How Can I Immigrate to Canada

Immigrating to Canada can be a simple process, but it takes proper planning. ​Jobs Alberta can help with every step of the immigration process, from finding the right job to completing all of the government paperwork and planning your new life in Canada.

​In order to Immigrate, you will need to:

Ensure you are eligible for immigration

Canada has guidelines around who can immigrate and when depending on current industry needs. You can find out whether you will be eligible by visiting the Government of Canada website

You can find out whether you will be eligible by visiting the Government of Canada website.

Complete an English test and criminal background check.

In your home country, you’ll need to complete an English test and have criminal background checks completed. This can usually be completed through your local government or police department. Both of these will need to be completed in order to apply for jobs in Canada.

Save some money

When you apply to immigrate, you will pay a fee. Because you won’t get paid immediately when you arrive in Canada, you will also need to have some savings ready before you immigrate. You’ll need to consider the cost of you and your family's living expenses such as renting a home, groceries, transportation, and more as well as one-time costs like a damage deposit for your home rental, and purchasing furniture or a car.

Prepare for your transition in Canada

Once you know where you’ll be moving to, you’ll need to start planning. We suggest researching the city you’ll be moving to so you understand how you’ll get to work, what neighbourhood you might want to live in, and how you’ll access everything you need. You may want to arrange for temporary housing when you first arrive, as searching for a house or apartment rental is easier once you’re in the city. Consider a motel or hotel for your first couple of weeks.

Be ready to try something new

Canadian culture celebrates diversity, freedom, and acceptance. We are a mix of different cultures that brings different people and countless options for food, activities, and shopping. Canada might be very different from your home country, but there are lots of ways that you can celebrate your culture, religious beliefs, and traditions. Because so many people immigrate to Canada, in the major cities you will find festivals and religious groups for nearly every culture in the world. Be open-minded and ready to try something new.
