  • Top Jobs in Canada for 2016

    A key reason to apply for Canadian immigration is that there are many jobs in Canada available for eligible skilled foreign workers in a variety of occupations. Some of these high-demand jobs in Canada require a university degree, while others need post-secondary training, such as from a trade/vocational school, community college, apprenticeship, etc.

     

    In addition to having many Canadian employment opportunities, jobs in Canada also tend to pay well. According to Canada’s Best Jobs 2016, published April 28, 2016, several professions and skilled trades in Canada have excellent salaries and job growth potential. Here are just some of the top 100 jobs in Canada for 2016 along with their median salaries:

     

    • Audiologist and Speech Language Pathologist = $83,200 per year

    • Chemical Engineer = $84,989 per year

    • Civil Engineer = $80,080 per year

    • Construction Manager = $79,997 per year

    • Elementary School/Kindergarten Teacher = $74,277 per year

    • Financial Manager = $97,074 per year

    • Healthcare Manager = $89,440 per year

    • Human Resources Manager = $83,200 per year

    • Occupational Therapist = $78,395 per year

    • Pharmacist = $99,840 per year

    • Pipefitter and Sprinkler Installer = $70,720 per year

    • Psychologist = $79,997 per year

    • Registered Nurse = $74,880 per year

    • Software Engineer = $88,005 per year

    • University Professor = $87,277 per year

     

    Keep in mind that the median salary is half-way between the lowest salary and highest salary, plus many factors can influence how much money a worker earns (e.g., education, experience, skills, business sector, company size and resources, location of the company, etc.). Thus, some people who work in Canada may earn more than the median salary and others less. These examples are used simply to illustrate that jobs in Canada often have good salaries. Nonetheless, consider this: If the median salary for a Canadian kindergarten teacher or elementary school teacher is $74,277 per year ($6,189.75 per month), how much might you earn if you work in Canada?

     

    Skilled foreign workers who want to live and work in Canada must be issued either a temporary work visa or a permanent resident visa to Canada. A Canadian temporary work visa allows a foreign worker to live and work in Canada for a limited period of time. Major advantages of a permanent resident visa to Canada include being authorized to live and work in Canada long-term; sponsor eligible family members for Canadian permanent residency; free basic healthcare; access to excellent educational options; and the possibility to apply for Canadian citizenship after living in Canada four years and meeting other criteria.

     

    The Canadian government has established several programs for “economic immigrants” and their families who want to live and work in Canada long-term. Examples include the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) and Provincial Nominees Program (PNP). Each of these Canadian immigration programs has its own eligibility requirements and also qualifies for Express Entry to Canada.
