Work to Consider

Project management

This guide for newcomers outlines the process for project manager certification; level of English proficiency required; financial assistance available; training and employment programs; and compensation ranges.

Engineering

This guide for newcomer engineers outlines the process for licensing; funding sources for licensing and training; licensing and bridging programs for ITEs; and other engineering-related occupations to consider.

Information and Communications Technology

There is currently tremendous demand in Canada for talent in the information technology sector (commonly referred to as ICT, for “Information and Communications Technology”). There is no question that employers are keen to hire qualified newcomers. Immigrants already represent over 40% of the ICT workforce in Canada. However, while job opportunities are plentiful, newcomers may have some difficulty finding work, due to language proficiency or unfamiliarity with Canada’s workplace culture. Fortunately, there are many programs, training opportunities, job services, and job fairs that can help qualified newcomers find employment in this industry.

Manufacturing

Often, the term “manufacturing” conjures images of large factories where employees work on an assembly line to piece things together, such as fabricated metal products, machinery, and automobiles. Given the diversity of products and production methods, there are many different jobs within the manufacturing sector.

Health care

Internationally-trained health care professionals who are newcomers to Canada may face difficulty qualifying to work in this country. However, there are numerous bridging, language, training, and employment programs to help them transition to working in the same, or related, fields as they settle in.
