplicar las técnicas de networking al máximo y además de asi aprender a conocer el mercado objetivo canadiense, donde le toca hacer  mas contactos.

Una vez en la entrevista el objetivo en esta etapa es conseguir entre 10 y 12  y hasta, tal vez, 14 entrevistas en diversas compañias en una semana. Seguramente cada uno de ellas le aportará una visión distinta y por lo tanto un valiosísimo abanico de expectativas o sea aplicar las tecnicas para encontrar y aprender mas del mercado laboral.

Encontrar un trabajo de medio día solamente puede ayudarte a seguir buscando otro trabajo y mientras tanto poder mantenerte. Sin embargo, no dejes que este trabajo le dificulte la meta principal de encontrar el empleo de tiempo completo que desea.


Despejar la mente es tan importante como llenarla de preocupación por encontrar un trabajo. Por eso hacé lo que más te guste en tu tiempo libre, como los fines de semana. No tengas tu mente ocupada las 24 horas del día en conseguir trabajo.


Necesita conseguir algo y debe poner todas las energías en eso, por eso mismo tomalo como un trabajo. Hagalo profesionalmente y considere ese día de búsqueda como un trabajo y no como tiempo perdido.


Muchas veces desecharás algunos trabajos por considerarlos inferiores a lo que estabas realizando antes. Pero en el mundo corporativo, siempre hay algo mejor esperándolo allá afuera. No te guíe solamente por lo que el aviso diga, averigue de qué se trata. Espere oportunidades. Como dice el refrán “las cosas buenas llegan al que sabe esperar”.


Dedicarte a una sola forma de buscar trabajo no es satisfactorio. Utilizá todos los recursos y medios de que dispongas: el periódico, Internet, llamadas a amigos y a contactos, etc. No seas estático o pasivo y verás que pronto conseguirás trabajo.


Verás que tu familia y tus amigos son los mejores aliados para pasar el momento, ya que ellos también alguna vez pasaron por lo mismo. Ellos siempre estarán allí para apoyarlo.


Muchas personas trabajan mejor cuando tienen un listado de tareas a desempeñar escritas, y buscar trabajo no es muy diferente. Anotá tus tareas importantes para cada día de la semana y los lugares a los que vas a ir a buscar trabajo.


Siempre es bueno tener una actitud positiva en una entrevista. Que sepan que estás interesada en el trabajo y dispuesto a dar lo mejor para lograrlo.


Es obvio que luego de estos consejos no es seguro que serás más feliz a la hora de buscar trabajo (especialmente cuando se vuelva desalentador el panorama), pero es una gran oportunidad de que sean positivas las cosas que antes eran negativas, sobre todo si podés tener la visión de que está por comenzar algo nuevo y excitante, en comparación a perder algo viejo que ya no lo satisfacía.
