If you want to apply for a Work Permit or permanent residence in Canada in the economic class, in most cases, you will need to find an employer in Canada.
If you are going to get a job or study in Canada and if you like IT, Yumi’s recommendation is Information Technology professions.
The reasons for IT:
As our world relies more on information technology, IT jobs are no longer just for technology start-up companies and cable companies. Every industry, from fast food to fashion, relies on information technology to keep its business running.
IT field offers a variety of jobs, competitive salaries, and a wealth of opportunities.
Of course, it is possible to aim for permanent residence in industries other than IT. To develop Canada’s economy, the mainstream of permanent residence applications is for those who are engaging in managerial and technical positions. (occupation level 0, A or B under National Occupational Classification).
Then, I can’t apply for permanent residence if I do not have a skilled job?
That’s not the case.
Most of Canada’s permanent residence applications correspond to a skilled job; however, there are options for Low-skilled and Semi-Skilled Workers. High school graduates could aim for permanent residence if you find the right program.
There are various programs at the federal and provincial levels for Low-Skill and Semi-Skill Workers to seek permanent residence. You could apply by having a job offer from a Canadian employer. Please contact YuPass Canada for more information as some provinces offer the chances to limited occupations.
If you are married to a Canadian or have a Canadian common-law partner, you could apply for permanent residence in Canada in a Family class.
The bond between the two is of utmost importance, so it does not matter if the applicant has a job or not.
Even if you don’t have a job, you may be able to get permanent residence in Canada if you meet a lovely Canadian partner.
How much should I be paid by my employer when applying for a Work Permit or Permanent Residency?
