Skills Connect for Immigrants Program

Are you a skilled immigrant looking for work? We can help you find work that utilizes your skills and experience.

Skills Connect helps skilled immigrants and internationally trained professionals to put their experience to work in BC. If you are unemployed, or working in a job that under-utilizes your skills, we can help you:

  • Assess your skills and experience
  • Improve your English Language Skills
  • Get industry-specific skills training
  • Learn about the Canadian workplace
  • Network with employers
  • Obtain employment

Our team of employment professionals will work with you to develop and implement a career action plan that will enable you to secure personally meaningful employment. Contact us if you are a Permanent Resident who:

  • arrived in Canada within the past 5 years,
  • is unemployed or under-employed, and
  • has intermediate or advanced English language skills.

The BC Skills Connect for Immigrants initiative is a provincial strategy to help skilled immigrants move quickly into jobs that match their qualifications.
