The skills in demand in Canada

Moving to Canada can be a scary prospect! There's so much to sort out before you go, and so much to do once you get there. The absolute number one thing you should be looking into though, is how to secure a work permit for yourself. In this blog we'll be giving you the lowdown on the Canadian Skilled Migrant work permit, which is allowing hundreds of Brits to follow their dream every year.

Due to a labour shortage in Canada, there are lots of different careers that are in demand. In fact, the Canadian government is willing to import Europeans with the necessary skill set, and let them stay on indefinite work permits, as long as they are willing to continue working in that particular field.

There is currently a list of 29 different occupations that Canada is searching for, and you can find the information you need on this page - http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/skilled/index.asp. Canada is looking for 20,000 workers under these occupations, so see if yours is listed below - http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/skilled/apply-who-instructions.asp#list.

If it is, all you need to do is follow the instructions on the site and you could be living in Canada within months. There are other options though. If you want a taster of life in this great country you can always try the one year working holiday programme. It's available to anyone under the age of 30, and applications are open now.
