To visit Canada, you must meet certain requirements:
• have a valid travel document, such as a passport
• be in good health;
• satisfy an immigration officer that you have ties, such as a job, home and family, that will take you back to your country of origin;
• satisfy an immigration officer that you will leave Canada at the end of your visit; and
• have enough money for your stay. The amount of money you will need can vary with the circumstances of the visit, how long you will stay and whether you will stay in a hotel or with friends or relatives. For more information, ask the Canadian visa office in your country or region.
A Canadian Vishttp://thevisacentre.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=179&action=edit&message=1itor Visa will allow you to visit Canada for up to 6 months.
Visas are available under three different categories:
A Single Entry Canada Visitor Visa:
This allows you to visit Canada only and is valid for a period of 6 months only. You can apply to extend your Canadian Visitor Visa if needed and will need to make an application for extension at least 30 days before expiry.
A Multiple Entry Canada Visitor Visa:
This allows you to enter and depart Canada on multiple occasions and is valid for up to 6 months, depending on the issuing case officer. You will need to specify how long you will require your Canadian Visitor Visa (not exceeding a six month period) and leave it to the case officer to decide if this is necessary.
A Transit Canada Visitor Visa:
This visa was initially designed for those people entering Canada for a period of 48 hours or less. For example, if your method of transport has to stop in Canada and you are from a country that requires you to have a visa to visit Canada, you will require a Transit Visa.
Part Time Work
Job opportunities in Canada are varied and diverse; your ability to find a job in Canada is directly related to your fluency in English. The more comfortable you are with English the better, as the customer service sector is where you are likely to find work. Retail is the most popular choice for part time work in Canada but there is are great opportunities everywhere if you know where to look. Finding part time employment in Canada is not difficult and there are usually student unions and employment advising centres that will help students find suitable employment that will give you more than just a pay cheque at the end of the day. These services are aimed directly at finding relevant and satisfactory work for students and can be very helpful to those who utilize them. Students can expect to work as waiters, shop clerks, office assistants, kitchen hands, customer service reps, junior camp counselors etc. Be sure to check out your schools website as they should have job search engines that will help you figure out what kind of employment you are looking for.
Usually, part time workers make the general minimum wage rate which is between $8.75 $10.25/hour, however, as students, companies may pay you a student rate which is $9.60/hour in Ontario , be sure to clarify this with your employer at your interview so you can have a full picture of what your job will entail. Working at a mall will usually result in a general minimum wage.
