Jobs in Canada
Getting a job in Canada is one of the most popular means of immigration for our clients, who enjoy the stability of knowing that they have a set income and sponsored work visa when they arrive in Canada. Our recruitment team works closely with candidates to ensure that they are marketable to Canadian employers by rewriting their resumé to Canadian standards, completing international qualification equivalency tests, collating the last 10 years’ of references, and working with recruitment partners to present our clients with the best Canadian jobs for their skills and experience.
Due to the Canadian immigration procedures, employers must submit a justification for hiring a foreign worker rather than a local person. IXP works closely with employers to complete all of the necessary documentation and ensure that there are no unnecessary delays in getting your new candidates into Canada to begin work.
Our recruitment teams ensure that both the candidate and employer are fully informed of the latest stages in their relocation, and that the best candidate is chosen to fill the ideal role. Our meticulous system of updating recommendations, completing the international qualification equivalency tests, and checking employment history mean that employers are confident that our candidate is the best fit for the role, and the candidate knows that this is the best career option for them.
We have recruitment partners in every province of Canada. They work closely with Canadian employers to identify the industry and specific skill requirements within their companies, and ensure that our candidates are always informed of the latest job opportunities.
In addition to specializing by province, our recruitment partners work specifically according to industry. These include:
- Oil & Gas
- Science & Research
Canada is also very welcoming for foreign investment and entrepreneurs who wish to establish their business within Canada. Whatever your situation - whether you've just graduated, or if you're a board-level professional - we can help you find your next challenge and the perfect opportunity within Canada.
IXP Case Studies
How we have helped employers
Pierre-Luc is a migrant himself – he came to Canada 20 years ago and established his business in a francophone region. Now the business has expanded into another five provinces, and he desperately needed new talent to manage yet another office that was opening in Toronto.
“I had tried to employ from abroad before, but the Canadian government did not agree that I couldn’t employ a local person despite advertising for the role several times and never finding anybody suitable. I needed managers with international experience, and other candidates with very specific qualifications which are in short supply in Canada.
It is an excellent country for business, but I did not understand why it was so difficult to just employ from the global talent pool rather than having to find someone within the country. One of my contacts referred me to IXP, who handled the paperwork and presented me with a range of excellent people who had worked in different countries and had the levels of experience that I needed to know my business was in good hands.”
Employers in Canada often find it difficult to stay informed of the latest changes in different visa types. Our team always work on the latest information, and can ensure that your business has the people it needs to thrive.
How we have helped candidates
Debbie and Joe’s friends had moved to Canada years ago, and were very happy with their new home. When they researched the living standards there and looked at the education options, it seemed like an excellent way to give their children a good start in life.
“The more we looked at Canada as an option, the better it seemed. The education, the healthcare, the job prospects, and the difference in cost of living was incredible. Our friends’ daughter had just graduated from university there and went straight into a managerial job, which is almost unheard of now at home - I think that was the final push.
We had no idea what the options were for us as a family, so we got in touch with IXP. After discussing it with one of their consultants, it turned out that we both had skills that are really in demand in Canada. Joe’s and engineer and I’ve been a midwife for 15 years. We were both amazed at how quickly everything happened. IXP even helped us to set up our new bank accounts before we moved and put us in touch with a very good shipping company.”
Other Canadian Skilled Work Options
The pathway for jobs in Canada for immigrants is different depending on your profession. Under the country’s Federal Skilled Worker scheme, some professionals can enter the country without an offer of employment if their skills are considered of high-importance to the labour market. While this may mean that you have to live off savings while you find work, it does mean that you can interview directly with employers and discover new options when already in the country
Vocations in this scheme include:
- Various positions within the oil and gas industry
