Posts Tagged ‘ Finding a Canadian work sponsor ’



You may think that having undergone the process of qualifying for emigration to Canada and having your skills assessed and approved, you are on the straight and narrow and Canada will welcome you with open arms. Migrant skills, your skills, are in demand, right? Well, yes, whilst that is true and that you have qualified to enter the country based on them, might be true but that  is not the case for you to find and walk straight into your dream job.

You see, whilst the skills that you possess have clearly been identified as being ‘in demand’, it does not necessarily follow that working for your employer with immediate effect can take place, especially at the income you might think you’ll be taking home in your wage packet. How ones job operates in the Asia,EU or the US is not necessarily indicative of how the same job can be carried out in Canada.


A retail or hospital pharmacist, a worthy example of a job skill in demand throughout Canada, who has a professional degree qualification obtained in the UK, has worked for a large number of years in the profession and who is a member of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain, will not be able to commence work in Canada without undergoing a one-year work under supervision (pre-registration) period and completing extra curricular study leading to passes in both verbal and written examination leading to state licensing. Pay will be at pre-registration level.

An ambitious, time-served air-conditioning engineer who wants to set up work on his own cannot without the necessary licence and for this he or she needs to undergo a lengthy period of work under supervision.

These two examples, which can be applied to so many trades and professions in the provinces and territories, may make you feel you’re no nearer your goal in achieving your dream life in Canada, but it’s not all that bad. Really, it’s not.


English expat, Judy White, an Canadian resident of three years and colaborator of work in Canada recently highlighted to us the employment issues facing new migrants, both from the UK and other parts of the world. Your resume (C.V.) will, understandably, be written for your home country, not Canada. It sounds ludicrous to think that such an easy document to scrutinise and make a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ decision upon should be unfamiliar in a foreign country like Canada, but it’s a fact of life. It seems every migrant is required to spend much time re-shaping the style and content of their resume to appeal to Canadian employers, simply just to get a foot in the door and not be turned away in an instance. Consider also that a resume should appeal to the employer and subtle changes that emphasise certain aspects of your working background can reap reward.

Hineni Media can help you do this and, you’ll be pleased to hear, will seek out job opportunities local to the area you intend to emigrate to or are currently settled in, identify state, territory or national work licences you need to operate successfully and advise on how you go about getting such licences.
