  • Canadian Visa “Opens Door” to Jobs in Canada

    One of the many benefits of having a Permanent Resident (PR) Visa to Canada is being able to legally apply for Canadian job openings. There is an increasing demand for skilled foreign workers to fill thousands of jobs in Canada in dozens of high-demand occupations due to large numbers of Canadians retiring from the country’s workforce; skills mismatch; and the healthy expansion of Canada’s economy. This has led Canada’s government and business leaders to turn to Canadian immigration as a key method of filling jobs in Canada. In fact, the Canadian government has set a goal of granting a PR Visa to Canada to 164,500 “economic immigrants” during 2014 to help keep the economy growing. Speaking of this Canadian immigration goal, Citizenship and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander said on October 28, 2013, “Canada is in a global competition for the best and brightest immigrants, and this plan is crafted with attracting the people we need for Canada to succeed.”

     

    Those remarks were echoed recently by Gordon Nixon, CEO of the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), who stated in May 2014, “Diversity and immigration are important parts of Canada’s past, present and future.” He went on to declare that, “Canada welcomes almost a quarter of a million permanent immigrants each year – one of the highest rates of all developed countries…Canada must remain a destination of choice for skilled immigrants – entrepreneurs, professionals, scientists.” Indeed, according to the United Nations (September 2013), Canada has the world’s 8th largest immigrant population, with 7.3 million of the country’s 35 million residents foreign-born. Sustained Canadian immigration, much of which is motivated by people seeking jobs in Canada, has given this beautiful country one of the most multicultural populations on Earth and also makes it a comfortable place for newcomers to feel at home.

     

    This is an excellent time for immigrants who have been issued a PR Visa to Canada to enter the Canadian job market. With an ongoing labor shortage, the “Law of Supply and Demand” has boosted the salaries of many high-demand jobs in Canada, which is good news for skilled foreign workers who are approved for Canadian immigration and possess the education, job skills and experience that businesses are seeking. For example, here are the median annual salaries for several of the best jobs in Canada for 2014: audiologist & speech pathologist ($79,040); civil engineer ($79,331); dietitian & nutritionist ($68,640); financial analyst ($68,578); healthcare manager ($87,360); human resources manager ($81,994); mechanical engineer ($75,005); occupational therapist ($73,112); petroleum engineer ($100,006); power system operator ($76,960); purchasing manager ($75,317); registered nurse ($72,800); secondary/high school teacher ($76,003); software engineer ($82,992); and university professor ($83,616).

     

    Many Canadian job opportunities can be found in the construction industry, particularly in Alberta and British Columbia. For example, these are some average yearly salaries (2013) for several construction-related jobs in Alberta: boilermakers ($72,051); bricklayers ($84,525); carpenters ($68,652); crane operators ($80,626); drillers and blasters - surface mining, quarrying and construction ($94,475); electricians ($80,492); and welders ($74,839). In short, a PR Visa to Canada can “open the door” to excellent Canadian job opportunities for skilled foreign workers who qualify.
