Where should I get help to find work?

There are many community agencies that provide employment services for newcomers to Ontario and even more agencies that provide services to all residents in a community.

Finding work in Canada is not easy, especially if you have never done it before. Why? Some things that you need to think about:

  • How to find work in Canada – Understanding the job market and finding jobs that are not advertised.

  • Language and communication skills – The first impression you make on an employer will be the one that helps them decide if they want to see you for an interview.

  • Are you willing to start at a junior level in order to start in Canada or to go to the small to mid-sized companies?

  • Do you understand Canadian work culture, especially the importance of communication, teamwork and organization skills to employers?

Some community services can help you with one-on-one advice and help to create your résumé and cover letter and to find local companies. Others have more structured programs where you spend some time in a group classroom finding out about how to work in your career here.

What kinds of help can I get?
