The solution to successful immigration is finding a job in Canada. Discovering the right job in Canada is important if you are in the process of getting a work visa or even if you are just thinking about immigration to Canada.
Prospective immigrants are encouraged to research their job opportunities as those immigrants who find work in their chosen fields are usually well prepared before they come to Canada.
The Benefits of obtaining a valid Canadian job offer include:
- Extra points under the Federal Skilled Worker / Professional Category of Canadian Immigration.
- A critical factor for qualification under the Provincial Nomination Program (PNP) of various provinces.
- A validated job offer by the PNP fast tracks your application for Permanent Residence.
- Processing of your application for a Canada Immigration Permanent Resident Visa takes precedence.
- Speedy access to Canada on a Work Permit during the processing of your Canadian Immigration application.
- Employment ahead of you so that you can settle and integrate into your new home as soon as you land in Canada.
Recognition of Foreign Professional Qualifications:
Individuals who want to come to Canada to settle permanently and wish to enter the labor force should identify the value of the education, training and experience they have acquired in their home country.
The qualifications they have need to be reviewed in order to obtain assessment and recognition of their qualifications at the appropriate provincial, territorial or federal level.
The professional and trade certifying bodies of each province assess applications for certification on the education and work experience of the applicant earned outside Canada. This depends on whether one wishes to enter an occupation or pursue further studies, or whether their chosen occupation is regulated or non-regulated and the province in which they intend to settle.
If an Occupation is regulated, the appropriate provincial or territorial body will determine the recognition of qualifications whereas for the non-regulated occupation, recognition is normally at the discretion of the employer.
