I believe that the Gulf country will be the best choice for job opportunity in civil engineering field in 2020 session, also in India.

Since the information that can be gleaned from your question is limited, I will assume that you are asking about career opportunities as a civil engineer who wish to migrate to any of these countries.

Although you have been qualified by both immigrations as a civil engineer, you still need to have your qualifications evaluated by the governing bodies in that field to be recognized and accredited.

Employment statistics

Australia

As visualized in the charts below, civil engineering jobs and engineering jobs have been steadily increasing in vacancy trends over the past two years.

Civil engineering occupations have driven most of the growth in general engineering vacancies over the past 12 months, as the largest occupation, and this is driven by growth in New South Wales and Victoria. Civil engineering vacancies consistently record the highest number of all engineering vacancies with 2,216 vacancies recorded in September 2017. This represents an increase from the 1,685 recorded in January 2017, and much more than the 1,352 recorded in September 2015 .

Canada

This might interest you in terms of Canada's 2025 Projections regarding engineering employment, growing demand, and the importance of different engineering occupations to the future plan of the country: https://engineerscanada.ca/sites/default/files / Labor-Market -2015-e.pdf

In its 2015 Labor Market Report, it states that:

Civil Engineers The forecast for civil engineers is an average of 2,500 jobs per year for the next five years. The growth of industries that employ civil engineers will generate about 1,000 of these job openings each year. Another 1,500 of these vacancies will be related to the replacement of retired workers given the high average age of civil engineers (up to 50 years in British Columbia). The total job openings for civil engineers will drop over the last five forecast years (2020-2025) to around 1,800 a year. This is mainly due to the decrease in demand for civil engineers by industry.

Canadian universities award more than 2,700 civil engineering degrees each year. It is estimated that there will be around 1,300 new entrants to the occupation annually over the five-year period. It is expected that there will be some mobility between provinces. Specifically, civil engineers will leave Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec to fill vacancies in British Columbia and Alberta. The weighted labor market rigidity ranking shows some persistent rigidity in both British Columbia and Manitoba over the next few years. The international immigration requirements for civil engineers for the next five years will be very high, more than 800 a year.
