Canada: From Work Permit To Permanent Residence

Working temporarily in Canada can be used as a step towards gaining residence and settling here permanently.

Job Opportunities for Ethnic Minority Students & Graduates

People from ethnic minorities are no longer automatically disadvantaged in modern Canada,  athough racism still exists, progress on promoting racial equality in the last decade helped to create a society that is more comfortable with diversity than ever before, “Canada today is not the same place as it was a decade ago”.

It is evident throughout the professions. Ethnic minority students in Canada are winning places in top and diverse firms only to be channelled into less commercial areas of technology, health, law, broadcasting, investment banking, teaching, the police and the and Civil Service. They work hard to qualify. They work hard to get training contracts. Just like all locals born students do. Only to find themselves caught in the centre of a corporate maze, where all the exit routes are career dead ends. They have neither the contacts nor the networks that other local students have. But social media and networking groups are helping to change that. And they have an important role to play.

So just how Black , Asian or White are certain professions? Here we present some  tips for you as ethnic and visible minority get a job opportunity.

Tips on Finding a Job in Canada

 To be successful in Canada, you must have the job-search tools and the know-how to compete head-to-head successfully with an Canadian applicant.

If you plan to go to Canada  as a temporary-worker, you must prove to Canadian immigration that you are not replacing the talents of an Canadian worker and that no other Canadian worker could do what you do or wants to do what you do. The most critical element of your Canada job search is knowing which industries you are most likely to be hired.

However, as technology developes the Canadian workplace, some of the traditional good jobs’ that overseas workers were previously able to secure in Canada are in less and less demand.

According to the service Canada website, jobs sectors such as farmers, garment sewing machine operators, private household cleaners, typists and word processors, bookkeepers, accountants, audit clerks and bank tellers have already been in decline, and will continue to stagnate to the point of offering limited job opportunities in the years to come.

These employment positions have deteriorated as world industries harmonize their labor force needs and rely on the computer or outsourcing to do the work once accomplished in  Canada. Needless to say, you probably shouldn’t look to Canada for this kind of work. Instead, do your homework and open an atlas.

The key to getting to Canada faster is by finding employers that truly need you. You should determine which Canadian Provinces are in desperate need of your type of experience. Do some research on hot or in-demand jobs, and which fields are in rapid expansion mode and cannot get enough people to feed the demand for talent.

 Look for employment trends province-by-province through the Internet or here .  If you would like more information about current Canada job news and more effective insider tips for landing a job in Canada, please visit

Quiere trabajar o  conseguir empleo en Canada ? Aqui le ponemos los pasos generales que se toman en la mayoria de las provincias para obtener el permiso
de trabajo o ( work permit)

Los pasos para conseguir un permiso de trabajo son:

1)    Conseguir un empleador que lo quiera contratar

2)    El empleador debe tener o debe conseguir un Labour Market Opinion (LMO):

a.    El LMO es un permiso que el empleador le pide al gobierno para poder contratar a un foráneo.
b.    El empleador o patron puede pedir un formato LMO en la siguiente página web:
c.    El LMO estipula el tipo de empleo, pago, horas y beneficios que el trabajador va a tener. d.    El LMO debe incluir su nombre: Si la empresa ya tiene LMO, entonces hay que añadir su nombre. Si no tiene LMO, la empresa pide uno nombrándolo a usted. Toda la información para obtener un LMO esta en esta página:
e.    Hay LMOs que salen en 2 o 5 días, apresurando así el proceso. Estos se llaman “expedited LMO” y es solo para un cierto número de ocupaciones. La aplicación que debe llenar el empleadores para este tipo de LMO esta en la siguiente página (también incluye una lista de ocupaciones): 

3)    Puede que requiera un examen médico. Este examen solo lo puede hacer un doctor autorizado por Citizenship and Immigration Canada. Para una lista de estos doctores en su país o en Canadá vaya a la siguiente página:

4)    Va a requerir un pasado de antecedentes no penales de su país y de cualquier otro país en donde haya vivido por más de seis meses después de haber cumplido los 18 años de edad. Para instrucciones vaya a:

5)    El empleador debe darle una copia del LMO (este puede tardar entre 5 días y 2 meses en salir, y todo depende de la ocupación para la que va a trabajar)

6)    Con copia del LMO, un contrato firmado (el contrato debe de prometer las mismas condiciones que las del LMO), carta de oferta de trabajo, antecedentes no penales, pruebas de que cumple los requisitos del trabajo (esto puede incluir certificados de graduación de la preparatoria/bachillerato, y cartas de recomendación de antiguos empleadores) debe pedir el permiso de trabajo DESDE FUERA DE CANADA.

a.    Si es visitante/turista en Canadá tiene que salir del país.
b.    Si proviene de un país que requiera visa para entrar a Canadá (Colombia, Chile, Perú, Ecuador, Guatemala, etc.) debe hacer la aplicación en la embajada de Canadá en su país.
c.    Si proviene de un país que no requiera visa para entrar a Canadá (México, España), puede pedir el permiso al entrar a Canadá (aeropuerto, puerto marítimo, o frontera con E.U). Pero primero debe salir del país y luego al entrar pedir el permiso


♦    Puede obtener empleo por medio de una agencia mediadora o reclutadora, pero tenga mucho cuidado con quien trata
♦    No le pueden cobrar por conseguirle el empleo o el permiso sino por informacion o consulta.  Las agencias que le cobren por conseguirle el permiso lo están haciendo ilegalmente y solo se presta para problemas en el futuro: ¡no se arriesgue!
♦    El contrato que firme con esta agencia no puede prohibirle renunciar antes del término de su permiso. Si en el contrato existe una cláusula prohibiéndole la renuncia a menos de que pague una suma de dinero, ese contrato es ilegal. 
♦    No le crea a ninguna agencia o empleador que le garantice la residencia permanente (nada es 100% seguro).
♦    No firme ningún contrato en español que no sea idéntico al de ingles (asegúrese de que tengan el mismo número de cláusulas, y pida la opinión de otra persona bilingüe)
♦    Siempre pida copia del LMO (Labour Market Opinion)
♦    Ninguna agencia de colocación o empleador lo puede deportar. Si tratan de hacerlo eso es equivalente a un secuestro y puede denunciarlos ante la policía.

Aun con todos los papeles en orden, el oficial de inmigración a la entrada del país le puede deportar.

Aprenda sobre los derechos del trabajador y las posibilidades de residencia permanente antes de firmar un contrato para que no se lleve sorpresas desagradables.

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. The packages they offer fall into two categories.

As part of our Sponsorship Package we will make the initial introduction on your behalf, professionally promoting your skills, experience and qualifications in order to encourage sponsorship.

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.

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.

Why Use listing directories in Seeking Employment?

While most job sites these days are free, Hineni Media charges a subscription. For that fee, you ‘ll get diverse employment sources , perspective and begin to think strategically and placing yourself in the best position to take full advantage of career opportunities you can even to dream about.

When you get the source by occupation or by industry give you certain advantages:  Knowing the occupation allows you to se which industries are and  will  be having the most growth in number of jobs in Canada , also knowingg by industry allows you to see which occupations in 240 different industries or more will grow faster or have the largest increase in jobs in Canada.

Your job search, whether it is an engineering job search, a physician job search, an attorney job search, an IT job search, an internal medicine job search, a doctor job search or just plain online job search is often demanding and frustrating. But not anymore…when you learn to do it the right way. It would all begin with finding the right job openings without difficulty. You will definitely not need job search software, you can be rest assured.
