These are trades and professions that are most in demand

From the skilled trades to college professor, check out this list of the top 10 hot jobs and discover the positions that are in demand across Canada. If you’re stuck in a part-time job and want a real career, are deciding what to study, or are even considering a change in work, read on!  These trades and professions are booming, so if you have the training and aptitude for one of these gigs, you can expect good money, a relative amount of job security and the knowledge that companies are vying to hire you (you hot commodity, you!). And remember, the average worker changes careers — not jobs, but careers — three to seven times. So don’t be afraid to take the plunge into something new.

1. Financial manager
Demand for money managers is increasing as the private and government sectors are looking for whizzes who know the complexities of financial management.

What to expect: An unemployment rate half that of the Canadian average.

Tip: If you have knowledge of foreign finance or are fluent in a foreign language, consider yourself doubly attractive — and pack your bags for a potentially jet-set international career.
2. Skilled tradesperson.

If you don’t want an office job, but do want a salary that pays above the national average, this is the sector for you. As chefs, horticulturalists), construction (electricians, carpenters, plumbers), transportation (aviation technicians, automotive service technicians) and manufacturing (industrial mechanics, tool and die makers) sectors.

3. College or vocational school teacher

The boom in skilled trades means there’s also a need for instructors at community colleges, Quebec’s CEGEPs, technical institutes and other vocational schools.

What to expect: The number of job openings exceeds the number of candidates, especially with retirements expected over the years to come, plus increased government funding.

Tip: If your discipline is new technology or the skilled trades, your prospects are particularly good.

4. Dentist or dental hygienist
the industry will continue to grow as Canada’s aging population requires more care, more Canadians enjoy dental coverage, and the booming demand for adult cosmetic dentistry continues.
5. Computer and information systems managers

Overall, our reliance on computers at home and at work will continue to grow, meaning job security and continuous opportunities for training and growth.
Wage growth is still better than average, as are actual wages (almost double the national average), while the unemployment rate is well below the national average.

6. University professor
 With below-average unemployment and above-average wages, plus a wave of retirements on the horizon, prospects are strong.
but unless you’ve already got a Ph.D. in the closet, you’ll need to embark upon if your heart is set on being a university professor.

7. Human resource specialist or manager
Demand for human resources specialists and managers is increasing and expected to stay strong, as companies place greater emphasis than ever before on human resources issues such as recruitment, training, employee relations and retention.

What to expect: There are more job openings than job seekers in this field, so prospects are great. Just like you always thought, being a people person does pay off.

8. Pharmacist
A growing and aging population means more prescriptions needing to be filled. From hospital pharmacists to your friendly local pharmacist, there’s greater demand for them than there are qualified grads or trained immigrants to fill the positions.

What to expect: Good pay, and many pharmacists are self-employed — they own the pharmacies they work in.

9. Registered nurse
Canada’s aging population means this sector’s a dynamic place to be. You’ll be in high demand: there are more jobs than registered nurses due to retirement, enrollment in nursing programs is declining and there’s a strong need for nurses internationally.

10. Retail manager
If you’re not hung up on high wages (managerial positions pay only slightly above the national average) but like flexible hours and love helping people, and you have transferable skills but perhaps no post-secondary education, this is the field for you.

Existe mucha confusión acerca de los permisos de trabajo que emiten las autoridades canadienses.  Estos permisos ó work permits, son visas temporales de trabajo y son emitidos solamente en casos específicos, son relacionados con programas para sectores específicos como el programa de trabajadores agrícolas mexicanos y del Caribe. Sabemos que existen sectores de la economía Canadiense que están trabajando con el gobierno para establecer programas específicos a sus necesidades laborales. Entre estos sectores están aquellos de petróleo y gas, construcción y turismo.  Los cuales tienen muchisima demanda.

Más de 90,000 personas al año trabajan en Canadá con visas temporales de trabajo (work permits).  Se espera que este número vaya en aumento cada año en especial a partir del 2006 debido a que varios sectores de la economía Canadiense tenian serios problemas de falta de mano de obra calificada.  Los gobiernos provinciales y federal de Canadá están conscientes de este problema y planean incrementar el número de trabajadores extranjeros (foreign workers) en Canadá.

En ciertos casos como en el nuevo programa para estudiantes universitarios (que estudien en universidades o colleges Canadienses pero fuera de las zonas metropolitanas de Toronto, Montréal y Vancouver) existen permisos de trabajo para que estos extranjeros puedan trabajar (fuera del campus universitario).  Otro segmento de trabajadores extranjeros que están en Canadá con permisos de trabajo es el de intercompany transferees, empleados transferidos por la empresa en la que trabajan para ejercer sus actividades en la sucursal o planta de esa empresa en Canadá.


“These steps must be followed before you apply for a work permit:

  1. An employer must first offer you a job.

  2. HRSDC must normally provide a labour market opinion or ‘confirmation’ of your job offer. However, some types of work are exempt from this process.

  3. After HRSDC confirms that a foreign national may fill the job, you apply to CIC for your work permit.”

Para poder solicitar un permiso de trabajo es necesario que una empresa Canadiense PRIMERO le haga una oferta de empleo al extranjero.  Esta oferta debe ser “certificada” por el Ministerio de Recursos Humanos de Canada (HRSDC).  Esta certificación significa que la empresa ha comprobado que no hay un residente o ciudadano en el país quien pueda hacer ese trabajo ó que dicho empleo está exento por estar en sectores con aguda escasez de mano de obra. Finalmente cuando HRDSC ha certificado/confirmado esa plaza el extranjero puede solicitar el permiso de trabajo.

Existen excepciones como la de estudiantes extranjeros a nivel escuela técnica superior y universidad, algunos estudios de post-grado y doctorados, bajo los cuales el estudiante y/o su conyugue tienen acceso a permisos temporales de trabajo.

Otras excepciones caen bajo tratados bilaterales o multilaterales entre Canadá y otros países como pueden ser NAFTA/TLCAN y GATT.  Sin embargo aquí también existe confusión en cuanto a las excepciones. Por ejemplo, el venir a Canadá de un país de NAFTA (México y EUA) no implica que el profesional puede trabajar aquí. Por ejemplo, bajo el TLCAN:

“Business visitors may work in Canada without a work permit. They enter Canada for international business activities, without entering the Canadian labour market.”

Visitantes de negocios pueden trabajar en Canadá sin permiso de trabajo.  Pero no pueden buscar empleo o recibir remuneración dentro de Canadá. Su actividad comercial debe estar relacionada con ventas y mercadeo por ejemplo o servicio post-ventas pero no puede entregar productos (sino tomar pedidos). Puede venir  a hacer investigación, asistir a congresos y conferencias.

 “All businesspersons covered by the NAFTA are exempt from the need to obtain approval from HRDC. This means that Canadian employers do not need to have a job offer approved by HRDC to employ a U.S. or Mexican businessperson.”

Si una empresa Canadiense desea contratar a una persona de EUA o México, no requiere de comprobación de HRDSC. Sin embargo “The NAFTA applies to four specific categories of businesspersons: business visitors, professionals, intra-company transferees, and traders and investors.”

En conclusión, obtener un permiso de trabajo (visa temporal de trabajo) no es una cuestión sencilla o que está disponible para todas las personas que quisieran trabajar en Canadá.   Obtener una oferta de empleo  es cuestion de saber manejar el caso, estar informado y lograr la oferta. Muchas  empresa Canadienses quiere saber sobre la disponibilidad de la persona o si tiene la visa de residencia permanente.
