Finding work in Canada after obtaining permanent residency and immigration can be difficult, and gaining work experience in Canada is generally necessary for newcomers. To improve your chances of finding a related job, it is essential to build relationships with people in the same field as you and other Canadians from your country of origin.
Most employers will be especially interested in your ability to work effectively in English or French, so improving your language skills improves your chances of finding a job. It is also important to understand Canada’s work culture, as each workplace has its own culture, and all of them meet Canadian work expectations.
