SHORTAGE OCCUPATIONS IN CANADA

According to Canadian experts, annually about 250-300 thousand immigrants arrive in Canada. The lion's share of foreigners seek permanent residence permits and stay in this beautiful rich country forever. Despite the fact that local authorities are interested in providing maximum employment, especially for Canadian citizens, to improve the level of economic development and prosperity of the state as a whole, skilled professionals from abroad are often invited to work in Canada.

Canada has very effective immigration programs designed specifically to attract applicants with skills that are scarce for the local labor market. Anyone can fill out an online application form (Express Entry) on the government's official website and check their chances of finding a job. One of the main conditions is the demand for a profession in Canada. In addition, education, qualifications, experience, and language skills are checked. The age and health of the candidate matter.

Professional immigration programs are designed for long-term employment and permanent resident status. For temporary employment, you may try to obtain a regular work visa to Canada, which is valid for up to 4 years. The main requirement here is a work permit (LIMA), which is issued only if locals do not apply for the job and if the Canadian economy really needs a foreign professional. Of course, you must find an employer in advance and sign an employment contract.
