Canadian GIS Employment Resources
[page last updated Feb 2018]
One of the hardest jobs to do during your career can often be finding the job itself, especially in such a niche industry like Geomatics. However the increased use and exposure of the Internet has led to many great resources to help you out and we have taken the best resources and posted them here to help you.
If you know of any good Geomatics Employment web sites or resources that are not listed here then let let us know so I can post them here and share the with others.
Canadian Employment sites
Geomatics Geo Employment was one of the first Canadian only GIS employment web sites designed to help Canadians find jobs in the GIS industry with out the need of moving to the USA. The site has been online since 2004 and has helped thousands of young professionals find Canadian GIS jobs. It has evolved over the years, recently partnered with CanadianGIS.com, and now provides jobs in all aspects of Geomatics. There is also now a LinkedIn Group that focuses just on Canadian GIS & Geomatics jobs. And it is free to join.
[You may have already realized that there are not too many job sites that specialize just in GIS and Geomatics related jobs, therefore I have included other sites below that provide geo related jobs as sometimes some of them post Canadian jobs.]
The Department of Geography and Environmental Studies at Carleton University have created a pretty good detailed list of Geography-Related Job Websites that you may want to check out (including job boards, organizations and companies that regularly hire).
