Hai I'm bhramara.
I have done MSc in biochemistry in 2010.
I don't have any work experience. After my studies I got married and moved to USA with my husband.
Now my husband is trying for Canada PR (we already had visa, but not yet moved to canada).

I wanted to study/work once my hubby got PR.

My questions:-

What can I do with my Msc.Biochemistry degree in Canada? (Jobs related to this field)

What are the career opportunities for biochemistry biotechnology graduates/ Post Graduates in Canada (Toronto)?

Am I eligible to work as
- pharmasist in a pharmacy
- lab technician
- clinical research field
- in Food factories (QC)
- preschool teacher???

If I have to do any course there then what are those courses for above asked work fields?
Diploma/ adv Diploma???
Collage/ University?.. which one is best( certificate value and course fee)

First, it depends on if your degree is recongized in Canada.

Then I know the following needs special permit and qualification, so you won't qualify:
- pharmasist in a pharmacy https://www.pharmacists.ca/pharmacy-in-canada/becoming-a-pharmacist-in-canada/
In order to become a licensed pharmacist in Canada, you need:
  1. A bachelor's or doctor of pharmacy degree from one of 10 Canadian universities
  2. To complete a national board examination through the Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada (PEBC) (except Québec)
  3. Practical experience through an apprenticeship/internship program
  4. Fluency in English or French

- preschool or any school teacher (teaching degree, certificate, early childhood education certificate...etc)

Yes those are options your lack of work experience and your degree being 10 years old will be a challenge. Tough time to find employment. Maybe you can find an internship to get some experience aNd Canadian experience. Jobs available will depend on where you are moving.

Wouldn’t really recommend going back to pharmacy school. There are a surplus of pharmacists in Canada and salaries have slowly going down for a decade for in many regions for community pharmacist.

Hi,
You have good education skills and language proficiency, so you should target initially administrative/support function jobs.

Reach out to http://www.costi.org/ and orgs similar to https://www.ncpeel.ca/about.html as they provide some good newcomer support. training and facilitate placements, They are promoted by Provincial /Federal government grants, so makes sense to reach out and get the initial (voluntary) placement support for newcomers.

The capable ones manage to convert those initial voluntary placements to successful paid jobs. I am sure you will be successful in Canada.

All the best!

She hasn’t specified where she is moving so those organizations may not be appropriate.

Yes, I agree. Similar options exist in every province, so when she has identified location, she can explore in the surrounding area for similar orgs.

Yah....I felt the same way.
That's why I'm looking for college courses... diploma or adv Diploma to get job. (To me.., getting a degree form an University is expensive )
