I to have seen this.Canada has Provinces not States. IT skills are not in demand in Canada.
This is correct.I to have seen this.
The big 3 cities for IT and Finance are Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver ??? is this correct, which of these 3 cities gives you your best bang for your buck in the cost of living, everything?
If you spoke both French and English would this increase the changes of a LMO, obviously in Ontario and Quebec im talking about.As Auld Yin said, IT jobs are not considered as "In Demand" by Canada.
It is very unlikely you would get a positive LMO for one (unless you have an extreme niche skill) which you will need for a work permit.
No, if the profession is not considered "in demand", it is highly likely there will be Canadian citizens or permanent residents with the skills required to fill a vacancy. this will rule out the possibility of being issued an LMO.If you spoke both French and English would this increase the changes of a LMO, obviously in Ontario and Quebec im talking about.
I would agree with this statement. I work in IT for years. We recently had an opening for an IT Business Analyst and after posting the job in recruitment sites and local newspapers, we couldn't find anyone qualified with experience to fill the job, and finally had to hire someone from all the way on the other side of the world (she started here a couple months ago). We are now posting for a Sr. Network Administrator who is Cisco certified and are finding the very same thing... that after posting the job, we got a bunch of applicants who are new and fresh faced to IT, but none with years of experience. So we are now once again looking to hire someone from outside of Canada.Workpolis says IT jobs are some of the hardest to fill in Canada. There is a link to it form the Workopolis FB page.
We all live attached to our smartphones—that’s just a reality of today. Statistics from a mobile technology group put more than 50,000 people working in mobile technology. Sounds like a lot, but when you consider the 1.9 million people who work in retail or the 1.5 million in manufacturing, you can see how small that segment really is. So why are these jobs so hard to fill? The rapid growth of the industry just can’t keep up with the number of people with those specific skills.
Niche IT jobs
Unsurprisingly, IT roles always fall into the hardest-to-fill category. “In terms of hard to fill roles within IT, it always comes down to how niche the technology skill-set is,” IT recruiter Carmine Pallazzo explains, “Some technologies or skill-sets literally reduce our talent pool to a handful (i.e. less than 10 across the country) of people…from here, you now have to assess whether or not they meet the other mandatory requirements: does the location and/or salary work, and of course, is this individual available. These factors can bring your talent pool down to zero.”
