canstockphoto7627252

Roadmap to Employment is a program delivered in partnership with the Lebanese and Arab Social Services Agency (LASSA) and the Catholic Centre for Immigrants (CCI). It is a one-year project funded by United for Refugees and Community Foundations of Ottawa.

This program will assist refugees and newcomers in general with lower language skills who are looking to obtain employment commensurate to their skills and education.

The overall objective of the program is to facilitate the integration of Syrian refugees and newcomers into the Ottawa labour market through:

  • Individual needs assessment
  • Pre-employment group training
  • One-on-one pre-employment support
  • Workplace orientation and cross-cultural communications training
  • Hands-on activities related to resume writing, job interview practice, and professional networking; and
  • Follow-up activities to ensure a successful outcome for each individual

World Skills is committed to support our clients in their integration process in Canada and to continue working in partnership with different organizations toward the common goal of helping them succeed.
