Building Success for Immigrants with Essential Skills: Knowledge Sharing Webinar (2012)

This presentation shows the highlights of a webinar hosted in March 2012 by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) to discuss the importance of Essential Skills for immigrants in today’s knowledge-based economy.

The webinar focused on three specific initiatives: an Ottawa Local Immigration Partnership (OLIP) focusing on economic integration, education, health, and other needs; a project in Winnipeg, Manitoba, that looked at a new approach for linking Essential Skills with the teaching of Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB) 1-4 and English as an Additional Language (EAL) literacy; and a discussion of the Centre for Excellence in Intercultural Education at Alberta’s NorQuest College.

The webinar also included a discussion of the nature of Essential Skills and a look at the tools and resources available through HRSDC’s Office of Literacy and Essential Skills (OLES).
