Study and Work in Canada

Study and Work in Canada  

You are considered to be an ‘international student’ if you come to Canada, on a temporary basis, for the purpose of pursuing an accredited course of study.  To study in Canada, international students require a study permit, and in some cases a temporary resident visa, issued by Canada immigration authorities outside of Canada.  

  For more information on what you need to secure permission to study in Canada, consult the website of Citizenship and Immigration Canada.  This same blog explains how study and work experience in Canada in some posts and what can make you eligible for permanent residence in Canada in the “Canadian Experience” category.      

Working while you are a student in Canada      

As an international student in Canada you can get a job which will allow you to earn money and valuable work experience too.   In fact the Government of Canada offers special kinds of work permits just for you. 

There are three ways to benefit from work opportunities:

   •If you are a full-time student you can work on  the university campus you are registered  for up to 20 hours per week as soon as your academic program begins.

•Once you have completed six months of full-time study, you can apply for an off-campus work permit.  Usually international centres at any given university conducts sessions about off-campus work permits twice a month.  Attendance is mandatory at one of these sessions if you are interested in applying for an off-campus work permit.

•As you approach graduation, you may consider working in Canada for up to three years through the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program.  This program has  no restrictions on the location or the type of employment, and no requirement that you have a job offer before applying.  

  

These government programs require particular documentation and application processes. Our legal partners will help you to understand and navigate the system offering  Immigration Help Sessions year round.  

Canada- The Rise of Contract Work

As the economy worsens, contract jobs are becoming more and more numerous. Offering contract jobs saves larger companies the time of looking for and hiring new employees as well as the money that a regular employee would receive in benefits. Also, a contract job may be seen as a sort of trial by fire, after which a contract employee may be offered a more permanent position.

Due to  months of searching, your first concrete job offer has come in. It’s a contract job that you wouldn’t have considered a year ago, but you’ve decided to accept. Six months with a reputable firm seems like a safe haven in turbulent times. Besides, it’s a foot in the door and could lead to more.

Not all contract positions have long-term potential, but some do.  Employers offer contract work to be upfront and honest.

“They’re letting people know that they have some work now and could down the road, but they’re not sure.

“Generally speaking, they’d rather hire people as full-time employees.  “It’s a bit cheaper than paying contractors and it promotes a better foundation for a company. That being said, you have to be a bit lean and mean these days for locals and internationals.

Accepting a contract position puts you in the ranks of the self-employed, for the duration of the agreement at least.
The major difference between a contract job and regular employment is the duration of the job, which is only until the project is complete. Below distincts type of contract jobs.

Nature of Contract Jobs
Contract jobs are not permanent positions, but that doesn’t mean that the job won’t take weeks, months or sometimes years to complete. A contract job could be something as simple as organizing an office, which could take days, or as complicated as building a skyscraper, a project that will take years. The longer the contract, often the more money involved to pay the workers and to cover other expenses.

Temps
The most common sort of contract employee are temps, or temporary employees. An organization that needs to fill temporary openings will often use a staffing agency, which is a company that keeps lists of employees who work in a certain type of field. Substitute teachers, secretaries, office workers and others can all be temps. If an opening needs to be filled, a temp agency will call up any of those people who are on the list and ask them if they’d like to take the temporary position that’s currently available. The staffing agency simply goes down the list until finding someone willing to take the job for its client.

Freelancers
Freelance workers, like those the name is taken from, are mercenaries. These are often small agencies, or independent workers who will do work on an assignment by assignment basis for a company. Writers, private security and advertising executives may be freelance workers. Freelancers are those who usually have some skill that is desired for a specific project, which is what makes them different from temps, who usually do unskilled labor or office work. 

In the shifting sands of Canada’s labour market, a clear trend is emerging: the rise of contract work.

Contract jobs have surged since 1997 and increased between 2005 and 2009 despite the downturn, a Statistics Canada paper released Friday shows. Last year, nearly 1 million Canadian workers held this type of job.

While it’s a lifestyle that offers a lot of advantages, the most obvious drawback is the lack of a steady paycheque and benefits. You also have to remember that although you make your own schedule, you always have to be aware of new opportunities to sell yourself.

Speaking of Clergy Jobs

Clergy jobs offers one of the widest varieties of occupational choices due to the fact that so many organizations and religious/spiritual groups employ members of the clergy in addition to numerous denominations that incorporate the clergy.
Members of the clergy are expected to uphold the beliefs and tenants of the religion they have chose and are additionally expected to live a moral and blameless life. This in and of itself can be very stressful.

The working hours for members of the clergy are seldom regular and many times include late night and weekend work as well as holidays. Most full time clergy find that they often work in excess of 60 hours per week preparing sermons and talking with members of their congregation.

The job duties of the clergy may also include:

•Family counseling
•Marital counseling
•Visiting the sick & elderly

It is important to recognize that some faiths have very strict restrictions regarding who may become a member of the clergy. Despite our modern age, many faiths still do not allow women to enter the clergy.

 
Employment Prospects for Clergy Jobs
There are numerous employment opportunities for members of the clergy; although some will face more competition than others. At the current time, the trend is toward large urban spiritual centers and it is anticipated that this will be the site for the most growth as well as the most competition. Besides various spiritual and worship centers, churches and temples individuals may find employment as members of the clergy with branches of the armed services serving as chaplains.
Seminaries and universities also employ members of the clergy to serve in both administrative and instructional capacities.  Each of the major and minor religions provide opportunity to enter the clergy; however some groups have significantly more opportunity than others. The Christian religion only has more than 70 different denominations! but there plenty of opportunities in  the Jewish, Buddhist and Muslim religions too .

Job Search for Clergy Jobs
Opportunities in the clergy field can be located in a number of different ways.

In some cases, a congregation or a committee representing the congregation will issue an open call for a pastor or clergy member. If an individual is attending seminary or some other university devoted to training for the clergy then they may check with senior professors to learn about opportunities.

Each religion, and denomination within that religion, generally has very specific entrance requirements for entering the field. The best advice for a person considering this as a clergy vocation  is to chat with a member of their own clergy regarding requirements.

Canadian Seasonal Job Market (I)

If you’re looking for short-term work, you might want to explore the many seasonal jobs available to people in Canada. Though most may think of the seasonal job as a retail position during the winter holidays, there are actually many types of work that occur in different seasons and require a higher number of employees than usual. In canada most of  the seasonal job is tourism or agricultural based.

For instance, it’s pretty easy to find summer jobs at places like theme parks, on resorts,  hotels and restaurants with heavy summer tourist traffic in Vancouver or Montreal. Employing a higher number of people year round wouldn’t make sense, but having extra employees during peak season can help with the extra work required.

Canada offers visas to prospective citizens as well as temporary workers. Depending on your current status, Canada has a visa that applies to you. Skilled workers, temporary employees, live in caregivers, agricultural laborers and college graduates each have to apply for distinct visas. However, the application process is simplified by the Canadian government in an attempt to attract foreign workers. Processing visas is often completed within three days and ranges from $75 to $150 for the individual.  Other opportunities that do not require visas can be arranged through work exchange program, but still involve authorization through Canadian agencies. These reciprocal programs help place foreign exchange students and teachers as well as workers filling co-op positions.

The Canadian government makes a point to advertise work opportunities to prospective foreign employees. This makes job hunting easier for you!

There are a number of employers that position seasonal employees in jobs that match their interests and skills. On top of this, Canadian embassies, individual resorts and national parks all have listings on their respective websites. It’s time for you to visit Canada, find an exciting job and explore the natural beauty.

Labour Market Information-Canada Employment Connections (I)

Labor Market Information (LMI) can help you get details on Canadian companies, develop job descriptions, obtain affirmative action data, learn about wages in your the area of interest and make sound economic decisions.

 Finding the job you want has to be a planned, systematic effort. The job search will test your self-knowledge, research skills, organization, persistence, and persuasion. You’ll find that that research skills will not only help you in searching for a new job in Canada , but will come in handy in many other situations in the future.

Knowledge is power.  Canadian employers value job-seekers who know key information about the company because that knowledge demonstrates your interest and enthusiasm for the company and for the job. These steps will take you on a short journey through the basic steps in conducting company research.

Step 1: Where to Do Research

If you really have no idea of what companies might be best for you, there are some good places to start. A number of media (pubications &  websites) have already done the research for you — and have produced various “best” directories, lists, guide, newsletter, databases… best employee-owned companies, best companies for minorities, best  diversity companies, best multicultural companies , etc.

Step 2. How to gather the very basics for  job search research:

1.Starting your job-search and looking to identify key companies in your profession or industry, or even in a specific geographic location.

2. When you are apply to an employer; it’s always best to relate yourself to the company and tailor your cover letter and resume to each employer.

3. When you have been invited to a job interview; you’ll want to showcase your knowledge of the company knowing the most you can about it.
 

Step 3: Determine What Information You Want
You are usually seeking two sets of information.

The first set of information deals with general company information. The types of information you might gather here include: products and services, history and corporate culture, organizational mission and goals, key financial statistics, organizational structure (divisions, subsidiaries, etc.), and locations (main and branches).

The second set of information deals with employment issues, do they hire foreign trained professionals? what about  their plans for  career paths and advancement opportunities, benefits, diversity initiatives, and other human resources functions?.

 

Step 4: Direct Approach

Probably the single best resource of company information is the company’s Website.
The next easiest thing to do is go to your favorite search engine, such as Google.com, and type the company’s name in the search box. Then simply follow the link to the company’s Website.

Among the two best sources for gathering information on certain public Canadian companies is Scott’s Online.

Finding information about private companies — and the vast majority of all companies in Canada are private — is a bit trickier. Two basic sources are Globe and Mail Largest Private Companies list  and  Profit Magazine list of Canada’s fastest growing privately-held companies.

If you are interested in working for a non-profit organization or association, the best research tools to use include the resources HM provide in our Provincial Non-Profit & Charity List.

Another great source of company information comes from the Yellowpages published in all Canadian provinces. There are also specialized industry-specific publications. Another great source that covers  Canada industry is strategies Canada.  lastly but not least we’ve developed a tool  at  HM  which is the Canadian database  for Int’l  Professional or Hineni CED. You’ll find several hundred companies, organized alphabetically or provincially.

Find more resources in our Guide to Researching Companies, Industries, and Provinces.

Trabajo para extranjeros en Canada

No es fácil encontrar un trabajo ‘normal’ como extranjero en  Canada, pero hay algunos trabajos que te permiten financiar tu estadía en Canada.

Au pairing
Un ‘au pair’ es contratado para cuidar niños. El trato que ofrecen es alojamiento gratis, comida y una pequeña ayuda económica por ayudar con los niños y en ocasiones otras labores del hogar. La ventaja de este empleo es que practicas mucho el idioma, ya que estas en contacto diario con este.

Normalmente, no es requerido ningún tipo de aptitud especial y por lo mismo un au pair no debe ser estar al cuidado de niños menores a dos años. Las familias que aceptan un chico son raras, las experiencias con niños son sujetas a emisión de visa, ciudadanos de la UE y USA regularmente tienen ventaja. El servicio dura un mínimo de 2 meses y máximo de 3 años.

Requisitos y responsabilidades típicos

•conocimiento básico del idioma para comunicación con los niños desde el principio
•levantar y llevar a los niños para la escuela
•jugar con los niños
•preparar y darles sus alimentos
•limpiar sus cuartos y áreas de juego
•cuidado de ellos en las noches cuando salen los padres
Responsabilidades comunes de las familias

•dar un máximo de 25 – 35 horas de trabajo por semana
•dos días libres por semana
•no tratar al au pair como un sirviente doméstico no pagado
•dar su propia habitación
•pagar semalmente (unos CDN90)
•registrar al au pair con el doctor de la familia
•registrar al au pair en seguro de la casa
Las siguientes organizaciones relacionan au pairs con familias – estas suelen cobrar una cuota de registro a la familia y/o al au pair:

•IAPA (Asociación Internacional de Au Pair): www.iapa.org 
•IAPO (Organización Internacional de Au Pair):
www.au-pair.org 
•Au Pair info in Canada: Au Pair Canada

 Enseñanza de idioma extranjero
La enseñanza de tu idioma como idioma extranjero es un área donde puedes tener una ventaja en mercado laboral.  Frances , Español y Chino son idiomas con demanda alta. Conseguir empleo en el sistema de educación pública en Canada sule ser muy difícil, ya que solitan algunos requisitos( licencia y acreditacion) y el proceso de selección es competido (generalmente le ofrecen las vacantes a los canadienses).

Sin embargo, existen algunas escuelas de idiomas y agencias de prácticas que dan empleo a extranjeros. Algunos ni siquiera piden requisitos (como el TOEFL para el Inglés o Frances), pero depende de la institución. La poseer un certificado o título te da una ventaja. No hay requisitos para clases privadas.

La enseñanza de idiomas no es la mejor pagada con salarios muy variables. Clases privadas por sesión pagan unos $15-20/por hora, pero tienes que contemplar administración de estudiantes, agenda y viajes. Chequea en las escuelas de idiomas y universidades las oportunidades para dar clases o echa un vistazo en workopolis.com.

Trabajos temporales en la agricultura
Se estima que más de 35,000 extranjeros vienen a Canada cada año para ayudar en la temporada de trabajo intensivo como es la cosecha. La temporada de la frutas (manzanas, fresas, etc)  es de 4 a 5 semanas en Sepiembre/Octubre (dependiendo en tiempo y región), otras temparadas de frutas son de Abril hasta principios de Noviembre. Okanagan Valley  es muy famoso.

Es relativamente fácil obtener un permiso para realizar estos trabajos legalmente. El trabajo es duro y la paga es poca. Mucha gente regresa año tras año a los mismos lugares, así que puede difícil obtener un trabajo.

Industria turística
Hay muchas oportunidades en el sector turístico durante verano. Encontrar trabajo en Agosto, epecialmente en Vancouver, Montreal  y otros sitios llenos de turistas,suele ser fácil, ya también los Canadienses se van vacaciones. Los servicios más comunes para empleo son hoteles, restaurantes y otros sitios de comidas.

Dependiendo de la experiencia y aptitudes, los trabajos son: limpieza, mesero, cocinero, cajero y recepcionista. Los fáciles para encontrar empleo son las cadenas de comida rápida como McDonald’s, Subway, etc, ya que suelen estar siempre contratando personal. Las habilidades con el idioma te pueden ayudar en este país, dandote una ventaja competitiva sobre los Canadienses. En invierno, las oportunidades de trabajo se concentran en los centros de ski en Whistler y Vancouver Island and Victoria.

Prácticas estudiantiles
Las prácticas estudiantiles (Essays) o prácticas asignadas no son consideradas legalmente como trabajos, así que un permiso de trabajo (WTP) no es requerido. Mantienes tu estado de estudiante durante las prácticas profesionales. Un acuerdo de prácticas (internship) entre tu institución académica, la compañía y tu debe ser completada. En este se definen lo que estarás haciendo, horas de trabajo, condiciones así como cualquier remuneración.

Recession Proof Jobs and Careers in Canada

Hundreds of jobs are disappearing daily in many countries. In some industries people manage to keep their jobs during recessions and financial crises. What are the recession-proof jobs in Canada?

To keep a job during an economic recession, it helps to have a recession-proof career. Are there any industries, where jobs will be stable throughout the current global financial crisis?  Here I post a basic  list of  best recession proof  jobs, careerss and industries.

Recession Proof Jobs

Sales & Marketing representatives top the list–and, unlike other professions, not because there’s a shortage. Rather, in tough economic times, a good sales force is a critical way to pull a company out of a downturn.

Network administrators: they are responsible for the design and management of the physical and technical structure of company’s communication tools–such as shared files, e-mail, teleconferencing and company Web sites. Demand is particularly high in emerging markets like India, China and the Middle East, which are these creating networks for the first time.

IT and computer Jobs.  Jobs in this field would continue to be in demand even during financial crisis. The IT services still need to function efficiently with or without a recession.

Food related-jobs. People regardless of their status in life need to eat. Cheaper restaurants and take out counters obviously would need to staff up more employees to meet the demand.

Healthcare/ Medical-Related Jobs. During recession, the need for skilled nurses, doctors, caregivers, medical assistants, doctors, psychologists, psychoanalysts, home health aides, dentists, health service administrators/managers, would most likely be more in demand.
Recession Proof Careers

Medical-Related Careers.   Medical professionals are always in demand. For example, nurses, physical therapists, dentists, physicians, health services administrators/managers and other medical professionals such as pharmacists are always needed because there are always individuals who become ill and need medical care. Medical professionals typically work in schools, medical offices, community healthcare centers, rehabilitation centers, nursing homes, and hospitals.

Education Careers

Education is another stable career area due to the fact that there will always be children, adolescents, and adults who need to attend school. On the college level and graduate school level, there is a need for professors and administrators because there are always students attending college in order to get a college education.In addition, there is a need for individuals such as Private Tutors and Enrichment Program Instructors or Facilitators for specialized areas including languages.

Computer Careers
Computer science can be a good career area to pursue. Whether the career interest is in being a computer systems analyst, network systems and data communication analyst, software design, web master, web developer, Web Programmer, Information architecture or a network and computer systems administrator, if one is flexible geographically, that helps because businesses always have a need for competent computeror system analyst workers

Accounting Careers and Finantial Careers

Bookkeepig and Accounting can be a stable profession in times of recession due to the fact that even if the economic conditions worsen, people still have to pay taxes. As part of the process of paying taxes, people often need tax advice and tax preparation help. Accountants specialize in giving tax advice and tax preparation help. Thus, accountants work no matter what the economic circumstances are for individuals, corporate, for profit and for the non profit sector.
Recession Proof Industries
Security – No matter how bad the financial crisis gets, the need for security shall not decrease. Jobs like firemen, police, law enforcement officers, customs and security services, forensics, and shop security personnel may even need more skilled personnel during the recession.

Healthcare – As mention above the need for skilled nurses, doctors, psychologists and psychotherapists, analysts, caregivers, medical assistants, physical therapists, home health aides, medical records staff and health information technicians will hardly decrease and may even grow during the recession.

Education – The need for trained teachers and some other skilled people instructors or facilitators is the core processes of the education industry. In highly populated growth areas remain this constant during recessions and will probably remain so now.

Personal Care – Barbers, hairdressers, beauticians and cosmetologists also could keep their jobs. Businesses in the upmarket range might lose customers but those who cater to downmarket needs will probably survive.

Legal Professions – Skilled professionals in the claims and compensation sectors, or those dealing with bankruptcies, and contractual disputes usually see more work during recessions.

Food Industry – People can’t give up eating even during a recession. Cheaper take-aways and eateries would need more staff ready to work at lower pay to function than luxury restaurants, which may not have enough customers.

House and Car Repairs – Skilled house repair servicemen like plumbers or electricians in densely populated areas didn’t lose their jobs during previous recessions. Though not many new houses are being built, emergency repairs are vital. We might drive older cars, but they need to be serviced and repaired. Cleaners will still be needed so executive or average housekeepers will much needed.

Environmental Sector – The demand for skilled professionals in environmental health and protection has been constant and is not likely to diminish during the recession.
