job market in canada

One of the main reasons why foreign professionals decide to immigrate to Canada is the opportunities that the job market offers.

Canada has a very low unemployment rate and is a victim of its success in managing the economy, which has generated a demand for qualified professionals that is greater than the domestic market can offer. The only solution, then, is to hire in other countries.

A proof of this is the visa program for skilled workers, the international recruitment missions and the platforms, subsidized by the government, with places aimed at foreign audiences.

In other words, you can participate in a selection process from your home country and immigrate to Canada with a job in your area.
