The Canadian government is assisting overseas professionals in obtaining a job faster. This will help in the growth of the nation’s economy as well as the strengthening of the middle class. Member of Parliament for Oakville John Oliver announced a fresh project that will be of immense help to the overseas trained professionals in the healthcare sector. They will now be able to get recognition of their credentials faster and get a job more quickly.
Oliver announced this on behalf of Employment, Workforce Development, and Labour Minister Patty Hajdu, as quoted by the Newswire CA.
The Canadian government is spending around 812, 000 dollars in the next 2 years on the project. It is the ‘Internationally Trained Health Professionals Career Accelerator’. Through this investment, the Multicultural Council Halton will assist around 160 highly skilled freshly arrived immigrants. These must possess required education and experience in the healthcare sector.
The freshly arrived immigrants will be assisted to secure and plan career levels and overcome hurdles. They will also be assisted to obtain professional work experience in Canada to realize their maximum potential for the labor market.
The Canadian government is assisting to decrease employment barriers to highly skilled freshly arrived immigrants by funding this project. It will also help them in quickly identifying long-term and meaningful jobs in Canada.
The health care sector in Canada, specifically Ontario is confronted with an aging workforce. The scarcity of workers in the health care sector cannot be addressed without arrivals of highly skilled immigrants from this sector.
The Budget for 2017 had announced Newcomers Targeted Employment Strategy to assist freshly arrived immigrants with recognition of their credentials. It also aimed at helping them with quickly obtaining work experience in Canada so that they could identify jobs matching their experience and skills.
The strategy consists of 3 components. These are services for pre-arrival, stable program for loans, and a pilot to assist fresh highly skilled immigrants in obtaining work experience in Canada.
