Over the past few years, Canada has gained a lot of attention among Indians. One of the major reasons is Canada’s post-study work permit, an easy pathway to acquire a Canadian permanent residence visa.
Having said that it is also vital to make the right choice while choosing a course and institution. Spending hard-earned money and other resources for an ordinary or no job are pointless. So, you should opt for a course that gets you the desired job attracting a good salary package.
You can go for a course that offers thorough knowledge in Java, Python, Linux, SQL, cloud technologies so that you get a job of a Developer. Canada also has extensive demand for IT Project Managers, Business, Network Security Engineers, database, quality assurance Analysts. Based on your skillset and experience, the annual average salary could be at least CAD 51,300 and may go up to CAD 1,23,500.
Aiming to get into top universities based out of major cities and provinces to undergo technical training in IT courses may not help your cause due to the prevailing stiff competition. Explore smaller provinces as well. They not only provide quality education but also enough job opportunities. And in due time, they can help you acquire a Canada PR visa as well.
Commerce and Accounts
If you want to pursue a career in financial services, accounting or commerce-related field, there are courses like Chartered Accountancy, Cost and Management Accountant, Certified Financial Planner and so on. Such courses may bring you an average salary of CAD 40,900 or even a six-figure pay packet, depending on your qualification. However, there is also a consistent demand at lower levels of accounting and bookkeeping.
In case, you have scored less in grade 12 or have a low IELTS score but still aspire to study in Canada, you may consider studying trade courses meant for bakers, carpenters, automotive technicians, electricians, plumbers, refrigeration/air-conditioning mechanics, heavy equipment operators, crane operators, etc. The truth is that these trade experts make more money than MBA degree holders. A licensed tradesperson may draw as much as 30-40 dollars per hour on the job.
