Canada is a big country, but most immigrants still settle in the country’s biggest cities – like the Greater Toronto and Metro Vancouver areas. This has a big impact on their settlement and integration as there are significant differences in the cost of living and employment opportunities across different communities.
JVS Toronto partners with local agencies in smaller communities through Project Welcome, to connect pre-arrival immigrating professionals to occupation-specific mentors in communities across Canada. In this webinar, part 3 of our “Canada Beyond the Big Cities” series, you will hear from our partner South Okanagan Immigrant & Community Services (SOICS) and learn more about the South Okanagan-Similkameen region.
Our presenters will share information about:
– Living and working in the region
– Job opportunities and trends
– How you can connect to a mentor through Project Welcome
