May 28, 2018 – Canada’s economy is expanding and this means there are many excellent opportunities for international skilled workers to work in Canada. Canada’s fast-track immigration system called Express Entry is perhaps the quickest way for skilled workers to immigrate to Canada.
Among many occupations that have strong growth, a career as a Business Analyst is near the top of the list.
A Business Analyst is constantly looking for ways to make a business run more smoothly and efficiently, meaning a range of technology skills and financial acumen is required, depending on the specifics of the role. Larger operations may employ several analysts for different areas of their business.

What Does a Business Analyst Do?
A Business Analyst’s job is to constantly analyze the performance of a business, looking for efficiency savings and ways to making things run more smoothly. Typical duties will include monitoring, planning ad improvement of information systems across a whole business, often involving multiple departments. Data metrics, overseeing reports for distribution and cross-business communication are all key parts of a Business Analyst’s role.
This will depend on the specific business, but core qualifications and experience in financial analysis, project management and big data will always be a plus. Commercial banking or treasury experience may also be sought by potential employers. Much of the work is done using computer programs such as Excel, so proficiency here is also important.
As with other more general-business roles, there are no Canada-specific requirements for a Business Analyst. It is, however, worth considering the type of businesses that are thriving in Canada, including everything from technology start-ups to major farming operations. All businesses of a certain size will require analysts, so check out the landscape first before making your move.
