Work Permit

It is possible to work in Canada while you are there as a student without HRSDC certification, and there are opportunities for jobs on and off campus. Please see the following website for more information: Studying in Canada: Work permits for students.

Working holiday visa

Visa requirements are crucial to your trip planning.
This section is intended for reference only. We strongly recommend that you contact the embassy directly for the most up to date info..

The Working Holiday Scheme is an ideal way to explore and experience life in Canada while engaging in temporary employment (maximum of one year). Jobs can be found in all sectors, including industry, commerce, science and technology, tourism, agriculture and horticulture. A work permit is not necessary, once you have obtained the visa for this program.

Working Holiday visas in Canada are only available for citizens of Netherlands, Australia and New Zealand. The intention behind the scheme is to allow young (age 18-30) Australians, netherlanders and New Zealanders to visit Canada  for up to 12 months and to permit them to supplement their income by working during their holiday.

To ensure that the holidaymakers do not become destitute and a burden to Canadian government, would-be working holidaymakers need to show that they have at least CAD $2,000 to bring with them to support themselves, if they already have a return air ticket or they should provide evidence of funds exceeding CAD$5,000 if they only have a one-way air ticket. Furthermore, WHV candidates are expected to have a compete medical insurance coverage during their working holiday.

Canadian working holiday visa applications are generally straightforward and can be downloaded from the websites of the Royal Embassies in Neatherland, New Zealand and Australia. Applications should be a made a few months before departure and are accepted throughout the year.

How to go around the “No Canadian experience and without a work permit” I

As the post title, my intention will be to provide you information related to  how to go around the ‘no Canadian experience and without a work permit” Part I,  in your search of “How to Live and work in Canada. I’ve been living here since 2001 and a lot of things have changed. However, I think that I can help you go through your dream of living in Canada and working as an immigrant.

My dream started back in 2000 when I finished my undergraduate degree and when I was looking for universities to a Master’s degree abroad. That’s how everything starts.

If you have the same dream, or if you’re also want to live and work in Canada here read on.

In order for Foreign Trained Professionals to get jobs in Canada, the first step is that they need to have qualifications and licenciature  aproved or  their Foreign Qualifications   Evaluated and Recognized in Canada  by one of the 34 Canadian regulatory professional career  bodies.

Second step is  to register in their field association. Third step is  to register in  Co-op universities programs,  where a Foreign National, worker or professional  is able to  upgrade  language or  career skills.

As Foreign National, worker or professional take advantage of work-study field  or  internships placements, because they will give  you the so called  “Canadian experience”  and through it you could get a legal Canadian  work permit.  Hineni Media  listings shows all the employers that participate in Co-Op work-study programs. Hineni Media  listing provides all the essential information such as application deadlines, compensation, perks, selectivity and more.. 

A Canadian work permit is a temporary resident visa issued by Citizenship and Immigration Canada to grant permission to foreign workers seeking to engage in employment in Canada. It most commonly has maximum validity of up to one year, although work permits can be issued for up to three years in some cases. We’ll talk about that in  the  part II of “‘No Canadian experience and without a work permit “.

FINDING JOBS & EMPLOYERS: Canada

With unemployment at its highest point since the Great Depression, the need for career and job placement information within the community has vastly increased.  With this, comes a need for more resources; such as  Hineni Media Online Career Library.  I will try to offer you advice on other certain types of jobs or industries you can look into, and I’ll also try to answer any general questions you have on work-at-home offers you come across

Hineni Media Database  includes essential Canadian  industry information synthesized with specific, insider company reports which are of particular interest to students and professionals, normally available only by individual subscription. Hineni  empowers users with fresh, relevant knowledge about Canadian companies, careers and schools and provides the coherent context needed to identify valuable job and educational opportunities.

How  in Canada  can you  find job opportunities?

Networking:  Not for the shy or undermotivated. You need good interpersonal skills. It’s the number one method by which many graduates,undergraduate and university wide job seekers,  had found a job.

Advertised jobs

On-Campus Interviewing Programs,Online and print listings,  Career-field-focused job listing web sites, Career fairs / job fairs:
Lets employers find you. You apply for jobs that interest you but not every industry or type of job represented, on certain listings You need patience to navigate and read listings. As for the career fairs you need to make a good impression in person and look prepared. Do research as who will be in the fair in advance as you won’t be necessarily learning about every opportunity in each organization — you will be learning where the major hiring needs are.
Unadvertised jobs

Online databases, listings, career libraries:
Research sources that help you find potential employers. Very helpful if you are focusing on a particular industry. If you have no clue what type of industries you could work in, you’ll need to research and think about this. Because you’ll need to know the type of organizations with whom you could, or want to, work.
They can be helpful to find contacts for a geographically targeted job search. Specialty sites fill that niche.

A critical mistake many job-seekers make is not bothering to research potential employers, which is bad for several reasons. First, you should always research companies to help you decide if you even want to work at any of them; fit is such an important aspect of job enjoyment. Second, having information about the company can help you better prepare for the interview; the more you know about a company, the better you’ll understand all aspects of its operations. Third, you need to conduct some research on each company because you should expect the inevitable question from the interviewer: “What do you know about our company?” Sometimes it might be phrased as: “Why do you want to work for us?”

All job-seekers need to conduct research and develop critical information about each company — its products and services; key executives; new products, plants, or divisions; company culture; organizational structure; diversity and values; benefits; career paths; etc.

What’s the best source of company information? The company’s Website, of course! It’s absolutely amazing what you can find published on company Websites.

 Work-at-home jobs:
“Are there any legitimate work-at-home jobs for your field? if you are a registered nurse. Please investigated several advertisements. Some sites want money up front just to tell you where to look for a job. I would be very interested in any information or links that would assist me.  If you  have a background in management, med surgery, hospice and acute care. At this time, you coud  drive 40 km round-trip.”

OK, I can’t say this enough: Do not pay money up front to get a job. This is not how it works in the real world of employment. Requests for any money or personal information in e-mails or over the phone are scams, 99.9 percent of the time.
With a health care background, he says, she could get work answering medical questions from home via health help lines. Some insurance companies and nonprofits have these types of call centers, he says, including  Eli Lilly Canada Inc, Novopharm Limited, Bayer Inc’s Informed Health Line, the March of Dimes and the Arthritis Foundation.
In addition, a registered nurse could also look into coordinating home health care services, managing recruitment of nurses for medical facilities, writing training materials and protocols or developing safety compliance protocols.
The key is paring your expertise and skills with jobs that can be done from a home base, and then actively going out and finding companies that could be a fit. Please don’t wait for offers to show up in your e-mail box.

With the Hineni Database  members will possess all the tools necessary to prepare them for career success in Canada.  Additionally, the library will be provided with a one-stop shop for your career content.  Check out the demo link!

Cómo calificar para la práctica profesional en Ontario

Es la pregunta mas comun! Por lo general es la pregunta que se hacen muchos de los que ya están pensando seriamente en embarcarse en el proceso y una de las que envian aca

Desde mi optica, lo primero que me preguntaria es si puedo trabajar en mi profesion una vez en Canada como
immmigrante.

Tenga en cuenta que la certificacion en las distintas carreras profesionales o su version acreditada canadiense no son nada facil ademas de que cada provincia cada provincia tiene instituticiones* que regulan y determinan quienes pueden ejercer o no.

Asi es el caso de las enfermeras, medicos, ingenieros, abogados, arquitectos, odontólogos, etc. Muchos deben pasar por exámenes y a veces hasta llegan a estudiar toda su carrera de nuevo.

Imaginense llegar aca con un una profesión que no es regulada. Por ejemplo trades( carpintero, albañil, maestro , mesero, pizzero). Puede aplicar directamente por empleos o anotarse en una pasantia con pago ( internship)

Pero como saber si hay demanda  esa area? ya hemos dicho que lea sobre perspectivas o estadisticas profesionales que publica el gobierno Federal y provincial en “Labor Market”. y lo que van para Montreal el site de Emploi Quebec cuenta con su sección “Info marché du travail”.

los mejores metodos de encontrar trabajo no son los que salen publicados en workopolis, monster y jobboom sino lo que no son directamente promocionados y que solo puede conseguir atraves de network of contacts asi como contactar los empleadores directamente.

No se olvide de crear una JIST card como herramienta de busqueda, ya que esta le puede servir de mensaje efectivo
para usar en las llamadas  telefonicas.

How to search for jobs in Canada

The best sites to find job listings including job banks, job search engine sites, niche job sites, are jobs and positions listed by type (field) of job seeker and location.

As a local or international job seeker you need to know which Canadian companies are hiring. Many companies don’t pay a hefty fee for a single job posting on a bulletin board. They don’t advertise single positions or their contracts. They get their work through the business open bid process and network. So when the job market is tough, it’s really important to effectively manage your job search – and your career. It’s not just a question of creating your resume, writing a quick cover letter, and applying for jobs. You may approach the companies in your own way. We recommend you identify 10-12 prospect companies from your list, noting what they do best and what you do best, and contact them to make the right fit. No matter how you deliver your resume, you still need to make personal contact and talk to a person to get hired.

You need to know what resumes work in Canada . Below we list some Job Search Management Tools to help manage and organize your job search once your are subscribe or your start your own search.

JibberJobber provides an easy way to keep track of all of the information that you collect during a job search. You can track where you have sent your resumes, the jobs you apply for, and log the status of each job as you proceed through the hiring process. In addition, you can track your personal networking contacts and keep a log of how they have helped you, as well as connect with them on LinkedIn.

Becomed.com is a free job search management tool. You can record your applications, resumes and cover letter templates, and track the job applications you have sent, how far have they have advanced in the hiring process, and what the next steps in your job search will be.

 Google Tools Google is built on the idea that email can be more intuitive, efficient, and useful. And maybe even fun. You can upload documents directly from your computer (browse to select the file, then click to upload) or create a new document right on the web site. You can edit your documents (which is perfect for cover letter writing) and export them as Word, OpenOffice, PDF, RTF, or HTML files.
