Hope you’re fully fluent in English .... that will be your #1 requirement.
System analysts are a dime a dozen here. It’s going to be very difficult for you ....

What sort of visa are you coming to Canada on?
And where are you coming from?

Please be advised that there will be hard competition and low wages. Many newcomers nowadays are end up stuck in low tier jobs such as taxi-driving or laborers. Then, they either shamefully return home. Please do not follow this sad path.

In first time when I get the redflag forum, so many user pushed down me because I have English problems.
They blame me and humiliated mу.

I got my English Canadian Diploma with Awards and Honors.

I got non minimum wages jobs and I keep one

Not only excellent English is important, but you are - your professionalism ans soft skills

I continue my education and I am trying to get new profession even anglophones are scared to get.

We are immigrants and we must be better and we are not looking for a job within 15 minutes away of home

Good Luck and Welcome to Canada

Lol. I am just giving a realistic advice. I am not trying to make a provocative comment or "troll" others.
It is much better nowadays for immigrants to stay and improve their own country than waste their time immigrating here. They might even have a better life there. Just look at countries in Asia.The world itself can be improved if every country becomes developed instead of just Canada and USA.

Every country has its down and up period. So when Canada and USA are in crisis (outsourcing, high youth unemployment, financial debt..etc.) are everyone just going to pack up and leave?

1. Try the major banks: TD, RBC, CIBC, Scotiabank, BMO (use search engine)
2. Work as a contractor first if you have to, www.ajilon.com, www.moduscanada.com
3. If you're working for an international company right now, ask for a transfer
4. If you're working for a company which does outsourcing, approach your Canadian clients
5. Better if you get into a large company which has a diversity program as you may be impacted by lack of opportunity in a family-owned business
6. Bring written references from your past and current employers plus telephone numbers (they will call to check references)

Locals and new immigrants do not have trouble finding new jobs. People with mediocre resumes and/or relevant work experience have trouble finding work.

Go to a job agency if you have experience.
Get a certificate at a well known Canadian College or University while you continue applying for jobs.
