If you are moving to Canada to find a job, and you have in fact found one, then you might wonder how exactly you are going to get to Canada to do your work. Well, you have come to the right article, because this article is going to show you how to move to Canada for your next job, starting with the paperwork!
Moving to Canada for work
Two Ways To Come To Canada To Work
There are two main ways to get employment in Canada. You can either get a permanent residence visa or you can come to Canada with a temporary work permit. This article won’t delve into all the legal paperwork, but you need to pick which path you will go down and then see what paperwork and other options are going to be available. For most people, getting a temporary work visa and then transitioning into permanent residence is the way to go.
Thankfully, Canada has several programs that fast track qualified UK immigrants who are looking for jobs and who have the skills that Canada needs, so depending on your industry you might be able to get into Canada faster than you thought.
Research And Learn Everything You Need Paperwork Wise Before You Go
As the first section of this article likely showed you, you need to have a lot of paperwork and visas prepared to get into the country, even if you have a job. So that is why you need to research everything you need. What pathway will you go down for getting employment in Canada, where will you live, what do you need to have in terms of government paperwork, and so on?
Taking a few months just to do research and get all of these questions answered is going to make sure that you don’t get tripped up waiting for paperwork to arrive or that you don’t miss out on benefits that would have fast tracked you to a new job.
Make Sure All Your Furniture Is Ready To Be Shipped
Moving furniture abroad isn’t just about loading it into boxes or your truck and then driving it to your new place. No, you will need to research and learn about how to ship furniture to Canada. Typically you do this by working with an international removal company that will take all your furniture and your non essential items and then ship them from your country of origin to your new home in Canada.
Just make sure you schedule the moves correctly, because you don’t want your furniture to arrive a few weeks before you do, or you to arrive a few weeks before it!
Look At Canadian Culture
Whether you are interested in the donuts, the music, or the kindness, you will find a lot of Canadian culture that is all over the country. Depending on what province of the city you live in, you will be able to experience different parts of Canada and different aspects of the culture. So do some research on each province, because while most of the jobs you will be doing are province specific, others might give you some choice on where you live.
Pick the province that seems like the most fun to you and the most interesting if you can, because once you move there you will be much more likely to get out and explore it!
Learn About Your Job In Canada
Finally, if you are taking on a completely new job in Canada or doing a job you’ve done before and are simply moving for the location, you should still do some research on how your job works and how Canada’s employment system works. Their companies might have a totally different structure or way of doing things than your home country does.
If it is the same job no matter where you go, you should at least focus on the conversion rate to convert the money that you are paid into the Canadian dollar! And also see what the conversion rate is, because that might impact if you move or not!
Take Advantage Of Your New Opportunity
Moving to Canada for work can be very fun and can be a great opportunity to experience a new country and a new culture. As long as you follow the directions and make sure to do all your research beforehand, you can get all your paperwork handled and then start moving to Canada. Pretty soon you will be there for your first day on the new job!
