How can I find an employer in Canada?
Finding a job is no easy task for both Canadians and prospective immigrants. You will need to find an employer who is not only willing to hire you but supports you in applying for certain documentation you will need to procure your immigration to Canada. Whether it is a Labour Market Opinion or an arranged employment opinion, your employer will need to provide certain documentation to assist in this. Sadly, not all employers are willing to undertake such efforts. You will need to find the right employer. There are many excellent job sites as well as services in Canada for people attempting to find employment. Consider researching before you endeavour to come to Canada.
I have found a permanent job in Canada; how do I apply for permanent residence?
Similar to a work permit application where a Labour Market Opinion is required, so too is it for this type of application. Once you have obtained a positive LMO, you will then proceed to apply for permanent residence.
What documents will I need from an employer, if any?
Your employer will need to provide you with certain details about the business in general as well as provide you with proof of a valid job offer. Documents like articles of incorporation, taxation information, property ownership or lease, as well as a contract are just some of the items your employer will need to provide.
What documents will I need to apply for arranged employment in Canada?
Aside from the documents your employer will need to provide you, you will need proof that you meet the requirements of the position being offered. Documents like any degrees or diplomas, transcripts, your resume, letters of recommendation etc., will definitely be useful if not outright required.
Does any job qualify for arranged employment?
The job offer you receive must be full-time, permanent and be considered to be a skill type A, B, or 0. Skill types can be found on the National Occupational Classification Matrix. You will need to determine whether or not your duties align with one of these skill sets. If it does, then it qualifies for arranged employment. If the position does not fall under one of these skill sets, unfortunately, it does not qualify.
