    I think that immigration hurdles are going to be your biggest challange. Once you get to landed immigrant status, you can compete for any ff job on the same footing as everyone else.

    Start here.

    I can't speak for cities in Eastern Canada, but in Western Canada you'll find opportunities in the cities of Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary, and Vancouver.

    If you search for the city name and "fire department" and you'll find links which include the hiring competition details.

    Good luck.

      Definitely. Jobs in Health Care (i.e. Nurses and Doctors) are much easier to get sponsorship for, but Fire Dept jobs are flooded with qualified applicants, so it will be much tougher. If you can apply and get your landed status on it's own, as rualfire mentioned, you will have a better chance.

      Aside from that, the Western departments aren't too picky on your qualifications. Pro-Board Certified is best, but most depts run thier own fire schools now anyway, so a good FF work history will go further.

      Large Eastern depts (i.e. Ontario), are a lot pickier, and often require specific pre-employment training and certification. Again, you'll have to go and contact them to see if your experience will be given equivalency.

      Most city depts like Ottawa, Toronto, Hamilton, etc, have Websites.
      Never argue with an Idiot. They drag you down to their level, and then beat you with experience!

        Canada, like many other countries, will be needing thousands of firefighters in the next few years as many of the 'baby boomers' seek retirement. Besides that, many of the larger cities in Canada are growing by leaps and bounds. A good place to start is www.cafc.ca Hope that helps
