TORONTO—During the month of April, Skills Ontario is offering the Rise Event Series for new Canadians.
Attendees can virtually attend presentations on every Wednesday of the month for free to hear from a panel of skilled professionals who are also newcomers. Topics will include resources, overcoming barriers, pathways and more.
The first event in the series will focus on building resumes and cover letters and will provide information on services for newcomers to support settlement, employment and building community connections, indicates a Skills Ontario release.
The second event will focus on interview preparation, the third will feature tradespeople who are also newcomers; and the last session in the series will give attendees tools and resources regarding entrepreneurship.
“As an organization dedicated to empowering youth to explore careers in the skilled trades and technologies, we work to ensure that all Ontarians feel welcomed and included in these fields,” said Ian Howcroft, CEO of Skills Ontario, in a statement. “Through our programs and initiatives, we emphasize that the skilled trades and technologies are suitable for all. We will continue to put our efforts into making sure all Ontarians feel included, heard, and appreciated.”
