How to find a Job in Canada: What You Need to Know

More than ever, Canada is in need of qualified workers in a range of professions. From nurses to miners, food servers to IT professionals, employers in Canada are increasingly looking beyond their own borders to meet their employment needs.
When living abroad, finding a job in Canada can seem like a daunting task. Thankfully, a few tips can help demystify the process, and with a little luck you could be on your way to a new life and career in Canada!

Step 1: Know the Job Market
Before looking for jobs, you should take some time to learn about the labour environment for your specific occupation in Canada. It is important to ask yourself important questions about your job search goals, such as:
What is the average salary for my job in Canada? Does it vary by location?
You can use the  Monster’s  Canada Salary Calculator to find the answer to this question

Step 2: Search for a Job

There is no ‘right’ way to search for a job in Canada. A good place to start is to think of any connections you might have in the country. Look through your social networks to find out if you have friends or family (or friends-of-friends, etc) with ties to Canada or your profession. If you have no personal ties, you may want to consider contacting professionals working in your field in Canada and asking to speak with them informally in order to learn more about the job market.
Of course, you do not need a professional network in Canada in order to begin your job search. There are a number of Canadian job posting websites that you may use to start your search today. Our Job Search Tool, which accesses job postings from across the country, is a good place to start.

When applying for jobs, it is important to remember that Canadian employers may look for certain things that differ from employers in your home country. For instance, it is important to provide a resume that conforms to Canadian professional standards. You can use our resume services  to make sure yours is up to par. If you are applying for any job opening, it is beneficial to include a cover letter explaining your qualifications and interest in the job.

Step 3: Securing a Job Offer

If you make it to step 3, congratulations! You are closer than ever to arriving in Canada. A job offer from a Canadian employer may be issued on either a temporary or permanent basis. Both can help bring you to Canada, but there are different processes for each. Usually, a Canadian employer will formally hire you by issuing a job offer letter. For immigration purposes, it is helpful that the job offer letter includes the following information:

  • Salary and benefits
  • Working hours
  • Description of job duties
  • Printed on company letterhead
  • Signed by employer and employee

For semi-skilled occupations, the Federal government requires the use of a standardized employment contract, if you are being hired from abroad.

Important note: While rare, fraudulent job offers do occur. You should exercise good judgement when receiving a job offer from an employer abroad. Remember that a genuine offer of employment will not ask you to pay money or provide your credit card information.

Step 4: Learn what are my rights as a employee?
All Canadians are entitled to a minimum wage and vacation benefits. Social benefits such as healthcare may vary from province to province.

  • Do I need Federal/Provincial certification to practice in Canada?
  • Are my skills in high demand in a certain part of Canada?
  • Find out by browsing for your occupation in different provinces and cities.
  • Is my job considered ‘high’ or ‘low’ skilled in Canada?

 

Step 5: Come to Canada
An offer of temporary employment can be issued for varying lengths of time, from a few days to a few years. If successful, you will receive a Temporary Work Permit to work in this position. You will come to Canada for a specified period of time as a temporary foreign worker, and you will be restricted to working only for the job written on your permit. If you do wish to change employers once in Canada, you would need to apply for and receive a new work permit. This can be done from inside Canada.
If your offer of employment is permanent in nature, you can use it as support for a permanent residency application. Many popular immigration programs, such as the Federal Skilled Worker Program, have streams dedicated to processing applications that include a full-time Canadian job offer. While the Federal Skilled Worker Program had placed a strict cap on application intake, individuals with arranged employment in Canada are not subject to these caps.

Whether temporary or permanent, a job in Canada will give you invaluable experience, and may be a stepping stone for a future life in the country. For some, a job will fall into place quickly, while for others the search may last longer. No matter what, it is important to keep your focus on your ultimate personal and professional goals. With persistence, you can make them a reality.

Arranged Employment (II)

Arranged Employment in Canada is one way to fast-track your way into Canada as an immigrant. Under the Skilled Worker category, a person with Arranged Employment is given priority and can obtain up to 10 extra points.

You will need a genuine offer of permanent employment from a Canadian employer that is approved by Service Canada (SC). In this case the employer is making an offer to hire you on an indeterminate basis once the Canada Immigration visa is issued to you. You cannot come to live and work in Canada until then.

The procedure to get Arranged Employment is done by your employer who must submit the Arranged Employment request to SC. If approved, SC will forward the Arranged Employment Opinion (AEO) directly to the Visa Office processing your application. Policy requires the Visa Office to fast-track AEO applications and now under the new Federal Skilled Worker guidelines is one of the few options left that does not require you to have an occupation listed on the new occupation list. Note you must still have at least one year of work experience within the last ten years in occupations listed under Skill Type O, A or B.

Also the Arranged Employment option applies if you are already in Canada on a temporary work permit (depending on the type), and your current employer has made an offer to give you a permanent job if you are accepted as a Federal Skilled Worker then this will also give you priority processing as long as your temporary work permit is valid both when you apply for permanent residence and when the permanent resident visa is issued. Again, your occupation does not need to be one of those listed on the new occupation list but must still be a skilled job listed under Skill Type 0, A or B.

The advantages of a Arranged Employment Opinion or AEO are faster processing under the Federal Skilled Worker Class and the employer does not have to demonstrate that there are any Canadian citizens or permanent residents available to fill the position.

What is the best way to find arranged employment in Canada as a foreigner trying to inmigrate?

1. There is an expedited work visa for people already employed by companies with offices in Canada, should they wish to transfer within the company, to Canada.

2. Arranged Employment for Independent Skilled Workers or working without offices in Canada

Under this category , there are two general ways to obtain arranged employment points: working in Canada and securing an “indeterminate job offer.” Hineni Media Information services publish resources that can help you prepare your case under either option.

A) Indeterminate Job Offer

An “indeterminate job offer” is an offer from a Canadian firm which has been in existence for at least one year. This job offer must meet several requirements:

•It must be genuine, and not for the purpose of facilitating immigration.
•It must pay the market wages for the position.
•The job must be a skilled one, classified as either a “management” position or under skill level “A” or “B” under the National Occupational Classification code.
•The job is not part time or seasonal.
By subscribing to Hineni Online databases,  you can be of tremendous help to international workers and international students by letting them know which companies they ought to  contact.

B) Working in Canada

If you are already working in Canada, with a qualifying work permit, you may be credited points for arranged employment. For example, you may have obtained a work permit under NAFTA or your spouse’s study permit.

There are several consulting and placement agencies in  Canada as well as outside, which may assist you in finding a job in Canada.   Most of the agencies outside Canada and some in the U.S. charge a fee for their services.  Their fee is several times higher than the subscription fee that you pay to Hineni Information Services (hinenimedia.memberlodge.org).  As a matter of fact, several of these agencies subscribe to Hineni Online Database of Canadian Employers for International Professionals, to help themselves and help their clients like yourself. 

Watch out for illegal operations which are under investigation for fraud and illegal representations.  Do some research on the internet and check their background before advancing any money. 

In our opinion, you can quickly find a job in  Canada on your own with the help Hineni Online Database of Canadian Employers for International Professionals.

Canada: Immigration Through Employment

Permanent Residence through Employment
(Permanent Residence in Canada)

The CiC (Citizenship and Immigration Canada ) has developed a points system that determines the quota or number of visas that are allocated to a particular preference category. This points system was developed to give an order to the way CIC approves applications each year and creates a difference in the application process by category.  This category includes:

* Foreign national Professionals with a bachelor degree who do not qualify for a higher preference category.
* Foreign national Skilled Workers with a minimum of two years training and experience.
* Other Workers and Unskilled workers requiring less than two years of higher education (including Live-in Domestic Workers). Tons of ladies enter and reside in Canada through this scheme.

Who Can Apply?

Professionals without an Advanced Degree*

*It means an university degree, such as a master’s or doctorate, that is higher than a bachelor’s.

* You must hold a Foreign Equivalent to a Canadian Bachelor Degree. No advance degree is necessary and the Bachelor’s degree must not necessarily be in the field of the offered employment.
* (OR) You must hold a Degree that is normally required for this profession so it could be acredited.
* If so, you must be in the position to prove that you are recognized as a professional of that profession.
* You must be offered a full-time, permanent position in Canada.
* Your potential employer must apply for and receive approved by HRDC that proves that no other qualified Canadian workers are available for that employment position and the wages and working conditions offered will not adversely affect those of similarly employed Canadian workers.

Skilled Workers
* Skilled workers are those working in a specific field that requires certain skills and who have had at least two years of training or experience. This classification does not include temporary or seasonal employment.
* You must have evidence of two years of training or experience. This may be met through relevant post-secondary education.
* You must be offered a full-time, permanent position in Canada.
* You must be filling a position that requires 2 years of training or experience.
* Your potential employer must apply for and receive approved by HRDC ( Human Resources Development Canada )currently known as AEO approval from Service Canada).
* Academic Credential Evaluations may be required in certain cases.

Unskilled Workers

Live-In Domestic Workers
* You must have at least one year of experience as a household domestic worker.
* You must be offered a full-time, permanent position in Canada.
* Your potential employer must apply for and receive approved HRDC.
* Your employer must prove that your employment as a live in household worker is a “business necessity”.

Other Workers
* You may have less than two years of training or experience.
* Your job does not require two years of training or experience.
* You must have completed your training for the job prior to starting the permanent Residence application process.
* You must be offered a full-time, permanent position in Canada.
* You must be ready to wait a longer time for your visa due to the long back-log of applications already filed under this category.
* Your potential employer must apply for and receive approved HRDC. However HRDC aproval is generally not made available for the list of jobs listed below called certain occupations in the ocupational national job list.
* Complete list of  Natianal Occupations

How do I Apply?

There are 3 general steps in the application process for lawful permanent residence for skilled workers. The first two steps must be initiated by your potential employer, and the last step by you and your accompanying relatives. The application procedures may be carried out either within Canada at a CIC office, or abroad at the Canadian offices or consulate of your country of residence.

* The first step involves your employer who files for a HRDC job offer approval on your behalf. The reason that you are required to do this is so that the  Canadian Government can confirm that there are no qualified Canadian citizens available and willing to take the specific job that has been offered and that the working conditions and wages offered for the position will not have an adverse effect on Canadian job labor market. Therefore, you will be working with both CIC and Human Resources Development Canada.
* If the HRDC job offer approval is approved, you will then have to prove that you are qualified for this particular visa. Your employer will then file an Skilled Immigrant Petition for  Foreign Worker.
* If the Petition is approved, you will then file a formal request for lawful temporary or permanent working visa or permanent residency application. This process can take place from the Country of Residence at the Canadian consulate or from within Canada.

There are several factors that could impact the time it takes for the application to be approved. These factors may include, but may not be limited to: (a)Using the correct procedures when filing each type of application; and (b) quota availability. For example quotas are set by both visa type and by country, so, the country you were born in can also impact your timing.
