Work Visa Canada

Employment Opportunity

Canada has good employment opportunity. The job market is very similar to that of any developed country.Canada has a strong and stable economy that creates a huge demand for skilled and semi-skilled workers from a different range of fields such as Engineers, IT, Education, Human Resource, Accounting & Finance, Sales & Marketing, Hospitality, Media & others. Canada is one of the most popular destinations for skilled migrants from across the globe.

The service sector jobs are in a dominant position, but also have good opportunities in the manufacturing and natural resource sector. Communication skills in English language is one of the major requirements if you are looking for a high paying job. Though there are provinces like Quebec which require French language as their first preferred language, resulting in majority of Quebec population speaking French. For specific high paying jobs, you may also be required to have a good command over the French Language. Blue collar worker (also referred to as manual labourers) may be skilled or unskilled and may involve in manufacturing, mining, construction, mechanical work and maintenance. Some of them being very significant in nature. In Spite of having equal pay as any other service sector job, the only drawback to it seems to be the lack of benefits of such as health care, vacation, and bonuses. 

Presently, the health sectors, sales & services and manufacturing sector offer the highest employment opportunities.
