The Newcomer Advantage
Join Our Sector-Specific Networking & Mentorships Project!
Newcomers bring a wealth of experience, knowledge, and skills to Ontario, and are critical to the future of Canada’s workforce. Unfortunately, newcomers continue to experience multiple barriers that prevent entry into their field of training. These challenges have been further exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Newcomer Advantage is The Career Foundation’s response to the ongoing employment challenges that newcomers face today. We are pleased to host this platform for newcomers so they can hear directly from industry leaders, network with professionals, and access sector-specific mentoring opportunities that will equip them to enter their fields and advance in their careers.
There is no cost to participate in this program.
