What kind of recruitment services do you offer to construction and engineering candidates?
Our recruitment agency serves these sectors and is called Outpost Recruitment.
We work with a number of Canadian general contractors, subcontractors and engineering consultancies to help them source talented international workers.
Our clients (companies) pay us a fee to supply them strong candidates and we never charge a fee to the candidate (job seeker) to find them a job.
The assistance we provide to a candidate is limited to the demand for labour in the area, so we are not in a position to find a job for every candidate who contacts us.
Find out more at the Outpost Recruitment website.
Should candidates wishing to immigrate pay a fee for recruitment services?
No, it is illegal in Canada to charge fees to candidates. Please ensure that you do not pay any employment agency a fee to find you a job.
When is the next Express Entry draw taking place?
Express Entry Draws are used to select candidates who are then invited to apply for permanent residency.
The timing of these draws is entirely at the discretion of immigration authorities and Moving2Canada receives no advance notice of when they will occur.
We do however update our Express Entry Draw article as soon as there is an update. Be sure to check this page regularly for the latest news.
