Building strong partnerships to support immigrant success

By November 9, 2012August 6th, 2019Uncategorized

Career Edge Organization, along with Skills International is pleased to support an exclusive partnership with the Canadian Immigrant Integration Program (CIIP), a program funded by the Government of Canada, developed and implemented by the Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC).

CIIP provides pre-arrival orientation workshops to Federal Skilled Workers (FSWs) and Provincial Nominees (PNs) while they are still overseas during the final stages of the immigration process to help prepare for their economic success in Canada.

Currently under this partnership, job ready and top talent candidates are identified by CIIP Overseas Officers before their arrival in Canada, and are referred to Career Edge Organization.

CIIP referrals complete an expedited, virtual Career Bridge pre-screening interview process to provide competitive advantage for:

  • Early identification of top talent and relevant international work experience pre-arrival to Canada
  • Faster, more efficient recruitment of internationally qualified top talent through the fast tracked Career Bridge pre-screening
  • Expansion of the Career Bridge paid internship program across Canada

For employer partners, this ensures that these Career Bridge program registrants are not only well qualified, but possess the skills recency and level of preparedness to start their internships as soon as they arrive in Canada.

A number of internationally qualified professionals have already found success through this partnership, including Hong Bin Liang and Lei Chai, who you may remember from our Valentine’s Day interview.

Career Edge Organization looks forward to strengthening this unique, collaborative partnership to continue putting highly qualified, internationally trained talent to work in organizations across Canada, while supporting immigrants looking to hit the ground running in their chosen careers.
