Canadian Employment Overview

The top reason to emigrate to Canada

It's not a surprise that the most frequently cited reason our clients choose to go to Canada is career advancement.

Canada is an excellent choice for jobs, and for career opportunities. 
 
Canada has a chronic shortage of skilled workers, across all sectors of the economy, which has only intensified with the grey-ing of their working population.  In recent years, approximately 250,000 skilled jobs remain unfilled in any given year, although some say this figure is actually much higher.

Which comes first: job or work permit?

Getting a job in Canada can help you secure permanent residency, that's true.
 
However, casual job offers aside, it is illegal for Canadian employers to hire undocumented foreign nationals, without first obtaining permission from the federal government. 
 
The practical result is that most job seekers will acquire the legal right to work as a means to secure a job -- and not the other way around. Securing permanent residency or a work permit is without question the best means you have to increase your chances of getting a job in Canada. 
 

Fair enough, but how?

We assist our clients with every element of the skilled worker emigration process.  The permanent residency application involves a competitve process. We can help you do that right, well before you are eligible to entertain job offers.
 
If you have a university degree and work experience, or at least two years of post-secondary education in a trade, you maybe eligible to live and work in Canada.  
 
The first step on the way to a Canadian job is for us to complete your skills assessment.  Once completed we will have confirmed you pass the mark of eligibility to submit your "Express Entry Expression of Interest".  
 
Once you are in the applicant pool you, will be competing with other applicants from across the globe -- both among those that match your skill set, and others in entirely unrelated occupations.  This is why it is vital that your application is presented in the best possible way in order to stand out from the crowd. 
 
It is also why you should be skeptical about any proposal to put your application into the pool in a matter of days. By contrast, we work to ensure your application is in the strongest position possible prior to submission.
 
Once you are in the pool you have two options: The first is to do nothing and wait for a Canadian employer or province to approach you with an offer.
 
The second option, and the one we recommend, is to approach the challenge as you would any job search, and to contact employers who are looking for your skills and expertise.
 
Our UK team and Canadian colleagues coordinate to promote our clients' best interests, and once you have your visa, we can introduce you to relevant Canadian employers and recruitment agents. 

Can you guarantee I will secure a job?

No. We never guarantee a job for every applicant, and you shouldn't believe us if we did.  But in asking about jobs, it is important to keep in mind that the skilled worker route is not there to help you get to Canada. 
 
On the contrary, it exists to help the Canadian economy, by helping Canadian employers fill jobs they could not otherwise fill from the local labour base, and to reinforce those parts of the Canadian economy that have been targeted for growth.  After all, poaching skills from abroad is far more cost-effective than growing those skills from the local population, and the Canadian government knows it. 
 
But Canadians also know there is a high demand for Canadian passports, and the need to set high standards, and a challenging path, for any given individual who wishes to avail themselves of that opportunity.
 
It is not for us to say whether you will get a job in Canada. We are not recruiters, and as with any job search, much will be down to you. But in many ways, the jobs are the easy part. The opportunity here is to ensure you give yourself the best chance of securing the visa to unlock those opportunities. 

Canada = job opportunities.

To get a job, you must pass the eligibility criteria, your skills must be in demand, and your references must stand on their own merits. 
 
What we can do is prepare your case to demonstrate that your education, skills and experience qualify you to meet the standards required to emigrate to Canada, and moreover, that you are a stand-out among your professional peers. That job done, your permanent residency visa will open the doors to whatever opportunities may await you in Canada.
