Work experience program

Women: A step towards employment

This programme allows for young immigrant women to learn about and to integrate the Canadian job market.

The goal of the programme is to help the participants overcome any barriers that they may be facing to obtaining employment.

 

They will have the opportunity to develop the skills required to find and keep jobs over the long term. An emphasis is placed on understanding and assessing transferable skills. During the preparatory weeks at Petites-Mains, the project coordinator will work in collaboration with the participants to find a suitable company to do their eight month work experience.  The participants will be supported during the entire program to ensure their successful integration into the work force.
