Do you have education and work experience from another country but can't find the right job in Canada?
Integrating into the workforce is one of the most important goals when you're new to Canada. However, many internationally trained professionals face multiple challenges during the job search: lack of professional connections, interview questions related to their "Canadian work experience", and limited knowledge of the workplace culture, are some of them.
Workplace Preparation (also known as Enhanced Language Training) is a FREE online program funded by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada offered to qualified newcomers that are looking for a job. In the program, you will receive all the support you need to overcome those barriers so that you can successfully integrate into the Canadian job market. There is a new intake every six weeks.
