What professionals are required in Canada?


There are many ways to get to Canada to work and get money,

The flow of workers into Canada has been a constant since the 1970s until today, especially with the signing of the Free Trade Agreement in 1994.

The Temporary Agricultural Workers’ Program (PTAT) and the NAFTA or Free Trade Agreement (TLC) are two of the main ways that compatriots arrive in Canada. So much so that it is estimated that half a million Mexicans have lived temporarily in that nation since 1980 only for temporary residence programs: 56% of them in the category of agricultural workers, 20% as external workers in other categories, 13% As students and 11% for humanitarian reasons or as refugees, according to data from Citizenship and Immigration Canada.

The Canadian economy and its openness to multiculturalism make that country a prosperous place for migrants from different regions of the world and with different skills and this is proven by its openness to the search of various professionals.

The PTAT is a mechanism between Mexico and Canada that was born in June 1974. The program has been consolidated as a bi-national public policy that guarantees the mobility of Mexican agricultural workers in a safe, legal and orderly manner.

Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, and Alberta are the Canadian provinces that more Mexican agricultural workers receive and, over four decades, have placed more than 330,000 Mexicans in vegetable and vegetable crops, fruits, flowers, greenhouses and nurseries.

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), on the other hand, allows Mexican and American citizens the possibility of applying for a temporary work permit in Canada.

There are three types of permits granted by the agreement: “Professionals”, “Transfers within the company” and “entrepreneurs and investors”.

In the case of the permit for professionals, the candidate must prove that he is duly qualified to carry out his work through experience and educational credentials.

If you are traveling to Canada you should consider …

Permits to reside or work in Canada are the exclusive competence of the Canadian authorities. For this reason, it is best to consult the corresponding pages of the Canadian immigration authority and address them directly.

If you are dealing with a Canadian labor recruitment agency, make sure you have the authorization of the Canadian government to perform such duties.

They may try to trick you into buying fake documents. In a number of cases, the victims have received offers of well-paid work to provide their services at Canada hotels or on ships at sea. In other cases, they are promised a visa (sometimes including travel and accommodation), in exchange for money.
