The Canadian job market & Employment opportunities in it.

Immigrants come to Canada with dreams of a better life. But their job prospects here are often so minimal, that dream sometimes becomes a nightmare.

In order to increase your changes for a better employment you do need to master the following steps:


Writing Your Resume – Your resume is the most effective way to sell yourself.

Job Hunting Tips: -Those who find jobs are successful because they know how to conduct an effective job search.

Preparing For Job Interviews – Perhaps the most important key to a successful interview is to be well prepared for it and to have some knowledge of what to expect.
Employment Programs – Check sections for information on Canadian Government Employment Programs.

Online Employment Resources –  Here you’ll find a list of links in the following categories: 2Careers, Labour Market Info, Resume Help, Starting Your Own Business, Volunteering and Job Search Resources.

There are tons of jobs out there that the Web knows nothing about!
The majority of Canada’s economic growth is concentrated in the four major cities: Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver and Montreal. Unemployment is higher in the Atlantic Provinces, such as Newfoundland and Labrador and Prince Edward Island. If you are seeking employment in Canada and you do not posses a work permit, you should be aware that it is more difficult to find a job this way. A prospective employer would need to obtain a work permit on your behalf. Many companies are reluctant to do this as it involves spending time and money with lawyers.

Qualifications and skills

If you are looking for a well-paid professional position, high bilingualism with paid for. I mean English and French language  skill ability is essential. In Quebec, companies will require excellent knowledge of the French language. Always English-French bilinguals are in demand; many companies have to do business with both English- and French-speaking Canada.
It is important that you find out what types of jobs are in demand now and in the future. This information will be extremely useful in your employment or 2career planning
There is also a significant underground job market in Canada. Many individuals working on construction sites and some other manual labour positions may not have a work permit. Although this is also an option, we do not recommend working without a work permit as this increases the risk of being deported and being forbidden to come back to Canada.
