    Good Morning fellow South Africans. My wife and I a trying to make a move to Canada this year. The reason being, that we have a special needs kid (also in the 99th percentile for his intelligence), and the South African education system does not allow for anyone different to the societal norm. The reason for Calgary, is that we currently have family there (who are also looking for jobs for us). Could you guys please keep a lookout for any NOC 0, A or B occupations that a foreign national can apply for, or if you have an opening where you are, to please let me know. My wife and I have been pastors in our church for over 12 years. I am very good at working with people (especially students from 12 - 19 years), I have set up the network from scratch at our church (multiple APs, Fibre, routers, etc.) and troubleshoot all IT related issues with our staff (been up to 25 people). I also manage the production, lights, sound, livestream, video editing (premier pro, after effects, audition), etc. My wife is amazing with people, she is currently the executive pastor, handling all the volunteer teams, church communication, administration, managing leaders, etc. She is excellent at graphic design (specifically photoshop and illustrator). My wife is younger, so we are looking to enter through her, but we need that all important job offer. Could my fellow South African please keep an eye out for us. Thank You! Dane

    finding employment in Canada

    Hi all, one of the main concerns when getting your PR is employment and source of income when you get to Canada. If you are in your process, if you find a job and add that offer to your EE profile, it will add +600 to your CRS. (you will get an invite the next round of invites). but a lot of people have to find employment when they get to Canada. I have found this video to be very informative on how to look for employment before and after you get to Canada + it tells you about your resume and cover letter.
  3. Hi all, I have the privilege of having a really cool boss here in SA. As I know it's extremely difficult to get a job in Canada from South Africa, he said that he would be willing to support me for a couple of months in Canada (as my job mainly involves computer-based work). Now, the amount that I will make when converted to CAD isn't much, but it will supplement my savings as I look for a better job in Canada. What are the tax implications for this? Will I be losing too much salary to various regulations and conversion fees etc? Should I rather go straight to McDonald's for a job when I land? I'm generally a rather risk-averse person, and like to have some level of financial security - so this is all very daunting for me. Any advice?

    Resume/ Cv

    Good day members. I was wondering if there is anyone that can provide me with some insight, advice etc. I am looking for a legitimate and reliable service to "Canadify" or call it what you will my CV. I believe it is extremely important to make your cv appeal to the Canadian job market and have been told that this is actually crucial. So is there anybody that I can get in contact with that will be able to help me with this? Any info to get me going in the right direction will be appreciated...

    Well Hello There

    So, a tentative Hello to you all I'm 32 and have been unemployed for the last 4 years. For that reason alone, my partner will be the main applicant so I have chosen not to take the IELTS nor convert my degrees with WES. Currently, we're coming up to that halfway phase so there's only the work reference letters to go. I would really appreciate it if someone could advise me about my prospects in Canada since I will be starting from scratch. Given my skill sets, I would say that I would initially be applying for care giver positions though I am open to suggestions. Which begs the question: Should I have gotten my degrees authenticated for use in job applications in-country? My degrees are BA. Psychological Counselling and Honours BA Psychology. Any insights would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a bunch

    Job Poll

    I have a question and not sure if it was asked before, so please direct me if I should have posted this in another section. I would like to know how many people on this forum had a job offer before moving to Canada. Do the majority of people start the immigration process first, complete all of that and then leave or is the majority going over on a WP based on skill and then look for work there. Maybe the Forum Moderators can help to create this Poll??
