Virtual Event Series

Online Support for New Canadians

'New Canadians' are organizing a special virtual event series - which they are calling Café New Canadians - to give expert tips, information & resources. They have got lots to share – from boosting productivity when working from home to up-skilling for that dream job, acing video interviews to virtual networking 101 & exploring Canada as a newcomer while staying indoors. The free & casual virtual events are also an opportunity to ask any questions newcomers might have regarding career, settlement, or other areas.


They have planned virtual chats every Tuesday, Thursday & Saturdays. In addition to Zoom, the sessions will be live streamed to YouTube.
