Skilled account managers won’t become one of the most threatened jobs in Canada any time soon.

An accountant will crunch the numbers for you so you don’t have to. If you like crunching numbers, though, accounting is a great career to pursue because you’ll be able to find work almost anywhere, with clients ranging from businesses to private individuals. If you qualify as a CPA, you may even look at a salary of over $200,000 per year. The job usually involves driving around, so it will be helpful to learn how to keep your car costs down.

  1. Software Engineer

As more of our daily life depends on software of some kind, software engineers aren’t just in demand in the tech industry anymore. They can find well-paid jobs in just about any sector, whether it’s banking or government. It’s the kind of job where you won’t have to interact with many people, so it’s one of the perfect careers for introverts.

  1. Machine Learning Engineer

A machine learning engineer develops artificial intelligence machines and systems. The government’s Pan-Canadian Artificial Intelligence Strategy may help drive the demand for machine learning engineers this year.

  1. Industrial Technician

Growth in the manufacturing sector means there is a demand for skilled trades such as industrial electricians. Moreover, there is a shortage of qualified workers in this area and if you have the skills and experience, you can also have your pick of the best jobs, especially in Nova Scotia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, Newfoundland and Labrador.

  1. Pharmacist

The demand for pharmacists is growing due to two factors: the aging Canadian population and the increasing number of retailers that now include pharmacies. This may not be one of those jobs that could make you a millionaire but it pays well enough to help you retire in comfort.

  1. Psychologist

A growing awareness of the importance of mental health means a growing demand for psychologists and, as Training Schools says, there may even be a shortage of trained professionals in this field in the next few years. Your income will depend on how many patients you take on.

  1. Registered Nurse

Registered nurses are in demand throughout Canada, also in small rural communities where they may be the primary healthcare providers. With aging Baby Boomers requiring more healthcare and many registered nurses reaching retirement age themselves, this is one of the top careers that will be in demand after 2020.

  1. Aircraft Pilot

Being an aircraft pilot is a job that lets you retire early and since the median age for pilots in Canada was 44 in 2014, more jobs should start becoming available in the near future. You don’t need to work for one of Canada’s big airlines, either. You can also find work in the mining, logging, medical, fire fighting or adventure travel sectors.

Refugee Application Process

There are several steps to Canada’s refugee application process.

Eligibility for Canada Refugee Status

Not everyone is eligible to make a refugee claim. A person is not eligible if:

  1. The claimant has ever before made a refugee claim in Canada;
  2. The claimant has been recognized as a refugee in another country and can be returned to that country;
  3. The claimant came to Canada through a designated “safe third country”;
  4. The claimant has been determined to be inadmissible on the basis of security, serious criminality, organized criminality, or violating human or international rights.

Note: Canada has signed an agreement with the United States designating the U.S. as a “safe third country”. Claimants coming from, or even just passing through the U.S., are ineligible to make refugee claims at a Canadian border crossing by land. They will be turned back to the U.S.

A Canada immigration official initially decides if a refugee claim is eligible. If the claim is made at a border crossing, a quick decision can be expected as to eligibility. It takes considerably longer for a decision with respect to eligibility if the refugee claim is first made at an immigration office inside Canada.

Referral to the Immigration and Refugee Board

If an immigration official considers the claimant to be eligible, then the file is transferred to an independent administrative tribunal called the Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB). The IRB determines whether the claimant is a genuine refugee and deserving of protection in Canada. The claimant is required to first complete a Personal Information Form (PIF) and submit it to the IRB. About 12 months later the claimant attends a hearing before a member of the IRB. In rare cases, where the evidence is exceptionally clear, a claimant may be accepted without a hearing.

Refugee status decision

If the IRB determines that the claimant is a genuine refugee, the claimant becomes a protected person and can apply for Canadian permanent residence inside Canada.

If the IRB refuses the claimant, an application for judicial review can be requested from the Federal Court of Canada. If the claimant does not succeed in Federal Court, then removal from Canada becomes probable.

Before removal, the claimant can ask for a Pre-Removal Risk Assessment (PRRA). The same grounds for protection are assessed as in a refugee claim, but the decision is made by a Canada immigration official instead of the IRB. In cases that have already been considered by the IRB, only changes in circumstances that have occurred since the IRB decision will be taken into account. In some instances, even claimants who are ineligible to make a refugee claim are entitled to a Pre-Removal Risk Assessment (PRRA).

Individuals who have a refugee claim rejected, abandoned or withdrawn may eventually apply for a Pre-Removal Risk Assessment (PRRA). This is an opportunity for people who are facing removal from Canada to seek protection by describing, in writing, the risks they believe they would face if removed.

Ontario issues new invitations to French Speaking Express Entry candidates

OINP has now issued 1,006 invitations through French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream in 2018

The Government of Ontario has invited 29 Express Entry candidates to apply for a provincial nomination through its French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream.

The August 30 draw was Ontario’s twelfth through the French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream since the start of June.

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) has now invited 1,006 Express Entry candidates in 29 draws through its French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream since the start of 2018.

The OINP said candidates invited in this round submitted their Express Entry profiles between January 1, 2018 and August 30, 2018.

The French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream was launched in 2015 to target French-speaking Express Entry candidates who qualify for either the Federal Skilled Worker Class or the Canadian Experience Class and are sufficiently proficient in English (CLB 6 or higher).

There are also unique provincial criteria that candidates must meet.

The stream aims to bolster Ontario’s francophone community, which numbers more than 622,000 people and is the largest French-speaking minority in Canada.

Express Entry manages the pool of candidates for Canada’s three federal economic immigration programs — the Federal Skilled Worker Class, the Federal Skilled Trades Class and the Canadian Experience Class.

Express Entry candidates who are nominated by Ontario receive an additional 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score.

Key facts

Ontario is a study in contrasts. The varied landscape includes the vast, rocky and mineral-rich Canadian Shield, which separates the fertile farmland in the south and the grassy lowlands of the north.

Here are some key facts about Ontario:

  1. Ontario’s more than 250,000 lakes contain about one-fifth of the world’s fresh water
  2. In summer, temperatures can soar above 30°C (86°F), while in winter they can drop below -40°C (-40°F)
  3. Ontario’s industries range from cultivating crops, to mining minerals, to manufacturing automobiles, to designing software and leading-edge technology
  4. Cultures from around the world thrive and are celebrated in Ontario with festivals such as Caribbean Carnival, Oktoberfest and the Canadian Aboriginal Festival
  5. Travelers can enjoy the many experiences Ontario has to offer, from a wilderness expedition in the north, to a “shop till you drop into your theatre seat” city excursion


Ontario’s economy thrives through its unique combination of resources, manufacturing expertise, exports and a drive for innovation. Ontario generates 37% of the national GDP and is home to almost 50% of all employees in high tech, financial services and other knowledge-intensive industries”.

Services industry

Although Ontario is a manufacturing powerhouse, the services sector is the largest part of Ontario’s economy. It employs 79% (or 5.3 million people) of the province and makes up 76.9% of the province’s economy. Examples of Ontario’s major services sector include business and financial services, professional and scientific technical services, and arts and culture.
