Canadajobs.com: Post Jobs through an XML Feed

Thank you for choosing to post your employment opportunities with Canadajobs.com.

Want to get all of your jobs before our thousands of daily visitors quickly and easily?

Send us your complete database of jobs through an XML feed. We will retrieve the feed regularly to have your most up-to-date jobs added to the site.

Please note: Postings sent through this method are not yet added to the site. We are adding your feeds and are in the testing stages. Until you receive a confirmation, please continue to post your positions through the online form. We will inform you when your positions are online through the feed.

It's completely free!

There is no charge to post positions on Canadajobs.com. We offer equal weight for all employers and postings: We do not charge for clicks to your jobs.

As such, our job results are based on what the candidate is looking for, and bring back results most likely to suit the candidate, which, in turn, helps you atract the best people for the job... at absolutely no cost.

Best Practices

Postings must be for salaried or hourly waged positions. We do not accept posts for business opportunities or strictly-commission based / freelance types of job postings. We only index the highest quality feeds and jobs. Please only submit positions located in Canada. Do not spam the index by adding keywords, etc. We give priority to feeds with well formatted jobs (proper capitalization/not all capital letters).

Our XML Schema

We've kept our schema simple and easy to implement. Please check back here regularly as we will be adding new fields to what we are indexing. Please enclose your content in <![CDATA[...]]> tags to reduce errors.
