How easy is it to get a job in Ontario?
Me and my family are hoping to move to Ontario in the next year from the UK. We are all Canadian Citizens so applying for visas/ passports etc is not a problem. This is because my mum is Canadian and was born in Canada.
However, she has not lived in Canada for 20 years. She has a Canadian degree of finance/ accountancy from Carlton but she has worked in the UK for the past 20 years.
If we come to live in Ontario again, how easy would it be for her to find a finance/ accountant related job?
Her Canadian friend from Ottawa has advised us it would be hard for her to get anything because she would be 'viewed as a foreigner' because she has been out of the country for so long. However, Canada has many immigrants, many of whom are employed so surely this is a little pessimistic?
Would it be harder for her to get a job because she has been out of the country for so long?
Also, compared to unemployment in the UK, would you say Canada has more jobs available? This is what we believe, but we just want to clarify the situation.
