Worldwide Medical Insurance News: How do I find work in Canada?

After taking out relocating abroad to Canada, people may then need to seek employment in the nation.

An ExpatFocus.com spokeswoman suggested that finding work can be easier in some of the more remote provinces and destinations than in the most populous places.

Often, these locations try to incentivise workers to move to them because of the limited number of people who live there, she added.

Despite this, expatriates generally move to the larger cities, such as Vancouver, Calgary, Montreal and Toronto.

She said a number of professions will require all staff members to have attained Canadian licences, as some qualifications are not considered to be "directly-transferrable".

International students who are taking part in PhD programmes or those who have an offer of employment may be able to move to Canada through a Federal Skilled Worker Programme, she explained.

However, the spokeswoman said that a variety of criteria have to be met before a person can do so, with authorities examining factors including adaptability, language abilities, age, work experience and education.

Furthermore, people will also have to demonstrate that they are financially equipped to support themselves and any dependent parties after they arrive, she added.

The expert recommended that expatriates use Service Canada to look for any vacant positions in their preferred field.

This scheme gives newcomers programmes and services throughout the nation that can help them find the right role, the representative noted.

She said that temporary work agencies and multicultural facilities will also be able to provide assistance, while jobs can also be listed in online websites or in newspapers.

A Social Insurance [Number] Card must also be applied for by all new immigrants, the expert declared, stating this should allow them to access benefits and government programmes.

Other documentation she said people must request on arrival include the Permanent Residency Card and the Health Care Card.

Although Canada became a self-governing dominion over 1867, it has still kept some of its historic ties to the British Crown and is part of the Commonwealth of Nations.
