Working in Canada

Canada is quite a unique and diverse country, and because of this every year over 90,000 foreigners come to work in Canada on a temporary basis to help address the skilled labour shortage. To get a job in Canada most positions require you to obtain a work visa or a valid work permit, you can search online if you are eligible for a work visa. You must have a job offer from an employer before you can apply for a temporary work permit. When working in Canada you are not eligible to immigrate with either a visa or a work permit, you must follow the proper channels to gain immigration status. When attempting to work in Canada all potential workers must meet the same requirements that apply to all temporary residents, you should find out these requirements before you apply by searching the internet. Foreign students must come to Canada with enough money to pay their tuition and bills without working. If a student wants to work in Canada for some extra money or to gain Canadian work experience he or she will have to apply for a work permit.

Once you get a job in Canada, you are protected by federal and provincial laws. These laws are in place to protect you from unfair treatment based on your sex, race, religion, age, and disability. When working in Canada the law also protects workers by setting a minimum wage, a maximum number of hours you can work for one employer, and very high health and safety standards. You are also provided with an annual paid vacation as well as maternity leave for either the mother or father. So if you’re lucky enough to work in Canada, don’t worry, an employer can’t take advantage of you.
