Hello Cijo,

Thanks for sharing your situation and questions with us.

As you may already know, some jobs, like engineers, are regulated in Ontario. This means you need a licence. It can take some time to get a licence. You can find some detailed information on the process on the Ontario Immigration - Working in Ontario website in the Engineering section.

You might want to work in a non-regulated job in your field first. Just like you mentioned, it can be a good way to use your related skills and also, at the same time, get Canadian work experience.

You can find some information on working in your profession on the Ontario Immigration - Working in Ontario website in the Engineering section.

On this Ontario Immigration - Working in Ontario , you can find more information in the Career Map: Engineer section about every step ofthe registration process, including language requirements, industry trends, labour market conditions, the credential assessment process, licensing fees andother important information.

You will also find information on internship and bridging programs available on the Ontario Immigration - Working in Ontario website.

Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that you will find employment in the engineering field upon arrival in Ontario.

However, you may want to connect with the nearest employment service that works with foreign trained professionals including engineers. You can find some helpful information in these Settlement.Org What are bridging programs for internationally-trained professionals and tradespeople? and Where can I find job skills training programs? articles.

You may also want to contact some agencies that provide programs specific to engineering before you arrive. Many of them have information and referral specialists or employment counsellors you can speak to.

You can find some listings of settlement agencies in our Services Near Me section.

To find some information related to salaries and cities where there are positions available in your field, you can find some information on the Job Bank website. This website used to be called the Working in Canada website.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
