I’ve written about Hidden Canadian Government Gems before. Essentially these are government services that I have discovered through my consulting work, which are not always well known, yet extremely valuable. One in particular is a client of ours WorkinginCanada.gc.ca (part of HRSDC). Essentially, they have created an incredible mash-up tool that allows you to search for an occupation that you’re interested in and receive up-to-date, accurate information from a wide variety of integrated databases. It puts certain private sector fee-based tools to shame. It was initially developed for skilled immigrants looking to work in Canada, however once you try it out yourself you’ll realize that it’s useful for domestic audiences as well.
