During years, the Canada labor market is expected to increase demand for:
- representatives of customer service;
- delivery service drivers;
- retail workers;
- security analysts;
- administrative assistants and IT specialists;
- procurement and supply chain specialists;
- specialists in information technology and technical support;
- warehouse workers;
- housewives and cleaners;
These types of Canada job vacancies are the most suitable for immigrants. What about others, that will be the best for the seekers without education or knowledge of language?
Work in Canada’s agriculture and food industries can be extremely varied and not necessarily on the farm. Advanced research and innovation are being conducted in this area to address global challenges. After all, the demand for food, especially organic, in this country is growing steadily.
Canada’s climate is favorable for growing cereals. That is why Ukrainian labor migrants are invited to sow and harvest.
Farms in Canada are often specialized. Therefore, the work is offered to specialists of a narrow profile. It is important for Canadian workers to have more than a year of experience and language skills. In most cases, low-paying jobs with heavy work schedules await universal professionals. And those migrants who have work experience and relevant specialization can apply for a higher position and a good income. For example, it could be a veterinarian, an engineer or an agronomist.
Salaries in Canada
The annual minimum wage is revised in Canada based on unemployment and other factors. There is no single indicator, and the level of the “minimum” can vary depending on the province in the range of $ 8.8-11.33 per hour. With 40 hours of work week, Canadians receive at least $ 1,500 a month.
Foreign labor migrants can earn:
- agronomist € 2,896;
- veterinarian € 4,501;
- tractor driver € 3,543;
- trader € 4,106;
- logistician € 2,896;
- mechanical engineer € 1,540;
- driver € 3,849;
- zootechnician € 3,208.
In Canada, a minimum of 15% tax must be paid if the annual salary does not exceed $ 35,000. The maximum tax rate is 33% if the salary starts from $ 155,000. It is also necessary to pay to the pension fund 9.9% (half is collected from the employer) and 4.51% of insurance premiums.
The cost of living in Canada
Again, housing prices in Canada depend on the region. After all, each province can apply its own tax rules.
The average cost of renting a one-bedroom apartment in Ottawa (per month) will be $ 460 – $ 770. We should also not forget about the mandatory utility bills, which include the removal of gas, water, electricity and garbage. They depend on the area of вЂ ‹вЂ‹ real estate. For example, for a room of 35 square meters you have to pay $ 80-90.
Transport in Canada runs according to the schedule and there can be no question of delays. A bus ticket can be purchased from the driver for $ 1.5-2. It is also possible to buy a monthly pass, which will cost about $ 40. One trip in the subway will cost $ 2-5, and seven trips – $ 14-20.
If you live in Canada for more than three months, your health care will be covered by insurance. This is most often taken care of by the employer, as state insurance in the country is mandatory. If you do not have a policy, get sick and decide to call an ambulance, you must pay $ 500-600.
Despite the fact that the rate of labor migration has decreased somewhat, the problem of outflow of personnel is not less painful for all industries, including agriculture. Last year, the volume of remittances of Ukrainian labor migrants from Europe was equal to the amount of money received for the export of agricultural products to the EU.
