Working in Canada: A Guide for Newcomers

The experience of finding a job in a new country can be as exciting as it is complex and confusing. In order to assist you in that task, we have combined basic information and useful links to help you prepare before leaving your country and upon arrival in Alberta. These pages are intended to provide you with essential information and access to the resources you need to join the workforce in Alberta. Wherever possible, website information is available in English. However, some websites are only available in French.

Holders of work permits, potential immigration candidates and Francophone newcomers in Alberta will especially benefit from this information. To save you time and avoid problems and disappointments, you will need to do certain things before your arrival in Alberta, while others can wait until you get here. The more informed you are, the better your integration and the clearer your choices and decisions will be.

We hope this information will be helpful and that you will soon visit accès•emploi to take advantage of our services and resources and to benefit from our help in your job search. Note that our office is located in Edmonton, Alberta's capital. We also have an office in the Northeast region serving the communities of Lac la Biche, St. Paul, Bonnyville, Cold Lake and Plamondon. Our services are free for the unemployed who are actively searching for a job.
