Imagine a recruitment agency which delivers a great short list matching your brief in about (1) week not in weeks like other placement agencies. Hard to fathom, but true: In just days West One Consultancy Group Inc. can provide fully-vetted, interviewed candidates who are an excellent match to your staffing requirement.
You pay only in full, the remainder of the placement fee when the right staff or executive has been found for you.
We can do it this fast because our approach to staff recruitment is dramatically different from traditional staffing approach. And our results speak for themselves.
An unfilled executive position represents huge opportunity costs for the organization, and a tremendous burden on other executives who must cover for the role. Traditional retainer-based recruitment arrangements lack the sense of urgency that is needed at today’s pace of business.
That’s why 60% of companies are now struggling with even the most basic elements of sourcing office and executive talent, despite 80% having established relationships with placement agencies. Long delays in filling corporate staff positions and the frequency of bad hires have made traditional recruitment methods less and less satisfactory.

In January 2015, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) will launch a new electronic system called Express Entry to manage applications for permanent residence in certain economic programs. Canada needs high levels of immigration to meet current and future labour market needs, which will ensure our economic growth and long-term prosperity.
Express Entry will allow us to actively recruit, assess and select skilled immigrants under the following federal economic immigration programs:
the Federal Skilled Worker Program,
the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and
the Canadian Experience Class.
Provinces and territories will also be able to recruit candidates from the Express Entry system for a portion of the Provincial Nominee Programs to meet local labour market needs. Under this new system, employers will also have a key role in selecting economic immigrants. Employers will access candidates through Canada’s new and improved Job Bank and through provinces and territories where applicable.
The Express Entry system involves two steps:
Step 1) Potential candidates complete an online Express Entry profile
Potential candidates will complete an online Express Entry profile where they will provide information about their skills, work experience, language ability, education, and other details. Those who meet the criteria of one of the federal economic immigration programs subject to Express Entry will be placed in a pool of candidates.
Candidates will be ranked against others in the pool. Only the highest-ranked candidates (those deemed to have the best chances for economic success), and those with qualifying offers of arranged employment or provincial/territorial nominations, will be invited to apply for permanent residence.
If a candidate does not already have a valid job offer from a Canadian employer or a provincial/territorial nomination, he or she must register with the Government of Canada’s Job Bank which will connect him or her with eligible Canadian employers.
Where applicable, employers will be required to obtain a Labour Market Impact Assessment from Employment and Social Development Canada. There will be no fee for Labour Market Impact Assessments for permanent residence applications under the Express Entry system.
Completing an online Express Entry profile does not guarantee that a candidate will receive an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence.
Step 2) Citizenship and Immigration Canada will invite certain candidates to apply for permanent residence and process their electronic applications within six months.
Candidates will receive an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence if they rank among the top in the pool, based on their skills and experience. Candidates who have a valid job offer from a Canadian employer (subject to the Labour Market Impact Assessment process in place at that time) or have been nominated by a province or territory will be given high scores in the ranking system.
Candidates will have 60 days to submit an electronic application for permanent residence through one of the following programs:
Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP);
Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP);
Canadian Experience Class (CEC); or,
A portion of the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)
Citizenship and Immigration Canada will process the majority of complete applications (i.e. applications including all the necessary supporting documents) within six months or less.
Candidates in the Express Entry pool who do not receive an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence after 12 months may resubmit their profile and re-enter the pool if they still meet the criteria. This provision will prevent backlogs and ensure quick processing times.
Express Entry will result in faster and more efficient service to potential skilled immigrants. It will also allow the Government of Canada to be more flexible and responsive to Canada’s changing economic conditions and priorities.
This webpage will be updated on an ongoing basis.

If you are interested in working in Canada as a nanny, caregiver or au pair, the Live-in Caregiver Program may be suitable for you.
Live-in caregivers are individuals who are qualified to provide care for children, elderly persons or persons with disabilities in private homes without supervision. Live-in caregivers must live in the private home of their employer in Canada.
There are four main requirements you must meet to qualify under the Live-in Caregiver Program:
You must have successfully completed the equivalent of a Canadian high school education.
You must have six months of full-time training in a classroom setting or twelve months of full-time paid employment, including at least six months of continuous employment, within the past 3 years, with one employer in a field or occupation related to the job you are seeking as a live-in caregiver.
You must have a written employment contract between you and your future employer. The contract defines your job duties, hours of work, salary and benefits.
Obtaining an offer of employment in Canada
In order to work in Canada as a live-in caregiver, you must first locate a prospective employer in Canada. The visa office cannot assist you in locating an employer in Canada. You are not required to use a placement agency for the purpose of locating an employer.
Once you have located a prospective employer in Canada who wishes to employ a live-in caregiver, your employer must send a request to the Human Resources and Social Development Canada (HRSDC) /Service Canada.
HRSDC/Service Canada will then provide a labor market impact assessment (LMIA) to the employer and Citizenship and Immigration Canada. The LMIA is an assessment of the likely impact that the hiring of the foreign worker may have on the Canadian labour market. Your employer should send a copy of the LMIA to you.
You both must then sign an employeremployee contract that meets the labour standards and working conditions in the province where you will be working.
Information specific to individuals applying from the Philippines
Below is further information on requirements for the Live-In Caregiver Program which is specific to individuals applying from the Philippines.
Successful completion of the equivalent of a Canadian high school education
A person graduates from high school in Canada (other than Québec) after 12 years of education. Since high school diplomas in the Philippines are generally obtained after a total of only ten (10) years of schooling, at least two (2) years of post-secondary education, in which the student has obtained at least 72 units of credit, would be necessary to meet this requirement.
This requirement will help to ensure that applicants for permanent residence will be able to succeed in the general labour market. Studies indicate that the majority of new jobs in Canada require at least a high school education.
Successful Completion of Related Training or Experience
Your training or experience should be in early childhood education, geriatric care, or pediatric nursing, to name just a few areas. If you are a licensed registered nurse, with experience, you are normally considered to meet this requirement.
In order to qualify, the six-month training course must have been completed as part of formal education taken at an institution accredited by the local education authority. In the Philippines, TESDA (Technical Education and Skills Development Authority) is the “local authority. To verify if a particular training school has the necessary accreditation, please refer to the TESDA website.
In addition to being TESDA-accredited, your training must also comply with the requirements of Canadian immigration legislation and policy. Full-time training must be completed within a period of at least six months with a minimum of 25 hours per week in a classroom setting. Time spent performing on-the-job training or a practicum is not considered part of your required training, even though this may be a TESDA requirement. Correspondence courses, evening and weekend classes are also not considered as “full time.”
NOTE: If your classroom training is less than 6 months, this will result in the refusal of your application.
As a quality control measure, embassy officials periodically monitor caregiver training institutions to ensure that the schools meet the requirements of the Canadian legislation and policy. If your caregiver school does not meet the required standards, you may be deemed not to have met the Programs requirements and your application may be refused.
A number of institutions in the Philippines have developed a “six month caregiver course.” These are in no way affiliated with, or accredited or certified by the Canadian Government or the Embassy of Canada.
It is recommended that you exercise due diligence in choosing a training centre. The onus is on you to verify that the school is not only TESDA accredited, but also that the training complies with the requirements of Canadian immigration legislation and policy.
In order to meet the criteria for experience, you must have completed one year of full-time paid employment, including at least six months of continuous employment with one employer, in that field or occupation. Your experience must have been obtained within the three years immediately prior to the day you submit your application for a Work Permit.
Ability to speak, read and understand either English or French
Please be advised that you are encouraged to undertake language proficiency testing (IELTS or TEF) and provide the results as this is the best way to provide proof of language skills. Information regarding these examinations is available online at IELTS and TEF.
Valid employment contract with your prospective employer
The contract defines your job duties, hours of work, salary and benefits. The contract also reinforces your employer’s legal responsibilities towards you. This requirement helps provide a fair working arrangement between you and your employer. It also provides each of you with a clear understanding of what is expected of the other. The employer will send the proposed contract to you for review and signature before the job offer is validated by Service Canada/Human Resources&Skills Development Canada.
An important requirement of the program is that you must live in the home where the person being cared for resides. Also, the employer must be able to show that they are able to fulfill the stipulations of the contract (for example, the employer must show that they are able to pay your wages based on the amount agreed and provide you with a private bedroom with a lock and key).
NOTE: In determining the income required to hire you, the visa officer makes a decision based on the information supplied by the Service Canada/Human Resources and Skills Development Canada Labour Impact Assessment (LMIA), the caregiver, and the employer. This decision compares the declared household income and the family size of the employer (including any family members sponsored under the “Family Class” immigration category in the last 10 years) with the Low Income Cut Off (LICO) supplied by Statistics Canada plus the expected annual salary of the caregiver. For more information on LICO, please visit CIC.
Applying for a work permit
The signed contract is part of the documentation that you must submit together with your application. Once you have obtained that signed contract and a positive labour market impact assessment (LMIA), your next step is for you to apply for a work permit at this visa office. Please refer to how to apply for a work permit for details.
All applicants who apply for a work permit must complete a medical examination. You will be advised regarding this requirement after we have completed our initial review of your application.

Canada’s New Residency Program for Skilled Trades-persons
In the last 3 years that Canada has offered a faster way to become a permanent resident through the Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) program, skilled workers or trades-persons have always been left behind.
The list of occupations eligible to apply for permanent residency under the FSW program was reduced from 400 to 36, then to only 29. The list included professionals such as doctors, nurses, managers, therapists, architects, and tradespersons -including electricians, plumbers, heavy duty equipment mechanic, crane operators, carpenters. Each occupation was allocated 1, 000 visas each, then the number was reduced to only 500 per occupation worldwide.
New Federal Nominee list
This affects you only if you applied on or after May 4, 2013. If we got your application before that date, we will process it using the rules that were in effect at that time.
You must have one year of continuous, full-time (or an equal amount of part-time) paid work experience, in at least one of these occupations within the last ten years:
0211 Engineering managers
1112 Financial and investment analysts
2113 Geoscientists and oceanographers
2131 Civil engineers
2132 Mechanical engineers
2134 Chemical engineers
2143 Mining engineers
2145 Petroleum engineers
2144 Geological engineers
2146 Aerospace engineers
2147 Computer engineers (except software engineers/designers)
2154 Land surveyors
2174 Computer programmers and interactive media developers
2243 Industrial instrument technicians and mechanics
2263 Inspectors in public and environmental health and occupational health and safety
3141 Audiologists and speech-language pathologists
3143 Occupational Therapists
3211 Medical laboratory technologists
3212 Medical laboratory technicians and pathologists’ assistants
3214 Respiratory therapists, clinical perfusionists and cardiopulmonary technologists
3215 Medical Radiation Technologists
3216 Medical Sonographers
3217 Cardiology technologists and electrophysiological diagnostic technologists
These occupations are either:
Skill Type 0 (management occupations) or
Skill Level A (professional occupations) or
Skill Level B (technical occupations and skilled trades)
Despite being skilled in their craft with years of experience gained through working in the Middle East, Europe and other Asian countries – tradespersons who are undergraduate college and high school graduates – rarely figured in the 500 visa allocation for them. For example in 2011, only 1, 000 visas were issued to tradespersons out of the 10, 000 total visa allocation.
Because these tradespersons lack years of formal education, diploma, certificate or degree and English proficiency. The new residency program announced by Canada will change all that.
New Dedicated Category for Tradespersons
Now Canada has created the Federal Skilled Trades Category (FSTC).
Who will qualify: The new FSTC would be open to skilled tradespersons with experience in the following occupations:
Industrial, Electrical and Construction Trades
Maintenance and Equipment Operation Trades
Supervisors and Technical Occupations in Natural Resources
Agriculture and Related Production
Processing, Manufacturing and Utilities Supervisors and Central Control Operators, Chefs, Cooks
Bakers and Butchers.
Occupation must be in the Skilled Level B of Canadas National Occupations Classification (NOC);
Employment offer of at least one(1) year duration, or a Certification of Qualification from a provincial or territorial Apprenticeship Authority;
Two-year work experience in the same skilled trade in the last five (5) years;
For more information on how to qualify for the new residency program for tradespersons , feel free to call our office at 1-604-378-1969, to schedule a telephone inquiry with one of our lawyers/Visa Counselors
WORKING TEMPORARILY IN CANADA
Every year, over 150, 000 foreign workers enter Canada to work temporarily in jobs that help Canadian employers address skill shortages, or to work as live-in caregivers.
A work permit is needed for most temporary jobs in Canada. Some jobs do not require a work permit.
If you intend to work in the province of Quebec, you must obtain a certificat dacceptation du Québec (CAQ) before a work permit can be issued.
If you intend to work in the province of Alberta, please ensure that you read and become familiar with the Government of Albertas brochure Temporary Foreign Workers: A Guide for Employees
