Already the Minister of Canada's Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism- Jason Kenney is planning to bring in more than 10,000 skilled workers and professionals by 2012 to fill in the vacant positions in Canada. That's a lot considering the unemployment rates that are bursting out of every corner in the world, but Canada seems to shift on the other foot. Like China, Canada's economy is booming and the need for workers are ever-increasing and since there's not enough manpower within their local population, the government is looking elsewhere to help fill this gap. The good thing is that there are pools of talents found in every country of our planet, who are more than willing to live and work in Canada.
Now there are plenty of ways to get into Canada if you've got the proper skills and experience in the job, then you can apply as a skilled worker immigrant. However, you'll also need to have an invitation to work in Canada by your employer for you to qualify. Even its neighboring country America has been looking to Canada for job opportunities and as a matter of fact, the number of US citizens applying for temporary work visa has significantly increased and is expected to increase next year as well. This is due to the fairly recent 2009 economic recession that has crippled the US economy and left thousands jobless even until now.
Canada offers so many opportunities for people from all over the world to emigrate from their own country. You can apply to immigrate from your country of origin and when your application is successfully granted your permanent resident card (PR Card) is issued to you so that you can relocate. However, a lot of people have gotten jobs before immigrating which even enhances the immigration process.
You must bear in mind that despite immigrating with your Permanent Resident Card most people have actually gotten very good job offers from Canada while still living in their own country. If the job is certified by the Human Resources and Skills development Center, Canada (HRSDC), they no longer need to wait for their PR Card before they can travel and work. A visa and work permit is issued to the individual from his country of origin which enables him to comfortably work.
Although this person still has the status of a temporary resident he can still be working while waiting for his application for a permanent resident status to be approved.
