Canada is generally considered a job seeker’s paradise with many industries flourishing in this region.
Migrants from across the globe are searching for jobs and prospective employers in Canada. The reason behind this is the country’s booming economy, developed status and a relatively liberal and open immigration policy.
The job opportunities in Canada have multiplied at a steady rate post recession. More and more investors and businesses have opened the flood gates in Canada both in the industrial as well as service sector.
The service sector alone contributes to 75% of the Annual GDP of Canada. Hence, one can find jobs in various domains in this region.
The opportunities available in this region are available to both the Business Class (Employers) as well as Employees (Job Seekers):
The developed economy of Canada has been attracting businessmen and investors from every nook and corner of the globe. There are several sectors like hospitality industry (restaurants, hotels etc), legal services, medical sciences, read estate, media etc where a lot of current investments are being made.
Investors are eyeing cities like Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Victoria and Ottawa for their urban settlement as well as popularity among job seekers. There is also a large population of immigrants settled in these regions of Canada.
British Columbia, closely followed by Quebec; are among the most economically influential provinces in Canada. They are at the heart of urbanization and at the helm of trade and commerce in the country.
Employees have a variety of verticals to choose from in Canada. Mostly, there is a great influx in sectors like news media, hospitality, Information Technology, Transportation, Legal Services, Nursing and Medical Sciences, Complementary and Alternate Medicines, Real Estate, Consultancy etc.
There are various sectors which are currently requesting job applications for a variety of vacancies. Some of these sectors include financial services, retail, education, real estate, high-tech, information technology, entertainment, healthcare and tourism.
One of the main attractions for migrants seeking new opportunities abroad, and why it seems half the world wants to be Canadian, is that Canada has a liberal and generous settlement policy.
Unlike some countries where settlement can take as long as five years, e.g. the UK, or is not allowed at all, as in most of the Middle East, Canada allows many categories of skilled immigrant workers an opportunity to apply for Canadian permanent residency after just two years.
