Education and Training
Newcomers to Kingston are generally well-educated but may face difficulties in having foreign credentials and experiences recognized, as well as learning about Canadian work culture. At the same time, international students at local post-secondary institutions can greatly benefit our community if the supports are in place for them and their families.
Goal 1: Newcomers with international training, credentials, and experience find opportunities for a faster and more effective transition to Canadian employment.
Goal 2: International students at local educational institutions find the support and opportunities needed to work and live in Kingston.
Goal 3: Service agencies and employers offer workplace integration training for newly-hired immigrants.
