Jan 24 2023

Event Details

Where: Webinar
Date: January 24, 2023
When: 10:00 AM

This webinar, hosted by ISSofBC’s BC Refugee Hub, will focus on innovative employment programs for refugees and refugee claimants. We will share challenges, best practices and successes in supporting newcomer refugees and refugee claimants in connecting to meaningful employment in the Canadian labour market.

We will hear from YWCA’s Afghan Women’s Employment (AWE) program, an employment and training program that supports Afghan refugee women in exploring and securing careers or further education in Canada.

We will also hear from ISSofBC’s Gateway to Tourism & Hospitality Jobs for Newcomers program, a free program that helps immigrants, refugees and refugee claimants access free fully funded training opportunities to find tourism and hospitality jobs.

Learn about both programs approaches, challenges, successes and program models during this live webinar. We will have plenty of time for a Q&A session with our speakers.

This webinar is suitable for those working in front-line positions, coordinators and managers at settlement service provider agencies, as well as community stakeholders who work with and support refugees and refugee claimants.
