Those migrating to Canada from Dubai should note that as of January 2021, information technology and business operations have proved to be among the best ways for immigrants to take up permanent residency in Canada.

It is difficult to quantify the highest paying jobs specifically due to the variation in salaries among provinces and companies. Therefore, it is more effective to list 10 of the top industries, in no particular order, that have increased labour demand, and are considered to be among the higher-income bracket:

  • Software Development
  • Food Service
  • Information systems
  • Computer Programming
  • Administration
  • Finance
  • Hospitality
  • Advertising, Marketing, and Media
  • Post-secondary education
  • Healthcare

An accounts payable and receivable clerk may be of interest to those who have experience in using accounting software or being able to record and maintain financial data. Businesses now need to record incoming and outgoing payments, and invoices to have reliable and effective cash management and a better understanding of their financial standing. Many of the jobs offered allow working remotely.
