Information for candidates

Destination Canada is your chance to discover opportunities to live and work in Canada. Participation is by invitation only. Candidates are invited to attend in light of the job offers posted prior to the event, the overall needs of the Canadian labour market and eligibility requirements for immigration to Canada.

The presentation and round table discussion will give you a detailed view of Canada, its regions, economy, work opportunities as well as information on how to obtain a temporary work permit or permanent resident visa. Representatives from several of Canada's provinces and territories will be at the stands to tell you about their regions, cities and communities as well as their specific immigration programs. Representatives from French-speaking communities across Canada will be present to answer your questions about life in French in Canada.

Canadian employers will be present with job offers. Workshops on a range of themes from starting a business in Canada to preparing your Canadian résumé will be held on site. To complete the picture, your national public employment services will explain how they can help you prepare for international work experience.
