  • Emigrating and firefighting jobs? Canada?

    Does anyone have any experience emigrating to a different country as a firefighter? Wondering about the process of finding a job, getting immigration sponsorship, reciprocity of certifications, etc.

    Specifically Canada..

    Canada is tough for even legal immigration. They basically have the same immigration laws as the US but they actually enforce their laws.

    My recommendation is to check out the Canadian Government's Immigration website and that will give you all the info you need. Also, dont be shy and start calling up FDs up there. Talk to a recruiter or personnel services to get info as far as sponsorship goes and also ask what are the realistic chances of a non citizen getting hired.

    Also, Canada isn't too pleased with the US right now when it comes to COVID. So adding that into the challenges you'll face trying to immigrate, its gonna be pretty tough.

    Good Luck!

      Guys in Canada come down to Texas to get certified then go back and compete for YEARS to get hired on. There is a lot of contracting jobs in europe, but language becomes an issue
