About the Canadian Job Bank
The Canadian Job Bank is run by the Canadian government and is closely linked and associated with Express Entry. If you are familiar with Express Entry, the Job Bank will connect Express Entry applicants with potential employers in Canada. The Express Entry program permits skilled workers to apply for different working visas through an online procedure that chooses the best applicants to fill industries in critical need of skills in Canada. The Job Match tool matches you to prospective employers, based on their unique requirements and profiles. At the point where a match has been made, the employer will get the details of the qualified candidates who best meet the prerequisites.
Most of the time, businesses wishing to procure a foreign national must register with Employment and Social Development Canada’s (ESDC) Job Bank and post their employment promotion for at least 30 days and additionally meet other publicizing necessities. If a Canadian or permanent resident is not found, employers can expand their job advertisement and widen their hopeful pursuit to incorporate foreign workers. If a foreign worker is found, the business can then apply for a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). The business must apply for a LMIA, keeping in mind that the end goal is to employ the foreign hopeful.
Managers will require a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment result to make a qualifying job offer to a foreigner under Express Entry. Should the Express Entry applicant apply for the job opportunity, the employer will then be required to experience their standard interview or evaluation process. In the event that the employer finds that the Express Entry applicant meets the requirements, and they are qualified to hire a foreign national they can offer a job.
As of January 2016, the job bank got an entirely new look and did a total revamp on their website. Though we’re already five months in, the “new” website, it is much easier to use with a great fresh design.
