Best Jobs options for Canadian Immigrants

Best Jobs options for Canadian Immigrants. Repackage yourself to get the job you want !

We are not advocationg nor will advocate for non-degree professionals. we strongly believe and support highly educated professionals ( a college diploma Or a diploma from a trade school Or a diploma from a correspondance course, certificate, licence, credentials etc).

Passing at Diploma level isn’t straightforward, so the failure rate is far higher than at certificate level, but many people do manage to pass first time around! There are assessed and observed lessons to be taught, plus assignments and written examinations to do.

Is it worth doing a Diploma? If you are serious about any profession longer term and want a greater chance of promotion or job security, then the answer is a resounding “yes”. Doing a Diploma is hard work, but very interesting.

The meaning to have a diploma or certificate is to legally and theoracally show that you have been exposed to the established and recognized knowledge of a particular discipline and that you are able to exemplify that knowledge and understanding in an applicable and relevant way.

Now as foreign born, international trained Professional; temporary worker and possible skilled inmmigrant, there is a secret that everybody knows…once or while applying for work in Canada… a lack of canadian education or credentials makes from difficult to imposible for getting a job.

There  is three solutions to that, they  are:

1. Get your own business

2. Apply for jobs that don’t have a  diploma as a requirement.

3.  Become a well-qualified job applicant

Get your own business:  Coming to Canada as a Business Immigrant: 

The old adage goes: failure to plan is a plan for failure.  Whether you are building a business from scratch or buying a business, you should not skip this important step … even if it means that you just jot your ideas down on scraps of paper or a napkin!

If you already run a business  the Business Immigration Program seeks to attract experienced business people to Canada who will support the development of a strong and prosperous Canadian economy.

Business immigrants are expected to make a C$400,000 investment or to own and manage businesses in Canada.

Canada has three classes of business immigrants:

•entrepreneurs and
•self-employed persons.
Each application can be made for only one class and cannot be changed once the application is submitted. The criteria you must meet to qualify are different for each class.

2. Apply for jobs that don’t have a  diploma as a requirement:

1. Careers in Health Care Abound
2. Careers in Public Safety are Growing
3. Careers in Information Technology are Always Around

In general don’t lie about anything in your background. Lying is wrong. Anything you lie about can be found out.

Become a well-qualified job applicant.

You can do this through:

1. Exploiting your transferable skills.
2. Listing school and unpaid experience in the main experience section of your resume.
3. Considering a chrono-functional resume.
4. Don’t apply for jobs for which you’re grossly underqualified, but do remember that job postings and employment ads are often employer wish lists.
5. Consider a two-column or “t-formation” cover letter.
6. Indicate your flexibility and willingness to learn or gain additional training.
7. Consider applying for that job while simultaneously indicating a willingness to be considered for a job that reports to the high-level position.

8. Try finding out more about the employer’s needs, problems, and challenges than what is readily apparent in want ads and job postings. The trick is to discover needs that you can fulfill, paving the way to perhaps creating a position for yourself. How do you find out about these needs? Performing company research is a good start, and you can find great tools in our Guide to Researching Companies, Industries, and fields in Canada but the best approach is informational interviewing, you can use Linkedin for this.

9. Consider a career portfolio with work samples.
Seeing is believing. If you interview with an employer who is not quite convinced of your qualifications, you can bolster your case with a portfolio that shows your ability to do the job.

10. If you can’t get an interview that would enable you to show your portfolio? Create a Web-based portfolio with links to samples of your work. Include the URL to your portfolio in your resume and cover letter and encourage employers to check it out.


If you meet the basic eligibility requirements, the company evaluates and then ranks your work experience, accomplishments, education, training, and overall qualifications background against the qualification requirements of the position. You will receive a score or ranking based on how closely your background matches with the requirements of the position. Job applicants who receive the highest scores or rank in the top category are referred to the selecting official.


Trades and Crafts “blue collar” jobs have a separate qualification system from “white collar” positions. Applicants for the apprenticeship programs for the various trades must demonstrate the potential to succeed in the job and the ability to complete classroom and on-the-job training. For journeyman or senior level jobs, applicants for trade jobs (for example, electronic equipment maintenance; electricians; plumbers, and carpenters) are rated against competencies/knowledge, skills, and abilities (commonly known as job elements) that are required for successful performance. Each trade has one or more critical job elements that applicants must meet to be rated basically eligible for the job. To be basically qualified, applicants must demonstrate mastery of the specified job elements through work experience, training, or tests.


If you have been in the job market for awhile and have accumulated an extensive work history, you may be well qualified for many positions even without a college degree. Except for certain professional and scientific positions discussed under this blog. The nature of your specialized experience is what really counts.
