the Story behind GISjobs.ca
The original Canadian GIS jobs site started back in 2003 while I was completing my Applied Geomatics Research graduate diploma at COGS. At the time I was like most students perusing my next career move, however this time around, was a mature student with several years of experience under my belt and had already gone through the job hunting process several times. Therefore, I was no longer at the stage where I applied for every GIS related job I could find and instead focused more on the jobs I was really interested in.
While at COGS I often received many job postings through my various networking channels and contacts I had established over the years, which I would often forward along to colleagues that I knew were also looking for geomatics related work.
At that time, there were several good GIS job related websites available on the Internet but none of them were dedicated to Canadian jobs, so it was usually a challenge to find GIS jobs, if you were looking to work in GIS and also stay here in Canada. There were plenty of jobs available but you had to work hard to find them and often know where to look and who to contact.
Therefore I decided to include a small section on my personal web site (that I was using to show case my geomatics skills) where I would post some of the jobs that were sent to me to help others who were having trouble finding Canadian GIS related jobs. This made it easier for me and helped ensure I didn’t miss anybody when I was forwarding emails with job opportunities.
I eventually stopped posting GIS jobs after I graduated and secured full time work at PCI, however people would still email me job opportunities and often various colleagues would also still email me to see if I knew of any good jobs.
I then decided to start up the small GIS related jobs section again but this time would make it a completely new site with functionality that would employers to post jobs, providing job seekers with a place to find Canadian related jobs.
The look and functionality of the site often changed over the years but the focus always remained the same, provide a place on the web where job seekers and employers could come together to share GIS job opportunities available in Canada.
Now 13 years later, I am still getting job opportunities come my way and the Canadian GIS and Geomatics employment website continues to provide Canadians with a place to find GIS and geomatics related jobs here in Canada.
GIS jobs or geomatics employment opportunities
Join one of the hottest growing GIS & Geomatics job groups on LinkedIn (… simply click the banner to go to the group and then click the Join Group button above … ) that we started because we noticed that although there are many employment based groups on LinkedIn there was no actual group created to help out Canadians looking for geomatics related jobs.
The Jobs in GIS & Geomatics for Canadians group allows members to let others know that they are seeking new employment opportunities or share information about Canadian jobs (links to job sites, links to company career pages, job postings etc.). It is free to join and there are no fees to post your jobs. Employers can post links or short posts about their GIS jobs or geomatics employment opportunities and Job seekers can create posts to allow potential employers that they are seeking work.
We have been posting information about job postings we come across on our Gis job board site as well as ones that are emailed to us and encourage more people to start using the group.
