Canadian Seasonal Job Market (I)

If you’re looking for short-term work, you might want to explore the many seasonal jobs available to people in Canada. Though most may think of the seasonal job as a retail position during the winter holidays, there are actually many types of work that occur in different seasons and require a higher number of employees than usual. In canada most of  the seasonal job is tourism or agricultural based.

For instance, it’s pretty easy to find summer jobs at places like theme parks, on resorts,  hotels and restaurants with heavy summer tourist traffic in Vancouver or Montreal. Employing a higher number of people year round wouldn’t make sense, but having extra employees during peak season can help with the extra work required.

Canada offers visas to prospective citizens as well as temporary workers. Depending on your current status, Canada has a visa that applies to you. Skilled workers, temporary employees, live in caregivers, agricultural laborers and college graduates each have to apply for distinct visas. However, the application process is simplified by the Canadian government in an attempt to attract foreign workers. Processing visas is often completed within three days and ranges from $75 to $150 for the individual.  Other opportunities that do not require visas can be arranged through work exchange program, but still involve authorization through Canadian agencies. These reciprocal programs help place foreign exchange students and teachers as well as workers filling co-op positions.

The Canadian government makes a point to advertise work opportunities to prospective foreign employees. This makes job hunting easier for you!

There are a number of employers that position seasonal employees in jobs that match their interests and skills. On top of this, Canadian embassies, individual resorts and national parks all have listings on their respective websites. It’s time for you to visit Canada, find an exciting job and explore the natural beauty.

Labour Market Information-Canada Employment Connections (I)

Labor Market Information (LMI) can help you get details on Canadian companies, develop job descriptions, obtain affirmative action data, learn about wages in your the area of interest and make sound economic decisions.

 Finding the job you want has to be a planned, systematic effort. The job search will test your self-knowledge, research skills, organization, persistence, and persuasion. You’ll find that that research skills will not only help you in searching for a new job in Canada , but will come in handy in many other situations in the future.

Knowledge is power.  Canadian employers value job-seekers who know key information about the company because that knowledge demonstrates your interest and enthusiasm for the company and for the job. These steps will take you on a short journey through the basic steps in conducting company research.

Step 1: Where to Do Research

If you really have no idea of what companies might be best for you, there are some good places to start. A number of media (pubications &  websites) have already done the research for you — and have produced various “best” directories, lists, guide, newsletter, databases… best employee-owned companies, best companies for minorities, best  diversity companies, best multicultural companies , etc.

Step 2. How to gather the very basics for  job search research:

1.Starting your job-search and looking to identify key companies in your profession or industry, or even in a specific geographic location.

2. When you are apply to an employer; it’s always best to relate yourself to the company and tailor your cover letter and resume to each employer.

3. When you have been invited to a job interview; you’ll want to showcase your knowledge of the company knowing the most you can about it.
 

Step 3: Determine What Information You Want
You are usually seeking two sets of information.

The first set of information deals with general company information. The types of information you might gather here include: products and services, history and corporate culture, organizational mission and goals, key financial statistics, organizational structure (divisions, subsidiaries, etc.), and locations (main and branches).

The second set of information deals with employment issues, do they hire foreign trained professionals? what about  their plans for  career paths and advancement opportunities, benefits, diversity initiatives, and other human resources functions?.

 

Step 4: Direct Approach

Probably the single best resource of company information is the company’s Website.
The next easiest thing to do is go to your favorite search engine, such as Google.com, and type the company’s name in the search box. Then simply follow the link to the company’s Website.

Among the two best sources for gathering information on certain public Canadian companies is Scott’s Online.

Finding information about private companies — and the vast majority of all companies in Canada are private — is a bit trickier. Two basic sources are Globe and Mail Largest Private Companies list  and  Profit Magazine list of Canada’s fastest growing privately-held companies.

If you are interested in working for a non-profit organization or association, the best research tools to use include the resources HM provide in our Provincial Non-Profit & Charity List.

Another great source of company information comes from the Yellowpages published in all Canadian provinces. There are also specialized industry-specific publications. Another great source that covers  Canada industry is strategies Canada.  lastly but not least we’ve developed a tool  at  HM  which is the Canadian database  for Int’l  Professional or Hineni CED. You’ll find several hundred companies, organized alphabetically or provincially.

Find more resources in our Guide to Researching Companies, Industries, and Provinces.

How to immigrate to Québec

 If you want to immigrate to Québec,  you need to apply through CIC. The type of application you make, depends on which immigration category you want to apply under. Here some basic steps:

  1. Go or attend information meeting organized and sponsored mainly by Québec Government Office. Such  meetings are informative but you need to take a broader view of things. Indeed those speakers were there to sell Québec. They emphasised the ups and do linger sometimes on all the downs.
  2.  Do some research on Québec (if you read French, better !!)
  3.  Next step is to determine which visa to apply for. There are several possibilities (You can see the different visas on Immigration Québec website and if you are between 18 and 35, you can also check more post in this blog ). If you chose the permanent resident visa that one would enable you to stay in Canada as long as you wished. To meet the selection criteria, you needed to have enough points. The points are given by degrees, being of childbearing age (Québec needs to counter population ageing), speaking French and English… On the Immigration Québec Website, you can fill out a Preliminary Evaluation for Immigration that enables you to evaluate your chances of being selected by Québec.
  4.  Fill out the official immigration application and pay the fee.
  5.  Wait, Yes WAIT, it could take a while up to sixmonths. The waiting period can be shorter if your occupation is listed “in demand” in Québec.  The waiting period can be longer and last several years if you live in third world countries. i.ge: Africa or in Latin America.
  6.  Then you might be invited for an interview at Québec Government Office nearest to you.

How Canadian labor market information can help you

Labour market information can change your life  It really can and in fact, it probably already has.
 
Labour market information is data about the world of work, including about different types of work and learning opportunities. It also includes labour market trends and forecasts about future employment growth.
 
Labour market information can help you:
 
•    Find work – it can help you to tap into the hidden job market – most job openings aren’t advertised. Information about who is hiring or who may be hiring in the near future can help you focus your job search.

•    Choose an education or training program – finding out which training credentials employers are looking for, and where suitable programs are offered, is an important part of making a wise choice when it comes to choosing a program.

•    Choose an occupation – if you are going to spend time and money preparing for an occupation, it’s worthwhile to do some research first. What is a typical day on the job like? How good are the employment prospects? What is the average salary range?
 

Summing up, the chances of accessing a labor platform, take 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 work market of the Canadian city you wish to move to.

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

How to apply in Canada as an independent professional immigrant

Who can apply as an independent professinal immigrant?  

Anyone in the world outside Canada can apply for permanent residence as an independent applicant. If you are a visitor in Canada and decide that you want to live in Canada, you will be required to apply for permanent residence from abroad or your country of origin.  

What are the advantages of going to Canada as an independent immigrant?   

As soon as you arrive in Canada, you are given the status of a permanent resident. You can live, study and work in Canada permanently. You will also enjoy the benefits from all social programs available to any Canadian citizen. You can work with any employer or get any job. 

After 3 years of permanently residing in Canada, you can now apply to become a Canadian Citizen!  Note that Canada also allows dual citizenship and does not require their citizens to renounce their other citizenships. So when you become a Canadian citizen, you can still maintain the other citizenships that you got from other countries.

 What is the difference between Canadian Permanent Visa and a USA Immigration H1B Visa?

The US immigration system selects skilled workers with a right to work in the United States. But, the US immigration system does not easily approve permanent residency status. Many of these skilled workers on an H1B status can be sent back to their home country if their Green Card is not approved before the 6-year limit on H1s expires. Then after obtaining your green card, you may have to wait  for years before you can get the  US citizenship. 
under the the Canadian Skilled Class Immigration system, skilled workers once approved,  you are automatically given the permanent residency status. This entitles you to change employers, relocate, and sponsor family members to emigrate which is not available under the US H1B visa. Even if you lose your job, you can still remain in Canada and enjoy most of the rights and privileges accorded to a Canadian citizen.
Advantages for professional immigrants in Canada

Work years and academic capacities are not forgotten in Canada. This is mainly because Canada does not only need people for manufactured jobs, but it is also looking for people that are trained in different knowledge areas.
 
 
 I am a professional. What does Canada has to offer me? Advantages for professional immigrants.

The Canadian federal government has performed some projections, which imply that in a period of time, of less than 15 years, there will be a really high professional demand in their national territory, and this deficit will not be covered by Canadians by themselves.

This is why, knowing this situation, there are better opportunities to access a permanent residency visa, for those appliers that already have a profession; and specially, for those professions that are considered a priority by the Canadian federal government, or by it high demand on Canada’s work market.

 
 
 Some areas that are considered as a priority are health, informatics technology, and teaching. Because, the category that the immigrant will receive for working in any of those areas, is the independent immigrant rank.

 
The programs Skilled Worker Immigration, is a special program for professional workers that are looking for the permanent residency. Among other requirements to reach the minimum score you need in their evaluation system, you have to accomplish the following items:

– English or French domain (both official languages in Canada), accreditation of the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) certificate for English and the TEF (Test d’Evaluation de Francais) for French.
– Ages between 21 and 49 years old.
– Educational level: certification of higher education
– Previous work experience (at least one year of experience)
– Show quick adaptation to new environments capacity (conjugal situation, the existence of a work offer in Canada)
– Existence of working precedents in Canada (if the applier has obtained a previous temporary work permission)

 
 
It is also valid to write down that the applier must show that he can improve in some way the Canadian economy. There are some demands regarding the fulfillment of some health conditions and criminal records (not having any criminal record at all).

The main objective of this program is to attract people that are prepared in knowledge areas, which are required due to the Canadian work situation. The Skilled Worker Immigration program, offers as a main advantage the possibility of making and individual or familiar (parents and sons) immigration.

On the other hand, in 2006, the law of Fair Access for Regulated Professions was approved, which forces different institutions to perform fair evaluation processes, regarding the grades of professionals that were educated in other nations, and whose professions are regulated in Canada (Engineering, Medicine, etc.). This law also authorized the creation of an Assistance Center, for those immigrants that are having difficulties in the process of revalidation of their professional credentials.

In some governments of the Canadian provinces, such as Ontario’s government, there are special programs such as Internship for the Internationally Trained. This program was designed to help foreign professionals in their integration into the local labor force. It consists in giving away training platforms, which last for 6 months; they require a minimum of 3 years of previous work experience.

Summing up, the chances of accessing a labor platform, take 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 work market of the Canadian city you wish to move to.

Coming to Canada as a business immigrant

Starting a business is an excellent way to start your professional or career life in Canada.

Whether you are planning to come to Canada as a business immigrant, foreign investor or self-employed person, Hineni Media has a variety of resources to help you
 

Start your business in Canada

Canada is home to many world leading businesses and that does not happen by chance: the country combines everything a business needs to be successful, making it attractive to anyone wishing to invest in a new country and contribute to its growth.

If you have a great business idea and are ready to work hard to build it from the ground up, then you may wish to start your own business. But if you want to hit the ground running and avoid some of the common start-up pitfalls, then buying an existing business or a successful franchise may be a better option for you.

1) Start your own

Applies to: All of Canada

Are you interested in moving to Canada to start a business? If you are an experienced business person, you may be eligible to immigrate under the Business Immigration Program.

You can apply as an entrepreneur or self-employed person.

•Entrepreneurs need business experience, a minimum net worth of $300,000 and commit to owning and operating a business in Canada.
•Self-employed persons need to contribute to the cultural or athletic life in Canada, or purchase and manage a farm.
 

2) Buying a business or franchise

Buying into a franchise in Canada is a great way to start your own business and establish yourself in your new country.

Canada is home to the second largest franchise industry in the world, with over 75,000 units currently operating. Annual sales from Canadian franchises add up to over CA$100 billion, and over 500 franchisors from the US have branched out into the Canadian market.

What is franchising?

Franchising is a way of doing business where the franchisor authorises an individual or group (the franchisee) to offer, sell or distribute goods or services under their professional strategy or marketing plan. It is very effective for establishing and developing a brand and achieving a large market share. Franchises in Canada are generally classed as either ‘product or service’ or ‘business format’. While most franchises usually are more one category than the other, many still combine both aspects.

Benefits of buying a franchise
Buying into a franchise gives you the ability to run your own business and get involved with an established brand. Entering into a franchise as a newcomer to Canada can be a great idea, as there is a lower risk of failure and you’ll have the added security of start-up help.

There is a vast array of franchise opportunities ranging from coffee and pizza restaurants to gyms and home services. Start out by looking within a field of business that holds particular interest for you, or one in an area that you’re already know a lot about.

Be prepared for the franchise business
Starting a franchise can seem like a safe bet with guaranteed success, but there are pitfalls of which you should be aware. Thousands of people join the franchise community every year in Canada, and while statistics show that most prove to be successes, not everyone is cut out for it and it is imperative that a prospective franchisee knows what they’re in for.
It is important to note that purchasing a franchise can be expensive, with steep start-up and ongoing costs, and that you will be required to follow the guidelines set out by the franchisor. It is recommended you do your homework when considering with the type of franchise you’d like to buy. Some franchisors can be exceptionally strict with their regulations, so if you find it hard to take direction or prefer to go your own way, it is advisable to go with a franchisor who is more relaxed with their guidelines.

On the flipside, having rigid instructions can be beneficial when you’re unsure of a new industry and new to a country. This discrepancy also extends to the costs involved. Start-up and ongoing expenses can vary greatly depending on the industry and how established the franchise is.

Keep in mind that you have more to lose than the franchisor – you’re the one investing your money and livelihood in the business. You can and should ask a lot of questions and research the franchise as much as you can before getting involved and expect the same of the franchisor. Mutual respect and honesty is the best place to start.

Facts about franchising in Canada:
•97% of franchises that open in Canada are still in business five years later, and a full 86% are still operating under the original ownership.
•A new franchise opens in Canada every two hours.
•The average franchise fee in Canada is $25,000.
•One franchise operation exists for every 450 Canadians.
