Finding a Job in Canada
If you have job skills that Canada needs, Canada will welcome you.
Well-educated, professional people will find it easiest to get jobs, as will those with technical skills, particularly in information technology, biotech, and resource-based industries, such as oil and gas. The country’s tourism industry is another source of jobs.
If you’re trying to find out where the best job prospects are in various regions of Canada, check the Canadian government’s Labor Market Information site.

The Canadian government runs a nationwide Job Bank site that lists thousands of jobs in many different industries and regions.
