    Skilled foreign workers seeking Canadian employment might want to review a report published in May 2017 which lists details about the 100 top jobs in Canada for 2017.


    Each of the top 100 best Canadian jobs is ranked and includes details about its median salary, growth in salary/wages during a five-year period, increase of new jobs in Canada in the past five years, and the outlook for the occupation.


    For example, at the top of the CanadianBusiness.com list of the 100 best Canadian jobs for 2017 is Director of Public Administration, which was ranked #1, has a median yearly salary of $106,662, boasted a 17.08% growth in salary between 2010 and 2016, enjoyed a 39.20% increase in new jobs in Canada during the 2010-2016 timeframe, and has a positive outlook for the future, according to the report.

    Since there is an ongoing shortage of qualified Canadian workers for several of the top jobs in Canada, many of the high-demand occupations are eligible for Express Entry immigration to Canada, which was created to facilitate the Canadian visa application process for eligible skilled foreign workers and their family members.


    In addition to meeting the education and work experience requirements for an eligible occupation, other criteria (e.g., English or French language skills, health, character, etc.) must be satisfied before a Canadian visa is granted.
