Canada has always been a place which is considered to be one of the best locations for immigrants.
This country has job vacancies for a wide range of professions starting from nurses to even IT professionals. And the employers look for people even beyond the boundaries.
Before you look for a job
Before arriving at this country you must make it a point to understand the market trend and the demand of professions. It is known to many that Canada is a good pay master and the immigrants are provided with a good working condition.
While searching a job you can always take a little help from your acquaintances and learn about the job market more.
Stepping into the country becomes easier if you hold a job offer from an employer in Canada. This offer should ideally include information on Salary, benefits, the work hours, job responsibilities and any such detail which will affect your immigration process.
When you meet all the requirements you will be given a temporary work permit which will allow you to work as temporary foreign worker.
The support for the immigrant workers
Very recently, Saskatchewan and the Department of Labor and Employment have entered into a MoU, which is meant to protect the Filipino workers. This is to enable and implement good recruitment practices between Philippines and Saskatchewan
The Province is likely to open almost 14,000 jobs for the workers coming from various countries.
The migrant workers are always informed to collect details of the kind of wages or salary they would be getting, the work hours, the leave and the other benefits and conditions associated with the job.
A worker can enjoy a benefit of somewhere between $8 to $10 for an hour of service as a waiter.
Canada promotes healthy and fair practices so that the workers do not live under threatened conditions.
The precautions to be taken
The officials suggest that online applications should be avoided as it won’t be feasible for the online recruiters. It is important to check the credibility and validity of a recruitment agency before starting with the association. There are some provinces like Saskatchewan for which one need not pay any “recruitment fee”.
Changing the employer
If a worker intends to change his employer then he can always do so, he would not face any penalty for this. You must inform your employer through proper channel about this. Also, if an employer wishes to terminate a worker, written notice has to be provided.
A new comer may face difficulties in adjusting with the society here; there could be a case of racial discrimination too. And this is mainly due to language barrier.
Benefits like health care are not readily available to the new immigrants which leave them to wait for a considerable period.
Working in Canada could be an experience filled fun because except for a few instances immigrants are reported to be quite satisfied with their decision of coming to the country.
