If the Canadian labor market is down and it is difficult for an immigrant to find a job because the Canadian government does not recognize their work experience and qualifications, then why are they encouraging immigration?

The Canadian government is not in charge of the human resources of Canadian companies.

The only thing the Canadian government cares about is increasing the number of immigrants and it believes that a skills-based immigration scheme works better than a lottery-based scheme.

The immigration plan is to avoid the impact of an aging population and a low date of birth.

But the system is flawed because Canada says to come out and do public relations without telling new Canadians that in many cases their credentials and work experience will not help them with Canadian employers.

The Canadian government is not in charge of the human resources of Canadian companies.

The only thing the Canadian government cares about is increasing the number of immigrants and it believes that a skills-based immigration scheme works better than a lottery-based scheme.

The immigration plan is to avoid the impact of an aging population and a low date of birth.

But the system is flawed because Canada says to come out and do public relations without telling new Canadians that in many cases their credentials and work experience will not help them with Canadian employers.

New Canadians are successful in certain job sectors like IT, but it is true that many professionals are unable to work because the professional licensing authorities at the provincial level have standards that must be met before someone can work.

All you have to do is look at the questions on Quora to see that many people who want to immigrate to Canada have realized that if they study in Canada and then get a graduate study permit, they can work in Canada for several years and translating that into PR and jobs like a Canadian degree and Canadian work experience gives them a better CRS score.

They don't even care what and where they study. It is about which is the cheapest educational program in which they can be accepted.

Do you know who the real beneficiaries of the Canadian immigration plan are?

The children of people who receive PR. They will be born in Canada, go to school here, and compete successfully for jobs.

There are many Canadians with a university education who also cannot find work because they have made the wrong choice in what they chose to study.

There are also no guaranteed jobs for all Canadians.

Unfortunately, it is not a perfect world.

Not many Canadians search the entire world and want to emigrate because things are better elsewhere.

But people from all over the world want to migrate from where they live to have a chance at a better life.

That is the driver.

If life was good, they would not leave home for a new country. People who do well in their homeland do not leave.

Both groups of my grandparents immigrated to Canada. Uneducated and illiterate. Farmers. She earned a basic living to improve the lives of her children and her children's children. My father and his brothers did not finish high school. I was the first generation to graduate from high school and go to college.

But when I look around, I see evidence of successful new Canadians. The guy that pumps my septic tank is from Ireland. He makes a ton of money doing shitty work. Septic tank work was not what I went to school for before emigrating. You know what, if one of my kids were in a position to choose college or the workforce, I'd tell them to consider that job. They wouldn't and they'd be missing out on making a good life doing that job because he makes $ 100,000 + pumping shit.

The plumbers, pipe fitters, and HVAC guys who installed my air conditioner, new furnace, water softener, and reverse osmosis were from the Philippines. They are doing well. I tried to get my son-in-law to follow one of these trades, but he chose soldering, which was one of the dumbest decisions he could have made because the bottom had fallen off the oil patch. There is so much need for welders compared to other trades. He chose poorly when he could have chosen well. He ignored my advice that showed him successful new Canadians in the trades.

The spokesperson for the provincial vehicle insurance company is from Nigeria, so forgive me when I discuss the argument that no employer is hiring new Canadians. In fact, the claims adjuster who processed my insurance claim when I was hit and run was also from Africa.

Therefore, not all new Canadians are working as convenience store clerks and taxi drivers.

What else can you learn from the previous example? Canada is more than Toronto.

Someone in their response referred to driving a truck as an unpleasant job. Yes, many Canadians and new Canadians would turn down that job, but cut their noses to screw up their faces. $ 70,000 per year with a high school education is not negligible.

I am not minimizing the problem of new Canadians struggling to find meaningful employment.

I recognize that there is a problem with many employers discarding the Canadian line of experience.

But if new Canadians only believe what Canadian immigration says or doesn't say and don't do their own research on the reality of job opportunities in Canada, then they are their own worst enemy.

The above answers are accurate. I will add them.

You must remember that business cycles occur over quarters, years, or periods of four to five years, perhaps twenty-year time frames. Both personal and bureaucratic immigration decisions and waiting time also occur over quarters, years, or multi-year periods. Those are completely independent cycles. Unable to sync.

Deciding to emigrate to Canada during a period of inactivity or period of rise is not really relevant. You are making a long-term life decision.

Deciding to emigrate to Canada during a period of inactivity or period of rise is not really relevant. You are making a long-term life decision.

Your new energy, your new desire to win and grow and make your way? That is the fuel of the Canadian economy. Canadians DO work hard, they want to succeed on their own, but nothing inspires productivity and achievement like friendly competition and new enthusiasm, new skills, new resources, and new ideas.

If you are in the business category, your cash contribution means instant economic growth for the economy. And if you are an informed entrepreneur, you know that growth is growth for everyone. Including yourself, and you are offered the opportunity to be perfectly positioned to grow your wealth and resources.

Many of those who come to Canada as skilled workers are disappointed that there are no golden streets, no red carpet, and no $ 200,000 per year work for them in Canada. The experience is that it takes time to find your place in Canada. Immigrants, new Canadians, and longtime Canadians compete for positions. My advice is: be patient, work as smart and hard as you can.

People hire for qualifications and experience, but they also hire for knowledge and personal relationships. That is true all over the world, including Canada. It's not nepotism exactly, it's a surefire way to hire people when you have to deal with thousands of resumes that may or may not be accurate or true. My advice is to take the best job you can find in your industry and meet people with your specific specialization. After they get to know you and understand how you work, opportunities will open up.

It almost always takes at least two years, maybe five or more years before immigration pays off. The cost of getting started, anywhere, is high.

You are making a decision for life, not a quick trade in the stock market. Build a life in Canada. You will be very satisfied with the results. Don't make benefit decisions in months or a year, not even in two or five years. Make decisions that benefit you for life.

Unless you work for the federal government, the government of Canada has no authority to recognize or not recognize your qualifications. It is not the government, it is the hiring manager who needs to be convinced and company policies. In Canada, no hiring manager would ever seek government approval.

For the few professions that are regulated in Canada (nurse, for example), you will likely need to take an exam to get the Canadian qualification diploma, but even here you can deal with provincial, not federal, regulators. The provinces have no say in immigration policy (well, Quebec is spe

The University of Toronto had a comparative education service in the early 1990s, maybe it's still there. You gave them your list of college courses and a summary of what they teach, and they gave you a document that said "the level of education is comparable to the XXX level of us." I needed that comparative service once, when I was working for the Ontario government for a short time in 1995, but absolutely no one else was interested in it.

But if any immigrant thought it was easy, at least they were naive. Immigration is not easy. Sometimes it is more difficult for the immigrant than it would have been without him. It's probably a fight of at least 10 years, and that's if you're lucky. There are no rivers of milk and honey in Canada, there is no fast track to riches or an easy life. Without a support network, an immigrant faces an uphill climb on a very steep incline. With a support network (friends, family) it is not easier, just less difficult. And Canada is one of the friendliest countries for immigrants, if not THE friendliest.

Imagine this-

You are a common man in a developed country. You were born and raised there and have a good stable job with a really nice employer and colleagues from different cultures. You know that many people emigrate to your country every year. He is open to them and understands their government and its policies. You like meeting new people with diverse cultures and you are happy with life.

Now imagine that you are the employer. It is open to hiring people with relevant experience, in some cases also new, and it is open to different people. Experience and knowledge is what matters to you.

Imagine this-

You are a common man in a developed country. You were born and raised there and have a good stable job with a really nice employer and colleagues from different cultures. You know that many people emigrate to your country every year. He is open to them and understands their government and its policies. You like meeting new people with diverse cultures and you are happy with life.

Now imagine that you are the employer. It is open to hiring people with relevant experience, in some cases also new, and it is open to different people. Experience and knowledge is what matters to you regardless of your culture. Now you get a lot of resumes every day and you want to hire someone with relevant experience in a particular profile, let's say Accounting. Now you get 3 different CVs and you only have to shortlist one.

The first CV is from a person with a diploma from a local university in Accounting and 2 years of relevant experience in the same profile in their country. They are very familiar with the country's accounting standards and have hands-on experience with the software your company uses and have worked under similar working conditions to your company.

The second is from a person with an international accounting degree with 6 years of accounting work experience but in a different country. They have worked on different accounting standards and have no experience in the software you use.

The third has 3 years of work experience and is again from another country and has completed a degree in accounting and has carried out some subcontracted projects from his country in the accounting standards used by his country and has used software similar to those of his company.

Who will you shortlist? If I have a choice, I will shortlist people 1 and 3 and make a decision after carefully interviewing them both.

Logic:

It is usually a business requirement to move towards the person in whom the company has to invest the least. You may also feel that the person with 6 years of experience will expect a higher position than what is offered.

Usually we tend to look at the face value of the situation rather than trying to understand what the real scenario behind it is.

When people say that work experience and degree are not recognized in Canada, it is not really true because those degrees and experience gave you the PR in the first place.

Please understand that you are migrating to a new country with rules, guidelines, experience, etc. totally different and a company looking for experienced people will always look for the "relevant" experience and not just any experience that relates to a certain field.

It is never the people who do not recognize you or do not love you, it is the business that may or may not accept your experience depending on the situation.

Whenever I get messages about Canadian PR, I always want to tell people to first have the experience that may be globally acceptable and not just a local experience. If a person has met Indian GAAP and Canada wants to have experience with IFRS, how and why would they hire him? Of course they won't and trust me if you were the employer, even you wouldn't because it is NOT a business necessity.

And I really don't understand what people mean when they say "the job market is falling", so I wouldn't answer that.

In short, Canada is looking for skilled workers who have the relevant experience and / or are ready to start from scratch and have the money and patience to survive the struggle. They only allow you to enter the country if you have sufficient funds. If you want to study, you definitely need more than the bare minimum.

If you think you have only local experience and no global experience, I highly recommend that you do not move until you have the appropriate experience. You can't just land in a country and say that they won't give me a job because I'm an immigrant. Build your profile first. Get the right experience. Getting PR is the first step, the real journey is after landing here.

I repeat, it is not the people, it is the business requirement that decides who gets the job.

Don't be demotivated. In my 4 months of living here, I have not come across a single person who has gone hungry in this country. It takes time, patience, and hard work, but you get it.

This question has to do with how our monetary system works in a democratic nation. I would like you to inform me if I am wrong, but all countries that practice some kind of democracy and trade freedoms expect the economy to grow. And this idea of ​​growth is relatively new.

If we take economic manipulation out of the equation as seen in the Federal Reserve System of the United States and other countries, we see that in the last 150 years or so, people expect growth. This will drive inflation if the country's reserves don't grow. We are talking about FIAT money here.

For a national company to grow, its market must grow. Offer and demand. For that to happen, the population must grow. If the birth rate drops to 2 or less per couple, we have a problem.

Of all the countries in the world that are experiencing zero or worse population growth, the countries that have growth opportunities that require stable government and natural resource wealth (minerals, mining, timber, oil, energy, etc.) are limited a few: Australia, Canada, the United States (up to a point).

Canada wants people who have the skills and resources to continue this growth. You don't need a dishwasher as much as engineers. See what I mean?

Countries that cannot attract immigration can resort to refugee quotas. This has happened with Germany, which is now desperate. However, the cream of the crop turns dangerous and the sudden change in the population profile can cause stress (Donald Trump's Muslim gang and Quebec's law on face coverings).

The Canadian government recognized your experience and qualifications or you would not have been able to come to Canada in most cases.

However, the government does not offer him a job. You have to get it yourself. Canadian employers cannot be forced to accept you as a worker. The big problem is that Canadian companies need a worker to fit in well socially in the organization and that requires Canadian life experience. Since settlers first came to Canada hundreds of years ago, it has been the norm for new immigrants to have to work survival jobs for 5 to 10 years to get enough.

However, the government does not offer him a job. You have to get it yourself. Canadian employers cannot be forced to accept you as a worker. The big problem is that Canadian companies need a worker to fit in well socially in the organization and that requires Canadian life experience. Since settlers first came to Canada hundreds of years ago, it has been the norm for new immigrants to have to work survival jobs for 5 to 10 years to gain enough life experience to move up. This is the norm. A new immigrant cannot expect to move to a high-level position as soon as he arrives. They have rarely been able to do so.

In the past 20 years alone, in the fields of computer science, a good number of people have been able to achieve faster success. Don't think for a minute that this applies to all fields. It is a myth that there are many unfilled high paying jobs in Canada in all fields.

All the government gives you is the opportunity to compete with the local population. Whereas more than 50% of Canadians have a hunger education degree. Considering that most jobs, employers require that you also be a good cultural fit, this means that you will be working in lower level jobs.

Remember that Canada is a capitalist country and the ultimate trust is not from the government. It is with employers. If you still don't fit culturally into the Canadian workplace, it will take time to become one.

You have this bad. You get public relations because the Canadian government recognized your qualifications and experience. You can't get a job because Canadian private sector employers don't recognize you.

You seem to have the wrong idea that the Canadian government determines whether you get a job. The government has no say in that.

All you get when you are admitted to Canada is the opportunity to compete for work with Canadians.

The companies that have to distribute the money are much more selective than a civil service immigration worker.

It is a myth that there are many unfilled high paying jobs in all fields of work in Canada.

Another myth is that just because a developing country title has the same title as a Canadian title, it has the same workplace value to the people who will actually pay you. When Canadian employers have no idea how good their developing country's school can be. They know that there are good schools but also many bad ones and they don't know which are which.

Increase.

Canada wants to grow and birth rates are low.

Canada encourages immigration because it only has advantages for the country, you could say that it is a utilitarian mentality. Canada allows them to live in the country, but Canada makes it clear that they are alone, with no real support.

The only immigrants that Canada accepts are people with a college degree, fairly young, healthy, with savings, etc. So they bring money into Canada, but most likely not a burden or a crime, no matter how good or bad they do.

In short, if there are not enough jobs for immigrants in Canada, is it the immigrant who has a p

In short, if there are not enough jobs for immigrants in Canada, it is the immigrant who has a problem, not Canada.

Because the country's business model is based on immigration. It is difficult for a new immigrant to find work in any first world nation. You have to work your way up the ladder of success, which means working odd jobs or getting the education and skills you need to pursue a career.

Encouraging immigration means increasing GDP. Immigrants will work, pay taxes, spend money. This is how the country's economy works. Canada is a huge place and the low birth rate doesn't help. Canada needs more people.

The Canadian government has nothing to do with the recognition of your work experience and qualifications.

They are encouraging immigration to invite highly qualified professionals from around the world to improve living conditions in Canada. They are giving us a choice, not an obligation.
