Job Hunting

Finding work in Canada is one of the most popular Google searches. Many people from around the world wish to live and work in Canada. Some enter the Express Entry system or opt for a Working Holiday visa. Some of the most in-demand fields in Canada right now are healthcare, teaching, STEM, engineering, IT and R&D, construction, and transportation.

To read the list of current, in-demand occupations in Canada, feel free to visit the Canadian government’s official website.

At UIS Canada, our immigration consultants would be able to advise you on immigrating to Canada as a skilled worker, be it through the Express Entry programs or any of the regional programs available to your profession. We would also be able to check for job opportunities through our partners in recruiting agencies to make sure we cover all our bases.

If you are interested in the Working Holiday program, for example, we can also help you find temporary gigs in a wide range of hospitality industry roles, such as bartending, waiting tables, room keeping, etc.


What is the pool?
To be included in the pool you must qualify for one of the specific immigration programs listed under Express Entry. You must also score a minimum of 67 points on your immigration profile. Points are awarded for educational and professional qualifications, work experience, age, language ability, and more. The Canadian government selects the most suitable candidates from the pool and issues them with an official invitation (known as ITA) to become Canadian residents.
How many points do I need to get selected?
The Express Entry system uses what it called the Comprehensive Ranking System, a formula that takes into account your education, skills and experience, those of your husband/wife or partner, and whether you have a specific job offer. These factors go to build up your score out of a possible maximum of 1200. As mentioned, the higher the points you score, the greater the possibility to be selected from the pool.
How long does it take to move to Canada?
The idea of starting a new life in Canada is very exciting. But please be prepared that getting selected for an immigration program takes time. This is why the Express Entry program is extremely popular - the Canadian government aims to select candidates within 6 months. Time may significantly vary between immigration programs; the individual process of each program, government policies, the complexity of your case, and more, may affect the time it would take you to move to Canada.
Are there any goverment fees?
Like many other countries worldwide the Canadian government charges fees for the processing of immigration entries. Depending on the specific program you entered, the size and age of your family, and more – you may need a few hundred to several thousand Canadian dollars. Please note that all government fees are non-refundable. This is one of many reasons you should prepare well for your immigration process, gain as much knowledge as you can, and if possible, seek help from professionals in this field.
