Travelling to Canada


I am travelling to Canada to explore the industry that I work in (I am a computer engineer from UAE). I plan to visit Ontario and Alberta including the cities of Toronto, Calgary, and Edmonton. In addition to visiting these cities can someone please recommend where it would be useful to visit in order order to find companies hiring computer engineers?


While you’re in Toronto,if you have access to a car you could do a trip to Waterloo. Pretty sure U of Waterloo has quite the computer engineering program so maybe could arrange to talk to a professor at the university. Also Waterloo is home to RIM (Research in Motion)which I can only imagine hires quite a few engineers. Waterloo is around a 1-2hr (traffic dependent) drive west of Toronto. Can also use public transit to get there (GO bus or GO train).
