Finding a Job

Finding a job in the Ontario Skilled Trades, construction and engineering sectors can be a challenge, especially for those who are not familiar with Canada’s Work Culture. As a prospective immigrant, it is helpful to inform yourself on Ontario’s culture and practices before starting your job search. Questions to ask yourself before immigrating:

  • How does Ontario regulate the trades?
  • How does Ontario regulate engineering? 
  • Do I need to be licenced to be able to work in my trade? 
  • What are the strategies used to find employment? 

So you’ve completed the research for your Skilled Trade, and you feel ready to start applying for jobs. You might be asking yourself, “Where do I start?” First, think about where jobs in your trade are advertised, and then consider best practices when applying. Having some direction on best practices will benefit you by:

Imagine you have received a call and been invited to your first Canadian interview! You are probably a little nervous, and maybe feeling a little unsure of what to expect. Canadian interviews can be difficult. The way a Canadian interview is done can be very different from the way that you are familiar with.  There are certain details to think about when preparing for your Canadian interview: 

  • Date/Time/ Location of the interview
  • What documents you need to have with you
  • How to answer interview questions for the best possible results
