How to Get There

As mentioned earlier, there are several ways to immigrate to Canada as a waiter, namely the Express Entry System, the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program, the International Experience Canada Program, the Rural and Northern Immigration Program, and various Provincial Nominee Programs.

The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program

The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program is for applicants who wish to immigrate to Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador or Prince Edward Island. It is an employer-based program designed to help the province fill the current labour gap with qualified applicants. You can apply for one of the 3 programs in the pilot program:

  • Atlantic International Graduate Program
  • Atlantic High-Skilled Program
  • Atlantic Intermediate-Skilled Program

All 3 programs require proof of language proficiency in English or French, educational qualifications and work experience, and sufficient financial resources to support yourself and your family.

The International Experience Canada Program: Working Holiday Visa

The Working Holiday Visa offers young people between the ages of 18 and 30 the opportunity to travel to Canada to work and gain valuable work experience. The main requirements are that your country has an agreement with Canada that allows you to apply for an IEC work permit (International Experience Canada) or that you use a recognized organization (RO). You must also meet the specific criteria of the country or territory of which you are a citizen and the pool for which you are applying.

There are 3 categories you can choose from:

  • Working Holiday
  • Young Professionals
  • International Co-op(internship)

To immigrate as a waiter in the hospitality industry, you must apply for the working holiday category. The great thing about this program is that no job offer is required.

Provincial Nominee Program

The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is province and territory specific. 11 of Canada’s provinces and territories have their own PNP, which allows provinces to nominate individuals deemed suitable to make an economic contribution to the region. Applicants must have a job offer to apply through one of these provincial or territorial programs of their choice and meet the specific criteria of the region’s PNP. Applicants who receive a nomination from a province will receive 600 points added to their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score, optimizing the likelihood of permanent residency upon immigration to Canada.
