"There are many types of skills that can move us forward in life. There are those technical skills we learn in school or on the job as well as the ever-important transitional skills we accumulate throughout our lives through our experiences, interactions and daily life. In working with newcomers to Canada, our team believes in the importance of these skills and helping newcomers recognize them in themselves. Often times, they are not able to work in their field of study from their home country, so recognizing the skills they can transfer to other areas of employment is crucial to their success along their career path.
