Canada’s most popular job search sites

For Canadian employers, the job-posting process can be frustrating, time-consuming, and unreliable. It can be a lot of work to sort through stacks of resumes, call up candidates, and do interviews – and this doesn’t always produce the best hire. Because so many employers try to avoid the process, approximately 80% of jobs never get listed at all.
These unlisted jobs makeup “Canada’s hidden job market” and are most commonly accessed by potential employees through personal contacts and/or networking. The importance of personal contacts and networking cannot be stressed enough in the context of finding work in Canadian society.
However, for those of us who have exhausted our personal contacts and networks or for those who are looking for immediate employment, advertised jobs are another option to securing employment. Because employers typically only spend 20-30 seconds reviewing resumes, it is vital that when responding to advertised jobs potential candidates write tailored resumes and cover letters for each position applied to. Candidates should also demonstrate that they have the key skills and qualifications that the employer has outlined in the job description and that they discuss why they are interested in the organization based on conducting research on the organization they wish to work for.
The following is a brief list of Canada’s most popular job search websites. More links to job search websites that are specific to professional industries are also included below.

Atlantic Immigration Pilot for Employers: Prince Edwards Island.

The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program is an employer-driven federal immigration pilot program designed to help you fill permanent labour shortages and skill gaps in your business by supporting foreign nationals for permanent residency.  There are three different streams which aim to address different needs.  The Atlantic High Skilled Program allows you to attract highly skilled individuals, the Atlantic Intermediate Skilled Program allows you to attract semi-skilled individuals, and the Atlantic International Graduate Program allows you to attract recent graduates from Atlantic Canada post-secondary institutions.

Am I eligible?

To be eligible to participate in the Pilot you must be a designated employer.  To become a designated employer you must:
  • Want to hire full-time, non-seasonal international candidates
  • Be in good standing with provincial and federal standards and legislation as per the program guidelines
  • Demonstrate your preparedness to receive and meet the settlement needs of international candidate(s) and accompanying family members, and agree to do so
  • You understand and agree to the reporting requirements for the program

What is the process?

The Pilot is a two step process.  The first step is to become designated.  You will only need to be designated once, but you will be contacted annually by our office to update your file.  The second step is to identify international candidates that you would like to support through this program and submitting an endorsement application to our office. 

Why should I apply now?

The Province is able to designate employers now in anticipation of the Pilot opening.  You only need to be designated once to be eligible to participate in the Pilot, so if you get designated now you will be eligible to start submitting endorsement applications now.

How do I apply?

If you meet the criteria listed above you must first read the application guide then complete the employer designation form.
The complete form can be submitted to the Office of Immigration in three ways:
Office of Immigration
94 Euston Street, 2nd Floor
PO Box 1176
Charlottetown, PE
Canada  C1A 7M8

Do I have to pay a fee?

There are no fees payable to the Province for the designation or endorsement process.  All regular federal immigration fees(link is external) apply.

What forms do I need to fill out?

To become designated as an employer who is eligible to use the Pilot you must complete an employer designation form.  To apply to have a candidate endorsed you must already be a designated employer and then submit an endorsement form.

Who can I contact with questions?

Forward questions related to the Pilot to immigrationpilot@gov.pe.ca(link sends e-mail) or call (902) 620-3628.

Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program for Employers: Newfoundland and Labrador.

Immigration, multiculturalism, and diversity have significant social, economic, and cultural benefits for Newfoundland and Labrador. Immigrants coming to our province not only enrich the social fabric of Newfoundland and Labrador, they also bring economic advantages, generate innovation, attract industries and workers, and spur economic growth.
The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP) will help address labour market challenges in the Atlantic Provinces by assisting employers in attracting and retaining skilled immigrants. Newfoundland and Labrador is working closely with the other Atlantic Provinces and the Federal Government to ensure the successful development and delivery of the AIPP.
To participate, employers must meet certain requirements, including a commitment to support the newcomer and their family as they integrate into their new life in Atlantic Canada.  Starting in early March 2017, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada will begin accepting permanent resident applications targeting international students, intermediate-skilled workers and high-skilled workers.
Potential employers who may be interested in taking part in the AIPP could include those involved in food services industries, the health care sector and other employers prepared to offer full-time employment opportunities for hard to fill positions.  Interested employers are encouraged to review the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Employer Designation Guidelines and contact the Department of Advanced Education, Skills and Labour’s Office of Immigration and Multiculturalism to learn more about the Pilot.
The Way Forward: A vision for sustainability and growth in Newfoundland and Labrador committed to increasing the number of immigrants to the province by 1,700 annually by 2022. Prior to the end of this fiscal year, Government will outline specific actions for achieving this target.
