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.
