Starting today, registered job seekers and employers on www.APLJobs.ca will notice some changes that have been developed in response to the sponsorship eligibility changes for eligible candidates of the Provisional Register Conditional Practice in Alberta that came into effect on May 29th, 2015.
Sponsorship Changes and APLJobs.ca: what registered job seekers and employers need to know
To maintain a high level of service to APL Job seekers and employers by providing up to date information on current opportunities in Alberta, the following changes will be in effect, starting today:
- Every current posting on APLJobs.ca has been clearly identified as “sponsorship eligible” or “non-sponsorship eligible”.
- Only applications from eligible candidates applying for sponsorship eligible positions will be accepted. There will be an automated message sent to candidates who apply for a position for which they are not eligible.
- A mandatory update is required from current job seekers to indicate whether they have an independent practice license in another Canadian jurisdiction. Physicians who are currently in independent practice in another Canadian jurisdiction may not require an assessment to practice in Alberta. New job seekers will also be required to complete this field.
- A sponsorship message has been added to various screens within www.APLJobs.ca with details regarding the recent changes, and a link to additional information.
- A new filter to enable job seekers to search positions by sponsorship eligibility has been added.
Employers are now required to include salary information in their position postings. We have developed a scale of salary ranges to select from, and this is now a mandatory field in the job posting template. This change ensures APL job seekers and potential applicants have access to the information they need to make decisions on posts of interest.
