Finding employment in Canada is
an integral part of the Skilled Worker program and is of
great importance to most applicants. Depending on your
occupation you may be able to secure rewarding
employment opportunities in Canada. This is particularly
true in sectors such as: information technology, applied
technology, the sciences, finance and engineering.
Opportunities exist for those who are determined and who
do not shy away from hard work and perseverance.
Although becoming familiar with the
Canadian job market is important and encouraged, it is
not necessary for you to have an official job offer from
a prospective Canadian employer in order for you to be
granted a Permanent Residence in Canada visa. In fact,
the majority of applicants receive Permanent Residence
visas without having received formal job offers. Whether
or not you obtain a formal job offer prior to your
immigrating to Canada, your efforts in familiarizing
yourself with the Canadian labour market, specifically
as it relates to your intended occupation in Canada,
will impress the visa officer studying your application.
This is because the overriding goal of the new selection
system is to select skilled workers who will make the
greatest contribution to the Canadian labour market and
have the best opportunities for economic establishment.
Researching and knowing the labour market even before
you immigrate will not only show the visa officer that
you are motivated but will also increase your chances of
finding a suitable job upon your arrival in Canada.
