Would you like to work and live in Canada? Every year, Canada welcomes thousands of people to our wonderful country. It takes time and thought to plan your immigration journey. Destination Canada Mobility Forum is the go-to event to learn about work opportunities in Canada.
Every year, thousands of newcomers from around the world choose Canada as their destination, creating new economic opportunities for themselves.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, travel and moving plans have been disrupted. The current situation, border closures and travel restrictions have meant that many individuals wanting to study, work or settle in Canada have had to delay their plans. However, these challenging times are the perfect moment to start learning about our programs.
Many people come to Canada as permanent residents under Canada’s immigration programs for skilled workers through the Express Entry system. Others choose to settle in a specific region of the country and immigrate through the Provincial Nominee Program administered by Canada’s provinces and territories, or through programs such as the Atlantic Immigration Pilot or the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot.
Others come to Canada to work temporarily to gain work experience and to add international experience to their careers. International Experience Canada offers thousands of young people the opportunity to travel and work in Canada with its Working Holiday, Young Professionals and International Co-op (Internship) categories.
There is a wide range of opportunities for candidates interested in moving to Canada. The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) office at the Canadian Embassy in Paris is here to help you by organizing information sessions throughout the year on immigration to Canada, including Destination Canada Mobility Forum. This annual fair is an information, recruitment and networking event that allows people interested in Canada to discover opportunities to live and work in provinces and territories other than Quebec. The province of Quebec organizes its own activities such as the Journées Québec.
The 16th edition of the Destination Canada Mobility Forum will be online from February 26 to 28, 2021. It will take place on a virtual platform where participants can attend webinars followed by question and answer periods and visit over 100 exhibitors at their virtual booths. The exhibitors include not only Canadian employers, but also representatives of provinces and territories, cities and regions, Francophone community organizations and organizations offering services to newcomers.
Job openings in various fields will be posted on this page. If you don’t find a job that corresponds to your profile, you can still apply to attend the event to network and get information about Canada and Canadian immigration programs.
If you don’t have time to visit all the exhibitors or attend all the webinars, don’t worry! The platform will remain accessible to registered visitors throughout the month of March. You will be able to view webinars that you were unable to attend and download documents from booths you were unable to visit.
Participation is free but by invitation only. You can request to participate online. You will be asked to provide a bilingual resume in Canadian format and your National Occupational Classification (NOC) code.
Invitations to the live online event will be sent out starting in mid-February and will be based on the needs of the Canadian labour market and job postings on the forum platform.
Until we meet at the virtual forum, feel free to follow Destination Canada Mobility Forum on Twitter and Facebook and subscribe to the newsletter to get all the information on the event and on immigration to Canada.
Good luck in your efforts!
