Connecting more Canadians with jobs



Finding a job can be difficult, whether you’re a student looking for part-time work, an electrician seeking a job closer to home, or a teacher moving to another province to be close to family. Every day, millions of Canadians turn to Google to kick-off their job search. Now, this journey is simpler with the new job search feature on Google in Canada.

The feature connects people to job opportunities by putting the convenience and power of Search into the hands of job seekers from Victoria to St. John’s. No matter who you are or what kind of job you want, you can find job postings that match your needs. We introduced this feature in the US last June, and since then, we’ve seen 60 percent more employers showing jobs in Search and connected tens of millions of people to new job opportunities.

To trigger the job search feature, enter queries on Google search with the word jobs, such as “jobs near me,“ "summer jobs,” “government jobs,” “work from home jobs,” or “jobs in Canada.” You’ll see in-depth results of job postings from across the web in one place, on Android, iOS, and desktop.

Geography is an important consideration in finding a job. The “location” filter shows a range of distances, from 2 km to 300 km away from your location. You can also view jobs “anywhere” if you don’t have a location preference. And if you’re signed in, you can even see how long it will take you to commute for some job postings.

Searching for a job can take time, and keeping up with new job postings can be challenging. Now, if you step away from your job search, you can pick up right where you left off by “saving” job postings. You can also turn on alerts for your search to receive email notifications when new jobs are posted that match your criteria, keeping you up-to-date and on top of your job hunt.

We’re working with a number of organizations from across the industry to bring you the most comprehensive listing of jobs—including the Canadian government’s Job Bank/Guichet-Emplois, BCJobs.ca, LinkedIn, Glassdoor, Monster.ca, Jobillico, Jobboom, and other Canadian providers. You’ll see job postings from these sites and others across the web all in one place, as soon as they’re posted.

To ensure that even more jobs are listed over time, we’re publishing open documentation for all jobs providers, from third-party platforms or direct employers, detailing how to make their job openings discoverable in this new feature.

Whether you’re looking for your first job, better pay or work closer to home, we hope this new feature on Google will help make your job search simpler and more effective.
