  • I understand there are many opportunities for mechanical engineers in Canada. Only 70% of the posts can be filled with the existing mechanical engineers and there is a gap of 30%. This fact is revealed in a survey conducted by "Canadian Association of Professional Engineers". There are many companies that hire mechanical engineers in different posts based on their qualifications and experience.
    You can apply for a Canada Permanent Residency (PR) status in two ways.
    1. Express Entry Program
    2. Provincial Nominee Program
    The first one is a process designed to have a fast track entry of engineers to fill the existing vacant positions. They will follow comprehensive Ranking System(CRS) points for selecting the candidates for fast track entry.
    Main parameters considered for this program.
    A. There is no age restriction but 18 to 35 aged candidates are given preference.
    B. IELTS and CLB tests are to be taken to prove language fluency.
    C. Higher qualifications will be considered for additional points.
    D. Higher experience will get you higher points.
    E. If a sibling or spouse is staying in Canada may get you higher points.
    Once you complete the above screening your application will be moved to the Express Entry pool if the minimum points criteria are achieved in the screening test. Then they will be taking draws to select the people for PR status. We will be given 90 days time to apply for PR status from the date of their invitation to apply for PR status.

    Candidates with less score and not considered for the Express Entry pool has to apply for PR through the second method that is Provincial Nominee Program. Each Canadian province has its own eligibility criteria. You can refer to the website of Canadian government website to know about the eligibility criteria.

    Employment opportunities for mechanical engineers can be found in all aspects of the industry.
    The aerospace, energy, manufacturing, and transportation industry recruits more mechanical engineers. They also will get employed in agriculture, mining, pharmaceuticals, waste management, road transport and defence industries also. Designing, maintaining, new products and system development are some of the areas where mechanical engineers will have employment chances. They can also work in research fields and teaching fields.
