Since the beginning of 2023, Canada has been one of the countries that regularly announces job calls, some of which may be of interest to those looking to explore new directions. In addition to the salary and the work to be done, there are other requirements that need to be taken into account for the process to be successful.
The government of that country is constantly opening vacancies in specific sectors and regions like Quebec for which it provides some recommendations if you are determined to participate. It is the beginning of a selection process which, like many others, consists of several stages and is mediated by various factors depending on the job being applied for.
The government of the North American nation warns that, if you are going to opt to apply through an agency, the applicant is not obligated to pay for certain steps in the recruitment process. However, it is possible that provisional selection will request a work permit fee and an amount for application review.
Nor can an agency require you to hand over or hand over personal documents such as, for example, your passport or health insurance. The government insists on confirming that the unit has a license to operate: in the case of foreign workers, a permit issued by the Commission for Standards, Equity, Health and Safety at Work (CNEST).
