Skills Development Fact Sheet: Credentials and Integrating Immigrants into the Workforce (2011)

This brief document is part of a series highlighting initiatives undertaken by Canadian sector councils to deal with problems in the labour market. Sector councils are industry-led organizations that address issues in skills development and implement labour market solutions in key sectors of the economy.

In this document, the authors focus on initiatives that help immigrants become integrated into the Canadian workforce. The programs they describe include a website providing career information in 12 languages; an online program that allows immigrants to earn credentials while they are still in their home countries; and a guide that presents 12 case studies showing how tourism-related businesses have applied diversity practices to successfully recruit, integrate, and retain internationally trained staff.

The document was prepared by The Alliance of Sector Councils (TASC), the coordinating body for more than 35 sector councils and similar organizations in Canada.
