Canadian employers are actively seeking foreign skilled workers to alleviate labour shortages across industries from coast to coast.Finding work in Canada can be one of the quickest ways to begin your life in Canada.
Your 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 pesidence) through one of the Provincial Nomination Programs, the Canadian Experience Class, or Arranged Employment.
- In most cases, a Canadian employer wishing to hire a foreign worker must first receive government approval before the hiring can take place. This approval comes in the form of a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).

For certain occupations, internationally-trained workers and professionals must have their education and work experience credentials assessed and recognized by federal and provicial/territorial regulatory bodies before they can work in Canada. For many regulated occupations such as engineers, medical doctors, nurses, electricians, plumbers, veterinarians, and physiotherapists, foreign-trained workers may need to obtain additional certification before they can work in their fields. Preparing ahead of time can make the transition to the Canadian workforce much more efficient.
