How to Get a Job in Canada (from Nigeria)

15 Shares

Canada is nicely perched in the north eastern part of the world map and it can be really literally cold out there. A lot of Nigerians are based in Canada for various reasons from tourism, study to visit and business/working. Getting a job in Canada thought isn’t rocket science, it isn’t as easy as some scam artist in the name of agents makes it seem.

Canada has one of the most organized systems in the world and so the strategy of getting a 2 months tourist visa and hurriedly look for work or probably extend the visa duration would most likely not work in Canada. A lot of Nigerians have fallen prey to so-called agents who collect exorbitant fees with the promise of helping them get a well-paying job with a Canadian firm, only to be defrauded and end up without both the job and their money.

Going to Canada

With their very organized structure, and a very flexible and expansive work force, the Canadian labour market is one that has a lot of room for job seekers and when it comes to employing beyond the shores, Canadian firms are one of the most open and welcoming.

Although their standard of living is high, it’s not over the roof as many as portrayed it to be.

How to get a job in Canada from Nigeria: Sites to visit

Getting a job in Canada from Nigeria would of course require your time to keep applying to job openings that are offered to both residents and international applicants.

To have any chance of landing that dream Canadian job, you must know that you’re to possess a skill or have an experience that would entice employers. Also, you must be willing to spend time online to extensively apply.

To be honest the route that has worked for many in getting their desired Canadian jobs and procuring a Canadian Working Visa is a platform Express Entry.

Express Entry is a platform that has helped many job seekers gain both jobs and entry into Canada. Although it hasn’t worked for everyone because of different reasons including qualifications, employer’s selection, some specific issues employment lawyers dealing with and so on, Express Entry has a lot of positive feedbacks.

Express Entry is used to manage applications for permanent residence under these federal economic immigration programs:

  • The Federal Skilled Worker Program,
  • The Federal Skilled Trades Program, and
  • The Canadian Experience Class.

How it works

  • To begin your Canadian employment journey, simply log on to cic.gc.ca
  • Click on register and provide accurate info about your Nationality, Skills, Work Experience, Language ability, Education, and so on.
  • Keep applying to openings and always check your inbox for mails from Express Entry.

If you meet the criteria of one of the federal immigration programs, you will be accepted into a pool of candidates.

Note: Entry into the Express Entry pool does not guarantee a candidate will be issued an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence. Invited candidates still have to meet eligibility and admissibility requirements under Canada’s immigration law (Immigration and Refugee Protection Act).

The highest-ranking candidates in the Express Entry pool will be invited to apply for permanent residence.

Information on your profile must be as detailed as possible because candidates will be ranked against others in the pool using a point-based system called the Comprehensive Ranking System. Points are awarded using the information in their profile.

Candidates with the highest scores in the pool will be issued an Invitation to Apply.

If you’re invited to apply, you will have 60 days to submit an online application for permanent residence.

Candidates can stay in the Express Entry pool for up to 12 months. If they do not get an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence within 12 months of submitting an Express Entry profile, they may submit a new profile.

Candidates can stay in the pool for up to 12 months. If they do not get an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence within 12 months of submitting an Express Entry profile, they may submit a new profile. If they still meet the criteria, they can re-enter the pool. This will prevent backlogs and ensure quick processing times.

If you’re lucky enough to get an ITA, then youremployer would do most of the process for you. For visa procurement and tracking, you can visit: www.canadainternational.gc.ca/nigeria/
