A visa is an official authorization appended to a passport, permitting entry into and travel within a particular country or region.
– A work permit is a generic term for a legal authorization, which allows a person to take employment. It is most often used in reference to instances where a person is given permission to work in a country where one does not hold citizenship,
– Immigration is the act of immigrating; the passing or coming into a country for the purpose of permanent residence.
It will depend on how long you want to go for, why you want to go and certain other factors as to which of the visas you must apply for.
 
 
Types of Visas
Canada offers a range of immigration opportunities and probably does more than most other countries to encourage skilled workers to move to Canada. There are four main categories for visas and there is also an option for a work permit:
Skilled Worker Class – The Skilled Worker Visa for Canada is the most popular way of applying for migration to Canada. This allows you to enter Canada with the right to work without first needing to find a job. Find out if you qualify by using a Canada Skilled Worker Points Calculator.
Business Class – Canadian Business Immigration offers three different Canada Business Visa categories for business immigration to Canada for potential migrants wishing to Invest or start a business in Canada.
Family Class – Canadian citizens and permanent residents living in Canada, 18 years of age or older, may sponsor close relatives or family members who want to become permanent residents of Canada.
Citizenship – Although you can’t apply for Canadian citizenship until you have lived in Canada for at least three years, you can be thinking about what it means from the moment you arrive.
Work Permits – A work permit for Canada can only be obtained if you have an offer of employment before applying for your Canadian work visa. Canada seeks to attract temporary skilled workers to fill positions that Canadian employers are currently having difficulty to fill by a Canadian Permanent Resident or Citizen.

Where to find job opportunities In Canada?

What can you do when you have to find a job fast? It’s not easy, but there are steps you can take to expedite your job search.

Job opportunities can be found anywhere from a Help Wanted ad placed in a store window, to ads online or in Canada’s major newspaper, to major employers who hire “head-hunters” to find a new company official. Job fairs Increasingly, employers are working with Canada wide or Provincial Labour and Immigration and some employment service providers to hold “job fairs.” Immigrants are invited to meet employers. To know what job fairs are happening, regularly check the newspaper section Events.

Monster or Workpolis are free website that shows you what jobs are available daily in Canadian Provinces by Industry. It also gives detailed information including qualification and language requirements. Workopolis.com is the job website most Canada wide employers use to advertise job openings not all but is something.

Recruiters Some companies – particularly those with IT, office or accounting needs – hire a staffing, or placement, agency to find employees. These agencies advertise positions or seek out people whose skills meet the needs of employers. You should contact these employment agencies and have them add your name and work experience to their database. They CANNOT charge you any fee.

‘Hidden’ job market

It is said that most Canadian employers do not advertise when they have job openings. That is why we refer to the “hidden” job market.

To find opportunities you must “network.” That means doing things such as talking to people you know to find out who is hiring, contacting employers directly, attending job fairs, contacting groups involved in your field of work. ‘

Networking’

Networking means making social contacts. This way you can hear about unadvertised jobs, and employers can hear about you. Here are some methods: Get to know people in your neighbourhood and in your industry or profession. Talk to employment and professional counsellors, employers, and colleagues. By talking to people you will also come to understand your industry and what businesses look for in new employees. Join professional associations. Subscribe to their newsletters. Attend professional events and meetings. Attend public meetings and community events. Give and collect business cards. Contact Canadian employers directly, use HM Major Employment Companies Directory is a content website that lists all employers in the province,what they do and their contact informacion.

The Job Interview

Employers place a lot of importance on meeting a prospective employee. An interview could be an informal conversation or it could be a structured format with pre-determined questions in front of a panel of interviewers. The employer reviews paper applications. The next step is to call some candidates in for an interview. This could happen quickly or it make take a company weeks to decide who to interview. Be prepared to listen, answer and ask — in English. Have a positive attitude about yourself. Know that your skills and personal qualities would be an asset to the employer. The best way to learn about interviews is by taking advantage of advice offered by immigrant employment service agencies.

Regional resource for job seekers

Ontario, Manitoba, Vancouver , Calgary and Montreal , etc all Canada have many employment offices across the province. Free services include career counselling, information about job openings and the use of computers for resumé writing and Internet job search. Also, they can give information about government employment assistance programs. If you are an immigrant who lives in rural area you are advised to go to Employment of that Province.

How to search, and where to get a job in Canada

It is each person’s responsibility to find a job.

The way of looking for work may be quite different than in your home country.  It’s not easy, but there are steps you can take to expedite your job search. Spending some time to get your job search in order, keeping it organized, focused, and on the fast track will help you find a job faster than if you don’t have a plan in place.

There are government and community agencies that will help you learn job search skills and help you find opportunities.

STEPS in your job search Job search skills:

Your first step is to have a plan. By knowing where to go and what to do you will achieve your goal.

Resumé, cover letter, application forms:  These are your basic “tools” to tell employers the skills and experience that you can offer.

Where to find jobs openings: Now that you’re ready with all the tools mention above you need to find an employer who’s ready to hire you. Read the ways that Canada companies advertise employment opportunities in this greatcompany directory.

Job interview: Meeting your potential employer for the first time is the crucial moment.

Work experience, language and culture all play a part in this one-on-one meeting. Have yours polished.

Job search skills :  for newcomers already hear the best place to learn job search skills including resumé writing and how to conduct yourself in an interview by participating in one of the free workshops or longer programs offered by the organizations that Canada funds to provide employment services to newcomers. These free services have extended programs as well as one-day “workshops.” Participating in these services is also an excellent way to find out about job opportunities and career fairs.

For newcomers above we offer interview coaching services by phone or web. Contact us for details or check our parent site.

 Resumé, cover letter, application forms :

To get a job you must convince employers that it would be to their advantage to hire you. You need to “market” yourself with a well-written resumé that explains your education and experience. Before you write, you need to know what Canadian employers expect; resumés here are often very different than in other countries.

 A cover letter is the letter of introduction that you send or present with your resumé. Canadian employers expect to read certain things in a letter. You should always include a cover letter. It tells the employer the purpose of the letter, who should receive it, the position being applied for.

Application forms are provided by employers. The form asks specific questions and you answer them by filling in the blanks. It is a good idea to familiarize yourself with job applications before you go see an employer. Canadian employers expect to see references. This usually means people you have worked for in the past who can speak for you. If you have no Canadian work experience this can be difficult. This is why it is important to network — get to know people — so that an employer has someone to phone and ask about your experience and character. Immigrant employment services are an excellent source of information. You can also find samples of “Canadian style” resumés and cover letters on site such as workopolis and others Job Banks.
