A Range of Employment Resources

New immigrants to Canada can count on a number of programs to help them to find their first job here. “Immigrants alone do not have all the tools to market themselves. The requirements are different even according to the sector or the employer,” says Irene Sihvonen, director of Services of Acces Employment Services.
The first step for the newcomer is to look for the nearest employment resource centre. These agencies provide a shortcut to understand the local job market, to validate foreign credentials and experience, to learn how to show your skills properly and to find and connect successfully to employers. There you will find training programs, resources, information, contacts in the community and people who can help in your job search.
Job search workshops
Among the most popular programs offered, job search workshops teach effective job search practices and techniques to immigrants. Newcomers obtain orientation about the Canadian labour market. You can learn how to assess your own skills, how to write effective résumés and cover letters, how to fill out employment application forms, and how to network with employers. You will also learn successful interview techniques and workers’ rights and employment standards. After the workshop, participants can count on support, job leads, free access to computers, internet, printers, telephones, faxes, photocopiers, networking and childcare.
Programs are offered to landed immigrants, convention refugees and live-in caregivers with intermediate level of English. To find the nearest job search workshop, visit www.jswontario.org or call 1-800-813-2614.
Skills for Change is just one of the many agencies offering job search workshops. More information can be obtained by calling (416) 658-3101 ext. 234 or by e-mailing jsw@skillsforchange.org.
