Champions for World Skills – Coaching for Success is an initiative which engages local employers and other stakeholders to be advocates for newcomers and to use coaching as a strategy to advance their integration into the Ottawa labour market.
Networking and lack of sector specific knowledge are two of the biggest barriers for newcomers to secure employment. Professionals in Ottawa can provide support to our newcomers through various forms of coaching and employers can gain access to the largest pool of newcomers in Ottawa. Employers like Business Development Canada, TD Bank, Epocal, The City of Ottawa, and the Federal Government are already tapping into this pool! Since 2010, 325 newcomers have secured paid internships with the Federal Government through the Federal Internship for Newcomers Program.
