Job Guide.....

General overview
Ontario Job market for foreign trained professionals

Every year over 100,000 new immigrants come to Ontario. That’s nearly 40 percent of all Canada’s immigrants. There is no doubt that it’s every newcomer’s desire to find a well-paid job that match skills and qualifications in their possession. Ontario has many opportunities to offer newcomers, however; finding a job that matches your skills and qualifications takes hard work and sometimes it can also take time. Be prepared.

Regulated professions & Regulatory bodies
In Ontario, some professions set their own standards of practice. These are known as regulated professions. We believe that the majority of the University of Peradeniya alumni migrating to Canada have the potential educational qualifications and experience that is essential to register with these regulatory bodies. So, our focus here is to provide some guidance to University of Peradeniya alumni migrating to Ontario to register with relevant regulatory bodies and to find a professional employment.
The following is the list of regulated professions and professions with protected titles in Ontario.
