Gaining Canadian Work Experience



Working in Canada

Newcomers may face challenges finding a job in Canada.  Statistics Canada identifies four labour market challenges faced by newcomers to Canada. One challenge is work experience.

Experience in a Canadian workplace may be a requirement or an employer preference, in both regulated and non-regulated occupations. It is useful for newcomers to present experience they have gained in another country as valuable to Canadian employers. This can be done in a resume.
