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 Canadian employer’s job offer.

It means that you will be able to live in Canada and start working from day one until your contract’s expiration. Then, depending on how long you worked in Canada and the job position you performed, you may have the option of applying for the Canadian permanent residence.

  1. First, you need to research to verify if you can work with your profession in Canada. For example, if you are an engineer, what job positions can you apply related to your education and work experience?
  2. Find out if your employer needs an LMIA (Labour Market Impact Assessment) or if you can apply for a work permit to a job position that is LMIA exempt, here you have a list of LMIA exempt positions.

If so, you can start looking at Canadian job boards. Some employers may be open to sponsor workers and give it a try for the most obvious ways.

Another option is to go in person to Canada as a visitor and get to know potential employers. Talk to them and try to contact someone in need of a worker with your profile. They will likely be open to sponsoring you. Remember, for you to obtain a Work Permit, your employer must apply for an LMIA first.

It’s important to understand that 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 2016 National Occupational Classification.

Do you already have a job offer?

If so, contact us and we will be glad to help you with the immigration process.

We recommend you always check the following points before hiring a foreign employment agency:

-False advertisement such as “Free work permits, no experience needed!” is frowned upon. The government of Canada does charge a fee for every application, and all the work permits require a minimum of one year of experience. Some job positions may even require three to five years of experience. So be aware of false advertisement.

-Applications handled by uncertified ICCRC are not validated. Choose an immigration firm that is registered on ICCRC.

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

-Faster processing times.

-Search for reviews.

-Charging for a job offer. Companies are not allowed to charge a fee for giving you a job offer is illegal 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, they are the only ones authorized to charge for immigration services.

Don’t let your dreams of living in Canada overwhelm you. Don’t ignore these scamming warnings and prevent them from falling on a fraudulent job offer.

If you have doubts about the truthfulness of your job offer, don’t hesitate to contact us.
