What is it like living in Burlington, Ontario, Canada?

Living and Working In Burlington, Ontario

Burlington was not only rated best city of its size in Canada for 5 years running, it was also recognized as municipality of the year by Festivals and Events Ontario in 2016! Situated on the shores of Lake Ontario and conveniently located between Toronto & Niagara Falls, the beautiful city of Burlington awaits. Burlington has developed from a quiet bedroom community to a savvy, vibrant waterfront city. Strategically located in the Greater Toronto Area, Burlington offers a quality of life that is second to none with great schools, shopping, dining, recreational facilities, parkland, festivals and night life all available within the city. But don’t take our word for it. Visit the City of Burlington website and find out more.

What’s it like working in Canada?

You may be curious about the Canadian working culture in general and what to expect should you choose to apply to a position with us. Here are some general facts to get you started.

  • Average working hours: the standard hours of work under the Canada Labour Code are 8 hours in a day and 40 hours in a week.
  • Holidays: statutory holidays vary across provinces but there are nine at the national level.
  • As in the UK, the typical way to apply for jobs is with a cover letter and CV (commonly known in Canada as a résumé). Your CV should include the standard information such as your contact details, past employment, education and skills and should usually not be longer than two pages.
  • You don’t have to supply references on your CV but you should be prepared to provide them at your interview. You might be expected to give work-related, academic and personal references.
