Engineers and other professionals trained in other countries can now receive one-on-one employment counselling in Alberta. They can also participate in job shadowing to help them find work in the province.
“Alberta needs a supply of workers with the right mix of skills to meet the needs of employers,” said Alberta Human Resources and Employment Minister Clint Dunford in early November. “We are pleased to contribute $1.8 million to the Centre for Foreign Trained Professionals to help over 1,000 newcomers with a professional designation find employment over the next three years.”
The Centre is located in Edmonton and operated by the Bredin Institute. It helps new Albertans tap into employment and career services.
