Working in Canada – Advice & Tips

General Advice Sample CV 

Cross cultural specialist Mari tells you below what it takes to get a job in the country well-known for its ‘Multicultural flavor’. However, you need to truly love  Canadian and  Canada  to find a job as foreign job seeker, because jobs are not abundantly present and salaries are not too high in this economy.

Job hunting in Canada

One of the best ways of finding work  in Canada you’ll soon discover is through networking. For an outsider, developing such contacts may be difficult at first.  Try to volunteer. Volunteering can be the antidote to diminished self-esteem, and  it also gets you well connected. You develop a network with other volunteers and agencies so there are shared core values.

However, perseverance after that is often rewarded, as the initiative demonstrated is in itself a recommendation. Speculative applications are likewise often successful.  When you apply for a job make use of a very formal style for your letter and include impressive references with your speculative application. In particular, when accompanied by a good recommendation (“Mentor”) from someone familiar to the company, such as a comunity or social worker,  university professor, a friend, a member of the family, or a company executive, your speculative application stands a greater chance.  An introduction of a well-known person is extremely effective, know that because in Canada the emphasis is more on ‘who’ you know, than on ‘what’ you know (although as a foreign job seeker the right qualifications are essential, even if you have some distant Canadians relatives …).

Furthermore, be aware of the large economical differences between the West  and the East coast of  Canada.

The Cover Letter
In general a  cover letter  should create enough interest to make the potential employer want to look at your application in more detail and hopefully invite you for an interview. Your cover letter, however, should not provide too much information about experience and qualifications; this will be provided in your Resume.

The style of the covering letter must be  conventional and formal, almost with stately English or French language. Explain briefly what can you do for the company and why you are interested in the job and the company. But leave the full explanation about your  deep motivation until the interview when it can be given orally. In  Canada, the information will be better  presented in verbal form. It’s also a test of your language or  communications skills.  Likewise, copies of  certificates, diplomas and references should not be bring or sent together with your cover letter and  resume (CV), but should be brought to the first interview. Of course, if you have really impressive testimonials do send them with your letter.

The covering letter must be typed –  Never an employer  will requests a hand-written letter. The letter should be kept short (1/2 to maximum one page). Application forms are hardly used, except by some (foreign) multi-national firms.

The recruitment process tends to be tedious (long or boring), up to two months. You should check carefully what kind of time delay to expect for a response.

The Resume, Portafolio o Curriculum Vitae (CV)
There are no strict rules for resumes  in Canada. But a resume is best received when it is brief,  two pages long ¬ AND NOT MORE. although online portafolios of four or five pages are not uncommon either ¬ and in chronological order Do not include in your personal details such as your date and place of birth, your nationality,  or your civil status. Do make sure that  your telephone number (including international access code) are. Hobbies are mentioned in your resume  A photo is not requested.

The Application Procedure
The recruitment procedure usually consists of two to three interviews and some psychometric, skills tests. Be prepared for questions about your motivation. As far as qualities are concerned Canadiann employers look for enthusiasm, communication and relationship skills. A fairly informal atmosphere is general, with each recruiting officer following his/her own, usually intuitive style. Only if the personality of the candidate is deemed apt, the recruiter will continue to look at his/her professional experience. Hence the importance to establish good personal rapport during the interview for the interviewee.

Pay a lot of attention to your appearance for the interviews; image says a lot . The way you are dressed is of significant importance for a Canadian employer, it shows your true interest for the job! Salaries are rarely discussed at the first interview, and please do not ask for this!

On-line applications are very  common. In fact, a lot of job agencies, but also employers who publish their vacancies on-line provide the opportunity to complete the job application form on-line.

If we got you started on Canada – think about ordering the guide ”Looking for work in Canada”.

Canada’s business skills immigration Program

Canada’s business skills immigration program encourages successful business people (business owners, investors and senior executives) to settle permanently in Canada   and develop new or existing businesses in Canada.

There are several options designed to enable business migration to Canada. Exactly which type of immigration is relevant relies upon your exact requirements, relevant business experience and available investment capital.

Canada has three classes of business immigrants:

Investors
Entrepreneurs
Self-employed persons

Immigration through this category is a suitable option for businesspeople and entrepreneurs.
However, it requires extensive and systematic documentation of assets and financial statements.  if you are already in Canada to have  extensive business experience will  help you with this process as well as tie-ups with leading financial institutions in Canada to facilitate your  process and ensure success.

•successful business immigrants are first granted a Business Skills (Provisional) visa up to three or four years, then
•after establishing the requisite level of business or maintaining their eligible investment, are eligible to make an application for a Business Skills (Residence) visa (permanent residence) – applied for in Canada
A direct permanent residence category will still be available for certain business immigrants sponsored by Provincial/Territory governments. This is known as the Business  visa.

Who can apply for Business Immigration Program?

•business owner: for owners or part-owners of a business who are expected to make a C$400,000.
•senior executive: for senior executive employees of major businesses
•investment: for investors/business people willing to invest in Canada
•business talent: for high-calibre business people who have sponsorship from a Provincial/Territory government
Persons who are in Canada on temporary visas 

•established business in Canada: for people temporarily in Canada who are owners or part owners of a business
•regional established business in Canada:for people temporarily in Canada who are owners or part owners of a business in a designated area of Canada
The Business Immigration Visa Program  encourages successful business people (business owners, investors and senior executives) to settle permanently in Canada and develop new or existing businesses in Canada.

Remember to take advantage now, the three main Business Immigration Program categories for Canadian Immigration are:

Investors

Research Canadian Companies

Knowledge is power. Before going on an interview is the time to do  research. All the big companies know that and pour lots of money into research to gain the knowledge they need to be competitive.

When you begin to make initial contacts with potential employers, through resumes or any other method you use, it is a good idea to have some basic facts about the companies  you are interested in.

Knowing your potential employer will help you target your “presentation” to them.  By visiting the company’s Web site, you will collect important information about its products, recent changes, competitors and clients. Here are some guidelines on how to research a company online before your job interview.

Looking through their data can help you the following company information including:

Company name
Address and contact information
Its industry sector
A description of their products or services, main markets and customers
Innovations, technology used, special projects
Annual report
Financial statements
 

How does this help you?

 

You learn about companies in your profession, sector and city.
You find people to network with.
You decide which companies to approach for a job.
You learn about a company you are applying to.
You prepare for a job interview or information interview.

 

Summing up, the chances of accessing more of the Canadian  labor platform, takes time and it depend exclusively in the professional conditions that you have achieved until now. The best possible advice would be for you to gather up pertinent information regarding the job market of the Canadian city you wish to move to. 

My experience also as   Work & business Information Service Provider, I recommend job seekers identify companies of interest and proactively and creatively contact senior managers regarding their candidacy.

Consejo de Inmigración y Refugio de Canadá

Si usted es encontrado que es elegible para la petición de protección como refugiado, su solicitud sera enviada a la División de Protección de Refugiados de IRB. IRB es un cuerpo independiente que toma decisiones en asuntos de inmigración y refugiados en Canadá.

3- Como solicitar refugio

Hay dos maneras como solicitar protección de refugiado Canadá:

  • Usted puede hacer su reclamo cuando llega Canadá, en los puertos fronterizos. Esto puede ser en un aeropuerto, puerto de naves marítimas, o fronteras con los Estados Unidos de América.

Asegúrese que tiene todos los documentos de identidad, incluyendo su pasaporte, licencias de conducir, y cualquier otro documento que sea relacionado con su situación de refugio.

Los oficiales de CIC harán una evaluación preliminar de su situación. Si el oficial decide que su caso tiene meritos para una entrevista, su petición será transferida a la Junta de Inmigración y Refugiados para una decisión.

También le informara que usted debe dejar Canadá en los próximos 30 días, colocándole en una posición de expulsión del país. (Si la orden es Expulsión fue enviada por correo postal, se le permitirá 7 días más desde la fecha que la orden fue emitida)

  • Si usted no habla inglés o francés, un intérprete lo asistirá por teléfono o en persona.

  • Si el oficial determina que usted debería haber hecho el reclamo en los Estados Unidos, el oficial hará que la orden de extradición sea efectiva inmediatamente y usted le será requerido que vuelva a Estados Unidos inmediatamente.
  • Usted puede ser requerido respetar ciertas condiciones impuestas por el oficial si le es permitido entrar en Canadá. Por ejemplo, usted debe reportarse a las oficinas locales en cada ocasión que le sea requerido. También usted es requerido informar a la oficina más cercana de CIC cualquier cambio de dirección. Si su solicitud ha sido transferida a IRB, usted recibirá un formulario que deberá completar y enviar dentro de 28 días. El oficial le proporcionará la dirección. Usted será requerido de un examen medico complete tan pronto como la entrevista con el oficial sea efectuada.
  • Escuche cuidadosamente en la entrevista y pregunte si hay algo que no entiende para que le sea explicado.

¡Advertencia sobre ofertas de inmigración fraudulentas!

¿Ha recibido ofertas de inmigración como éstas?
¡VISAS Y TRABAJOS GARANTIZADOS EN CANADÁ! ¡Permisos de trabajo garantizados! ¡Becas gratuitas! ¡Trabajos muy bien remunerados en Canadá que requieren poca o ninguna experiencia! ¡Pasaje de avión y hospedaje gratuitos! ¡Empleo garantizado! ¡Vivienda garantizada! ¡Programas ESPECIALES! ¡Gane $4.000 dólares mensuales trabajando como personal de aseo en un hotel!
NO SEA VÍCTIMA DE UN FRAUDE. Si la oferta parece demasiado buena para ser cierta, probablemente se trate de un fraude.

Información que sí debe tomar en cuenta:

  • Solo necesita contratar a un representante en materia de inmigración para presentar una solicitud de visa o una solicitud de ciudadanía canadiense si no entiende terminos legales.
  • Los representantes en materia de inmigración no tienen ninguna conexión especial con los funcionarios del Gobierno de Canadá y no pueden garantizarle la obtención de una visa.
  • Sólo los funcionarios autorizados en las embajadas, altos comisionados y consulados de Canadá tienen la facultad de otorgar o denegar una visa.
  • No ceda ante la tentación de utilizar documentos falsos porque ello ocasionará que su solicitud sea rechazada.
  • Tenga cuidado con los fraudes en Internet y con los sitios Web falsos. El sitio Web oficial del Ministerio de Ciudadanía e Inmigración de Canadá (Citizenship and Immigration Canada, o CIC) es www.cic.gc.ca.
  • En el sitio Web del CIC puede descargar de manera gratuita formularios y guías para todos los tipos de visa.
  • El costo de cada trámite (derechos de procesamiento) es el mismo en todas las oficinas de visas canadienses del mundo. Los derechos de procesamiento expresados en la divisa local se calculan aplicando tipos de cambio oficiales y corresponden al monto en dólares canadienses.
  • Las oficinas canadienses de visas nunca le pedirán que deposite dinero en la cuenta bancaria de un individuo ni que envíe dinero a través de una empresa privada que se dedica a las transferencias monetarias.
  • Si tiene preguntas, comuníquese con el Ministerio de Ciudadanía e Inmigración de Canadá (CIC) o con la oficina de visas responsable de su localidad.

FINDING A JOB IN CANADA Occupations in Canada Non-Regulated fields(II)

 Regarding recognition questions there is a difference between academic and professional recognition. In Canada (as in most of the group8  countries) the higher education institutions are directly responsible for the academic recognition (admission, continuation of studies).

Credential recognition   or professional validation  is the recognition required to obtain the right to work in a certain field. Professional recognition differs between regulated and non-regulated professions. In the first case the authority in charge of the regulation of a certain profession must be determinable, as the authority regulating the education leading to a profession is also responsible for the recognition of foreign diplomas in this field. If the education or the right to work is not regulated, then the professional recognition lies solely within the responsibility of the employer. He or she decides whether the qualifications submitted by the candidate are adequate for the job in question. This applies both to Canadian and foreign nationals. However, the Federal Secretariat for Economic Affairs (feco) prescribes the quota regulations for foreign employees, which regulate the granting of work permits. Most self-employees working in non-regulated professions do not need professional recognition but it’s advisable. They are only dependent on the rules of the free market.

Some professions are not regulated but most of the professions in Canada are regulated. In other words, there are  prerequisites such as education, age, experience etc. to be met.

Regulated and Non-Regulated Professions and Occupations in Canada

About 20 per cent of Canadians jobs are “regulated occupations” that require individuals to be licensed, registered or certified before they can legally begin working. Regulated occupations are governed by a regulatory body or college that sets standards of practice, registers or licenses qualified applicants and disciplines members when necessary. The regulatory body is also responsible for assessing and evaluating the credentials of applicants.

Most health professions are governed by regulatory bodies. Some examples are doctors, dentists, nurses, dietitians, midwives, pharmacists, opticians, physiotherapists, naturopaths, psychologists and chiropractors.

Some examples of non-regulated professions include:

•Lawyers
•Accountants
•Architects
•Teachers
•Social Workers
•Veterinarians
•Funeral directors
 

The majority of jobs in Canada are “non-regulated occupations” that don’t require workers to be licensed or registered. Non-regulated occupations range from jobs requiring a lot of education and responsibility to little formal training. Some examples of non-regulated jobs are computer programmers, waiters, office managers, journalists, graphic designers and housekeepers.

Newcomers often choose to work in a non-regulated job while they become licensed in a regulated occupation. The Working in Canada Tool  can be used to determine if your occupation is regulated or non-regulated.

Recognized Trades
Workers must be certified to work in certain trades in Ontario; in other trades, certification is voluntary. Certification means you have passed a provincial examination and earned a Certificate of Qualification to work in a particular trade. Before writing the exam, you must prove that you have experience in the trade and provide a number of documents, including a Social Insurance Number (SIN) card, letters from previous employers or a current employer, letters from unions, certificates, diplomas, licences and official school transcripts.

Examples of certified trades include:

•Plumber
•Electrician
•Hairstylist
•Machinist
