Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) – Jobs for New Immigrants
Why is it so hard for new immigrants in Canada to find work?
People always underestimate how tough it may be for a newcomer to find a job in a new country. While Canada is one of the most accepting countries in the world, to a new immigrant, it can be completely overwhelming. Even the concept of a standard interview or a Canadian style resume is new and foreign.
Why do we need a specific job board aimed at helping Newcomers to Canada find work? Can’t they use the same job boards as everyone else?
In a perfect world, we would not need an additional job board for new immigrants/newcomers to canada. Unfortunately, countless studies have proven a subconscious bias to hire employees with more Canadian experience. At www.newcanadianjobs.ca we aim to highlight employers who are making a commitment to hire new immigrants. We want to showcase those who are willing to go a step further and welcome new Canadians to their companies.
I want to hire a new immigrant, but they require sponsorship. What do I do?
www.newcanadianjobs.ca is a job board and is not able to offer any immigration advice. If this is a path you would like to take, we strongly encourage that you review your options here http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/ or contact a certified consultant found here http://iccrc-crcic.info/.
Do you work with any partners to find qualified applicants for these jobs?
Absolutely. www.newcanadianjobs.ca shares our resources and positions with dozens of employment centers across Canada. We work with government-funded initiatives, not for profit organizations, community groups, and local clergy to share these positions with amazing staff across the country. Our goal is to provide a national job board for new immigrants in Canada.
Do you operate any other specialized job boards in Canada?
In addition to the partnerships mentioned above, we also share resources with two other targeted job boards.
www.aboriginaljobboard.ca is a national resource for first nation job seekers looking to work across Canada.
www.canadayouthworks.ca is a national job board for youth with barriers to the job market.
