The essential ingredients for your work in Canada experience heavily depend on what you want to do, and where you’re going. First of all, you’ll need to organize the correct passport and visa. The next step is finding somewhere to live. If you’re moving to a new country to work, the best idea is to spend a month or so in a hotel until you find the right place. Many of our work, study, teaching and volunteering programs however, include accommodation, so you’ll be able to bed down from day one with your fully furnished accommodation. If you are not a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, you need a work permit to work legally in Canada. In general, you need to apply for a work permit from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) or a Canadian visa office before you come to Canada.
Working in Canada is an attractive option for many skilled foreign workers from all over the world. Each year, close to 200,000 foreign skilled workers come to work in Canada on Temporary Canadian Work Permits. There is no reason why this cannot be you too!
