Introducing a new innovative guide for skilled immigrants
January 29, 2021
Canadian Immigrant magazine and Windmill Microlending have partnered to launch the Skilled Immigrant Career Success Guide, a new resource to help skilled immigrants overcome employment barriers in Canada.
With more than 400,000 immigrants set to come to Canada annually for the next three years,* it’s crucial to set up skilled immigrants for success, especially after the federal government announced a plan to bring in more than 1.2 million permanent residents by 2023.
As past experience has shown, it can take years for a skilled immigrant to re-establish themselves in their professional field in Canada due to barriers to employment such as foreign credentials recognition and lack of Canadian work experience. To help them navigate these challenges, the Skilled Immigrant Career Success Guide offers a step-by-step roadmap for internationally trained professionals to achieve career success in Canada. It provides the information they need to transfer their skills into the Canadian labour market and learn strategies to help them achieve career success.
“The rate of immigration in Canada will continue to increase in order to grow Canada’s population and economy now and after these difficult times,” said Sanjay Agnihotri, publisher of Canadian Immigrant, a national multimedia platform to help immigrants succeed in Canada. “Our goal is to set newcomers up for success with the information and tips they need.”
“We realize that providing a low interest loan is only part of the support that a skilled immigrant needs to achieve career success in Canada. By partnering with Canadian Immigrant, we are pleased to create this valued resource, which captures and enhances the important information we have developed though providing loans and support to over 5,700 skilled immigrants over the past 15 years,” says Claudia Hepburn, Windmill Microlending Chief Executive Officer.
The guide features fresh, strategic and inspiring content, filled with expert advice, providing skilled immigrants with the information they need on job search trends, in-demand career skills, affordable career loans and educational credentials.
The guide is free to users and articles will be published twice a week from now until March 30, 2021 on www.canadianimmigrant.ca.
