Career and Employment Workshops for Immigrants & Newcomers
Immigrants and newcomers to Canada are invited to join this monthly workshop series!
The first hour (10 to 11 a.m.) will be a hands-on workshop on a career/employment topic, and the second hour (11 a.m. to 12 p.m.) will be an open practical session to apply what you learned or work on any other employment-related task with access to a Settlement Worker and a WorkBC Employment Advisor to answer questions.
Bring your own computer or borrow one from the library. Registration is required – click here to sign up. If you have any questions, please contact Bec Tan at the Whistler Welcome Centre by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 604-698-5960.
