High / Top Paying Jobs in Canada For Immigrants – No Visa Needed – How To Apply
It’s no surprise that so many people choose to live and work in Canada, given its breathtaking natural beauty, low cost of living, and friendly natives.
You may be aware that Canada has the world’s longest coastline, Niagara Falls, the Rocky Mountains, maple syrup, and ice hockey.
But did you know that the world’s second largest country also has a low crime rate and is consistently voted as one of the best and most peaceful places to live?
Another major draw for expats is that English is the primary language (with French spoken predominantly in Quebec province).
Expats frequently visit Ottawa, Vancouver, Edmonton, Oakville, and St Albert in Canada.
Combine this with the friendly inclusive nature of its inhabitants and Canada becomes even more appealing.

You’ll apply for jobs in a similar way as you would in the UK – with an initial application, either an online form or résumé. If successful this often leads to an interview.
As mentioned, Canadian employers will require a résumé rather than the UK standard CV and cover letter. A résumé is designed to be more concise and tailored to each job application.
