Besoin d'un emploi? Venir au Canada

Soumis par sur Juillet 19, 2010 – 10:35 sur3 Commentaires

Cana­da has been get­ting a lot of love from the U.S. media late­ly. Comme les Etats-Unis. eco­no­my conti­nues to floun­der, the Ame­ri­can press is saying, « Go North! »

Stub­born­ly high unem­ploy­ment rates got you down? Not sold on the eco­no­mic reco­ve­ry? Look no fur­ther than Ame­ri­ca’s polite neigh­bor to the north, where jobs num­bers are sur­ging and home prices have been rising stea­di­ly for near­ly a year.

That’s what the Huf­fing­ton Post wrote recent­ly in Besoin d'un emploi? Try Cana­da, Where Hiring Is Boo­ming And Home Prices Are Rising.

L' Huff Message article also noted that « last month, Cana­da, a nation with rough­ly one tenth of our popu­la­tion, crea­ted about 10,000 more new jobs than America. »

De même, in «Cana­da’s eco­no­my can teach the U.S. une chose ou deux» the Los Angeles Times contends tha­t « …on heal­th­care, as well as on such cri­ti­cal issues as the defi­cit, unem­ploy­ment, immi­gra­tion and pros­pe­ring in the glo­bal eco­no­my, Cana­da seems to be out­per­for­ming the Uni­ted States. Et, ce faisant,, it is offe­ring examples of suc­cess­ful stra­te­gies that Ame­ri­cans might consider. »

L' Los Angeles Times article goes on to sug­gest that

…as Ame­ri­cans conti­nue their grue­ling bat­tle over immi­gra­tion, Cana­dians have uni­ted behind a poli­cy that empha­sizes ope­ning the door to tens of thou­sands of skilled pro­fes­sio­nals, entre­pre­neurs and other pro­duc­tive wor­kers who have played an impor­tant role in streng­the­ning the Cana­dian economy.

So per­haps it’s not sur­pri­sing that plus, well-edu­ca­ted immi­grants are increa­sing choo­sing to come to Cana­da, plutôt que l'U.S.

En fait,, une récente Ipsos Reid/­His­to­ri­ca-Domi­nion Ins­ti­tute poll, which sur­veyed near­ly 18,000 personnes dans 24 coun­tries, constaté que « a majo­ri­ty (53%)…say they’d live in Cana­da if they had an oppor­tu­ni­ty to move. »

And that same poll repor­ted that près d'un tiers (30%) of Ame­ri­cans would choose to relo­cate to Cana­da, if they could.

Among the fac­tors that sur­vey respon­dents cited about the bene­fits of life in Cana­da include:

  • Near­ly 80 pour cent ont convenu que Cana­dians enjoy one of the best qua­li­ties of life anyw­here in the world.
  • Most respon­dents (72%) believe that Cana­da is wel­co­ming to immigrants.
  • Eight in ten respon­dents des­cribe Cana­da as being tole­rant of people from dif­ferent racial and cultu­ral backgrounds.

Que pensez-vous? Have you relo­ca­ted to Cana­da for work? Are you thin­king about moving to Cana­da for eco­no­mic rea­sons? Leave a com­ment and let us know.

    Je suis un 28 year old girl from Ita­ly with a Mas­ter Degree in Trans­la­tion (from Ita­lian to English and vice­ver­sa) and I would like to move to Cana­da (Van­cou­ver or Calgary)looking for a job in Trans­la­tion field.
    I don’t know how to look for a job. Can any­bo­dy help me?

    Salut, Allan,
    If you do want to look for libra­ry career oppor­tu­ni­ties in Cana­da, check out the Cana­dian Libra­ry Asso­cia­tion site (, espe­cial­ly the Job Search page and the page about reco­gni­zing Forei­gn Credentials.

    Ano­ther immi­gra­tion option you might want to inves­ti­gate is the « pro­vin­cial nomi­nee » pro­gram avai­lable in most pro­vinces. If you qua­li­fy as a « skilled wor­ker» it can be a fas­ter route to per­ma­nent resi­dence than the stan­dard fede­ral per­ma­nent resi­dence appli­ca­tion pro­cess. If you’re inter­es­ted in Nova Sco­tia, you can read about their pro­vin­cial nomi­nee pro­gram here:

    For more about Nova Sco­tia, vous voudrez peut-être pas de consulter notre message, « Nova Sco­tia Jobs and Where to Find Them »:

    Your idea about buying a vaca­tion home – or just coming to Cana­da for six months – is ano­ther rea­so­nable approach. If you’re an Ame­ri­can citi­zen, you can come to Cana­da as a visi­tor for up to six months a year. De cette façon, you can decide if you like it before making a more per­ma­nent com­mit­ment. It would also be easier to make local contacts and net­work for job pos­si­bi­li­ties if you’re phy­si­cal­ly loca­ted in the area where you’d like to live.

    Good luck and let us know how you’re doing!

    Oui, I am thin­king about it quite serious­ly. But so far the Immi­gra­tion Cana­da web­site gives me the strong fee­ling that I don’t qua­li­fy: My cur­rent pro­fes­sion isn’t in a « hot » skill (J'étais un bibliothécaire / archiviste; I lost my job in the bad eco­no­my…), and I have abso­lu­te­ly no ties to Cana­da otherwise.

    I’ve also tra­vel­led to and lived in Europe, so I’m also applying to go there.

    Meanw­hile, Cana­da has always been in the back of my mind for about a decade, mais j'ai eu un bon travail ici à New York pour la plupart de ce temps. But now I would real­ly like to come to Nova Sco­tia (put­ting me at least an hour clo­ser to Europe!); I’m consi­de­ring coming through the back door, pour ainsi dire, by buying a vaca­tion home so that I can stay for at least six months to figure out what to do. I thought that I should go back to school in NS and learn some­thing com­ple­te­ly dif­ferent alto­ge­ther in a higher demand field (like culi­na­ry arts…)

    I’d be gra­te­ful for any suggestions!
