The Canadian government has funded special employment programs for soon-to-be immigrants that help you find a job in Canada before you leave your home country.
CanPrep is a free specialized employment program designed for internationally trained individuals relocating to Canada in the next two to 12 months. Offered completely online, you start preparing for employment before arriving in Canada. You’ll learn how to conduct a job search in Canada, participate in online mentoring, learn how to be successful in the Canadian workplace, gain understanding of your industry or sector in Canada, connect with employers and apply for jobs.
Many program graduates find jobs in their new province before their date of arrival in Canada.
