In this lecture, the instructor introduces himself to the students and explain why he has created this course.
In Canada, there are four categories of immigrants: family class (closely related persons of Canadian residents living in Canada), economic immigrants (skilled workers and business people), other (people accepted as immigrants for humanitarian or compassionate reasons) and refugees (people who are escaping persecution, torture or cruel and unusual punishment)
Most of the Canadian public, as well as the major political parties, support either sustaining or increasing the current level of immigration.
In this lecture, we will be examining the Canadian immigration system and the different programs available to potential Immigrants.
Canada is known for its diversity, inclusive values, and high standard of living is internationally recognized as one of the best countries to live in.
In this lecture, we will review the main reasons why people around the world choose Canada as their destination for immigration purposes.
In this lecture, we will see the Tourism industry at a glance in Canada
In order to work in Canada on a temporary basis, most foreign workers require a work permit. For foreign workers, an offer of employment from a Canadian employer is usually required before the worker may be granted a Temporary Work Permit.
In this lecture, we will learn what is a work permit and how you can find out if you are eligible to get one.
To gain a Canadian visa, you will need to demonstrate your English and/or French abilities to Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
You must prove your language skills by taking an approved language test. To do this:
schedule your test with an agency approved by IRCC and pay the costs
enter the test results into your Express Entry profile (if you are applying under one of the Programs)
include the results with your application if you are invited to apply. If you don’t include it, IRCC will not process your application.
In this lecture, you will learn the available choices for a language test for immigration purposes.
An Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) is used to verify that your foreign degree, diploma, certificate (or other proof of your credential) is valid and equal to a Canadian one.
If you have a Canadian degree, diploma, or certificate, you do not need to get an ECA for that credential.
The ECA report must show that your completed foreign credential (degree, diploma, or certificate) is equal to a completed Canadian secondary school (high school) or post-secondary credential.
Depending on your case, you may want to have both your secondary and post-secondary credentials assessed, and not just your highest completed foreign credential.
If you plan to work in a regulated profession, you must still get your license in the province or territory that you plan on settling in.
In this lecture you will learn how to find the NOC of your profession or occupation in Canada, so you can understand how your work experience from your home country compared to the duties, employment requirements as well as job titles in Canada.
When reviewing the potential occupations, the accompanying education, main duties, and employment requirements should also correspond to the job performed.
Employers can hire temporary workers through the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) or the International Mobility Program (IMP).
The TFWP lets employers hire temporary workers to fill temporary labor and skill shortages. You will need a document from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC)/Service Canada stating that you can hire a temporary worker. This is known as a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).
In this lecture, we will review the process of getting an LMIA and other important information for employers.
The Job Offer Letter. A job offer letter is a document that confirms the details of an offer of employment. The job offer letter includes details such as job description, reporting relationship salary, bonus potential. benefits, vacation allotment, and more.
In this lecture, we will learn about the requirements that a job offer needs to meet in order to use it in your work permit application.
Where is the best place to live in Canada?
One way to find out is to follow Money Sense magazine which analyzes data for 100+ communities to discover the very best places to live in Canada. This is updated once a year.
Another way is to do our own research by using tools that provide suggestions based on your occupation and Labor Market conditions.
In this lecture, we will explore both choices so you can decide on the best place for your immigration plans and your career in Canada.
The Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIP) is a federal program dedicated to increasing immigration in the region. The three-year pilot will provide permanent residence to a maximum of 2,000 principal applicants under the economic class (plus their dependents) in 2017.
In this lecture, we will review the overall program and how you can use it to get a job in Canada.
In this lecture, we will learn about employment opportunities outside of the major cities in Canada and what it can mean for your career and immigration plans. We’ll introduce you to resources and programs to support you on your path to building a life and career in a small community.
We will explore the benefits of living in a small town, the types of employment opportunities available, and the benefits for internationally trained professionals.
The hidden job market is a term used to describe jobs that aren't posted online or advertised in any other way. This job market might be “hidden,” but it is possible for you to find out about these jobs.
Many employers choose to use the hidden job market to avoid the lengthy and expensive process of open online applications. Instead of posting a job opening, some employers will choose alternatives such as hiring internally, going through a recruiting firm, using headhunters, and relying on referrals.
In this lecture, we will explore the different ways to tap the Canadian hidden job market.
Every culture has its own norms, including workplace culture. In a Canadian workplace, communication and behavior may be different than your previous workplaces.
Expectations and roles of employees
Be punctual (be prepared to start on time).
Know your roles and responsibilities.
Fulfill your duties and responsibilities.
Work both independently and as a team member.
Make suggestions and ask questions.
Be able to work well with others (teamwork).
Individualism and self-reliance
Canadian culture can be highly individualistic. Therefore, you may encounter:
Independent decision-making rather than group consultation
Rules and procedures that are emphasized more than relationships
Looser and less permanent relationships between people, compared to other cultures
Performance assessment on an individual basis, rather than as team member
Direct praise and criticism
Work and time
The Canadian approach to work and time may be unfamiliar to you. Typical Canadian attitudes toward work and time include:
A strong division between home life and work-life
An emphasis on deadlines rather than on relationships
An emphasis on punctuality and “getting down to business” rather than on building relationships

A resume is a document used by job applicants to present their backgrounds and skills. Resumes can be used for a variety of reasons, but most often they are used to secure new employment. The resume is usually one of the first items, along with a cover letter and sometimes an application for employment, which a potential employer sees regarding the job seeker and is typically used to screen applicants, often followed by an interview.
A resume is a marketing tool in which the content should be adapted to suit each individual job application or application aimed at a particular industry or field. Together with a cover letter and letter of reference, constitute a fundamental part of your job search portfolio of tools.
In this lecture, we will explore the importance and best practices of preparing Canadian resumes, cover letters, and Reference Letters, and some templates and online tools will be provided for your study, so you can prepare the ideal Canadian Employment search Portfolio, that later you can tailor for your job applications.
An online interview is an online research method conducted using computer-mediated communication (CMC), such as instant messaging, email, or video. Online interviews require different ethical considerations, sampling, and rapport than practices found in traditional face-to-face (F2F) interviews.
There's more than one kind of online interview. In addition to the live, two-way interview, which replicates the face-to-face experience on screen, some employers are also using "one-way" video interviews, where job seekers are e-mailed a video link and use their webcams to record a response.
In this lecture, we will review some recommendations for online interviews and some recommended resources for you to check.
Optimizing a job search helps job seekers attract prospective employers and jobs in Canada. Take advantage of tools and resources mention in this section to get more employer responses and interviews.

A job board is a website that facilitates job hunting and range from large scale generalist sites to niche job boards for job categories such as engineering, legal, insurance, social work, teaching, mobile app development as well as cross-sector categories such as green jobs, ethical jobs, and seasonal jobs.

LinkedIn is a business- and employment-oriented social networking service that operates via websites and mobile apps. It is mainly used for professional networking, including employers posting jobs and job seekers posting their CVs.
LinkedIn allows members (both workers and employers) to create profiles and "connections" to each other in an online social network which may represent real-world professional relationships.
Members can invite anyone (whether an existing member or not) to become a connection.

Every year, Canadian employers and crowds of job seekers congregate to discuss job opportunities. Job fair events feature a maze of employer stalls with long line-ups and lots of noisy chatter.

Joining letter (Date, position, role and location, employee id, company email id )
Letters indicating roles and responsibilities

To immigrate to Canada, you and any family members 18 and older must include their police certificates as part of the application for permanent residence.
You must get one from each country or territory where you've spent six or more months in total since the age of 18.
For countries where you've lived for six months or more in total, the police certificate must be issued after the last time you lived in that country.
In some countries, it can take a long time to get police certificates. Ask for them right away, so you can submit them before your 90 days are up.
If you have a criminal record, you may not be allowed to enter or stay in Canada. People who pose a risk to Canada’s security are also not allowed to come to Canada.
In this lecture, we will explore how to meet the requirements for getting a Police Certificate for Immigration Purposes.
Nowadays, there is a way of knowing your Canadian academic equivalency before you
