How to go about finding work in Canada (II)

In order to be able to work in Canada, then you must be able to apply for an Canada working visa. You must first verify with the Canadian immigration for the different visa requirements needed for your application. You must make sure that you are able to meet the requirements as fast and smoothly as you could if you want to land a job in Canada.

Once you get a job in  Canada and you can already obtain the Canadian work visa, then you must act immediately in going to Canada so as your visa won’t expire. Just make sure that you are confident enough to show your employer that you are competent and diligent when it comes to your work. You should have the skills that your employer is looking for and it would be much nicer if you have proof or evidence that you have that skill and that you have experience working using that skill. You must go to  Canada prepared.

You must prepare yourself with the different people you will meet in your workplace. You must learn how to deal with different types of people. You must have the patience for people with strong and unlikable attitudes. These are just part of working in  Canada. You must also learn to submit yourself to your boss and follow his commands; but also try to speak out to your boss if you think there is a need to state your point. If you are able to meet these things, then you might be able to migrate to  Canada.

Simply working in Canada is different from Canada migration. To work in  Canada with just a working visa has its limits. It depends upon how long your employer will hire you and you will have to renew your visa every now and then. But if you will be able to become an immigrant in  Canada then you can stay in  Canada  for good. So it is every worker’s dream to become an immigrant in  Canada. And so in order to become one, it is imperative to do best with your work and show signs of you being a good citizen.

Recruiting in the Canadian job market

Recruiting in the Canadian job market
 

Canada’s economy entered the global marketplace long time ago and thanks to the presure or USA or  EU,  what a race. but what does it mean as a job market? Our experts look at what you can expect when recruiting staff from this dynamic  Canadian economy.

Canada has the ninth largest economy in the world- (measured in US dollars at market exchange rates), is one of the world’s wealthiest nations, and is a member of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and Group of Eight (G8). As with other developed nations, the Canadian economy is dominated by the service industry, which employs about three quarters of Canadians. Canada is unusual among developed countries in the importance of the primary sector, with the logging and oil industries being two of Canada’s most important. Canada also has a sizable manufacturing sector, centered in Central Canada, with the automobile industry especially important.

Canada has one of the highest levels of economic freedom in the world so its economy has boosted. This enabled areas in the country like Toronto, City of Vancouver, Calgary, Saskatchewan and Montreal, to improve the infrastructure and to conform to powerful global market guidelines. The result has been an increased GDP growth, a reduction of the public ‘debt to GDP’ ratio, a drop in unemployment from 20 percent to 15 percent in three years, and a lowering of inflation to less than three percent.

However, recent economic downturns in US have affected the Canadian economy growth, especially for the past three years, with growing unemployment rates and difficulties to create employment in an economy heavily based in the industry service. Manufacturing, energy, oil and agriculture along with the Tech industry are economic engine of Canada. Unemployment, in 2011, had reached over 25 percent and 45 percent amongst the youth.

Canada still faces some challenges – including reducing the public sector deficit, further decreasing unemployment, reforming employment  laws and investment regulations, further lowering inflation, and raising per capita GDP – but the country has been moving surely up the ranks in  global’s economic ‘hit parade’.

The Canadian graduate marketplace

With a now history of  great salary  but high unemployment, the current  Canadian market still isn’t an easy one, but it does offer opportunities. In particular,  if you run a company you  should be able to find good candidates for starting positions, hiring managers and overall recruitment.

The first generation after the baby boomers has had the chance to receive a graduate education. Knowledge of foreign languages is becoming a must among Canadian society, the younger generations are more prepared and willing to work in the global marketplace.

According to the Canadian  government, the sectors that have the largest growth perspectives are Health , energy, biotechnology, information technology and the environmental sector.  Canada’s financial hub,  Toronto, is always increasing in importance.

 Energy and the renewable energy sectors (with companies like Irving oil or COS) keep growing without receiving governmental and European funds. Other economic sectors diversify with risk, and some invest in foreign markets such as Asia. (Companies are always looking  for more educated employees with an international background and multi lingual skills to help them manage these projects.)

In the past century, the growth of the manufacturing, mining, and service sectors has transformed the nation from a largely rural economy to a more industrial and urban one.

 

The organisational culture

You don’t see but the organisational culture used to be very hierarchical and bureaucratic, but it is challange due to the influence of American management theories, a growing number of young managers educated abroad and changes in  the Canadian society itself.

However, some things still haven’t changed, for instance detailed job descriptions are now used, and assessment of staff is common. Personal contacts are seen as the most effective route into a job, network; that’s right depending on the importance of your  personal network.

Decisions are still taken at senior or top management level, often by the senior executive alone. To ask subordinates for their opinion about certain actions is seen now seen as weakness and will bring more uncertainty than enthusiasm in  any team. Likewise, now  a ‘compliant’ employee is more appreciated than somebody who would like to instigate change.

Although times are changing, at work people still prefer to have roles clearly differentiated, such as who the decision-maker and who the boss is. Another important aspect to take into account is  Canada’s rooted culture in planning and agendas, or strict sense of punctuality unlike in Southern European or Latin America culture.

 

Canadian Job  applications

When recruiting in a foreign market, it is important to understand how local recruitment habits work. In  Canada, for instance, personal contacts are now seen as the most effective route into a job.

The internet is increasingly becoming an important job-hunting tool, and Canadian employers usually have very attractive job sites.  Online job boards continues to be a great  first source of recruitment (a popular one being workopolis ). However, advertisements in newspapers are widely used by recruitment agencies.

Depending, the ‘money question’ is  tackled in the first job interview, and several interviews, up to seven, are not unusual. The most common number of interviews hovers at about three to four.

At a time, passport or ID numbers are not  included in CVs under the heading ‘personal details’, but employers might expect certified qualifications and diplomas once you join the company or the offer has been made, but usually not before.  On a resume or CV, all former employers are listed, including tasks performed and responsibilities held. Big companies, not to much the smaller ones, request references and testimonials from former employers.

Canada  Immigrant Trust

I wouldn’t have considered Canada as a tax haven, and I would guess that Canadians would agree withme on that! However, I have been informed “Canada lets you set up a 5 year immigrant trust which is   tax free. This basically means that you can move to Canada and, provided you have money, investments or  a business already in place, you can set up an immigrant trust and be tax free for 5 years (on all money other than earned in Canada). Because it takes 3 years to become a citizen you can actuallyget 5 years tax free and change nationality and leave before you get taxed. Once you leave – you remain Canadian but you are not taxable in Canada.

Too good to be true?

With the exception of several situations, it is too good to be true. Like it or not, our government is quite concerned about the loss of tax revenue and goes out of its way to develop tax laws to quell the use of offshore entities for other than legitimate reasons. This position was reinforced with the recent introduction of revisions to the foreign trust rules which go far beyond the current rules and may catch existing structures which were set up years ago.

A non-resident trust, commonly known as an “immigration trust” or an “immigrant trust,” is a provision the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has made to allow immigrants to transition into Canadian tax residency.

Canada’s Income Tax Act allows new immigrants to Canada to benefit from a five year ‘tax holiday’ upon their arrival, which is particularly beneficial to individuals moving to Canada who have a high net worth and retain assets outside of Canada.
It is possible for immigrants to set up an immigration trust and to transfer their foreign assets to that trust before arriving in Canada. As an example, take an individual who plans to reside in Canada and who owns property that generates rental income in his or her country of origin. This individual can then establish an offshore Immigration Trust and transfer the property to that trust. The income earned from the rental of this property will not be taxable by Canadian authorities for a period of sixty months, or five years, from the date the individual becomes a resident of Canada.

Because of this five-year tax holiday, it is possible for an immigrant to acquire Canadian citizenship in just three years, and then choose to become a non-resident for Canadian tax purposes. In this manner, it is possible for foreign earned income and capital gains to never at any point fall into the Canadian tax net

Consulting financial advisers and tax lawyers is helpful in making decisions including when the best time is to arrive in Canada and when to commence tax residency, to gain maximum benefits.

How can I get a job in Canada as a Foreign Worker?

Question:  How can I get a job in Canada as a Foreign Worker?

I can’t find an employer who will even GET BACK TO ME. Where can i find Canadian employers who will consider hiring me as a foreign worker or on a temporary visa or something like that?

Answer

Whether you’re looking for your very first job, switching careers, or re-entering the job market after an extended absence, finding a job in Canada requires at least two main tasks: understanding yourself and understanding the job market.

There are two ways to get into Canada, temporarily (with a visa, “to visit”) and permanently (with permanent residence, “to immigrate”). Visas are somewhat hard to come by unless you’re in a niche market.

Here are several ways to actually get a job.

Research the company:  Canadian Database  for Int’l  Professionals  they put jobs out there by employers who have prior form in recruiting foreign workers.  You can  subscribed  and start  applying to jobs.

Be stable. A company doesn’t want to hire someone with wanderlust who still wants to relocate. Be prepared to outline why you are where you are today, how long you intend to stay there, and why.
Use placement agencies. They sometimes keep a good chunk of your income for themselves, but they can get you decent placements, so you can improve that resume. Never go to just one agency. Always go to as many as possible. It is easy and it increases your chances a lot!

You could also try certified immigration firms but you will have to pay them to do your  paperwork. 

Lastly but no less once  you are in  Canada go to those career workshop places run by the government, which is FREE. These places some of them are specifically for new immigrants but I have someone who has been in Canada for 7 yrs and still joined. Those places teach you how to write resume, go to interview etc. after that they send you to companies where you volunteer for those companies for 3-4 months. So you actually have to be there for 40 hours per week. My old company is part of this program and after 3 months they actually do hire the employee.
