I want to work and earn. Work as a welder in Canada.
How many had to listen to complaints, that here I work all my life as a welder at a factory, in housing and communal services, etc. (at domestic enterprises are not very high salaries), the Sabbat does not work out very much. And now, for 15 and / or more years of work, it was not possible to earn either a good car or a decent rest, etc. who has priorities …
Of course, a high level welder, handy and with a head on his shoulders (plus a bit of luck) can earn on his native land – oil pipelines, gas pipelines cook, etc. There are also enterprising specialists who open workshops or, with more money, whole welding shops, where they provide services for welding everything that is made of metal, from pipelines and fences to boiler equipment and cars. However, it seems that such successful workers are a minority. Most still dissatisfied with the level of their income.
In one of the evenings spent in meditation, why not think about working abroad, where the production capacity is greater, salaries and living standards are higher. You can work anywhere, industrially developed countries a lot. Today we decided to stay in such a distant country as Canada, and talk about the peculiarities of local employment there. Below is the information that is interesting first of all for applicants.
A welder is one of the professions that is very in demand in Canada, as there are many companies that deal with machine building, metallurgy and the construction of bridges, skyscrapers, etc.
For work it is necessary to have a license, which is required mainly in the province of Alberto. In other provinces, a license is usually not required, but preference is given to certified specialists. You can get a certificate from the Canadian Bureau of Welders.
Experience of at least 2-3 years is required, preferably MMA, TIG, MIG / MAG, as well as fully automatic equipment, as progress does not stand still and processes are increasingly automated, less human intervention is required. Demand for gas and plasma welding / cutting specialists who can work with powdered wires, with laser, contact welding and submerged arc welding are in demand.
A welder in Canada earns between $ 16 and $ 30 per hour. Average salaries: Quebec and Ontario $ 19 / hour (Toronto – $ 20 / hour), Alberta – $ 33 / hour. A vacancy can be found in almost any construction company and many are due to the fact that the demand is very high, ready to make a call to a foreign worker for the arrival and employment.
What are the requirements usually put forward by the employer?
Complete secondary education, experience, preferably welders courses, graduated in Canada.
In case you do not have a lot of experience in Canada (2-3 years), some companies are ready to accept the employee as an assistant welder (working with a mentor, a more experienced specialist). In order to eventually get a good salary, you need to work several years with a partner (for example, a master’s student) and only after that you can start working independently for a higher pay.
It should be noted that it is very difficult to get to work in Canada from Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Ukraine. It is necessary to have the following data:
solid work experience in your country; Referral letters from employers (what kind of employee you are, how you carry out your duties, how much quality); good level of English.
Also, you should be prepared to interview the company at one of the visiting sessions, for example, in Europe, or in one of the countries of the former Soviet Union. After this, you need to sign a contract with the employer and get permission from the province you are going to. As a rule, we are talking about welding metal structures high-rise buildings (at least, there should be no fear of heights) for at least 40 hours a week. Accordingly, the work is heavy, always in demand, but highly paid.
There are situations when companies are ready to recruit foreign workers and even pay for the cost of the flight. Contracts can be of two types:
1 year; 1,5-2 years without the right of residence and back home; 1 year and the right to stay in the country for further work as a welder.
Also you can work as Self-employed. There is no semantic analogue in Russian for this term, but the word is close in meaning to freelancing.
