How to Find Jobs in Canada

Seeking Canadian Employment
If you are issued a Canadian Permanent Resident Visa, you will have a legal right to live, work and study long-term in Canada. Among some of the most important decisions you will need to make as a new Canadian permanent resident include where to live and work in Canada. Depending on which Canadian visa type you are approved for by Canada's government, that choice may be made for you in advance. For example, if you are approved for a work visa to Canada under the Provincial Nominee Program, you will need to find employment in a particular Canadian province that needs your skills. In other cases, however, you may be approved for a work visa to Canada for a skill that is needed across Canada and so you will have to decide where to apply for jobs in Canada, which province or city you prefer to live in, etc.

Ideally, you may be able to obtain a qualifying offer of Canadian employment before you actually immigrate to Canada so that you will already know where you will live and work in Canada, how much money you will earn, etc. Some methods that many people use to look for jobs in Canada include:
  • using online job search engines (Canada's Job Bank is an excellent resource)
  • checking Canadian job openings posted on news websites for various cities in Canada
  • applying for a job in Canada on a company‚Äôs website
  • sending a resume/CV to a business via email
  • utilizing LinkedIn or other social media to network for jobs in Canada
  • networking with family, friends or others who may know of a Canadian job opening
  • getting help from Canadian government employment agencies
  • receiving assistance from private organizations that help people find jobs in Canada, Like Think Canada
