How to Get a Job Offer From a Canadian Employer

One of the easiest and safest ways to immigrate to Canada is to secure a job offer from a Canadian employer.

This means you’ll be able to work in the country since your arrival. Depending on your contract extension and performed job position, you may also be able to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

How to Search for a Canadian Job Offer

  Verify if you can work with your profession in Canada. Research which job positions you apply to related to your education and work experience.

  Find out if your employer needs a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) or if you can apply for a work permit to a job position that is LMIA exempt.

  Search for offers on Canadian job boards. Some employers may be open to sponsoring workers if their companies are in need of specialized staff.

You could also come to Canada as a visitor and get to know potential employers. Try to contact someone in need of a worker with your profile. They will likely be open to sponsoring you.

If your main goal is to apply for permanent residence, you must have a VALID JOB OFFER that meets the following requirements:

   Full-time contract, longer than 12 months.

  The job must be listed as Skill Type 0 or Skill Level A or B in the National Occupational Classification.

We recommend you always be aware of the following points when searching for job offers from foreign employment agencies:

   False advertisement: Publicity like “Free work permits”, “No experience needed!”, “Faster processing times” is frowned upon. Canadian Government does charge a fee for every application. All work permits require a minimum of one year of experience. Some job positions may even require three to five years of experience.

   Uncertified Consultants: If the firm you contacted is not certified, your applications will not be validated. Choose immigration consultants registered on CICC.

   False information: Being asked to submit false information to obtain a work permit will automatically result in the refusal of a work permit.

   Charging for a job offer: Companies are not allowed to charge a fee for giving you a job offer. This is an illegal action, condemned by Canadian jurisdictions. In some cases, these fraudulent companies will guarantee a job offer without even interviewing you first.

Companies are allowed to charge a fee for the immigration process, but just when they are certified immigration companies.
