Canada: Sample arrange employment offer letters

A job offer letter is the minimum promise protection you should have in any work opportunity requiring you to resign your current job or to relocate out of your place of residence. A job offer letter is a condensed pre-employment contract outlining the basics of your employment. In small companies a job offer letter may be written without a lawyer’s help.

A written agreement also benefits an employer because you as an employee agree to provide specific work benefits and make certain promises (like not revealing company secrets or stealing company customers). Employment relationships are increasingly contract-oriented for professional, managerial, technical, and administrative positions.

Arranged Employment is possible when a Canadian employer extends an offer of full-time permanent employment in Canada* to a foreign skilled worker.  The foreign skilled worker’s Canadian Immigration (Permanent Resident) Visa will be expedited so that the worker can come to Canada and start working for the Canadian employer quickly.

Arranged Employment is one of ways to qualify for a Canada Permanent Resident Visa through the Federal Skilled Worker category of immigration.

If an Employer is being paid money to offer employment, it is obviously not a genuine offer. Anyone participating in such a scheme is involved in a fraudulent practice.

Moreover, HRDC is now starting to question employers closely about the relationship between the employer and the employee and the motivation for offering the job on an indeterminate basis. Similarly, at the visa interview, the visa officer will closely question the applicant in similar terms. The applicant must also satisfy the officer that he or she is capable of performing the job and likely to accept the job upon arrival in Canada.

I always advise  foreign  job-seekers to get job offers in writing if employers don’t offer any form of contract. If an employer seems unwilling, one way around the issue is to write an acceptance letter of the job offer in which you spell out what you understand to be the conditions of employment.

For a position such as sales or marketing  where there are various salary issues, including commission levels, it is extremely important to get the specifics in writing.

Canada immigration: Business people

Business visitor is a separate category with separate requirements. Business visitors do not require a work permit. They may still need a temporary resident visa.  Business visitors do not need a work permit. They may still need a temporary resident visa.  A business visitor is someone who comes to Canada to engage in international business activities without directly entering the Canadian labour market.

Business visitors must prove the following:
their main source of payment is outside Canada and
their main place of business is outside Canada
Business people include certain people entering Canada under the following free trade agreements:
North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)
Business people covered by NAFTA do not need a labour market opinion from Human Resources and Social Development Canada (HRSDC).
This means that Canadian employers do not need to have a job offer approved by HRSDC to employ a United States or a Mexican business person, as set out in NAFTA.
Business people covered by NAFTA must, however, comply with the general provisions on temporary entry to Canada.
NAFTA applies to four specific categories of business people: business visitors, professionals, intra-company transferees, and traders and investors.

A professional must:
be qualified to work in one of the more than 60 professions listed in Appendix 1603.D.1 of Chapter 16 of NAFTA (for example, accountant, computer systems analyst, engineer, management consultant and technical publications writer) and have pre-arranged employment with a Canadian enterprise in an occupation that matches the qualification.
An intra-company transferee must:
have worked continuously for at least one year in the preceding three years for the same or affiliated employer in the United States or Mexico
be transferred to Canada to work temporarily for the same or an affiliated employer and
work in a capacity that is managerial, executive or that involves specialized knowledge.

A trader or an investor must:
be seeking to carry out substantial trade in goods or services, mainly between Canada and her or his country of citizenship, or conduct substantial investment activities in Canada, in a supervisory or an executive capacity, or in a capacity that involves essential skills
meet additional requirements under NAFTA and
have a work permit.
Canada-Chile Free Trade Agreement (CCFTA)
The CCFTA is modelled on NAFTA and makes it easier for Canadian and Chilean citizens to temporarily enter each of the two countries.
The rules and requirements are similar to those under NAFTA and cover the four categories of business people: business visitors, professionals, intra-company transferees, and traders and investors.
General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS)
Under GATS, Canada has committed to making it easier for certain business people who are foreign service providers in certain sectors to access the Canadian market. The commitments apply to service providers from more than 140 World Trade Organization member countries.
 

Three categories of business people are covered: business visitors, professionals and intra-company transferees.

Business immigrant/Immigrant Entreprenuer/Canada Business Visa

Business immigrant:  Implementing Business Opportunity Ideas That Have Potential To Create Cash .
 
Immigrants have been the entrepreneurial spark plugs of cities from Vancouver to Halifax. One-quarter of Canada publicly traded, venture capital-backed companies started in the past 15 years were founded by immigrant entrepreneurs.The current market capitalization of these firms exceeds $200 billion, and they employ more than 220,000 people in Canada and 100,000 internationally. Immigrants have had the greatest impact in the fields of IT, life sciences, and particularly in the high-tech manufacturing sector, where 40% of publicly traded, venture-backed firms operating in Canada today were founded by immigrants.

Asian Indian entrepreneurs have proven extraordinarily successful in Canada technology sector but Koreans and Hong Kong Chinese immigrant entrepreneurs too. Though  immigration reform is a political hot potato,  success has been also convincing the federal and provincial goverment that job creation is a non-partisan issue. No doubt Canada is first interest in immigrants who are intelligent, wealthy and entrprenurial.

Once in Canada some that already established enterprises in their countries of origin or others that wish to start businesses in Toronto because of problems in the Cana-dian job market.

 Within this article today I’ll look at a couple of ways that you can go about making  online business concepts run from home. Many people have come up with home-based business ideas but have found many of those ventures to be unsuccessful. Inside this article today are some research tools to help find out whether or not your business can become successful. The 1st home business concept which may give you help is found at worldwidebrands.com. This website offers an online shipping directory to help you find wholesalers.

These wholesalers will ship product to your customers so you don’t have to worry about keeping product in your house. This will enable you to sell different items on eBay or on your own site without needing to worry about sinking your money into inventory or on highly priced shipping to bring the products to you. This can allow you to find what products sell very well and then follow these trends fast assuming your wholesaler has this actual product in stock. The 2nd home business concept is starting  a Membership site, but what is a membership site ? 
A membership site  is a website were people sign up as members to receive exclusive information in a niche market. People join for a selective period of time to enjoy the features and functions that only can be found at the site.  The special content which can be found only at the site which are niche market specific. These include tutorials, webinars,Audio and video clips, PLR books, live coaching sessions etc.   Membership websites come in all shapes and sizes. Finding the right model for your niche is an important first step to building a successful membership website. The following resource will outline the advantages of each type of membership model, helping you to deliver your content in an effective and profitable way.
 
1) Content Publisher
The publisher model is the most common membership website model. This model will require the owner to produce content for a specific target market on an ongoing basis. Subscribing members will have access to new articles, as well as previously added content.
 
2) FedEx
The FedEx model provides a “package” of information to your members on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis. This type of membership model allows you to present your resources to subscribing members at scheduled times. If you choose to deliver your package monthly, your new members will only see month one. In month two they will see month two and month one. Members will only have access the content they paid for.
 
3) Fixed Term
The fixed term model is a membership model that offers a course of study for a predetermined time period. Rather than asking your visitors to subscribe for an unlimited time period, this model sets a fixed term of three, six or nine months for example. It provides your visitors with an end in sight. The established end to your program that this model offers will likely increase your retention rate.
 
4) Modular Course
The modular course model allows you offer training in a way that moves members from one modual to the next at the appropriate time. You may choose to include an online test that members must take before proceeding to the next module. This test will guarantee that they have absorbed the content before moving on to the next module. This approach will likely enhance your members percieved value of your program, as your training is structured in a way that will consistantly deliver results.
 
5) Protected Products
The protected products model allows you to sell digital products in a protected members-only area. This model is an excellent choice for a free content-based website that offers a few special products to subscribing members.
 
6) Coaching
The coaching model allows you to create a general information area for all of your visitors, and multiple membership areas for more specialized instruction. If this website functioned as a coaching model, resources in the general area would include content on search engine optimization and website marketing. In the specialized instruction areas you would find information on developing an AdSense ad-supported website, an affiliate product/service website, or a subscription membership website.
 
7) Everything-and-Kitchen-Sink Model
The everything-and-the-kitchen-sink model allows you to create a membership website that combines elements from several models to meet the needs of your online business. Membership website owners would have the advantage, for example, of offering general content, and a coaching course for 12 weeks to silver members, while offering special digital products to gold members at a higher subscription price in a separate protected area.
Hopefully these making online home business ideas will help you out in your hunt for a great idea where you are and when you apply as business immigrant to Canada. Each one of these ideas shouldn’t cost much money it can have a great effect in your pocketbook in the long run.

While I wouldn’t recommend starting an online business for everyone, for many people it’s one of the best ways to generate income without a regular job. It has certainly worked disgustingly well for me.

Immigration Canada: Bilingual Canada: French

Canada is officially a bilingual country but, with nearly 60% of the population speaking English as their mother-tongue, and only 24% speaking French as their first language. Canada is mostly a bilingual nation on “paper only” but curiously French is not the only linguistic minority in Canada

There are two varieties of French in Canada: Acadian and French-Canadian (or Québécois French), and they differ in terms of accent and local lexis.  Acadians are descendents of 17th century settlers in the province of Nova Scotia, and French-Canadians are generally known as descendents of French settlers in the province of Québec in the same century. 

The French language spoken in Canada (both Québécois and Acadian varieties) is substantially different from Standard French from France.  This is because of a long history of French in Canada, with the original settlers coming from parts of France other than Paris, who continued to use the French from the Ancien Régime, while the Standard French in France used today evolved instead from 18th century bourgeois Parisian French.   The pronunciation and vocabulary of French in Canada is quite different from International French, and a French person or a Belgian might find it difficult to understand a Québecer, like a Texan might find it hard to understand a Welsh-speaker, for example. 

Canadian French also contains a large number of Anglicisms, which is to be expected, since Canada is a bilingual country, and Québec borders the United States (although while French people say ‘weekend’ and ‘parking’, French-Canadians say ‘fin de semaine’ and ‘stationnement’).  Some popular anglicisms in Québec are: anyway (anyway); chum (male friend, boyfriend); checker (to check); cute (cute).

Canada is often described as a multicultural nation. But what does that mean? Simply stated, it means that Canadians are not of any one cultural background, race or heritage. Instead, Canadians today reflect a vast diversity of cultural heritages and racial groups. This multicultural diversity is a result of centuries of immigration.

The greater the diversity of the racial and cultural mix, the greater the need for tolerance and openness in accepting one another as fellow Canadians. With globalization and the ever-increasing movement of people from one country to another, the challenge of appreciating and accommodating cultural differences has become a universal experience. A multicultural policy that is sensitive to the needs of both long-time residents and the newly arrived will probably meet with the greatest success. Canada’s future depends on the commitments of all its citizens to a unified Canadian identity, while still taking pride in the uniqueness of their individual heritage

It’s very important and helpful if an inmmigrant coming to Canada speaks, write and reads well the French Language.

 Of the 251,511 immigrants officially welcomed to Canada a couple of years ago, approximately 17.8 percent of them arrived directly in Quebec. Most immigrants to Canada come to Ontario, but since the language most commonly used in Quebec is French, that province attracts a lot of immigration from Africa (that includes not only the countries south of the Sahara but also the countries on the Mediterranean) where French is still widely spoken.

But do all immigrants arriving in Quebec speak French? Far from it – 58 percent of the people who decided to land in Quebec in 2006 spoke French or had the basics. The rest did not speak a word. It is no wonder that the Quebec government is dedicating a lot of attention and money to teaching French to the remaining 42 percent.

For obvious reasons, wherever you are, knowing the language is a big help in settling down and absorbing the culture of the country to which you have decided to immigrate. It will help you get a job, find a place to live and make friends. You may be able to survive in Montreal speaking only English, but once you start wandering in the rest of the province, you had better make sure you are good at sign language!

So, what can you do in Quebec to learn French? Well, the government is really helping out. There are several programs in place, or soon to be, to ease you into learning the other official language of Canada (yes, there are 2 official languages here).

The government of Quebec has a program in place, in participation with local universities, settlement agencies and school boards. Before you do anything, you should check out the website of the immigration ministry from the government of Quebec. If your French is not good enough yet, you can still browse through the information in either English or Spanish; just click on the link and it will bring you to the proper page. All the information is centralized there and it will help you decide if you can commit to a 30 hours/week schedule for several weeks, depending on your progress rate and initial knowledge of the language. There are of course different levels of courses, so no matter what your skills are, whether you need to learn the language from a beginner’s level, refresh your school memories or simply make sure that your French is up-to-date and on the same level as the current business environment, you will find something that suits you.

There is also the possibility of doing it part time. In 2006-2007, a total of 9,748 immigrants participated in full time French courses (all levels included) and 10,398 in part time ones. Most of those persons were women, taking advantage of the financial support for day care (see next page). A large majority of the courses were also given in Montreal (approximately 71 percent), but this is not surprising since most of the immigration in Quebec is absorbed by Montreal, much like Toronto in Ontario.

There are, of course, the regular local settlement agencies, or “Carrefours d’intégration” (roughly translated, Integration squares). The services there may vary. 

These Integration squares will likely forward you to the ministry of immigration since the main activity of these organizations throughout the province is to help you find a place to live and of course a job, plus helping with all the administrative formalities that you have to cope with when you arrive in a new country. The other reason why they will do so is because the courses offered are very well-designed and accessible to most of the immigrants. Of course, if you are looking for a very specific kind of course, they will be able to forward you to the proper education facility or company.

There is also an internet based databank of a wide range of exercises (over a thousand), from pronunciation to vocabulary, grammar to educational games. You can access this databank from the immigration Quebec website. This databank was consulted in 2006-2007 more than 232,000 times for the French pages, and more that 17,000 times for the English or Spanish pages.

There is also an online service that should be available in January for those of you who want to learn on their own. The government of Quebec struck a deal with Bell Canada to set up the service which will enable those who already have the basics to improve on them and learn more about the province and the social codes.

The other nice thing about the involvement of the government of Quebec is that they are financially supporting those who apply for French lessons. The assistance is not enough to live off of, but it could help if you have to leave your child in day care for example. However, some conditions apply, so make sure you verify everything before starting. The conditions are standard in every province for this kind of benefits. For example, one of them is that you need to have a landed immigrant status. Follow this link to find all the info you need.

Learning French will open doors both personally and professionally – and not just in Quebec – so it’s something worth doing no matter where in Canada you live either as regular inmigrant or a busisness person.

It has certainly worked disgustingly well for me. If you’re interested in learning more about this option, please check out Start Your Own Successful Online Business   for details.

How to get a job in Canada

1. Create a professional Resume using an unique Resume Builder, online portafolio, store Contacts, make Notes, send Faxes or lastly create your job alerts when registering in canadian employment websites such as workopolis.

2. To get a well paying job, or reasonably well paying, you’re going to need very good spoken English or French with as little accent as possible. Many new immigrants have levels of English or French that is so poor, I couldn’t understand what they were speaking and they hold an MBA from a Canadian University. Many immigrants think that they speak very good English or French which they may be right when comparing the standard of English or French in their home country, but in Canada, their level of spoken English or French  is just very poor. Most companies will not employ people with such a low level of spoken English or French. It simply reflects very badly on the company.

3. It really is very difficult to employ an immigrant based on his/her overseas qualification. No one knows whether your degrees and training is genuine and it is very difficult for the employers to confirm both your training and qualifications. Who knows? This sounds very harsh but that’s the truth of the matter. When you come to Canada you have to start from scratch, if you don’t like it then you have to start your own business. The level of competency from overseas qualifications varies considerably. Some may be very good while some others simply cannot be counted upon.

4. Network. The best companies to work for tend to rely heavily (up to 40%) on employee referrals.[1] Make a list of all of your friends, relatives, and acquaintances.

Touch base with all of your references. The purpose of this is twofold. You can ask them for leads, and you’ll also be refreshing their memory of you in their mind. Use Linkedin and Facebook.

5. Volunteer. Living in Canada and without employment? Volunteering might me a great ‘canadian experience referral” so if you aren’t already, start volunteering for an organization that focuses on something that you’re passionate about. You may end up doing boring or easy work in the beginning, but as you stick around and demonstrate your commitment, you’ll be given more responsibilities

6. 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

While I wouldn’t recommend starting an online business for everyone, for many people it’s one of the best ways to generate income without a job. It has certainly worked disgustingly well for me.

6 Things you need to know before arriving to Canada

1. Bring or have a credit card. They are are the major means of payment in Canada.

Having a credit history is important if you want to get a credit card, a mortgage, oreven to rent an apartment, rent a car. Consumers who have not had an opportunity to establish acredit history, such as recent immigrants and students, may find themselves at adisadvantage when applying for credit products.

Canadian financial services are credit-oriented. However, financial institutions in Canada generally do notrecognize international credit history, making it hard for recent immigrants, even those with years of stablebanking practices in their own country, to access personal and/or business financing. Lack of a Canadian  credit history is a genuine problem for immigrants trying to settle in Canada, especially entrepreneurs  looking to start a business, as it is a barrier to accessing financing, often preventing newcomers fromintegrating and settling into Canadian society.

2. Credit history is the first thing you need to build in Canada

Credit history or credit report is, in many countries, a record of an individual’s or company’s past borrowing and repaying, including information about late payments and bankruptcy. The term “credit reputation” can either be used synonymous to credit history or to credit score.

In Canadea when a customer fills out an application for credit from a bank, store or credit card company, their information is forwarded to a credit bureau. The credit bureau matches the name, address and other identifying information on the credit applicant with information retained by the bureau in its files.That’s why it’s very important for creditors, lenders and others to provide accurate data to credit bureaus.

This information is used by lenders such as credit card companies to determine an individual’s credit worthiness; that is, determining an individual’s willingness to repay a debt. The willingness to repay a debt is indicated by how timely past payments have been made to other lenders. Lenders like to see consumer debt obligations paid on a monthly basis.

Credit history usually applies to only one country. Even within the same credit card network, information is not shared between different countries. For example, if a person has been living in the USA  for many years and then moves to Canada, when they apply for credit cards or a mortgage in Canada, they would usually not be approved because of a lack of credit history, even if they had an excellent credit rating in their home country and even if they had a very high salary in their home country. An immigrant must establish a credit history from scratch in the new country.  Because if not  is usually very difficult for immigrants to obtain credit cards and mortgages until after they have worked in the new country with a stable income for several years.

Some credit card companies (f.e. American Express) can transfer credit cards from one county to another and this way help starting a credit history, check if your credit company can do before you move to Canada.

3. A car is a necessity:

Enviromentally speaking, I support public transportation with all my heart and had supported with my wallet ( I own an adult trike and use TTC), but life in Canada is more suit to the 4 wheels. Driving less and eliminating “unnecessary” car trips has been one of the leading ways people say they save money.  Driving ourselves to work instead of commuting can be the measurement of promotion or getting fired from work, particularly if the everyday route one takes is prone to traffic jams. Driving is also a lot comfortable than sitting in a bus or standing up in a subway train elbow to elbow with other people.

A car’s comfort, however, varies from place to place. If you live in a region where there is minor or no traffic at all, then you have a painless travel life. You also have an easier alternative to take either your car or public transpo without having to worry which is the fastest. You also don’t have to worry consuming more gas because of traffic and pay for the next time you you fill ‘er up

4.  The cost of insurance is significant:

In Canada, unlike other countries insurance in many cases is highly recommended if not mandatory.  If you own a car, a house or just rent an apartment, it is important to have insurance. It is also important to have health and life insurance. If you own or want to buy and drive car, you are required by law to have at the very minimum, liability insurance.  If you want to take out a loan to buy a car or house, the bank or Mortgage Company will require that you purchase insurance to cover the amount you are borrowing for your car to pay for physical damage to your car, or for the value of the house you are purchasing.  Some landlords require you to have renter’s insurance when you sign a lease.  Life and Health insurance is invaluable, especially when you are in an accident or have a major health issue, and you should have at the very least a life insurance policy to cover the cost of a funeral.  Insurance companies occupy    the best buildings in downtown district.

5.  The Canadian job market is hidden . Canada is experiencing a skills shortage in several industries, and employers may view British nationals with the appropriate skills and experience as a valuable resource. However, the graduate labour market is very competitive, and the current recession is contributing to a challenging climate for both Canadian and foreign jobseekers. Try to build a Canadian employment history , to monitor the Canadian job market  and don’t get stuck in dead end jobs or survival jobs.

Where can you find  work?

•Major industries: trade, finance, insurance, real estate and leasing, professional, scientific and technical services, education, health and social care, accommodation and food services.
•Recent growth areas: service industries and information technology.
•Industries in decline: primary sector, manufacturing and utilities.
•Shortage occupations: health sector (physicians, nurses, pharmacists, medical technologists and technicians, nurse aides), management occupations, trade (especially home builders and renovators), occupations related to the oil and gas sector, IT, occupations in social science and government service (including university teachers).
•Major companies: Royal Bank of Canada, Manulife Financial, Bank of Nova Scotia, Toronto-Dominion Bank, EnCana, Sun Life Financial Services, Bank of Montreal, Canadian Imperial Bank, BCE, Imperial Oil.
•Search for more companies: Kompas, Canadian Chamber of Commerce, Yellow Pages Canada.
•Major cities: Ottawa (capital), Toronto (largest), Montreal, Vancouver.

6.  Network, network and network

Join idustries and association , volunteer, ask for information interview, or take bridging programs through your local community college or settlement agency and of course use social media like linkedin and facebook. the canadian welcomes hight skilled  and skilled worker but canadian companies required canadian employment history. before arriving, try to monitor the canadian job market.
