A job offer from a Canadian employer can significantly increase your chance of being invited to apply for permanent residence. Under Express Entry, candidates with job offers can claim extra Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points. A job offer is also an eligibility criteria for many Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) aligned with Express Entry.
According to this report from Statistics Canada, more than a quarter of Canada’s workforce is made up of immigrants. With an aging population and significant labour shortages, Canada’s need for skilled workers is greater than ever.

First of all, you should know it is illegal to ask someone to pay for a Canadian job or a job offer letter. Any job offer letter should have the company’s official letterhead, and should contain their contact information.
Update your resume or C.V. and cover letter: A resume, sometimes called a curriculum vitae (CV), is a document that contains details about your education, achievements, and employment history.
Your resume and cover letter will often be the first thing an employer looks at. It is important to make a good first impression. Your resume should include all relevant work experience as well as achievements you are proud of, both personal and professional. Your cover letter should explain why you are right for the job.
Research: Spend some time doing research about companies where you think you would like to work. You can visit their websites to get an idea of the company culture and to find out about any job openings.
Use social media to your advantage: Social media is a powerful networking tool that can help you along your job search, if you use it the right way.
References: Strong references help employers learn more about you and your employment history. This can be a valuable resource when job hunting. Asking previous employers in your home country to provide references can go a long way to landing you a job in Canada.
Follow up: In a competitive job market, checking in with the employer and showing enthusiasm for the job can set you apart. You can follow up after submitting your resume to demonstrate your interest, and also after an interview to thank them for their consideration.
