Job Search in Canada

Canada’s leading industries are looking for skilled immigrants like you to fill urgent skills gaps. This is the place to take the first step and start applying for your next big career opportunity in Canada. You can search for Canadian employers by industry to find a suitable job that matches your skills and qualifications using Canadian job sites like: Job Boom, Monster, Job Bank etc. or search for job vacancies using ICS’s job search services.

Finding work in Canada can be one of the fastest ways to begin your life in Canada.

Work in Canada Options
It all starts with a job offer from a Canadian employer.

  • With a full-time permanent job offer, you may qualify for Arranged Employment under the Federal Skilled Worker program or for a Skilled Worker category of one of the Provincial Nomination Programs (PNP). Both of these options will entitle you to fast-track Canadian Immigration (Permanent Residency).
  • If you have an offer of temporary employment, you may be entitled to a Canada Temporary Work Permit. With a Work Permit, you could be in Canada in a matter of weeks to months. Many foreign skilled workers who come to Canada on Work Permits can eventually qualify for fast-track Canadian Immigration (Permanent Residency) through one of the Provincial Nomination Programs, the Canadian Experience Class, or Arranged Employment.
