Temporary Foreign Worker (TFW) in Canada

Notice: Effective April 27, 2009, employers who wish to retain a Temporary Foreign Worker (TFW) beyond the term of their current work permit must apply for a NEW LMO at least four months before the permit expires. Service Canada no longer issues Extensions to a Labour Market Opinion (LMO).

To learn more about this change and what it means for employers and TFWs, click on the following link: Temporary Foreign Worker Program – What’s New.

Applying as a temporary foreign worker

The Temporary Foreign Worker (TFW) Program is administered by two federal government departments, Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (Service Canada) and Citizenship and Immigration Canada. The TFW Program provides an opportunity for:

  • Foreign workers to work in Canada temporarily.
  • Canadian employers to address short-term labour shortages by temporarily hiring foreign workers.

In most cases, non-Canadian citizens or permanent residents require work permits from Citizenship and Immigration Canada before working. Temporary foreign workers from certain countries must also obtain a temporary resident visa before arriving in Canada. See Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s website for information on who is eligible to receive a work permit and how to apply.

As a temporary foreign worker, your employer has a role in the application process. Before you receive a work permit, your Alberta employer may have to obtain a Labour Market Opinion (LMO – an approval to hire a foreign worker) from the federal government. Once your employer sends an LMO to you along with an offer of employment, you can apply for a work permit at the designated Canadian visa office.

Some foreign workers can be admitted to work in Canada without their employer having to obtain an LMO. Citizenship and Immigration Canada determines whether an occupation falls under this category.

Arriving: Information for temporary foreign workers in Alberta

The Citizenship and Immigration Canada website includes some information to help temporary foreign workers arriving in Canada. For example, there are some documents that you may need when you enter and work in Canada.

As a temporary foreign worker, your employer is responsible for making sure that you are covered by medical and health insurance and worker’s compensation when you arrive in Canada.

All workers, including temporary foreign workers, are covered by provincial Employment Standards. In general, occupations in Alberta are covered by Occupational Health and Safety legislation (some exceptions are farm workers, housekeepers and nannies).

How to find work in Winnipeg, Canada

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

STEPS in your job search

  1. 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.
  2. Resumé, cover letter, application forms: These are your basic “tools” to tell employers the skills and experience that you can offer.
  3. Where to find jobs openings: Now that you’re ready you need to find an employer who’s ready to hire you. Get in touch with Canadian companies advertising employment opportunities.
  4. 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.

Winnipeg is pretty accepting of new immigrants. You won’t be mistreated or anything. Also, if you are from certain European nations, you might have easier time. Winnipeg has a large population of Eastern European immigrants and people who are descended from Eastern Europeans, mostly Ukrainians and a significant number of Russians.

Also, keep in mind that Winnipeg is a blue-collar working-class and middle-class city. Don’t expect things like a lot of trendy nightclubs or five-star restaurants or things like that. There are a lot of good restaurants serving North American cuisine and various ethnic restaurants, but they are very causal places. The Employment outlook in all Canada will vary depending on your profession. Research type of business/position are you in.

The upsides to Winnipeg are that it is a pretty cheap city and pretty accepting of immigrants, it is certainly less expensive than most cities in European and it is cheaper than many cities in Canada and the US. Housing is pretty affordable. Today you can find someone  paying about $500 a month for pretty nice one bedroom apartment in an area within walking distance of a shopping center and was surrounded by a number of convenience stores and so on.

Top 10 companies to work for in Canada

 Here according to the Financial Post (published Oct. 22, 2008) are the top 10 companies in Canada to work for.

How to identify the jobs you want

You can do this with three simple steps

1.Prepare an effective resume.

There are 3 main resume styles. Choose the one most effective in presenting your qualifications:

Chronological – Most traditional style and most preferred by employers
Best for those with an impressive work history in their field of interest
Effective for people staying within the same field or climbing the career ladder
Useful for new college graduates
Focuses on employment history and education
Experience and education are listed in reverse chronological order

Functional – Viewed skeptically by some employers preferring a more traditional approach
Best for those who have limited work experience in their field of interest
Appropriate for career changers or frequent job changers
Effective for people returning to the work force with employment gaps
Emphasizes skills developed through academic/volunteer/work experiences
Downplays unrelated work experience, stressing transferable job skills
Clusters one’s education, experience, and activities into skill categories

Combination – An increasingly popular choice, preferred over the functional format
Effective for people with widely varied experiences
Suitable when experiences are limited or not clearly related to job objective
Used by new college grads with relevant leadership/internship positions
Combines the elements of the chronological and functional resume types
Highlights marketable skills by summarizing strengths at the beginning
Places vital experiences in reverse chronology, after qualifications summary

2. Build or develop a Portafolio

You’d need one to show prospective employers how good you are and what you can do, so that they might hire you. A personal portfolio website is all about promoting you. You are a brand, and your name is a brand name. No one is going to know about your brand unless you get it out there.

 

3. Carry with you a JIST CARDA JIST Card is a combination of a RESUME and a BUSINESS CARD that fits onto a 3″ by 5″ card.

Best job search methods

One of two best job search methods is leads from people you know .The e second most effective one is by contacting an employer directly. you will be reading brieftly about the second method.

Direct Contact With Employers:

Some Job-Opening Research Publishing businessor matching services, such as Hineni Media Listing ends job seekers directly to the hiring company’s Web site, helping people avoid blind ads—ads in which the hiring company is unknown to the job seeker until late in the interview process. This further increases the likelihood that the job is real instead of a posting from a recruiting consultant who’s trolling for prospects.

We know the value of research. Hineni Media is something that is based on research. Hineni Media shows you all of the jobs on employer websites that you are not going to find elsewhere. Hineni Media is based on Mari’s lifelong passion for research, and is something that can make a huge difference in your life.

How to get a job with a Canadian company

 Call the hiring company directly. If you can’t connect by phone,  e-mailed questions about the position to the company’s human resources department to see if the job has real potential.
 
I would offer these words of caution and advice for any job seekers: First do your homework: Research potential employers as if you are investing in the company. Avoid blind ads, and concentrate on companies and job openings that match your needs and experience. Protect your information: Online resumes should not include your address, telephone number, or home e-mail address. Instead, set up new e-mail and voice mail accounts that can be cancelled if they become inundated. Study job boards: Although big sites on Internet sites may not be the best way to find a new position, job listings are a good place to jump-start your search and test the effectiveness of your resume. Set realistic goals: Job search sites are a good place to look, but set realistic goals. At worst, they will give you information about the types of jobs that are available. At best, you could land a great new position.
 

How job seekers find jobs in Canada: the “hidden’ job market

The “hidden’ job market  is made up of openings that become available but don’t get widely published,  but why the employers like the hidden market?

Most employers like to use it because they like to save time and money. Adverstise costs money.  He or the company also needs to save time on reading applications and setting up interviews. So how employers use it?

Employers mostly like to depend on recomendations. This can be done asking an insider employee which usually knows someone as a good and realiable worker for his/her boss or company departament. Thus you see that traditional job search methods such as want ads and employment agencies will not help you find hidden jobs .

what con you do  do about it ?  You can

1. Identify the jobs, positions and companies you want

2. Prepare an effective resume

3.  Carry with you a JIST CARD
