Can I find a job in Canada from abroad?

Can I find a job in Canada from abroad?

Canadian employers do not offer work to people outside the country. The only exception would be someone with qualifications that do not exist in Canada, and given that Canada has an exceptionally well-educated and experienced workforce, that is VERY unlikely.

More than half of all Canadians have college degrees.

Additionally, labor regulations REQUIRE an employer to demonstrate that a job cannot be filled by someone in Canada before hiring it abroad.

Since this is an onerous process and since there are many well-educated workers in Canada, this is extremely unlikely to happen.

If you want to come to Canada, you must apply for immigration. If you are accepted, you can come to Canada and look for work.

The Immigration Canada website has all the information you need and describes the process; You do not need to hire an immigration consultant. You can apply yourself.

Immigrate to canada

You must also have enough money to support yourself while you settle in Canada. It can take time to find a job and Canada is an expensive place to live. The following is the REQUIRED amount to immigrate.

That is going to be very difficult, I'm afraid.

My husband and I moved to Canada from the US because I got a job as an engineer there. Not only did I get a Canadian job, they transferred me from my company to their offices in Canada.

Unfortunately, although my husband had an engineering degree and a visa to be in the country, he could not find work anywhere. His only work experience was a couple of internships. He knocked on doors and handed out dozens and dozens of resumes. After a year, we finally moved back to the US so that I could get an engineering job.

The economy is tough right now in both the United States and Canada. It is very difficult to get a job without knowing someone or without having a "ticket".

It would be difficult.

If you were in Canada and your engineering credentials were accepted and you had a permit or visa that allowed you to work, you would have a good chance.

But if you don't have any of that, you are competing against those who do. Then it won't be easy. You will have to convince a company to sponsor you to come.

If I went, I would look at the big Canadian companies, like Bombardier, and find out who to send your resume to. Write a cover letter explaining that you would be willing to come to Canada.

You should also look at the rules to get your engineering degree

You should also consider the rules for obtaining your recognized engineering degree in Canada. Since most aerospace jobs are located in Quebec and Ontario, you have to look at the organizations that license engineers, in Ontario they are Professional Engineers of Ontario (PEO).

It will be virtually impossible.

A company in Canada will have to sponsor you (to get a work permit). This is difficult enough because the company has to prove to the government that you are unique and that they couldn't find anyone else in Canada with your qualifications. Since he's a recent graduate, I'm afraid he's not the only one.

On the other hand, why would a company go through all this sponsorship mess, when every year they have a new round of highly qualified recent graduates, with Canadian citizenship and who in most cases speak native English (and French, B

You do not. There are regulations that make it VERY DIFFICULT, if not impossible, to get a job in Canada when applying from outside the country.

Unless you have world-class experience ... and I'm talking about a recognized and leading expert in your field, in which case you wouldn't be asking this question on Quora ... it's impossible to get a job in Canada from outside of Canada. And so ...

To hire someone from outside of Canada, the employer must obtain a positive Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) showing that no one in Canada can do that job. This is MANDATORY… it is not optional.

Unless you have world-class experience ... and I'm talking about a recognized and leading expert in your field, in which case you wouldn't be asking this question on Quora ... it's impossible to get a job in Canada from outside of Canada. And so ...

To hire someone from outside of Canada, the employer must obtain a positive Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) showing that no one in Canada can do that job. This is MANDATORY… it is not optional.

This regulation gives workers already in Canada priority for available jobs. (It is as if the Canadian government is trying to act in the best interest of Canadians and those already in the country.)

The requirements for an LMIA cost the employer at LEAST three months of time ... and advertising costs that will vary ... because the employer has to widely advertise the position in Canada for one month.

I posted national job ads for a previous employer and that can easily cost thousands of dollars. If the employer receives applications from Canadians, of whom there are 36 million, more than half of whom have college degrees, the employer has no reason to hire outside of the county.

If the employer does not receive candidates, before hiring outside of Canada, the employer must apply for an LMIA from Employment and Social Development Canada. Processing this takes two months. The fee is $ 1,100 Canadian.

The employer then has to wait for the job applicant's (temporary) or PR (permanent) work permit to be approved, which will be a MINIMUM of six months and easily take a year or more.

So we are talking about a delay of at least a year and possibly two more years before the out-of-county worker can even begin work. So for example, if a restaurant needs a cook, it will simply hire someone who is already in Canada and who is legally qualified to work in Canada.

There are many qualified Canadian applicants, those born here and those who have already immigrated to Canada and can legally work in Canada.

All of the above explains why it is so difficult for someone outside of Canada to get a job offer from a Canadian employer. Hiring outside of Canada is so time consuming and expensive that most Canadian employers don't even look at an application outside of the county.

When I was helping with hiring from a previous employer, we simply deleted out-of-country applications without reading; We already had a ton of applications from people already in Canada, so there was no point in even opening out-of-county applicant submissions.

Many companies have their applicant tracking software configured to automatically remove out-of-county applications.

In addition to all the regulatory requirements, Canadian employers do not have the time or resources to attempt to verify references / qualifications from outside the country, especially those in an unfamiliar language. They are also unwilling to hire someone they have never met, as collaborative teamwork is an important part of Canadian workplaces.

Anyone who tells you otherwise, especially if they are asking you for money to find a job in Canada, is probably trying to scam you to get your money.

By the way, if you do not have a valid job offer when you apply to immigrate to Canada, you must have enough money available to stay in Canada while you relocate. The current amount for a single person is $ 12,669 CAD.

I think there is a huge misunderstanding about what "Canadian Experience" means. You may need it and you may not.

Here's the problem ... immigrants come to Canada and apply without realizing two things:
1. They are applying for a job in a very different and potentially much more competitive job market than in their home country; and
2. They still possess the “soft skills” - the work / social / community practices of their home country - as it takes time to integrate and learn Canadian soft skills.

So when they apply for the job, they believe they deserve it and compete against 100 other applicants.

Here's the problem ... immigrants come to Canada and apply without realizing two things:
1. They are applying for a job in a very different and potentially much more competitive job market than in their home country; and
2. They still possess the “soft skills” - the work / social / community practices of their home country - as it takes time to integrate and learn Canadian soft skills.

So when they apply for the job they think they deserve and compete with 100 other applicants, those 'soft' skills are a factor. They may get an interview based on your resume (CV), but the lack of appropriate soft skills is evident in the interview.

Someone else is hired. The immigrant demands to know why. The Canadian employer, who wants to be nice and encouraging, but can't pay someone $ 35 an hour when that person doesn't fit into their team, says, "I'm sorry, but you need more Canadian experience."

Truth be told, that's what the applicant needs: more experience of Canadian culture, perhaps better language, a different approach to teamwork… it will vary from job to job. The key is learning the soft skills. Often times, the bewildered immigrant doesn't even realize the problem because, well, isn't that the way he does things as usual?

No, not in Canada. It is a different culture. It takes time to learn a new culture and how to work within that culture.

Some people get it. They take a job, even a minor job, that will give them work experience in Canada while they continue to assimilate. Some don't get it and go home ... whispering about the "Canadian experience" ... or they stay in Canada, bitter and disappointed. Some jump on social media and shout that Canadians are racist. (In general, we are not.)

Guess which group will eventually prosper in Canada?

That's what "Canadian experience" means. It is not unique to Canada. If I emigrated to India and wanted to work, I would face the barrier of the "Indian experience" because it would not fit well into the work culture and my social skills would not match.

By the way, a group of immigrants who tend to do very well in Canada are the ones who come to school first for a couple of years. They learn Canadian social cues, better language, work style, and all social skills while in school. Then when they graduate, they are more successful applying for jobs in their chosen career.

I hope that helps. Good luck.

No one can help you because no one can "give" a job in Canada to someone outside of Canada at will. Government approval is required to hire a foreign national for a job in Canada.

Jobs in Canada are protected and priority is given to those already living in Canada. The only way an employer can hire a foreigner for a Canadian job is to PROVE through a costly and time-consuming process that no one in Canada can fill that job. That almost never happens because Canada has the best-educated workforce on the planet.

Canada has a very tight and competitive job market. The country was also pushed into recession by COVID-19. It can be difficult to find a job in Canada for people already in the country, as there are no job openings out there. From outside of Canada, it is almost impossible.

Sorry. Most people come to Canada by qualifying to immigrate and then finding work. The immigration instructions are here:

Here are the suggested action steps: —-

* Step 1: Understand about Canada and the Canadian job market;

First of all, it is very important that you research Canada, its provinces and cities on climate, culture, community and travel to prioritize your options for permanent living. Before looking for work, you should assess the job demands and prospects for your specific occupation in Canada.

First of all, it is very important that you research Canada, its provinces and cities on climate, culture, community and travel to prioritize your options for permanent living. Before looking for work, you should assess the job demands and prospects for your specific occupation in Canada.

Canada is a huge country and there are specific regions with higher demand for specific occupations. It is important to find out the provinces and cities where your occupation has the highest demand and the lowest supply.

You must understand the nature of the Canadian job market, ie the open and hidden job market and seasonal demands to develop an effective job search strategy.

You should also connect with labor recruiters or career consultants in your field to learn more about the industry and sector and the region-specific direct and implicit job requirements.

* Step 2: Look for a job from outside (INDIA) Canada: —-

Prepare a detailed job search strategy, as simply posting your resume on job boards may not help.

Create a detailed career plan according to your areas of interest and job or industrial demands.

Research and connect with many relevant companies and individuals in trade and associations.

Review the National Occupational Classification (NOC) with titles, main duties, and job requirements for general job requirements.

Find out the business and licensing requirements in your profession or field.

Check job boards for positions and job requirements thoroughly and compare your resume to the Canadian applicant's resume / profiles available on Linkedin or other Canadian job resources.

Get your credential evaluation from accredited agencies.

Prepare a Canadian resume highlighting your achievements and removing non-relevant personal data.

Prepare your personal marketing plan, which includes networking, social media marketing, cold calling, and getting referrals.

* Step 3: Secure a genuine job offer: -

This is a critical step, if you have generated interest for Canadian employers and there is a chance of getting an offer.

The employer may have to make sure that they cannot find a Canadian and that proper steps have been taken for recruitment before making an offer.

In this document, your research for the Canadian labor market will be helpful only if you have applied for the occupations with the highest demand and lowest supply.

If the employer has been unable to find a suitable candidate for a period of time, your application may create a win-win situation.

If the employer still has some apprehensions, your exceptional language skills, social skills, and connections with local contacts can help you show confidence and a quick transition in Canada.

Here, persistence and regular contact with the employer will help you show your keen interest in.

You can apply for a work or immigration permit as soon as you receive a job offer.

P.S; (sharing Canadian immigration news)

With the world economy falling by the day and the economic crisis increasing, Canada's youth are facing a serious unemployment problem. According to a national survey, the unemployment rate has increased by 7.2%, which is cause for concern. The main cause is Indian immigrants in Canada. On the one hand, when young people from Canada are well qualified for a job, agencies prefer to hire Indian immigrants in Canada. In the long term, this will increase the problems of youth, which is not acceptable at all.

How does the employment of Indian immigrants in Canada make young people suffer?

The current job structure is degrading the value of local youth. By providing employment to Indian immigrants, it affects not only the youth but also the family. They have spent a great fortune to secure the future of their son.

The government should create more jobs for unemployed youth or should stop employing Indian immigrants in Canada. They (the government) should take an example from other countries like the US that give preference to their citizens over immigrants, which is technically correct.

If you possess high-level skills and unique experience, you may receive a job offer and be sponsored by your prospective Canadian employer for a work visa or PR visa. However, that would be a remote event and you should prepare for your job search on your own.

Many people who immigrate to Canada struggle to get a job. The main reasons are:

  • Lack of Canadian experience, as a result, Canadian employers are hesitant to employ an unknown foreign employee.
  • On the part of the employees, lack of good communication skills, English language, foreign accent and failure

If you possess high-level skills and unique experience, you may receive a job offer and be sponsored by your prospective Canadian employer for a work visa or PR visa. However, that would be a remote event and you should prepare for your job search on your own.

Many people who immigrate to Canada struggle to get a job. The main reasons are:

  • Lack of Canadian experience, as a result, Canadian employers are hesitant to employ an unknown foreign employee.
  • On the part of the employees, lack of good communication skills, English language, foreign accent and failure to present their skills with good communication skills.
  • The fear of a foreign country and the fear of remaining unemployed for a long time, etc.

I suggest you prepare an effective, clear and concise resume. Sometimes the resume may need to change slightly to suit a particular job or highlight something important to the requirements being considered. However, you need to avoid any hype or exaggeration. Most Canadian employers are smart enough to find the exaggerated claims of applicants.

Once the resume is complete, read and reread and think about whether you will hire the person who wrote the resume. You can show your resume to some of your friends and let them make some constructive suggestions.

Get started looking for job prospects in Canada; This can be done through some of your friends who have already emigrated and settled in Canada. You can search for jobs in professional magazines and newspapers if you have access to them online. You can find Canadian recruiters who specialize in IT recruiting. You may want to submit your resume with a cover letter expressing your interest in the jobs and your likely date of landing in Canada. If you can stay with a friend, you can give their address and phone number as a temporary contact.

Remember that due to the reasons stated above, the 95% chance is that you will have to leave for Canada without any job offer. That's fine and most people have entered Canada like this.

Your actual job search should begin after landing in Canada. Wherever you want to go in Canada, I'll leave it to you. Remember that Canada is a frozen country and summer is very short. Find out what kind of clothes you and your family members should bring to Canada. I suggest that some of the clothes such as coats etc. are better bought in Canada.

I suggest you visit the Canadian immigration website below:

www.cic.gc.ca

Get complete information on how to migrate to Canada.

The Canadian migration system is point-based and points are assigned to your age, marital status, educational qualifications, experience, command of the English and / or French language, etc. The most important element is that your proposed job must be listed on SOL (List of Qualified Occupations). Your skills and qualifications will be accredited by Canadian authorities and you must meet the minimum requirements.

There are two types of migration; one is normal and the other is called Express Entry, which needs a certain minimum number of points to be scored. Once you decide which scheme you want to apply, start preparing your application. You must complete your application with all the required information and attachments. Otherwise, your application will be delayed due to further communication with the Canadian High Commission.

If you are married and have children, it is best to add them as your dependents; otherwise taking them to Canada later will take a long time to get your visa.

Finally, when the visa is issued, the High Commission of Canada provides information on how to live and settle in Canada; If you don't get the information, you can look it up on their website.

Expect there to be some delay in getting a job, be prepared to be out of work for some time, carry enough money to survive. Also remember that many highly skilled people like engineers, IT professionals, dentists, doctors are forced to take menial jobs like taxi drivers, supermarket jobs, and even cleaning jobs; it's okay, since it is a dignity of work and many have to go through that.

Finally, I wish you good luck.

Thanks for the A2A.

So here's the deal.
I will assume you have a PR or are testing Canadian waters before applying for one or your application is already in progress.
A couple of ways to find a job in Canada if you are in the US.

1) Network
Find people you know in Canada. Friends, friends of friends, friends of friends of friends, etc. Family is also important. So don't feel uncomfortable if you have to approach that fourth cousin you hardly know, or your friend, or your friend's friend. You will hear a lot about "Canadian Experience", it is true. There are many job opportunities in Canada.

There are many job opportunities in Canada, but a recruiter will prefer someone local. That's where your contacts come into play.

2) Request a transfer to your current organization.
If you are already working with a company that has business interests in Canada, they may be willing to transfer it. This is the fastest and easiest way to get a job here. Once you have enough "Canadian Experience", you can always find something else.

3) Consultants
There are a ton of them, especially if you're in the tech space. Reassure them that you are willing to cross the border for F2F interviews if necessary. Once you have a few interviews scheduled, take a couple of days off and meet with them. I know it is difficult, but hey, what you are trying to achieve is not an easy task.

Good luck with your search!

Do you want to come to Canada or extend your stay?

It takes between one and five years to obtain a visa that costs around CAD 2,000 per person.

Short answer: you can't.

Long answer:

  • You can, but only if you are a superspecialist in your area of ​​expertise

    and
  • AFTER the job offer has been advertised across Canada

    and
  • several applicants have been interviewed

    and
  • NOBODY in Canada could do that job

The company may then offer you a job, on the condition that you obtain a limited-time work permit to do that job in Canada. If you get that, you don't have a path to stay and you can't apply to immigrate based on that job. It will cost the company thousands of dollars and will take many months to achieve. YOU must be really good at it.
