What are the Job Prospects for Immigrants in Canada?
If you are
considering a move to Canada, and you're not relocating due to a career change,
then one of the first priorities will be to start looking for a job. Canada is
already considered one of the best places for immigrants, with many people
stating that they are at their happiest in Canada, but what about job prospects
and employment opportunities for immigrants, and how easy to go it alone and
follow the path of self-employment?
One thing anyone
planning a move overseas should do is find out about the local employment
opportunities. Keeping track of Labor Force Surveys will indicate which
industry sectors are showing signs of growth and which sectors are declining;
this will make it easier to understand the prospects of finding employment once
the move to Canada has been completed.
There was good
news in that the latest Labor Force Survey in Canada showed a drop in unemployment.
According to statistics, the surge in employment was due to an increase in
youth employment. Last month's employment figures are encouraging; there are
more people employed in Canada now then there was a year ago.
with other surveys, it was also found that there is an increase in part-time
work as part-time jobs continued to increase compared with full time job
creation. This is something that immigrants particularly need to take note of. Part-time
jobs - although easier to find - obviously don't offer as much security as full
time work, and if these surveys are anything to go by, full time work in Canada
is becoming more difficult to find.
finance, leasing, insurance or real estate are among your main interests, these
sectors all experienced a growth in employment. Figures also showed that there
was an increase in private sector employment; the agriculture industry showed
growth, too. Moreover, the figures showed that the number of people
working in the manufacturing sector or in the public administration sector were
on the decline.
If you are
considering self-employment once you've immigrated to Canada, then you'll be
interested to know that levels of self-employment have fell in some provinces.
In total, there were 45,000 fewer people working for themselves. However, that
doesn't mean that self-employment is impossible once you've created a new life
in Canada; if you can spot a niche or choose a growing sector, then you could
be on your way to a successful business.
