Work to Consider

Local Delivery Service Drivers and Helpers

Job opportunities for local delivery and courier service drivers are plentiful as long as the correct licences are held. Many jobs are entry level and job requirements in terms of skills and English language proficiency are not stringent. This sector includes a diverse range of employers and opportunities to work as either an employee or as an owner-operator.

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.

Long and Short Haul Truck Driving
