Next Stop Canada is excited to announce a partnership with ACCES Employment and the Canadian Employment Connections program.
This is an employment-focused program that helps pre-arrival newcomers to find employment before they arrive in Canada with a special focus on six major sectors. ACCES works closely with their clients to ensure that they find meaningful employment prior to arrival in Canada.
A Sector-Specific Approach
Pre-arrival newcomers will work with a specialized team at ACCES who will familiarize you with information you need to navigate your sector in Canada. Their sector-specific approach to job search equips you with a unique advantage that takes effect as soon as you begin your job search. The program works with newcomer professionals in the following sectors:
- Leadership/Management (multiple sectors)
Sales and Marketing
ACCES Employment hosts an e-learning platform where you will be guided through learning modules on four topics that are integral to professional success in Canada:
Job search tools
Canadian business communication strategies
Sector orientation and trends
Talha is a new Canadian who recently landed from Pakistan. Talha was one of the very first job seekers to take part in the Canadian Employment Connections program. For him, the pre-arrival program at ACCES was so informative that his transition upon arrival in Canada was much easier.
Just two weeks after landing in Canada, Talha began the Financial Services Connections program at ACCES Employment’s Toronto site. This was an extension of the pre-arrival program he had completed, with a greater focus on the Financial Services sector.
By the time I landed nothing was shocking for me, it wasn’t a surprise; I didn’t experience a culture shock or job market surprise because I was so well informed by ACCES. The program gave me an edge in understanding employer expectations, and how to attract hiring employers; every part of the program was essential to my success.
